Not yet. Waiting to order parts. I'm sure it will fit without the diff covers

Yes, the TB04-Diff fits perfect, I had only changed the shiming.
You can run the Evo with 39/16 and 40/16 internal ratio, but I wasn't able to use the Spool with the 40, so I build my car with 39/16.
I hope Tamiya will bring alloy outdrives, that's the only thing I'm missing.

Here you can see my car for ETS Hrotovice:


And the TB04-Diff in my Evo5:

Thanks JanTRF, great news. Its good that you can use the standard 39t gear, i thought you would have to swap out the pinion gear as well, but having looked at the manual i can see how it all works...well done Tamiya!

Just ordered the parts from Banzai.

How does the diff feel straight from the packet?

A few posts above JanTRF says that he would like to see alloy outdrives as a hop up, i think 51554 will be the usual Tamiya steel. Blades aren't used which is a pain as the steel will groove quite quickly. Looks like the dremel will be required!

The description at rcmart says material alloy...
But i also think it will be steel, but as you said without blades...

The outdrives are heavy, they are steel!

The diff feels good, but my 417 gear diff is also new and runs better.
But that could be, because I wanted to try the fitting in my Evo and build it in a hurry.
I also used the plastic cross-shaft for the bevel gears, it isn't a good fit. I will order 54533 asap.

What do you think about the use of ballbearings for the outdrives. Less friction, but also less sealing...

Just installed the TB04 gear diff. Not much shimming. Hope to have time this weekend to try it out.

I hope they come out with metal gears. I noticed that the metal cross pins are available.
