Thats not what I said.I have had no problem with my Jurgen oneway at all.I have been quite brutal with the thing.But nothing is bulletproof or foolproof.I was just saying that with the new gear it may be even closer to bullet proof.

Sorry, didnīt understand you the right way at first.

Yes, if Tamiya really care about the EVO3 they should make a different oneway, different gearbox and two or three-piece driveshaft. After that EVO3 would be best car overall.

Everyone is saying .... problems with the one way

I have been driving the TB EVO 3S for these last 5 months ... i.e. more than 50 runs already ... and did not have any problems with the front one way!

Maybe because I use a stock motor ?

I've used a stock motor, it's not really the motor its more running indoor when you have big impacts with track markers from the front /side

Ahhhhhh ...... that's ok then ........ since we have a huge outdoor track in Malta and it is almost impossible to have a big impact with a stock motor

Maybe they should also go with a larger tooth size on the gear like the R2 has as well.

It's a pitty Surikarn was ill at the Japanese Nationals. I'm sure he could have done much better.

Take care

Windtalkers- I don't know if Tamiya's new gears will fix the EVO3 or just make the problem less than it is now, but if things go well I will have a fix for the car that will make it as strong as the TC3's drivetrain. We are still waiting to see if it works or not. That's all I can tell you for now, so stay tuned. No secrets, just don't want to promise something and not follow through.
