Thanks, Fred
There are no spacers below the bellcranks ...that's what you're talking about, right? It's just a shaft with a step on it. The spacers are on top.

Do you need a measurement on those?

Hey, Jeffrey...I just bought the lightweight shaft (too bad they don't come in blue). I'm in the process of rebuilding the EVO3 and I noticed that both my bevel gears were thrashed and surprisingly, my ring gears were fine. When I went to look for spares, I found that I had a bunch of extra ring gears but no bevel gears. I'm sure the new shaft will help, but right now I need some replacements.

How's the EVO 4 running? Have you been racing lately?

Been racing mostly nitro. Haven't run my electric cars for a couple of months now.

I had the same problem with the Evo3. My ring gears never had any problem but the bevel gears keep breaking. The new shaft will help but you should still check them if you have a big crash, especially the front one.

Yeah! spray it out with motor spray, then follow with a Q-tip, then put some bearing oil on a Q-tip & run it through again.

Hmm, motor spray on the oneway bearings? From what I know this isnīt a good idea. Motor spray may damage the inner plastic of the oneways cage.
I just use Serpent oneway lube on all of my cars and thatīs it.

I havn't had any problems with motor spray on any type of plastic, now if you take some carbeurator cleaner to the same part, and it will melt it! most plastics dont get along with carb cleaner.

Actually I hear the evo4 has the same problem but to a lesser degree. From my experience, shimming is the best way to reduce gear breakage. If you spend some time with the front diff (particularly if you run a spool) and get it shimmed right. It should work pretty well for you in most cases.

Are you shimming the diff or spool or are you shimmimg at the drive shaft cups

You'll need to shim whatever you run...diff, spool, one-way. I use a small shim behind the bevel gears too
