Righto, got my kit a few days ago, haven't yet opened the box, Its 7pm, Racing is on tomorrow, I'd have to leave damn early, which means I've got about 4 hours to build the car if I start immediately..

Who thinks I can do it?


Not me but I'll have a crack at it.

OH BTW. I need to figure out a pinion for the car. Im running in the 13.5, rubber tire class on a smaller carpet track. The kit came with a 22 tooth. I think I am going to give it a shot. Anyone have any suggestions?

That plan turned to crap almost immediately, First I wasted 25 minutes looking for all the diff-balls I scattered over the shed floor (lost 5 of them) and then the wife went out for an hour so I went inside to baby sit the kids.

Done another hour or so after she returned, Lost enthusiasm, Planted myself in front of the TV.

The TB03 comes with short suspension arms already. (from the 416)

I suggest looking into some narrower suspension blocks if you want to decrease track width.

I'm not a suspension block guru, but looking at the Tamiya charts in the above link. It apears that their "F" blocks are the narrowest. This I would think would require the 42mm drive shafts however.

CS,

I'm not sure about what FDR you get stock. With a 13.5 I would start somewhere in the range of 4.7 FDR and check temps. If it's hot go toward 5.0. If it comes off at say 110degF for example go toward 4.5FDR. If your lap times suffer from going toward 4.5, obviously go the other direction.

Hey guys, i have one question, just to be sure can i use the TRF416's front/rear uprights and the hub carriers on the TB-03? I believe that are the same part but i want to be absolutely sure.

You can pretty much use all the suspension components from the 416. They are exactly the same. The only difference is the material used.

When i look at all the pictures of the suspension mounts it looks like F is tha longets one!
Or are i wrong?

The chart it comes with says its in the 7.2ish. It would need a huge pinion to get to the 4 range.

I use a 82 spur and 47 pinion to get a 4.25fdr for 17.5. I can probably still gear up to a 48 or 49 pinion since I temp around 140F. The free drive train is helping with the temps so keeping it smooth is one area to take care on.

BTW, anyone know where I can get a 64P 48-50 tooth pinion? All of the places that I shop are missing the entire line from 46-50 for some reason.
