The LTW shaft can be used on all the TB's
TB02, EVO, EVO II, EVOIII.

It's also slightly longer then the stock shaft, so you should have no gear box issues with it installed.

Not a bad upgrade for UNDER $10!

I just received my EVO III Surikarn Edition, and need some setup help for carpet racing.

Springs?
Swaybars?
Wheel base?
Droop?
What holes for the upper arms and shocks?

I'm a totally newbie on this, and carpet racing seams to be really hard on no-setup cars!

EVO I'll be at Rain City on Saturday for the open house stop by and I'll go over the car with you for a good starting point.

I was driving the White and blue 415 2 weeks ago

Dan, were you the guy that was with Jeff? I was the hovering guy checking everything out and asking a lot of questions.

Yes, I'll be there on Saturday for the Open House. But I also want to race Burien on Sunday.

Hopefully I'll be racing tonight at Rain City.

Is there any available diff gear set I can buy to replace the front one way. I'm looking for a part# that contains all the items needed to replace the whole oneway diff assembly into a ball diff in one bag... is this available?

thanks for any help

I put a ball diff in the front of mine. There is NO KIT, you have to get all the parts, and they are not cheap, like $40.

Just get all the parts for the rear ball diff, and put it in the front. Watch out, the car handles so differently with it in there!

Thanks for the reply

Umm not sure who Jeff is but Kevin and I were together. Kevin works there @ Burien.

Again I will be at Rain on Saturday for the swap meet and I will prolly also stop by Burien on my way back to Tacoma. Between the 2 we should be able to find each other. I'd be glad to help go through and figure out soe setups with you.

The TB02 diff fits in and is probably a cheaper option.

It's what I did anyway.
