Default broken rr hub

Hi guyz,

I just broke my rear hub when i had a bad crash a week ago, any fix for this or countermeasure so in the future it wont happen again ( of course- beside from crashing again). I already used long screw (3x18 f/h screw) but to no luck it just broke off.


(item#3 on page 21) where 3x18 f/h screw have to be fixed

Thanks in advance.

Sometimes parts break in a hard crash.

Hey Chaya. Where did it break? On the top where the screw goes in? If so the other option other than the longer screws is to use an aftermarket part that slots over the plastic. I cant remember who makes it. I think it was K-Factory.

If you cant find it then what I have done in the past is to use the washer off the old car that is used to sperate the rear axle for 2 degree wheels.

You will find that it slides straight over the plastic on the top of the hub and will offer extra support in the event of a crash. Hope you know what I mean.

I will try and take a pic tonight if you dont.

Hey Scott,

Does running the ball bearing peice remove a bit of the slop on the top arm?

Does the plastic piece come in the kit or is it an option part?

Yup Barg, that is the exact point where it broke off

Anyway ill try your suggestion. Ill try to look for some washer and have it cement on that portion just to give extra support as you where saying.

Thanks

Yes, it does remove a bit of the slop on that end. I can't say for certain with the EVO2, but it did come with my EVO WC kit. My guess is that it came with the EVO2 kit as well, but I don't know for certain.

Hi; Scott
What are the differences between the various fuel tanks - VZ207, VZ207B and VZ207C. My tank has a leak ( VZ207C) . I have two of the VZ207 tanks (new spares from an eariler car) and will be attending the ROAR 1/10 Nationals. Do you think I should use the new spares or get another VZ207C tank?

I've got a couple of G4 parts on my Evo 2 already and they fit pretty well (rear brake rotor, brake pads and front cvd's) but do you think this will fit?

I don't know the differences. I remember when the EVO 2 car came out I asked what the difference was between the 207B and the 207C and the initial answer was "I didn't know there was a new tank." I remember than Ron and I both compared the tanks and we couldn't visually see a difference. I am going to send out an email asking about the differences but my guess is that there is some difference(s) in the cap/seal and or the fuel pickup.

I asked about the tanks and the answer I got was " they have revised the lids to make them stronger".

Can you get harder springs for the 2d clutch system other than the one that comes in the kit.
stock setup up is .3 of thread showing on the nut . i was in about .98 mm and the clutch felt so good very snappy and responsive. does going tighter on the clutch nut effect the run time. and should i gear the engine a bit higher for the loss of initial rpm from a tighter nut setting .
cheers
alex

You can try using the Orion spring.
