Never heard before Tamiya have ceramic balls. But with the tons of parts Tamiya have its quite difficult sometimes finding the right thing youre looking for. Do you have a # please?

Im using the Tamiya Carbide balls but my diffs dont run much better than with the Tamiya lightweight (kit?) balls.

Are there any harder diffrings for the EVO3?


EVO UK
Just did a search at R10
the squat balls youre using are # S077 right? This should be 10 balls in a package.
are these balls white or black colour as this depends on the type of ceramic used?

Tony... I'm sure Hebiki won't mind... He asked me at least 3 times to drive his new car but I refused.... Reason is that I might like it so much and ditch my evo on the spot... right now, the evo still reigns in my stable (at least until when my 415 arrives... ) BTW, I confirmed the lightweight shaft and it is much much longer... I'll be running it this sunday with the penguin plate...

tony.. i picked up the shafts at socal... but i think they might be all out? i bought 3. one for me, eeyan and dyaz21. but since dyaz21 is selling his surikarn, you might be able to purchase the shaft from him. i already told your bro in law about dyaz selling the surikarn. you two should talk.

i will pick up another shaft for my TB-02. but thats a different story

Ok, I think that I understand the springs on Tamiya cars...
From stiffest to softest: White, Blue, Yellow, Red...

Sway bars go: Blue, Yellow, Red

Then I am pretty sure that there are three sets of springs, Soft, Medium, and Hard sets. These springs are in the Soft catagory?

Still trying to figure out this Tamiya thing. LOL

Hey Bubbles, from stiffest to softest: Purple, Gray, White, Blue, Yellow, and Red (I'm not 100% sure if purple IS stiffer than gray as I have not looked at it in a long time) As for sway bars, it's the same with the springs.

What spring sets are you talking about? They do offer "matched" spring sets with 4 same colored springs if that's what you're thinking about.

Your right....these are the "on-road hard" springs that are of medium lenght.
Also the TRF short springs, are as they say "short". They are harder then the same colour in the on-road set, as they are shorter....
The TRF short springs are only available in Red, Yellow, Blue and White......

Thumbs up How long is your shaft?

Okay, so the subject didn't sound right... hehe

But for those of you interested to see the length difference between the new lightweight shaft and the regular one, here it is! Up close and personal... I know, I know... I've got too much time in my hands... but hopefully this can help you guys decide on whether you need this part. I am just speculating right now, but I do think this will help reduce stripping the one way gear. We'll be doing some race testing this coming Sunday and hopefully my gear stripping will be reduced to "none"... can't wait!
