better corner speed, lower CG, new tamiya steering system, i think the parts are easier to get, will be supported by tamiya for longer, and simply newer and solved some of the problems the IV had ( i dunno what they are, just from what ive heard).

cheers

hi everyone
well I bought An EVO 5

Are there any good build tips i should Know(besides spend a long time shimming it right)

also a friend has been experimenting with the bevel gears, he reckons that if you dont grease the gears it will lessen wear. Because less dust and little rocks/sand wont get stuck on them.( i race on a very dusty track). so grease vs non grease?

Any help is appreciated

Thanks for answering me, rc touring racer.

Hopefully i already got the answer. I bought some pinions that range from 31 th to 41 teeth.
Since I got the 2 spurs (90 and 96 teeth) i think i will have enough gearings possibilities to use my 17 turns Corally motors at its best potential.

Thanks in advance!

Hy !

Chamber: 1,5 all around,
Caster: 4
Toe in rear between 2 (Stock Motors till 17T) 2,5-3 for Modified.
Ride height: 5 front, 5,5 rear ground clearance
Droop: front 6mm rear 5mm (meassured from the bottom of the lower deck to the under surface of the suspension arm.

Sway Bars: You have to try. Test the soft ones.

Dampers: White spring front, blue spring rear, 50 or 40oil, 3 hole, no bushing or o ring). If there is low grip then use the blue spring front and the yellow spring rear.

The Damper, and upper arm positions all stock. maybee you can try to use the inner hole from the bulkhead upperarmmount.

I hope it works well, because it is my setup for my Evo5 on Carpet Tracks.
I also run harder swaybars sometimes. (depends on the griplevel)

This response is prolly a bit late and you have most likely already built the car .. but .... on the tamiya website in the articles section there is a long article on a "preoffesional build" of the evo 5 by one of the TRF drivers. Its pretty good, sorry no link.

curious to know what's your quickest/easiest way to change the spur on eIV

do you take off the whole rear gearbox assembly + motor mount?
