First round off the sharp edge on the carbon pieces and then seal all of the pieces.

Hi all,

Just would like to share!
Does any one here found that the servo saver come from car kit (TB E3) is too weak? It cannot keep the car runnning properly straight after some minor collision (A gap was formed in the 2 plastic parts in the saver). I have now changed to KAWADA servo saver and problem was solved.

There is a bit of slop in the servo saver but I haven't had much trouble with losing the steering after a collision yet.

Does anybody know why Tamiya didn't show up at the Snowbird meet in Florida??? Not 1 EVO3 attended or raced. Only 1 guy raced a Tamiya and it was a 414m. Rumours circled around about the diff problems. Sure can't be helping the marketing for the EVO3 !!

Heheh I'll be there for sure! Glad to be able to meet the people behind the nicks. I should be at the track on Friday night to put in some last minute practice laps with my Evo 3. I haven't been practicing much so It will be interesting. The track is very technical so it will be more a case of driving skill and sheer luck rather than batteries or fast motors. I'm counting on luck

The reason why Tamiya was not at the snowbirds is not diff problems. There is a big 4 hour enduro coming up next weekend at Tamiya America and Dave Jun was out testing for that.

Hi Guys,

We have a few spare one-bevel gears in stock and they are available in the EVOIII drivetrain section.

To add to Fangio's reason for Tamiya not showing up was that they were under the impression that their event spots were taken earlier because of how quickly registration filled up. However, they did have spots open for them but it was a little too late for preparation work to be done.

Also, about the one-way gearing problems, ever since I've used blue loctite on the four screws holding it in place, I haven't roached a gear yet. But it is good to know that Tamiya America ordered a large number of them and they are now available. I'll be picking up a few spares just for comfort but if you don't crash, then you don't break hehe

Default race tested at last!!!

Salutations earthlings!
the 2nd race of the singapore CCK touring series just concluded this sunday 090203.and the grand winner.....Nicholas <10 yr old kid> won using a bone stock tbevo3 against a field of 414s, yokes, tc3s and a single sigma. another evo3 also qualified for a-mains.<thats 20% of A-main cars already....>and finished quite respectably.
this car rips!<although the drivers are also excellent!kudos!>
i drove the car myself and the car is absolutely blameless....i blame my own skill and nerves.the car was smooth and fast.in the straights, the fast drivers had difficulty keeping up!
wow!after all the previous uncertainty, i must say, i have absolutely no regrets now having purchased this. i do hope tamiya makes an alternative upperdeck that allows spur gear changes with the removal of the 3 rear screws only.... and of course, the front gear brace.
