I have no problems whatsoever with the rear gears too.

All except for the 1 time when the bevel's 1280 bearing C-clip came loose and it fell into the teeth... got mashed into 5 pieces. The teeth still worked and I never discovered it until the next teardown, but the gears got a beating.

honestly, the square gearboxs dont weight much more then the stock boxs!! ill weight them up when i get some time.

The square rear uprights are lighter then the stock uprights!! how? i have no idea!!

i think im gonna install front bearing, im guessing that it will not only reduce wobble but also mean less weight on the front gearbox which will be good!!

But... ill have to ditch my lovely red support

Hey guys, just got my EVO III. I was wondering is the drive shaft suppose to be a tight fit to the gears? Does it move freely forward and back when install or its tight?

There should be a little play. It also depends on which shaft you have in your car. The original shaft is about 2mm shorter than the new light weight shaft and has more play, whereas the new improved shaft should give you minimum play.

never had a tech racing shaft in the car but looked at it and it´s so heavy. Don´t want it in my car. So I would go for the lightweight shaft. I have one but yet have to try. Will go in my new second EVO3.
The Penguin plate won´t work with the Jürgen oneway but also there is no need for it as this oneway is using a very big backingplate nearly as large as the onewaygear.

Hi Evo_Uk, I believe the stars and planets were perfectly alligned during that particular rebuild because it was pretty sweet. It's been over a year since I've had a drivetrain that free and to be honest, I paid for it because the gear mesh was not tight enough and made "coffee grinder" noises when I got on throttle with a 19T on high traction asphault. Nowadays, I just make sure it doesn't bind anywhere and remove shims until I get the "grinder" then I replace the shim I took out Time is better spent on track than working on the extra wheel spin.

good idea?

Just goes to show that just because they are nice and shiney it dont mean they are any better than the standard items by Tamiya.

well i dunno, they surely are presise. they hold the bearings ALOT better indeed to reduce any wobble. but they hold it so presise that it gets rid of any shimming u might want to do.

so if i used the stock gearboxs id have to find a way of holding the bearings in better then shim it.

ill have to experiment i guess
