Ed, glad you were happy with your first outing. I think I managed the quick rotation by using a sorex 28 up front and sorex 24 in the rear (or whatever combo you may need for your track but you get the drift). Also I made a few tweaks since the last update : )

Mine used to do that as well, more often that I wanted. Changed to the carbon reinforced gearboxes and haven't had a problem since.

well, with a carpet with low grip, and running 10.5, I have chucked in the towel with the TB-03 and handed it over to the kids in 27t. I just couldn't get rid of the dreaded torque steer.

Well, the pinion gear wasn't an issue for me really, I just made sure it was shimmed right, with a lot less movement in it than when I picked up the car. A new one is on order, so that'll be fine.

As for the handling... well, I'm pretty sure I can get it sorted without having to resort to different compund tyres, just need to slow down the mid corner rotation a little

Didn't notice any torque steer at all at the weekend... car accelerated straight as a die, and turn left and right equally well. Obviously, may be different with a higher power motor, but nothing at all with the 17.5

10.5, out of right corners it was fab, out of left corners, it was more a drift car

didn't have any issue's with the the crownwheel and pinions though.

Awesome. TryHard is running a TB03.
Your Tamiya 415 website helped me setup my car 100's of times.
I can only hope you'll have a small TB03 section.

I have the spool and it's pretty nice. I'm saving it for the outdoor season as I have sheared off the drive pin off the drive shafts (and yes I am running the steel ones up front) on two seperate occasions after hitting the boards. The steel outdrives are nice but not very forgiving. I actually went back to the diff or one way depending on the layout indoors.

why not use the alum. diff halves and make your own spool. they use the plastic blades.. those give in a hard crash.. then you just have to replace those.

I finally got mt TB03 running this past weekend(setup for GT3). Love the car. I may change all of my cars(17.5, Silver Can and T/A) over to the TB03.

One question: Is there any way to get the drivetrain quieter??

Also has Tamiya releast the chassis by itself?

yes.. they sell spare tubs. the carbon version is coming out soon.

once your drivetrain breaks in.. you'll just hear it "whirl" by.

Is there anyone(H.S.) in the US that has the spare chassis for sale? I hope the Carbon tubs are not like the TA05 Carbon Tubs(WARPED). I got two chassis that are bad. Looking forward to see TB03R when it gets here!

Speedtech had a normal plastic one.. but i quickly purchased that when it became available. Best bet, do a search for "TB-03" on the tamiya site, email Jeff at speedtech (he's the owner) and order a batch of stuff you need.

my guess, if the carbon tub is reinforced like the TA05.. it will be warped. from what i remember... most tubs were like this and its a pattern with molded tubs with how they cool...molding process etc. (they all have some sort of tweak. )
