Also, on the subject of gearing, I will be running my evo in the stock silver can class, what gearing would you guys suggest? another gear in our club is using the 72 tooth spur with 46 tooth pinion, 64 pitch.

Can anyone please help

thanks


Thanks
TB02 knuckles should work as well as std 415, TAO4 etc...

72/46 will work well on a long track but will run hot as if you have a technical infield.
You may want to have a selection of pinions 44-47T

The evo3 is a fast car in silver can motor grades.

Speedtech RC has had them...here is a link.

The front knuckle (upright) is the same for 414, 415 (non-MS), TB-02 and maybe (probably) even the earlier EVOs...they fit a LOT of different Tamiyas.

The metal gear in the front will make lots of noise however shimming the back gearbox can help with that "chick" The metal gear in the front proably wont help things though and im wondering where on earth did you get that??? Make sure theres not flat spots on any of the 4 gears ( 2 bevels and 2 ring gears) and then you should be fine. The option shaft is worth the money as well when you have a chance to find it.

Ok - This may sound like a dumb question but how is the best way to shim the gearbox ? I just started racing the stock class at my local track but my car is a little off the pace. All the fast guys say I need to free up the drive train. I'm using all the drivetrain out of a TB 02 with the lightweight drive shaft. BTW I'm running a diff front and rear. This car is still competitive against the Pro 4's and TC4's I just need a little more speed !!!

If the gearbox is clicking it is already stuffed.replace the gearset.

The metal gear is a tbevo4 alloy oneway gear, it works well, I havent broken my fr gearbox since fitting this part.

Since the Evo III and IV share the same one-way I would think the spool for the Evo IV (49359) would work. The package does not say Evo III though ...........any thoughts?

It will work...and I think it would be "legal"...pretty sure the EVO-IV oneway and diffs are listed as EVO-III parts.

There are 2 screws in my top deck that have been rounded off, with one i sanded into it to try and be able to take it out with a flat head driver but that never worked and I cannot take the top deck off and if i sand the 2 screws down and slide the top deck off, I have deck mounts in red aluminium that are uselessm, any way to get the screws out?
