hey hawker

I was noticing a little clicking sound on my evo3 when I roll it. what it turns out to be, at least in my case, was that the axle on the rear was sliding in and out slightly. Unless you shim the axle to stop the play you will hear that sound. However, if you shim the axle be careful not to over tighten the wheel nuts, because if you do the wheel will bind.

you said that there was some wear on the ball cup where the wheel is rubbing right...

check to see if your wheel is bent, and is just barely ticking the ball cup as it spins.

it's worth a look anyway.

The noises from the driveshafts should be normal, its due to the slop in them. As long as they sound ok on the track they should be fine.

Peter I noticed that you are a Tamiya driver? Do you know if there is any type of permanet fix for the front one way gear. I have not had any serious problems with the one way gear but would just prefer a definite piece of mind. Thanks

I saw a Tamiya reinforced one way option and appears to have a metal ring around the gear but it was only advertise for TB-01, Evo 1 and 2.
I wonder if there will be one for the evo 3 soon.

help! urgent assistance needed.

I got home from work last night and pulled apart my evo 3 to flush all the bearings out, that worked out no problem, spins like crazy now, however I put the car back together, and now, when you hit the acceleration, and then let go, if you hold the car on a angle, as the one way spins, one of the wheels click depending on what angle. But when you put the car on the ground, no sound at all. There was also some wear on the ball cups where the wheels were rubbing.

I pulled the car apart 3 times trying to figure out where it has come from. It must be from the wheels hitting something at that angle. I also noticed that the wheels/axle has a bit of slop to move in and out, i haven't noticed that before is that normal? thanx guys need your help on this one as I have to race tonight!

Thanx guys
Dood gas just isn't for you than

hey guys got my first race coming up soon so i gotta get my evo sorted! i've decide to race open stock class. i'm pretty much up against nothing but X-Ray Evo 2's, think i'm the only shaft driven!
anyway a few questions if i may,
what sort of tires and inserts would you guys run on a concrete track? tamiya type B?
what type of gearing do you all recomend for this small track with a stock motor? i plan on getting tamiyas super stock type s, which i beleive is 23 turn?
also anyone got a good setup for a small concrete track?
sorry one more thing ,does tamiya make a gauge for checking toe? if so anyone know the part number?
thanx

Hi.damn i wish i were preping for a race instead of waiting for my evo.
OK.are u running japanese stock?because Tamiya type T's are 23T and they cannot be entered in ROAR(american) stock.
and the type T's are the cheapest/lowest range of the tamiya stockers.i believe if u want cheap stockers then the Yokomo Pro stock 2 is even cheaper.
otherwise get the Type RR since it's rebuildable and tuned for more speed.at least 5-10bucks more.
basically u dont need a gauge for checking toe since u just slap on the proper toe-blocks.fine adjustment is not available(i think).
hope this helps.
Lee
