Cool,

Where did you obtain the front differential? Also do you know where I can purchase a replacement driveshaft for the car?

I love the car, it sets up and drives well but I just don't know about these one way gears stripping.

I dont like one ways... at my track fulltime 4wd is a necessity. I tried a the oneway on my evo2 and even then i pieced together a diff for it. I didnt even bother running my evo3 until i got the front diff. good thing too, this guy from houston came down to our track with an evo3 with the front oneway, and he was all over the place.
I get my stuff from anywhere they got it in stock... speedtechrc.com has some parts, others from shopping.rcmodel.com.hk, and from rainbow ten in japan aswell...

check speedtech first...its cheaper and faster. they should have the driveshaft too. just send them an email if you'd like.

Thanks,

I really like the one way in the car. By no means was my car "all over the place." I just don't want to break those gears and replace them after every few runs.

I will give Speedtech a call when they open later today to see if he has these parts available.

Thanks

Yes, what you are saying is that it would be great if someone
could go an condense all the good bits into a good FAQ... yup
that would be real handy if one is time poor. But that also implies
there's someone who's willing to go do all the work?

If you wish to volunteer...


btw same thread also answers your Q re: front diff.

Tamiya doesn't sell a diff pack (yet?), and the guys on the thread
advise its easiest to buy a (1) TA04 Ball Diff pack, (2) TB Evo III
diff outdrives pack and the (3) F201 diff rings pack; then build
it out of that. Saves chasing each part separately otherwise.

By the way, how do you like your Evo III thus far?
Evo III is simply great!!

But don't just ask me, I'm totally biased towards Tamiyas.
Just about got 'em all...

lol,

I can't believe that it is going to take two days to run two classes! There must be like 200 entries there.

Another question what is the advantage of positive camber? How about negative camber?

oh don't YOU start on this...!!!




As for positive camber VS negative camber...

It depends on who's doing the quoting. Some say +ve is when the wheels lean *in* at the top, but others call that -ve also.

When your car goes around a corner, the chassis rolls towards the outside of the corner. To get the best grip from your tyres, you want them squarely planted perpendicular to the road when the car is cornering.

This is what camber compensates for, otherwise the outside edge of your tyres will get all the work and reduce your grip.

Well, right now I am running -1.5 of camber negative camber looks like this /\ Positive camber will produce a V shape. What about toe? What is th advantage of having toe in?

easy... toe in results in smooth entrance into the turn with a little more steering at the end of the turn.

toe out, gives you immediate turn in and a little understeering at the end of the turn.
