Does anyone have the 3Racing Graphite Conversion kit on a TB-03D? I don't there is much difference between the TB-03 and the TB-03D.

I am thinking about getting it as my next mod. Does it come with everything I need? I think I just have to transfer everything over shouldn't be to hard.

I just don't want any surprises. I plan on sticking on my TB-03D.

The plastic diffs can't hold the diff rings in place without twisting out and melting running that much power. The aluminum ones can handle a 4turn with 2s lipo no problem as I have run that setup in my TB03 no problem. Along with the aluminum diff upgrade I highly recommend getting ceramic diff balls as well

Even so, with so much power, it is important to have your drivetrain very well build. Check all gear meshings (between your bevels and diffs, motor pinion to spur). Make sure the plastic shoe on the UJs are thick with enough meat. If not, the pin on the UJ will eat into your alu diff joints.

These are some of the basic items you should take care of when you are running low turn motors. The enjoyment will last much longer!

Cheers!!
thx kerk, wil do that.

I know I really wanted to go this year. But being right after the TCS nats I couldn't afford to fly back out. I know I would be really distracted with all the Mazda's to drool over haha. I am planning on making it next year for sure...even if I have to curb my eating habits some to save the extra loot

Hi Max,

I think Kerk has used a 10.5 in his before. I have used a 13.5 and a 4 turn in mine with no problems. You will need to get the aluminum diff, aluminum drive cups for the drive shaft, and the drive axles to support the power reliably. Other than that the car handles the power pretty well.

Max,

I ran 10.5 at the Mazda cup with no problems. My car worked very well. (I was supprised because it was in RCGT trim, Tamiya RX7 body and xpattern tires)

But as Timmie mentioned, you will need to upgrade the drivetrain.

Hi timmie and racecrafter, tnks a lot for yr replay which are much confortable, presently i'm owning a team magic e4rs, but last sunday on my first race with it
I had lot of problems and i'll not use it any more.
It means that for the italian tamiya cup i will use it with the only hop up allowed (servo saver and hex), but then i was thinking to purchase the hop up suggested in the tamiya usa tech corner to add when i'lll race 10,5T.

Ciao
Max

I am almost closer to maxing out my steering. The 42mm Swing Shafts for the TB-03D stopped the vibrating and gave me slightly more steering.

I need a longer servo horn. Mine is just to low to give me the little that I need. I am at odds at which servo horn I should get. I am not familiar with them. I need it a little taller. then I can make stuff happen. What would you guys recommend?

ALSO: Do you guys Lube/Grease the Front One Way(54057)? If so what grease/Lube do you use?
