another shot..

The plastic covers only one side, the side where the spur and pinion gears tend to pull debris inside...

I saw no need to cover the entire area since pebbles are only thrown/spun away by the spinning spur gear...

Perhaps, but your motor will turn into a barbecue in a few seconds. Not worth it, just crazy in fact!

It's hard to say between the TA04 and the TB Evo II because there are soo many versions of the TA04. I think that the EVO II would be about the same as a TA04R. A mate and Me bought each of those with me getting the Evo II, and there really is nothing to split us on the timesheets so I would suggest the top 4 to go along like this:

1= TA04R
1= TB Evolution II
3= TB-02
4= TL-01

The TA04S would be inbetween 3 and 1 and anything above the TA04R would obviously succeed the lead in that system.

One final thing to remember is that you constantly have to maintain the TA04's belts otherwise the create a lot of friction and binding with debris, whereas shaft driven cars are a lot more lenient in that regard. The belt system is more efficient in power as long as the belts are okay and aren't loose or too tight.

I hope that that is of some help to you!

The EVO II is shaft driven and most of the chassis is based on the Tamiya Nitro Car, the TG10. Therefore it should be able to withstand anything you put into it. The ball diffs are made entirely out of metal except for the ring gear. I think that the EVO II is a great car, especially if you are going to drive it around where there are a lot of leaves and debris to stuff up your belts. Just keep an eye on crap getting in the teeth of the spur or pinion. It is quite easy to wreck them if they get a little stone or anything like that in them.

I can't say I know what kroma is. Is that the Keilor track???

I actually race down at Boronia. Just started in fact. I race in the F1 class primarily and it's absoultely great. Seeing about 10 F201 cars flying around the track is just great. If my car dies on the track, i don't mind so much cause it's exciting to watch!! But I also race my EVO II in 540 Pro down there. I hate the fact that we are using bloody silver can motors. It's really frustrating but ahh well. Such is life!!
