Is the stock shaft of the standard EVO3 the same length as the Surikarn (short)?

Well, I raced my EVOIII for the first time today. I qualified third, in a three main class!!!(A-Main, B-Main, C-Main) The only problems that I had all night was motor and the car pushed slightly. I was passed on the outside going down the straight-away after I passed for the lead. The car COULD turn enough, but I would scrub too much speed, which there was almost none of to begin with, and I would be in deep(er). I got tangled with lap traffic towards the end, but overall, I was very impressed with how the car worked at SoCal.

Default New Shaft

The car now have about 20 runs and 2 full races with the new improved shaft that is 2mm longer. All the gears are still looking as new with no wear whatsoever.

What colour is the new improved shaft?
Is it titanium grey or is there also a blue one?

Hey, V12, I tried out the Jürgen one-way - not problems with the gear now but I find the bearings don't run so free like the Tamiya one is it the same for you?

BTW: Got my Mazda body now look really good!!!

Yes it´s the same for me. Jürgens uses some longlasting bearings which aren´t that free as the usual ones. But that´s not a big problem for me. I like this more than replacing them after a short time as I can´t do this myself.
But it´s a good idea using the Serpent Oneway Lube also. Works for every oneway. Don´t use brakecleaner for degreasing as this could damage the onewaybearings just use the lube.

I thought I'd be the only one using Serpent Oneway Lube

When the bearings are worn, where can they be replaced? Does Jürgen do this?

If you would be the only one using it Serpent wouldn´t make very much money on the lube.
But not too much people racing electric doesn´t know this stuff.

yes, Jürgen will be able replacing the oneway bearings but I haven´t heard any of his have failed since now.

you must grease the little bearing otherwise it will lock up,so will your diff
the little one gets stuk in the diffoutdrive so it will screw/or unscrew your diff by movement
just a drop of ball-diff grease or if you have green slime (trinity)
and its oke.

if you got a black diff replace it in time for a white one they are much better

while your at it check the movement of the diffplates as well
NO movement in those two

building and mantaining a diff takes time!!!!!!
don`t rush it take that time (saves money)

greetings
