Hey gents,
Posted some time back but I still need your help. I'll be running the EvoS for the first time and the course is a tight , technical , asphalt track. Tires will be CS27 and motor will be MVP, Core Stock or Peak Hellfire. NO ONEWAY allowed. Anybody out there have a good setup they can recommend ??? I have one ( Thanks Aurra Sing) but I could use a couple more. Thanks in advance !!!

Hey Evoracer. Here's a setup from the Dave's at Tamiya. I hope this helps...

Also, with this setup, you'll need to grind the top corner of the front rear suspension block a little bit so that they do not interfere with steering.

does any one have both the tb-02 and a surikarn? I want to compare the driveshafts in both thes cars

According to people at my local track If you use the hole the pin goes through for the spur gear adapter as a reference point you will find the tb-02 shaft is a bit longer in the front than the evo3 shaft.

can any one comfirm this?

If this is true then I should be possible to stop the stripping of bevel gears without having to resort to pinning the front bevel gear. stripping the ring gear is not a problem for me, just the occasionaly bevel gear and ballhead king pins which I am having trouble finding.

does any one have a part number for just the ball head kinpin on its own?

thanks

If you are stripping your bevel gear, check the notch on your shaft. If it's worn then replace your shaft. It is a cheaper and longer lasting fix than replacing the bevel gears. Before I replaced my shaft my bevel gears last for about 4-5 runs or less. I noticed that I am replacing the bevel gears more and more frequently even though I been more careful with my driving with less crashes. After I replaced my shaft last week I have had 10 runs or so and there has been no wear on the bevel gears whatsoever.

Default shaft lengths

putting the evo3 (SE and Lim Ed) side by side with the TB02 shaft it will be noted that the TBO2 shaft is longer by about 2mm. blue version and the tb02 are of the same length.

thanks for the info maverick

I will look into getting a TB-02 drive shaft


jeffreylin

So far I have partially stripped the "d" on 2 bevel gears but this is due to the fact that the drive shaft is too short in my opinion as the end of my drive shaft is still good with no noticable wear.

i think i can get away with using the damaged bevel gears in the rear diff as the driveshaft extends ouf far enough to stick out of the bevel gear.

You are right! both the new light weight propeller shaft and the blue shaft are slightly longer than the red surikarn shaft. Is this Tamiya's fix for the problem? Thus far the light weight propeller shaft performs great with no damage in any of the gears after 10-12 runs.

An other option is this.

Tech Racing have a new impoved lightweight floating shaft for the TB02 with all parts made of aluminium and o rings for self centering and less chatter.

Are there any pictures of the new light weight propeller shaft?
And how much is the weight difference to the stock propeller shaft?

They have a website but it's in Japanese. I tried emailing before but never heard back from them.

They are just thinner in the middle than the regular aluminum shaft. Saves just a few grams.
