Mine was hooking up very well, but I roasted a bevel gear in the second qualifier and that bumped me out of the A. I didn't even hit anything this time, just came around a bend in the track and front wheel drive let go.

hey, is the KR-1200 any good? How is it compared to say a quantum pro-sport? Is it betta than a GT7? I can get it for a good price...and it says it doesn't have a motor limit.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck futureal.

The Tamiya servo savers leave a little to be desired. I have been using a Kimbrough servo saver in my cars just for a little more precise steering feel and yet have the protection of a saver. A lot of guys have been running a direct servo horn instead of a servo saver but since I don't really trust my driving yet, I've been using a servo saver. Just go to your LHS ask to look at all of the servo savers and pick one with the least slop

I tried a Kimbrough saver on the car a few weeks ago and found that the ballstud/cup did not have enough clearance from the server when turning right, so I had to go back to the Tamiya one.

The problem with the Tamiya saver seems to be that the clamps do not hold their form well. When installing them, you have to be very careful not to bend them, or they will lose their "grip" and your saver will slip.

I still had a blast racing the car though. It was set up very well, and seemed to be one of the fastest out there.

Thanks for the setup Peter!
IŽll will try out this weekend.
Have anyone else had problems with the diff? Already after 5 runs I have excessive wear on the diff rings from the diff balls. I don`t think it`s suppose to be like that.

I'm also having problems with my ball diffs, but slightly on a different issue...

I recently installed a front diff (my track has too many tight turns; one-ways just seems too loose). Used all brand new parts (diff rings/lightweight balls/thrust bearing etc), but for some reason, it is just not as smooth as the original rear diff. I reassembled it, and still the same... does anyone know what kind of balls the stock kit came with? I'm sure it's not carbide, but it does feel like it compared to the diff I just built.

Izzy,

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I used the F201 Diff Rings (not the TA04 ones)... the diff works, but a little gritty... I'll try to use anti-wear grease on the balls itself and see if it works better... =)

Eeyan it will help keep things smooth I use Carbide always and polish the rings when they become worn. 1-2 months on average. One caution on using the AW is that it will thicken the diff action considerably from the usual lubes. I prefer it myself especially on carpet but it is fine outdoors

i have heard that Satoshi (japanese TRF driver and winner on the recent 8th annual yama yama cup) has been removing one of the gold rings from the servo saver...

not sure as to what this does, but is might releave some the problems that you guys are having.

Interesting to note that all of Tamiya's top talent are running Evo IIIs now.

Any word on exactly which platforms the HPI and Yokomo drivers were running? "Spy" shots on the net anywhere?

I think that with careful preparation, the Evo III is a top car. However, you really need to check the one-way bevel gear -- and possibly the servo saver -- before each race. Sort of a drag, but maybe worth it after seeing some of the success people are having with the car.
