I guess that would explain why that car went from dialed to terrible!! If the tires pointed straight the drive train was fine, when turning the wheels it would lock up the drive train.

either way Charlie drove awesome!! There is always next year.

If anyone wants the setup pm me. The car was dialed until it broke. LOL
Yo EJ, its Mike Patterson, you have a PM

Default red Square hubs

I have these red rear hubs made by square. Are they the same ones to the blue one that tamiya makes?

The Tamiya Blue Aluminum Rear uprights are 1 degree the square looks like its 1/2 a degree. How everything else mounts looks right.. I like how the square carrier had a setscrew for the hingepin.

I use Serpent's bearing lube - pretty light and lets the bearings run really smooth.

Can't comment on those bearings I got my bearings from a friend at the circuit - but I don't know the manufacturer.
I'm sure someone else can answer this question for you

Cheers, Mark.

I got ceramic bearings for my 415 and they are definitely freer and smoother than the metal ones. The only down side is that they seems to be more fragile too. I have never broke the blue bearings that came with the Evo3 SL but I broke a couple of the ceramic ones in a nasty crash.

Default free drive train

anybody have any tips on making the EVO III drivetrain more free? I have the SE and I can't get it to spin even one revolution when spinning the spur gear. it's catching somewhere. I've rebuilt the rear diff, changed all the gears, cleaned and re-lubed the stock bearings, but ???

HELP!!

Default one more thing

okay, i just realized that the new one way gears i recieved from Tamiya are really thick. How are you guys using these things? they are way to thick to fit in the gear box. I've been using the Jurgen one way and his spool. I even put on the stock oneway with the new gears but it still won't fit!

I'll read back to see if anybody has already addressed this too

thanks for the help again

vic

Brand new gears need to be run-in to be smooth.

Stick a 540 in there and run it for a few hours.

Runs-in faster if you have no lube on the gears.



But as long as there's nothing notchy about the drivetrain, it
doesn't affect laptimes noticeably so I don't bother running-in
anymore.

Hope you've shimmed your diffs accordingly.

Sorry guys, you won't be able to upgrade TBe3 to TBe4.

About 95% of the parts will be different!!

Only thing recognisable on the TBe4 manual are the J-parts (battery holder) and the spurgears.

Chassis plate is new, mounting points for new gearbox is different so these parts cannot be retrofitted to TBe3.


Can new bevel gears fit? Will have to wait till they ship... but seem to be *both* sold with bevel pinions in the bag.

51109 TBe4 ONE WAY GEAR SET gives 2x Oneway Ring Gear, 2x Bevel Pinion gear

51110 TBe4 BALL DIFF GEAR SET gives 2x ball diff Ring Gear, 2x Bevel Pinion gear


TBe4 suspension hingepins now sold separately... 51093 (46mm), 51097 (10mm screw pin), 51098 (22mm screwpin) & 51099 (25mm screwpin).
