I'm pretty sure that I didn't strip the outdrive. I just put down the car and run it for the first time last night. as to the slop.... what really counts as slop?? I never get that.

so the sound is normal then?...... as long as it's not a big deal, i'm fine with it. The car sure runs strong. alittle more balanced then EvoI.

IceBerG71: Sorry, no idea. You might wanna try emailing them or try an online retailer... When I broke mine I broke my carbon chassis too, so at the point I, uh, got my 04

Oh another alternative is this:

I emailed them once, they are very friendly. Problem is, yours truly doesn't have a credit card.

Thanks for that, I've done pretty much that. Bent some bars at right angles and soldered corally's to them.

Anyone here having problems with there evo's tracking straight? Mine seems to pull left or right after turning.

yup, its your outdrives... i just followed my TL01's solution...put an o-ring inside to keep it snug. I noticed that same problem when i first built mine....the cups kept falling out even though it was all put together....once i put the o rings in, no problems.


I do recommend y'all keep an eye on your front hub step screws! they loosen sometimes and if you hit something break the plastic hub. Its happend in my TL01 and my EVO2. (I put thread lock or glue inthere before i screw them in)

My car handles great ! it's dialed in baby! wooohooo!!!

try a little toe in in the front....wow what a difference! especially with the blue front and yellow rear springs.

Alvin:

Thanx for the info...i spend quite a lot in upgrading....still feel it can go further that what i have done..maybe change a car when my skills is more than what the car takes.

The penguim website, i been before and email them too but they say must buy together with their chassis.....that will add up to a huge amount, no tworth it lai....might as well spend $$$ on a TB EVO2 ???

Anyone got any ideas for removing the slop from the evo II's steering? I've just bought the tG10 aluminium racing steering and after a bit of tinkering got it to fit, I'm sure it made no difference to the slop though, and think the geometry may now be incorrect.

switch the turnbuckles, and shim all screws! thats the only way to get rid of tamiya slop.

:: guys i can't the right thread for my question and it seems that this is the closest one, now my question is, can i use TA04's allum steering set in place of TG-10's allum one? ( i can't find one here! ) set on my Tb-01 chassis kit, and TG-10's steering set is supposed to be the hop-up for my chassis, and i can't seem to find one here in the Phil. have anybody tried it? thanks in advance :: -

I put the TG10 Aluminium steering on my evo II, took quite a bit of messing around with spacers to get it to fit, it's not really designed to go on.
