The car has felt strange on carpet way too planted. Martin should be finishing up with Worlds in a few weeks here and you should have some more feedback there also.

Hi Dan
How did is go yesterday? Any luck on the set up that might or will works for the chillwack?

Hi,

Bearing in mind that I don't yet have an Evo IV or an instruction manual, can someone please post a list of parts needed to build a diff to replace the front one-way. I know that its the same as the rear diff, but I don't know what parts make up the rear diff

Thanks.

Default EVO IV

Sad to say that im having to sell my unbuilt kit so if anyone in the UK is interested please pm me , im asking 200 plus 10 P&P which is a huge saving of 190 compared to what i have seen them going for in one UK model shop.

Bloody girlfriend and new house is costing me far too much money lol.

I know this isnt the TB EvoIII thread but can anyone in here tell me what size bearings the EVOIII uses for the hubs and in gear boxes for the outdrives? Like are the hubs 5x10x4 and the outdrive bearings 10x15x4? Thanks for any help.

Hey guys i was just wonder that when you speak of your wheels having a free spin of like 10 or so secs, i was wondering what is the method to do it...do you spin it with your hand or do you run it with your motor or what?

thanks

Ran my evo 4 for the first time last night on carpet and i have to say i really dont like it! Although the drive train is very free the car seems to tweek very easily and also i am quite dissapointed with the new LW suspension setup, i have been able to get neither my 415 or my evo 4 close to how my 415 and evo 3 used to run on the old suspension setup.

Think i might just flog all my tamiya stuff and buy a Pro 4 or a new Xray after the worlds. Rick

Hey Rick

i was gonna get an evoIV... do you race on asphalt at all? any impressions on the evoIV on asphalt? there's no such thing as carpet racing in southern california..its all asphalt. ive been pretty disappointed with my 415 w/LW... wondering if the evoIV will be the same. if your price is right, i can take it off your hands

Dont think i am going to sell it, not sure yet. Might give it a few more runs and see if things improve. Felt strange to drive and if you rubbed the boards a little bit the thing got a massive set in the chassis.

A friend of mine tried his one outside and went straight back to his 415 so that does not inspire much confidense.

aCK! ok. i havent given up on 415 yet.. like you. gonna have to test some more. im leaning towards going back to the old suspension. or maybe belt isnt just for me. thats why i was leaning towards the evoIV.

415ms edition gets my vote, shud be out for christmas as well. But that is only as long as you can fit the old suspension on it as well as the new stuff. Rick
