here is mine after the build. I have literally one day of track practice on it. Hoping to get tonnes of run time in, but would hate to have to wait 2 weeks for parts if I broke something. Im not the best driver, but Im 30 years old, so Im not gunning it into walls at WOT.

Does anyone happen to know what parts are required to convert a tb04 pro into a tb03? Not that there is anything wrong with the tb04 but I think I would like to try the tb03 just for the heck of it.

I know I need a chassis, motor mount, propeller shafts, k parts tree, and a drive shaft

Would be better off finding a used kit

I thought about buying a plain tb03 from tower but I figured that I would end up buying a lot of the same parts I need to convert my tb04 as upgrades to the stock parts

They really do not share a lot of common parts. It's a different chassis layout entirely. Only parts that can be used between them would be suspension arms and CVD axles.

I raced last night in RCGT. Usually I have difficulty with the rear end coming loose mid turn. Last night was quite different. Car was really twitchy and sensitive. Front seemed to turn in much faster than rear, but rear was still fairly planted. I ended up going to C/C in front to make the steering lazy, and laying down the shocks. Car improved but still was not to my liking.

I wish there were more asphalt set ups for this car

Im working on an editable set up sheet. In the mean time here is my current set up so we can compare notes.

Something odd I noticed with this car.. Im using the TRF 84325 springs. The maximum I can lower the car is to 6.5 mm in the rear and 6 mm in the front. I measured my white Kit springs and they are the same length. Needless to say, I am a bit confused..

You are using the kit shocks that came with the TB04 right? The TB04 comes with shorter shocks than the standard TRF shocks. If you are running the standard TRF shocks on the TB04, the car will be too high.

The TB04 shocks bodies are the same length as standard TRF shocks. The shock cap is the only part that is lower in profile. The portion bellow the shock where spring resides is the same length. See attached image from theracer.com

I also measured the springs that came with the kit and the TRF springs. They are the same height.

Yes, I know, but if you put standard TRF shocks on the TB04, the car will be too high.

I think you misunderstood me.. Sorry... I am using the kit supplied shocks with the lower profile caps. The 84325 part number I listed are the TRF mica blue springs.

It appears I need to change to shorter springs.. which begs the question, why the heck did they supply the kit with the standard TC springs and not shorter springs?
