Thanks,

There are no 'diff kits' unfortunately. You will have to source all the parts separately. If you need part numbers and don't have the manual, you can download it from HERE

I do have an EVO III and it is currently chucked in a corner of my store room...

If you really feel the need to resurrect this great-old-car, it share the same entire gearbox with TB-02... Just get a TB-02 kit and migrate the required parts... which will cost you much much less than getting the diff parts separately... or either way you can assembled a fully hop-up TB-02 EVO using all the goodies left in your EVO III.

Heard that Tamiya USA is clearing TB-02 kit at cheap sale, you may want to give a serious considerations on that...

Good luck!

PS: I love those old TA-04 suspension arms assembly on the EVO III and TB-02. They are just so much tougher than the LW reversable arms assembly...

Hi guys, i have a TB02D and i'd like to get front one way and universal joints. Which parts do i need?

Can i use TA05 diff cups for the ball diff? Are there any aluminium diff cups for this car?

Is there spool diff for this car?

Can i use TA05 carbon damper stays for this car?

Thanks.
Herman.

hiya Herman,

i have an evo3 and they are similar.

front one way is the one from evo3, word of warning though, your gears are in peril! a small knock will cause the gears to strip out with one way.

there is no spool made for the evo3/tb02 but peeps in the forum say you can use evo4 spool, i haven't tried and there is no point. a hot motor in an evo3/tb02 is gonna cause even more stripped gears then you'd like to spend time on replacing.

universals are 42mm ones if you continue to use the original suspension arms. if you change to LW arms, you need 45mm.

there are no alu diff cups either.

ta05 shock towers dunt fit cos evo3/tb02 towers are 2.5mm thick, ta05 ones are 3mm...

chin chin!

-alexander

Wah kau, so many issues. Guess i just keep this car stock. Anyway it drifts well with the stock parts and set up. Maybe i'll just add bearings to the steering.

I have also heard that the diff screws break easily. May i know which manufacturer makes better diff screws? Part number? Does BK or Winnie stock this?

evoIII should already have bearings in the steering?

Don't overtighten and i've never broken a diffscrew in evoIII;
TB02 another story.

Balldiffs are NOT designed to be totally locked by simply tightening the screw.

Tamiya M2x25mm screws are easy to find spare; or HPI/HB diff screw is also M2x27mm.

NO it does NOT unless you've used a crowbar to jam it in

EvoIII diffs are 22.5mm wide where the bearing sits

EvoIV spool is 24.0mm wide using metal TA05 outdrives.

Slightly narrower at 23.8mm using delrin 415 outdrives.


EvoIII diff/oneway fits into the evoIV only because of the stack of shims.

Evo5 has its own diff but uses same oneway with lots of shims.

why bother anyway? whats so good with TA05 CF towers?

EvoIII already got 2 types, standard & Surikarn CF towers.

mounting point on the gearbox is totally unique, no other type will fit
