Hey, how are you guys finding the bevel gears for the one-way?? In 3 runs, I have broken 2 of them, mainly from the screw coming out of the prop joints and the bevel gear coming off and getting jammed in the gearbox. How is everyone else finding them?? Does anyone know if there is going to be a reinforced material for the bevel gear.

The building instruction did say that you have to use CA to glue the screw in the drive shaft. I just used thread lock and never had a problem. My buddy did not and his screw did came loose.

Hmmmmmm, well I didn't use it then but I have now. I really need to get some more of those gears as spares. The mounting for the pin has become completely mangled now which is a bit of a bummer. So basically I am only gonna run the next few races with a piece partially mangled, but I have used a dab of superglue between the shaft and bevel gear, so hopefully all should be good, but I've also heard of the entire gears getting MANGLED so that there are no teeth of the crown of the bevel gear.

pro 4 vs Evo 4...

Yep, im interested to know. had a choice a month ago and i chose the evo 4. many racers in our place use the pro 4 and they say its a really good car. i tried running it for a couple of laps but was not able to really test it. it would be great if somebody could share there experience.

I had a Pro4 with all the BMI conversion on it. Nice car but when I needed to order parts they were always on backorder. Might of changed now but my EVO IV works better than the Pro4 did any ways. Another nice thing is my shop is big into Tamiya so getting parts is easy and they seem to most of the part available when my shop orders them.

The Pro4 don't have anymore features than the EVO does. They are actually very similiar in design but you get the best shocks out on the Tamiya car.

I never noticed the CA reference either and chewed one bevel gear. On the next one I reinfoced it by filling the two cavities on the sides of the pin with CA and letting it dry. Then I used Loctite to hold the screw in and I have not had any problems since. I run mod and really powerful Redline motors so I figure that should be a pretty good stress test.

I do pay very close attention to the shimming of my diffs, oneway, and spool and they are all different. I always make sure the gears are shimed perfect with very little backlash.

hey dude.. you seriously just need to buy a car already all the cars you've asked about are great.. it all comes down to preference. eventually, once you've purchased a car..you'll have your own preference. cant go wrong and you need to enjoy the hobby
