And as we've seen with other Evos - most lately with the FF03 Evo - it's unlikely they'd do that. Of course you can't rule out Tamiya doing a fresh run next year in a slightly amended spec like they've done with the TB04 Pro/Pro II but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Different topic but do you think there's a market in the UK for the 05v2? No one at our club is getting one, the majority of us have switched to the M06 since earlier in the year. Those who have indicated an interest are biding their time for the chassis and arms to be released as spare parts and will just convert existing (and unloved) v1s.
Oh well, it would have been great to have had another UK racer using an Evo. As to the m05v2, I dont know. I am tempted to get an m06 as we run superstox at my club (only a few) so I was tempted to race that with those guys.

Yep. Comes with 1 piece blocks fore and aft at both ends, but I understand the chassis has the ability to take split style blocks as well.

Tb03 uses one piece blocks, but yes, split blocks fit fine in FR and RF positions.

Sorry i meant, if i want use split suspension mounts(54173 for FR and RF) of TB03, then can keep using those original long ones (13458124 for FF and 13458125 for RR) of tb evo6 without need also to buy old long ones of Tb03?

Yep, all tamiya blocks are pretty much interchangeable

Started building my Evo6 a couple days ago. This is my sixth shaft drive Tamiya build I've done in the past year. They are all kind of the same, but there are some differences between parts and gear sets. A couple of things I did in addition to what the manual calls for:

1. I affixed the 20t gear that is on the spur adaptor to the adaptor with the smallest smear of Shoe Goo. I tried using a piece of plastic to shim it, but the gear to gear clearance was too tight IMO and I needed another solution else it was going to be noisy.

2. The pinion gear on the transmissions need to be shimmed tighter. I added 0.3mm of shims between the outer bearing and the outside part of the shaft, giving the pinion less plunge.

3. Remember when I said the side to side clearance is different between the carbon rein and the kit plastic gear cases? Because it is...

4. I used some joint grease between the input shaft and the main shaft. Use something here. This shaft needs to move slightly as the chassis flexes. If it was solid, it wouldn't flex at all like the tb03.

I'm dissatisfied with the main shaft that attaches transmissions to the motor. IMO, that shaft would be better served if you could shim the plunge depth, rather than rely on the spring (inside the front transmission outdrive) and the driveshaft to keep preload on it. The tb04 suffers from this as well. I'm pretty sure I know why they engineered it this way, but I still don't like it. No big deal.

Do I think it will be as quiet as my TB03? No. Am I confident it will be acceptably quiet? Absolutely. About the same as the tb04.
