I'm running a bl motor so there are no caps but as I said above I tried my old motor and esc and even a whole different rx and tx and stii it does it. The only thing I can think of that's different now is all the alum front end pieces. I gave all the graphite to my nehew so I can't put it back on. Do you think an FM radio would work better?

Sounds exactly like what happened to mine when i installed aluminum.

Raz, try running with a reciever pack. This greatly decreased glitcing and increased range for mine when it was acting up.

I just talked to a tech. at futaba and he suggested an FM too. He said he didn't know if it would cure the problem but when running a bl motor he said I should upgrade to FM anyway for better control. So it looks like an FM radio is next. For now I'm going to try it with the old bulkhead and see if that helps at all being less metal to metal.

well its installed and looks like its going to work really good (theeth match up perfect) only problem i had was the evader dif bearing was to big so i had to dremmel out the hole(u could prob just get a new bearing) in the associated diff gear (luckley i had a bit that was the perfect size )it was a little tough(big chance of not centering the hole but its looking good and dosent seem to be out of round (it turns smoothley )

here r some pics

well the b2 diff gear is sounding smother than the orignal gear so far havent ran yet
(i only reccomend using one if u have a steady hand/to make the bearing hole larger //unless u can find a bearing that will fit bolth the evader and the associated diff gear) but after installing the tranny in my vader and turning the tires it seems super smooth and the b2 diff gear looks to be a loot better nylon and is 1.00 cheaper

There is a different bearig that works, I believe the ones you have are 5x8 and you need a 5x10. I think that is right. Or you can just dremel it out like you did. Both methods work. So next time you can try the bearing. Also, I hear the associated diff rings are a little better. I think they are just a little thicker and last longer. The nylon is better that associated uses. You should look into replacing the idler with the metal one too. You will have to let us know how this one holds up. I have only heard one person say they have done the plastic b2 gear. He said it lasted longer than the duratrax one.

Nice to know it was a pretty easy install.

yea it was easy took about 2 min with the tranny already out (that includes dremmeling and reinstalling into the car)the part that took the longest was digging the stock diff balls out of the melted stock dif gear


i think the associated diff rings are a little bigger it seems like the stock diff rings only cover half of the diff balls but it seems to slip ok with a loose diff setting but im tightening mine pretty tight now since im running my low turn motors and am looking for speed not controll

also u got a link or asc part # for the other gear

That is for an aluminum idler gear. Sixteen isn't that bad. There is no other one that will work. If you go and look, you won't find any metal gears that are much cheaper than 16 bucks. There is a metal b2 diff gear but they are almost impossible to find. In fact, I had someone offer me $50 for my metal diff gear. That is how scarce they are.

It takes a lot of work to machine those gears, they will cost more than the plastic parts. If you buy that alum idler gear you will never have to replace it again. It will pay for itself pretty quick.

why do you need a 5/8 bearing on the b2 diff gear i thought they were the same... isnt the stock diff bearing in the evader tranny a 5/10.... and also this might sound silly but i havent opened the tranny yet but where would the bearing be located

its in the center of the diff gear and the stock evader diff bearing will not fit the b2 diff gear i used a dremmel tool to modify my b2 gear but its tricky business
if u dont do it right the gear will not turn true and u defeat the purpose of replacing the gear

everything els is the same outside diameter and number and size of diff balls

I think the inner bearings are 5x9. So you have to dremel out a tinny bit if you run the stock 5x9 bearings. The outer diff bearings are 5x10.

the reason i ask was i just got off with tower trying to change my order cuz i just bought a bunch of stuff for the diff and tranny, but got the wrong bearing for the b2 gear, but to late im stuck with the 5*10 bearing ... but all is well i ordered the 5*8 bearing and they waived off the shipping costs,,,, got to love tower hobbies
