go to www.speedtechrc.com, go to Spare Parts and Hop Ups, go to Tamiya Evo IV, go to Hop Ups

It'll be there

It says he's out of stock, but email Steve. He'll give you the most up to date information

buy alot of bevel gears. if you use a one way, chances are you will chew-up some bevel gears. some tips for the car.... CA the screw that holds the bevel gears so that it will not come loose.

buy a lightened propeller shaft and aluminum input shafts to go with your alum drive cups. rainbow has them and they are not expensive.

i tore up a bevel gear today (finally) after three competitive races (two at socal, has a concrete retaining wall and 2x4 boards and a carpet race)

car is hold up great. buy the necessary hop ups and the car should be bullet proof for stock and even 19T. not sure about mod. i dont run that too chicken.

cooliomojo-cebu im close to that "aggressive" set up you wanted. -1.5 camber front, -0.5 camber rear is waaaay too aggressive. dont try it at home!

ill post on the TAOB thread once i finalize it at another track

Chris... good practice today (where were you? jas kidding!)!!! Although I did felt bad about your 2nd burnt KO ESC. Make it a 3rd and you'll be in the record books.

Ran the Evo4 today at Tamiya and it was hooked up in cold weather with take off 27s. I did feel a bit of torque steer... but it wasn't consistent and sometimes just went away. The car was pretty much stable specially in the infield, but the 415(Speedtech Steve's) I was running with was a tad bit faster on the straights.

Mr. Mark Dawson of Losi fame was gonna run his JRXS with us, but he broke his car a heat before the mains from running mod. See what Chris just said? Run mabuchi and there's like a .0001 chance you'll DNF... run mod, and the possibilities of breaking goes up to about 99%

The tamiya cup should run you about $7 USD

Agree totally Vic. Bought Square bits first for the outdoor mod car and then the Tam bits for teh indoor one when they eventually came out. Tam bits are as good.

I noticed that Hebiki didn't have the support posts for the center of chassis, to join the plastic top and bottom decks on. I believe that they come with the clear tamiya plastic stuff too. Can anybody confirm that??

also, what are the ball ends used there?? I mean the grey cups that sit on the balls.

Also, what turnbuckles are used there too. I really wanna get some more of this blue on my car!!
