Not really. The plastic thing only serves as a post for the upper deck right. So I took it off still shaft is pretty fine.

I just bought a used Evolution. Very nice car from what I see.

What do you guys do about the outdrives coming out of the diffs since they have so much slop in them. My TB01 has it and the Evolution is exactly the same. My TB01 is pretty quick but I hope that the Evolution is even faster. The TB01 don't seem to accelerate as fast as the 04's or TC3's do. My other touring cars also seem to accelerate faster to. I even have the lightweight diffs and shaft.

The EVO does have more adjustments and is lighter than my TB01 which still has the plastic tub but weighs 3 lbs 5oz. Thought that was pretty good with rubber tires on.

Put an O-ring into the outdriver before you put the drive shaft in. This will prevent it from falling out.

Other things you can do, put AE black grease onto the spline of the outdriver....or use tamiya threadlock. This should hold the outdriver in if ou lose the driveshaft in a crash!

I did put the o rings in the outdrives. I will thread lock them as well and see if this helps at all. That is the only thing that I don't care for on the car. The rest is very tight with very little slop and the little slop I do have is needed to keep the car tracking straight.

I heard that the new F1 diff might work on the EVO2 and it don't have outdrives that pull out like the EV02 has. If that is the case I will buy some and put in my car. My local hobby shop owner has the new Tamiya 4wd F1. I will look at his this weekend and see if they will fit.

The F1 diffs will not work on the TB because the bevel gear is signifcantly smaller. If you use the TB gear with the F1 outdrivers then you cannot find diff plates the right size!! (unless you machine them yourself! In that case you will run into problems with flexing of the plates because they are not supported in the load area!

Unless you step on it or hit by a RC plane..I think you're pretty safe with this one

DTM thanks for the info. I guess that answers my question. I will just use some blue threadlock and the o rings in the cups and see how it runs. I guess unless the outdrives are slipping because the slpines are worn I will not have any problems.

Do you guys play around with the anti squat in the rear at all and has anyone played around with the shims in the front to change the caster.

Never tried that yet since I dont see its importance at the moment. Anti-squat on the rear...1 shim on each side right? How is it?

I've asked the same question about TB hubs being interchangable and one cat said it would work. I won't know how well they work until my long arms arrive.

Aluma I have a Schumacher EVO2 buggy with the graphite chassis and toplate. It has titanium tie rods and the Associated axles in the front. I have not used the car since I got it from a Schumacher team driver. All I did was clean it and put alot of stainless steel screws on it. I have a good amount of tires and spare parts for it as well. It really only needs a body and wing for it. The ones with it just are not painted cool for my taste. Car looks better than new with the stainless srews on it. It has 30 bucks worth of those things. I just don't race off road any so if you are interested I would trade it to you if you wanted to get ride of your EVO2 Tamiya car.

Car is mint and I also have a bunch of new rear rims. It comes with alot of stuff so you won't be disappointed with this car. Another reason I don't run it is tha it will get dirty and I'm a neat freak so I just rather not race this car.
