You can use a normal lipo that it's height is 25mm or less and just tape it in. 25mm will just fit under, so if you find a 24mm one then even better.

The only ones I have seen with the bumps are only like 3200 or 3800 mah. I haven't seen anything higher myself.

The good news is that it did fit! See pictures below. (I didn't shim them perfect but close enough for testing.) The only thing that is off is that it does move the spur gear closer to the motor mount so the hole cut out in the bottom of the EXO chassis is not lined up anymore. This really isn't an issue because the biggest spur gear that will fit is a 84 tooth (64p.) There is still clearance under the spur gear as seen in picture 2.

I have the MS (picture 3) and Standard motor mounts (picture 2) shown.
I bent the same part. Don't ask how. But I used the part from the TB03 and flipped the spur adaptor around and re-shimmed everything. Can't even tell it's not the correct part. No mods to it. Just took my time shimming all the slop out. Hope this info helps

I assume this was using the standard EVO 5 spur gear holder and not the TB03 holder like I tried in the photos. The TB03 holder moves the spur much more to the front then the EVO 5 holder would.

Default First Race with My Exotek Evo5 !

Hy there!

Raced my Evo5 Exotek for the first time last Weekend, and i have to say it was a pleasure to drive!

I practiced only 3 Packs on Saturday and it was dailed in from the first Practice Pack to the last final run!

Managed from 4th in the grid 3rd overal in a competitive filed. Thx to Mike for the superb conversion work.

Greetings Rainer

Are you using split blocks? Or just the normal blocks for the FR and RF blocks

Hy!

I used the normal 1 pice al around. The car have so much flex, so i think its not neccesary.
I also have installed the center post, and runed geardiffs F and R. Front Ride gum, and rear 2k oil.

Greetings Rainer

The TB03 part would've also worked. I just wanted to keep everything blue. You have to turn the spur gear adaptor on opposite from the instructions

Will both front and rear propeller shaft from the TB03 fit on the Evo5 with some shimming?

What gearing (64P) is a good start for Blinky 17.5?

Spec-r makes gear diffs for the TB03. They are the only gear diffs that will fit. (I have them front/back as well.)

From what I have read so far, the 502 diff assembly is shorter then the tb evo 5, so the whole diff would fit would just have to shim it correctly, has anyone tried this mod, using the entire 502 diff, versus just the gear and ball and using all the tb evolution parts thanks
