racenut, concerning tamiya reps. I see this guys on a weekly basis at the TA track, and they are aware of the problem. They are cool guys and are very helpful, you probably just talk to one who did not have his lunch yet. Even David Jun has had experience the front bevel gear stripping and Fred M. has acknowledge the issue and it is something they will address.

Weapon I think that is the kit I have also I grabbed some refills off the shelf and didn't realise until I got back that they were the 10MM shims. Sorry no #'s now

The spool I made using(hope it doesn't delete swear words) Losi
diff pads they have the sandpaper insert you use on the front diff plates. CA it onto the ring then CA the ring to the outdrive and voila' spool I didn't CA the ring to the outdrive and it tried to spin the rings on the outdrive so I glued them down.

I do have a friend making them soon and they will available if there is interest out there.Probably alum withe the ability to use the hardened outdrive from the 1-way for durabilityhopefully coming soon.

Tom hurry up ad get settled and get you butt up here to race

A greaseless product I use White Lightning brand normally used for bicycle chains. It lubricates but does not attract dirt or in the case of the EVO cause stiction in the gears slowing or binding up the car. With no pinion my car rolls forever right now I have about 5 hours or so trying different lubes in the bearings and gears but it is freeeeeee now.

Hi fellow Evo 3 owners!

Just put my Evo 3 together during the New Year holidays. Have'nt had a chance for shake down runs yet.

I found a good way to prevent dirt from entering the main shaft bearings. Know of reinforcement rings for hole punched paper??? Its got an internal dia. of 6mm, exactly that of the shaft. just stick it at the bearing mounts. CHEAP and most importantly works! Esp for ppl runnning on carpeted surfaces. (a shame that a car of this caliber does not come with Tamiya rubber sealed bearings)

Peace! Rev on!

Default EVO 3

Hi Ray,

How much did you pay for the EVO3?
And did you get it from Winnie?

Deciding between an 04R and EVO 3...

Thanx

Thumbs down Sorry to say.

But if what your saying is true izzy,then the guy I talked to is a lyer,Plain and simple.He said that David never experienced this problem and he had no knowledge of the problem.So I know he is a liar,not a absent minded track official.He made me out to look stupid in front of others because he could/would notacknowlege the problem with the one way.Oh Well..........................

What are the part numbers for the tuning spring sets for the Evo 3's shocks? I checked Tamiya's site and they have a few different sets, but I am lost as to which is the one to get.

Is there a spring chart anywhere for the car?

Thanks!

futureal, look to get the hard onroad spring set, and if you feel like it, get two of them These are the springs that look darker than the regular springs (the regular ones being all neon colored). The chart for both springs and rollbars is as follows:

Red=Soft
Yellow=Medium Soft
Blue=Medium Hard
White=Hard

They also sell matched spring sets with four identical springs if you're into that.

About the front gears in the Tevo3, they've order a buku load of them and should be in at any moment. Also, there may be something in the works to remedy the gear situation.
