I would only use the 9550 is you want any form of space inyour EVO4....
and as far as I know ...I"think" that Square is working on some Alloy ones now... not for sure

You might get somewhere with a TT-01 cup, but you'd have to drill it, like the yoke one.

None as yet, but we will see what happens and, if the Novak speedo dies on us I will slag them off when I'm in NY in a few weeks time!

yeah the yok one will work but its a hard thing to get to fit. Bugger of a part to replace



I've stripped a spur gear, but was expected after a massive accident.

i will try to fit the yokomo cup today...... i'll tell you my experiences....

another point: i have lots of play in the rear uprights, is that normal? i tried to shimm it out, but i had no chance........ i think the play is between the suspension arms and the uprights. any suggestions?

thank you

Well, not really appropriate for this thread, but I just bought a Robitronic ETC V1 chassis.

If the EVO4 doesn't eat XRays, then the ETC V1 should. It's scored wins at BRCT nationals???

This is the driveshaft cup, they have a 'D' profile, unlike several driveshaft cups. I think a file on a TA-04 or TB-03 one-way diff driveshaft cup might do the job, maybe?

I have seen this ETC V1 here and be sure it wonīt eat Xrays or EVPīs or TC3īs or anything like these. The ETC is based on the ball type suspension from Hong Nor and thatīs the problem. The drivetrain seems to be very good but not the suspension. The TC4 International Pro2 from GM Racing/Hong Nor was the same car beside drivetrain and chassis layout and was the worst car I ever had.

So, you haven't actually driven it?

I know for a fact that it has scored very highly over here in club and national races. I have seen the results.

From the spec, it is a VERY advanced chassis. If the suspension doesn't work, then a) it wouldn't sell, and b) it wouldn't score in races, beating Xrays and Tc3's (doh!)

I wouldn't have bought it if I hadn't already seen the evidence.

Yeah, i agree with tamiyarcracer. I just got an Evo 4, by the look of it, Surikarn is bound to use it at the worlds, to try and get his own version of that too. An Evo 4 Surikarn would be awesome!

Hey, try a Hitec 625MG. They're great servos, and they fit the EVO 4 as it is out of the box.
