Thats what I had tried. Hmm, I guess I'll have to give it another shot.

Hi everyone, new to this forum and even new to the Evo 3.

I'm from Germany and I got mine from the US last month. When I used it during a run for the Tamiya Euro Cup I noticed the problem with the front gears stripping after a crash. I think I'll try the mod from BigDogRacing. Thanks for that.

But I noticed another thing. When I hold the car in the air and accelerate, one of the front one-way joint (MJ6) moves slightly out of the one-way (2-3 millimeters). Is this normal or should I do something against this e.g. putting an o-ring inside the joint? I have 4 washers MD3 on each side.

Hi Hemi
Welcome to the forum. I´m using an o-ring inside the outdrives with each of my oneway cars so with the EVO3 also.
Regarding the washers I can´t say currently how much I´m using but it´s one less than in the manual.

Regarding the onewaygears there is a problem when you are running the Tamiya Euro Cup as you are not allowed using any custom parts or modifying any Tamiya parts. This is one reason why I´m not running Tamiya Cup.

Thanks V12, thanks for the answer. I will try an o-ring inside the joints.

I've another question. To use side by side cells in the Evo, you have to dremel out the lower chassis. This seems to be allowed.

And there is a carbon plate part from Tamiya to reinforce the front one way gear. I really doubt that the modification from BigDog will be seen as a forbidden tuning method but I will check that out.

Hi Hemi, welcome!

There is a carbon plate which comes with the Surikarn edition, but it doesn't stop the gear from stripping. Having said that, mine survived quite a long time before I had to replace it - even with some reall big crashes.

But now I've change to a Jürgen one-way and an Alu one-way gear - both of which aren't allowed in the Tamiya Cup - one of the reasons why I don't drive there either!

Cheers, Mark.

be careful with the battery slots. You only have to remove a little so I wouldn´t use a dremel but a little file. Otherwise your batteries are sitting to low in the chassis.

Mark is right about these custom parts. Both are working extremly well. Maybe Tamiya will allow using the aluminium gear as they got a batch produced for them on special order. But I´m not sure about this but you could ask at the Tamiya support.

Hi V12,

Are you using the Alu-Gear and the Jürgen one-way, too? Does using the Alu-Gear not cause the gear on the drive-shaft to wear out?

Cheers, Mark.

Hemi, stateside Big Dog's pinning trick is not allowed because it's seen as re-engineering the chassis so I don't think it would be allowed in the Eurocup either. Sorry

Hi Mark
I´m using the Jürgen oneway only. I sold my aluminium gears as I had no need for them as this oneway works so extremly good.

You can´t use the aluminium gear with the Jürgen oneway without modification.

From what I know the aluminiumgear doesn´t cause the pinion gear to wear out if centered correctly.
But as the aluminiumgear is so strong you may damage the piniongear now in a very hard crash. But the chance for this is way less than the original onewaygear problem.

And with the Jürgen one-way, do you see any wear on the one-way gear at all?

Mark.

Talking

I see. It would cost tamiya a lot, since the sales of one way ring gears and pinion gears would drop dramatically

One more thing: I've seen a lot of people here using selfmade battery holders (or xray parts) to keep the batteries in their 414s in place (instead of tape). Would this be considered TCS or TEC legal?

I use two selfmade alumium posts with the original carbon battery plate and I wonder if this would be ok (I threw out all the plastic battery holders including the center piece.
