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
hey lee, hows things?
i'm racing in New Zealand, the open stock class rules are simple
your limited to 1500 battery pack, minium weight of 1.5kg, and any stock motor!
pretty sweet rules huh, so do ya think the type-s motor would be good for this? or is the type-rr the one to get?
i want a toe gauge because i plan on put a "d"-"a" sus block set up at the front but need to adjust the toe after that back to 0 degrees.
can ya give me some idea on how to gear a stock motor? even a good roll out value for me to start with(on small track).
it sucks you guys are having such a hard time getting your evos, mine came in a month early! i didn't have the money ready even.
maybe you should try source one from new zealand or australia.
anyway this is going to be my first race(ever!) i'm racing nothing but x-rays, scary i hope my evo makes me proud

hey guys

i found a temporay fix for the one way gear problem. The other night on the track, I lost a screw out of the bottom of the front gear case which made the gear case go loose, causing the one way to slip, etc.. (lucky for me I didn't strip the gears) the plastic casing had stripped, looking in my tool box I used a long counter sunk screw with a spare alluminium collar to keep it out a bit, worked like a charm, no more porblems for the moment

and as for results, beat all the field except for a TC3, which wasn't beating me in straight line, but in cornering, plus he has 3000mah batteries vs my 1500 so a very succesfull night for the evo

GTMilenko:
any stock motor?gr8 just like one of the race series here ..experienced guys are limited to 27T while novice can use 23T.BUT those darn green machines and monster stockers are just as fast as 23T's capable of more than 27k RPM.
anyway if ur serious on racing do get the type RR.since it is open-endbell and u can cut the coms etc.type T is closed endbell and it's a headache after a while.
it is made a little faster as well.
so here's the serious list: Yokomo RST/RSR/RSL(Lay-down) , Kawada type L , Team atlas(dunno the model name) and HPI super RS , and the Tamiya type RR.
anyone of these would be great stock 23T's,rebuildable as well.just get the cheapest one here.if ur stuck to 1500's...get the RST(high torque) and gear low.tight track anyway huh?i dont have an Evo yet but i was on like 6.6(for my ex-Pro3) for a tight track here.lasted 8-10 minutes on a 2400.so 5 mins should be achievable.
dont worry about racing for the 1st time!take it easy and have fun.Just practice hard and learn to be consistent.on ur 1st few laps were ur punch is high..dont be too hasty.that's were the most accidents happen.
Oh yeah,my Evo is bound for shipping on MONDAY.tell u guys what i think of it in a week!
hi hawker:
699 for an Evo3?i bought mine for 540(ausd) including 2 one way gears and a bag of arms and shipping!but no offence to ur workplace..im very budget concious.

to get the 6.6 overall ratio that you are shooting for, the closest you are going to get with out switching to antoher brand of spur gear is 35/90.

this will give you a final drive ratio of 6.685.

i think where you were getting messed up was with the internal ratio of the EVO. just FYI it's 2.6.

sorry dude, i have a smoking med to high grip carpet setup for you...but not asphalt..

you might post, asking for the assistance of TRF driver Dan Garber, i know that he has been running his EVO III out side for a couple weeks now, and might be able to help you.

or you can probably PM him, his handle is "difuser".
