Do you have the part number for the ball diff for these?

Questions?? Converting TB04 to the EX06 chassis suspension shafts????

Ok maybe someone who has converted a tb04 to the ex06 chassis can answer this? I am looking at my TB04 manual and the stock suspension shafts are 46mm front and rear , the EVO6 has 46mm shafts in the rear and 43mm shafts in the front, When I convert my tb04 over to the exo6 chassis will I have a problem with the stock tb04 46 mm shafts in the front?

You also need the tb04 parts pack for the conversion.

If you are referring to the front axles I am using my 44mm rears from my old 417 and the same 417 front dcj in the front but using 42mm axles ,these parts are the same as are included in the evo6 . it is the inner hinge pins/ suspension shafts that I think I may need to replace , I have the exotek conversion and tb04 parts pack I will review the parts included to see if that resolves the issue .

I was able to get the 17.5 put all together with electronics, tires, and body. With a 5000mah batt the car comes in at a perfect 1385g. The weight balance is split 50/50 left to right. But running bout 40g heavier in the rear.

Since I'm stuck inside because of all this rain in South Carolina (should have bought an RC boat to have some fun), maybe I can get a new body painted up too.

Looks like the exotek tb04 parts pak gives me 42mm suspension shafts and the ev6 front suspension shafts appear to be 43mm?
I guess its just a few more or less spacers shimming the shaft?

Use a 1mm shim at the front just like the set up sheets already posted.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Both cars built and ready to put on the track. Hopefully I can get the lids painted up before this weekend. I can always run my old bodies, but a good looking car on the inside deserves a good looking exterior.
