With the shaft being longer, there is less play between the gears, thus you won't strip the gears.

thanks

Fitted it in my car and its 100% better than my car has ever been in the past, it has no tight spots and i can only presume that now the front gear is been supported far better by the shaft and its not alowing the gear to move around anymore.

The 2mm extra length will stop the gear rotating on the shaft as it has done in the past due to it now having more contact area with the gear.

The new oneway gears will help stop the gear stripping by having far nore material to stop the gear flexing on the diff. Rick

As shipping from Asia or US is very expensive 45 EUR arenīt very much.
For a small package you normally pay between 10 and 15US$ for shipping (from Hongkong). A shop from Hongkong wants <4$ for shipping a GPM alloy shaft to Germany(don't know for what model though, just wanted to check out the shipping for a similar item)

Rick

that Team Bomber looks very promising from a optical view and because of the low weight.
how much costs this shaft and what diameter does it have?
I found the stock Tamiya shaft isnīt exactly 6mm in diameter but about 5,8mm so there is a little play in the bearing.
Itīs maybe because a 6mm shaft could block when the chassis twists.

Iīm still using the kitīs original shaft and also the little pinion gear had to be replaced once only.
It has at least 100 runs on it with still a tight fit on the shaft.
Maybe this is because Iīm using the Square gearboxes beside the Jürgen oneway and the additional bearing in the A8 front plastic block.
I think this way the shaft is much better supported and isnīt wobbling around.
But the 2mm longer shaft in the front will be even better.

Sorry Cobra, but that's wrong.

The reason it is reducing the amount of broken gears is because the original shaft allowed the pinion gear in the front transmission to not only strip, but it would deflect or cock sideways because there wasn't enough support near the gear closest to the diff. Now that they are making the shafts longer they enter the pinion gear deeper and therefore stop the gear from deflcting sideways and stripping the oneway gear in the same motion. This is why my fix that I posted a few months ago worked, because it stopped the pinion gear from deflecting. For you guys that have the longer shafts you no longer need to pin the gear to the shaft, but you should still shim the bearing. If you shim the bearing you won't need more bearings in the A8 block or a Jurgen oneway or any of that stuff.

Default TB02

I hope some of you have heard of the new TB-02 chassis cars that have just come out from Tamiya. This is the new tub chassis for the budget racer and isbased on the EVOII (which is the reason why I'm going to ask this question).


What I would like to know if any of you have any experience with this or own one, and if you know if any of the chassis pieces from the EVO III will fit the TB-02 (including the base chassis plate, top plate, etc.)
I know that some hop up parts will fit along with the carbon shock towers...but what about the other carbon plate pieces?

Please help!!!

00SilverSleeper: There is a TB02 thread here on rctech with loads of information. Look for it and you will find answers to your questions.

Well, there IS a TB-02 forum on here. There are not many other carbon pieces ON the car, the Upper deck, the chassis, the shocktowers, the steering linkage, the battery strap, and the bumper brace. Although the car is just a plastic version of the TB EVO, it still has much more flex than the EVO, making the car push. If you are planning to race the car in TCS GT2/GT3 classes, I would recomend buying an EVOIII then buying the TB-02 tub chassis for $15...

To convert an Evo to a "Super TB-02", you'll need the tub, the bellcranks, the motor mount, and 1 10x6mm bearing. Here's the Link for the TB-02 Thread

I'll try this, but just out of curiosity what does lifting the rear toe in block achieve..

Itīs true you could see pictures and a little test there but that website is private and belongs to a driver from Denmark. It doesnīt belong to the guy who makes the oneway.

If you are interested in a oneway please send me a PM. I will direct you to that guy.
You can only buy this oneway from the guy who makes them. Heīs from Germany but he ships international too.
