Tb-03 are not horible, I own one and I like it , the car drift really good.
Are you talking of the screws or really the outdrive? cause the screw is good in the tb-03 ( not like the tb-02).
Because I was replacing the plastic outdrive with the allu one anyway and I have a couple diff screws in reserve. I did some test on the diff so see if the screw are fragile like the tb-02 or better one. My goal was to break one of them ( screw or outdrive), and the result is the screw win and the outdrive snap but only with some brute force apply to the screw, Kind of brute force you should not use anyway when you try to lock your diff ...
If you snap your outdrive while drifting with the motor torque ... I dont get it how low traction tire like drift one can snap a outdrive.
To come back to the original question , none ask you where you want to drift or race.. parking lot? club track?
If you want to do some parking lot , I dont recomend the ta-05 cause a lot of rock can come in and break your car and ta-05 is a belt car.. Shaft car are supose to be better at drift.
You are better with shaft car with sealed diff and gear ( Tamiya TB-03 is one of them but im sure other brand make some sealed one).
