The shims go behind the bearing. To tighten up the mesh, use shims behind the bearing on the same side as the gear.

As for exactly how many or how thick...it depends on the gearbox and the bearings. One car I have takes more shims than the other to get about the same lash.

I run the standard Tamiya gears.
No problem-yeah-I meant that you cannot turn the diff gear-at all, but the wheels still rotate very free.

i made myself some shims by reaming out a hole in some polycarbonate scrap left from a body shell to a diameter so that it slipped on tight over the end of the oneway and then trimed it down with sissors.I found the waste poly. thats edged around the actual shell was thicker than the poly. at the wheel centres thus giving you 2 thickness. Then just placed 1 off them to the gear side of the 1 way which took up all the play. This has worked wonders

a spool has good braking ablity and a diff is good when you first dirve the car.. i think a one way is faster going on what others have said although i havent tried a spool does anyone know where to get an evo 3 one?? do speedtech sell them?

Man did I have a pleasant suprise last night at practice. A little background. I had some of the very first evoIII's to hit the USA. I was very impressed with the build quality and materials untill I hit the track. Handled like a dream, but neither my buddy nor I could get any rip off the corners whatsoever.

SO back to today-I buy a used evoIIISL and TB02 package-interchangeble-only for a TCS race-but I decide I am gonna run this on foam tires for a month for fun and then switch it over to rubber tires.

I dont know where it came from-but this cars got plenty of rip!!! I dont know what was wrong two years ago or so-but this is nothing like the original car I had. I dont know what was wrong with my buddies car and mine-but we tried everythng (diff motors, diff esc, rollouts, no rear toe-in-you name it-even putting the motor and battery in my TC3-which just flew!!).
The ony diff between then and now is a front one-way then and a front diff today. Weird as a one-way should have more pull off corners or from a dead-stop.

Anyways-babbling like I always do-but this is crazy-but a pleasant suprise.

LOL... I've never run my evo3 without the front diff... and I always wondered why everyone said the evo3 sucked when mine was ripping up the track with ZERO problems... hahahaha.

how hard did you set the diff in comparison to the rear?? How much softer/harder did you put it??

Well-that might have been part of the problem back then. Maybe my rear diff wasnt tight enough.

Now? my front diff screw is bottomed out (full tight) and my rear id backed off maybe 1/16 of a turn from locked.

That might be the difference for sure!!
