I used to tweak the gears a little just about every time I ran the car...but as I got better at the shimming deal and got a new LW shaft (they get torn up on the ends)...I haven't messed up a gear in a couple months.

That and they only take a few minutes to change...plus they're cheap.

I like mine so much that I actually have three of them now...red surikarn (outside car), blue Surikarn (inside car) and a TB-02/EVOIII (TCS GT-3 car). The car is tough as nails.

It's doing beautifully.

Hey Jeff...where did you get that Jurgen one-way? I was telling Dotman about it...but I haven't a clue where they come from.

When are you coming back to SoCal?

Got it from Jürgen directly. If Oliver is interested Jürgen's email address is HornMoisburg@aol.com.

I will be back in April. I have been doing mostly nitro lately so haven't been to SoCal as much.

Evo4 has more steering for me but Evo3 is easier to work on and is plenty fast.

Have you had any problems with the bevel gear on the evo III and if so how did you fix it.

yes. the only sure fix i know if is to not crash. the light weight shaft which is 2mm longer helps a lot otherwise.

easiest thing to do is to change it out for a front diff.

A fix I have found that works is using the Evo IV Aluminum ring gear for the one way. Everyone says that it will not work but it is the same amount of teeth as the Evo III ring gear and works great. Just make sure you shim the one way toward the bevel or you will strip the bevel. Although I only striped the bevel when running a 19t (but I shimed the one way wrong) but with a stock motor I have had no issues even with some heavy crashes.

the LW shaft in combonation with the aluminum gear is the fix.

g'day
does anyone here use their evo3 for 540 stock racing (using a mabuchi silver can)? if so what gearing would you reccomend as a starting point? in 64dp. i have set up for 40mm rollout but i think it is lacking top end just wondering if there is a 'sweet' spot in these motors...
