Just bought 3 xenon gears so could be good. Are the xenon gears weaker not having the lip?
I thought they were stronger, thats why I bought them.

hey turbo joe wanna sell some of those one way gears??? also i am confused like Crow. with shimming.. i have the bevel gear shimmed (so it pushes further into the gear box and one way) and i have one thin shim on oneway so it pushes towards the bevel, BUT i only have one, and thats all that fits, is this right?

As I recall, I think I have a thick and a thin Tamiya one on the one-way and none on the bevel gear. You can't really move the bevel gear in too much or it will bind bad.

The LW shaft or the later TB-02R shaft is a little longer and they hold the bevel a little "steadier". It's kinda hard to explain, but the shaft is a BIG part of the system, since there's only one bearing on each end...other shaft cars have two in each gearbox.

I wouldn't even put any shims on the bevel. The only way you can really know if it needed them there is to partially assemble the car (both gearboxes, upper deck, spur assembly, motor mount) and check to see if it's binding...add shims until it binds, then remove one. Mine's perfect w/o shims on the bevel gear.

I think I have a couple of one-way gears left...you can't get them locally? I usually get mine from Speedtechrc.com or at SoCal. If you're in a bind, I'm sure I can send you some, but you should be able to get them...PM me if you need some...

You might want to get another gearbox. They get smashed around and it messes with the clearances.

Supposedly...the TC3 gear will fit...never tried it, but it looks really close.

r u sure? i wouldnt want to waste 10 bucks... Also the Xenon gears do help, I noticed that the gear that the car came with was a Xenon gear (when I bought it) and it lasted the the longest out of all my gears (gone through 4 ) and it wasnt even shimmed.!

They're only 7-8 bucks...at least around here. Mine was pretty loose and I had to re-shim it whenI got a new one. I originally replaced it because the screws were stripped, then I noticed how much it changed the gear setup.

Like I said...I heard the Xenon was better, but I never tried it.

Good to hear the xenon gears are stronger.
I really wanted the tech 3 piece shaft as there was one for sale but its sold.
I hope having the xenon gears, the lightweight shaft and shimming will help. I may buy the penguin backing plate is, if I stil strip a xenon gear, Ill buy the penguin plate or see if anyone is selling the jurgen oneway, does Jurgen still make them?

You'll strip if you hit too much but it should prevent it. Im hoping my stuff will cure the stripping 99.9%.

crow it wont be 99.9 Percent... it will strip if u hit hard once probaly.. I just want to not strip from slight crashes... I think the alloy gear might be the best solution

Has anyone found that when putting using the battery holder and posts on the evo 3 causes the bottom chassis to be tweaked ?

I think the battery posts need to be filed down so that batterys can fit better or might have to go to tape.

I already use tape, Its actually not that annoying.. frankly its faster than using pins (my opinion)

I was actually able to fit three .1mm 10mm shims in the onegear... Four was a little two much! I hope this works, about to go to the LHS to buy some one way gears.
