No, I canīt see any wear on the oneway gear. Infact itīs still the same gear Iīm using since I bought the Jürgen oneway. I canīt remember when I bought it but itīs at least half a year since then.
I donīt know why there is no wear at all but maybe itīs because Iīm using the Square gearboxes also. These do have a more precise fit for the bearings and canīt tweak.

@Hemi
I think both are not legal.

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.

Cynically seen, Tamiya would loose some sales on Gears, but maybe gain back some potential buyers of future products. I like my EVO III Surikarn a great deal, but the way Tamiya have ignored the problem would make me go to a more friendly company next time!

I don't know if you know the German forum for the Tamiya Euro Cup:

Those guys will be able to tell you what is allowed - as they run it

Cheers, Mark.

The only thing that wears out for me is the bevel gear. I see no wear on the one way gear.

Hi, I'm kinda new on here and with the evo 3! Finally got my surikarn sorted after having it for about 2 or 3 months with no electrics in, raced it on saturday and was definately impressed at how easy to drive it was and how quick it was! The car seems dead responsive and i would have to say its the best car that i have owned!

Default SQUARE EVO3 Tuning Chassis Plate

Hello

Does anyone know the Tuning Bottom-Chassis from SQUARE?

STB-1 or STB-1B?

Can anyone tell me the difference between them?
Any experiences with them?

Looking for a new bottom plate.
Any other suggestions than SQUARE?

Thanks!

Purchase the 3mm one from tamiya i'm not to sure if your going to find better then that.

i think the difference between the square decks is that they have the motor placement on different sides..

When I was in Japan, I had three different kinds of lower decks from different manufacturers in my hands and had my mind set on picking them up but after closer inspection, some needed to be reshaped (front bumper area) another didn't have proper droop screw locations, and the other one was milled out lower but did not have battery holes cut out...wtf? Anyways, I never found one that blew me away so I ended up getting two 3.0mm Tamiya chassis. Much better imho

What would interest me, would be a chassis with a saddle pack battery arrangement - obviously I haven't understood something, but it amazes me that the EVO III goes so well, when a lot of the weight is on one side.
Surely it is more efficeint to have the battery weight split on both sides?

Look at the TC3, the XXX-S, The Yokomo SSG SD Car, the Schumacher Mi2, the Corally Assassin, the MY02/415, and the HPI Pro 4. They all have 6-cells on one side and the electronics on the other

Yes, this is true - Xray is one of the few which has the choice, but I still don't understand why there aren't more cars with saddle pack arrangement - the suspension must, in theory, be better setup when there is an equal left-right weight distribution.

Shaft drive cars have torque steer. Other than that, I can't figure any other reasons other than cosmetics to have the batteries on one side.

However I personally prefer side by side packs than nasty, cumbersome saddle packs (every tried clapping with a saddle pack? fireworks! )
