Was going to buy a new motor and esc but that's going to wait, pumped for the tb04 pro II since I missed out on the original one. Can't wait for pictures so we can see exactly what they changed.

Dont think there are major changes... just the arms and hubs from the 418. Original pro came with universals in front and dogbones at the back... new one comes with universals all round (steel shaft in front and alum shaft at the rear). Mods most racers probably do from the get go anyway.

Im sure they fixed the issue with the rear gearbox shaft not alligning properly too, maybe with cf reinforced chassis. I read somewhere that they are putting hex head screws in the kit, ill try find it again

So I wasn't imagining that misalignment?

I reshimmed my friends TB04 and it wasn't too bad actually. I just didn't like the way they designed the shaft with the spur on it. Could have been done better. We'll see how they fix things up, if they fix anything. I'm looking forward to seeing how they do this on the Evo VI.

Per Tamiya;

Product Notice

The TB-04 instruction manual has been revised to address an issue with the alignment of the main prop shaft to the rear gear box. By following the assembly procedure in the addendum the alignment issue is alleviated. Note: The car needs to be driven to seat all the moving parts for maximum efficiency. The amended steps in the addendum affect steps 3-8 in both the TB-04 Pro kit and the standard TB-04 chassis. For more info (click here)

I seen this announcement. When you build a shaft car. Never shim to Tamiyas instructions. Take your time and shim it properly

Mine is quiet too, but there is some misalignment between the trans input shaft and the intermediate shaft. Lotta parts in there to get straight.

Acceptable? Sure. Straight? Don't think so.

Juan,
You know me, my entire fleet are shaft drive cars. This is not a shimming problem we were discussing. We mentioned an alignment issue. On some cars the transmission shaft does not perfectly line up with the pilot shaft. Mine is only skewed probably about .1mm but that is enough to bind every single rotation.
You can try and shift your gearboxes left and right to help but my misalignment goes to the 2 o clock position so I would have to lift the tranny box slightly too. The easiest fix I found is just to loosen the tolerance of the drive pin into the pilot shaft. You can see in the pic I've flattened the pin ends so that it has some play in the cup. Now the alignment doesnt have to be dead on perfect.
Molded parts can be very tricky from batch to batch. Maybe Tamiya has added more fibers or slowed the cooling to better hold the tolerance of the molded parts. I had one of the early release cars.
