also would the mamba max esc fit, and would it be ok to use it with the stock motor?
Shocks being long is ok. Just make sure they are all the same length. Your down travel will be limited by the droop screws anyway. Don't over tighten the lower ball joint as it may cause binding. If you build it exactly how the manual states, you should have about 5mm ride height. It is important to have the pushrods the correct length too.

I heard that only certain servo's fit this car as it has no servo adjustment in the mounts, Do futaba servo's fit ok ?

Does anyone know the spur/pinion combined min/max tooth count (64p) for the TB-03?

I don't think I can fit anything bigger than a 96 spur in there. pinion can go to around 50

Thanks Redbones. The push rods were a little short and adjusted the rear droop screws and everything is just fine. Thanks again.

No, I mean the max/min total tooth count between the spur and pinion combined, that the car can possibly function with.

For example: on my old Schumacher Mi3, the max tooth sum was: 161 teeth and the min tooth sum was 121 when using 64p gears.

That meant that if I used a 120t spur, that the biggest pinion that would fit would be a 41t. 120+41=161

I just find it useful when I'm trying a new car to know the max/min tooth count, that way I can be sure I'm never buying spurs or pinions I don't need. And after a long time of using my TA05 and IFS-R, I know I'll have to pick up a few new spurs and pinions to run proper ratios in the TB-03 in 17.5 racing.

No big deal if no one knows, I was just asking incase someone happened to know.

Darkseid,

I run 17.5 and use a 78 or 80 spur
the pinions I use range from 47 to 51 depending on what I need.

*note I had do use the 80 spur to drop two teeth in my current gearing. while using the 78 spur did not mesh; the motor and pinion did not reach the spur.
HTH.

Default GEAR

WHAT PITCH DOES THE TB03 USES, 64PITCH OR 48PITCH?
WHAT DOES X GEAR MEANS I HAVE SEEN SOME STICKERS ON SOME OF THE TAMIYA PRO DRIVERS CAR STICKERS.

TNX!

Is the TT01 propeller shaft compatible with the TB03?

From memory, the TB03 comes with metric 0.6 module spurs... Easily changed over to any normal 48 or 64 pitch spurs as they bolt straight on.

Dunno about the shaft. I think they are different.

the Ta05 axles do not fit. they use a different bearing size.
you can however use the swing shafts.
you'll have to get TB03/416 axles, it's cheaper to just get the axles then the whole universal set.
