Tamiya shock oils are numbered 400, 500, 600 etc...

so does 400 = 40wt, 500 = 50wt etc?

thx

Couple more questions:

I have some play in my spur gear; it seems to move back and forth on the shaft about 1mm or so. Is this normal? I would think not. The car seems to operate fine with it like this, but it still is worrying me.

On the bevel gear issue with the front one-way: how does one know when this gear is going bad (other than physical inspection)?

I also took out the battery mounts on the car and went to directly strapping the batteries in with tape. My GP 3300s would not fit between the battery mounts at all. With an XXtra receiver, GT7 speed control and Futaba 9550 servo, everything is a very, very tight fit.

Even with old, cruddy tires and no set up to speak of, the car did OK tonight. Tonight wasn't a race night, so I opened up the track and spent about 3 hours playing around with the settings and taking laps with the car by myself. It definitely has the off-the-mark pull that the TC3 has, and handles quite nicely. I will do some more testing once I get my spring set and a new body mounted.

a few answers:

1. the movment back and forth on the shaft about 1mm or so is normal and ok

2. you can use the supplied tamiya batt brace providing you file away some material off the "J2" plastic parts (see pics below): my GP3300'S and Sanyo 3300's fit. I still use some tape to prevent cell exit!

You dont need to use tape. What I did was attach two ball cups throught the two holes on the left side of the chassis where the side brace for stickk pack batteries should go. Just use the stock screws. Works fine.

1. The Spur Gear movement is normal
2. To inspect for front Bevel Gear stripping. Take of the pinion gear letting the car move freely and you will feel a tension and will not roll smoothly.
3. I found some cells have individual shrink wrap around them, making it thicker. Before assembly take out the individual shrink wrap, assemble it side by side then you can shrink wrap the whole pack again if you so desire thus will fit on the TB EVO.
I did place 2 small screws that are half shaved with a dremel tool tightened with a small nut to keep the batteries from flying, and place extra hard foams inbetween the battery and holder to keep it from moving. A friend of mine place role up electrical tape about 4mm thick between the holder and battery and appears to have more grip than my foams.
4. That is what's good with the TBEVO3. It's awesome right out of the box.
5. I will pose some new pix of my car and show some mods.

hey guys, if you can...(not racing TCS) get some of Capriesses's stainless steel screw sets. I got one for my evo2 and for the evo3(haven't built it yet :P) I already replaced the evo2's screws and it looks sooo much nicer plus the screws grab the plastic parts better for some reason. probably shaved off a few grams too
and it comes with a bunch of extras in case any break. freaky... they even come with stainless screw rods for the bulk heads, swaybar ball mounts, droop adjuster screws and diff screws...all in a cute bag with a picture of your car. (nice touch)

Hey TRF_Spain

If you have those setup sheets, I'd want a copy too if it's not too much of a bother. If you can please, just send them to [email protected].

Thanks
