Let's hope this chassis protector does its job...

BOOTY SHOT

Once again, your feedback is very much appreciated!

Unfortunately the arms did not come with the blue conversion kit; they were some aftermarket part that came with the TB02 when I bought it. This was everything that came with the kit:



Also, if you guys want a deal on the upper and lower carbon deck for evo III, PM user x414x, I think he still has a set for sale

tbox, which company produces the after mart part for the arms. Can I substitute it with arms for Tamiya 416 or X series. Are they compatible?

Thanks KREATOR1! Post up pictures when you're done!!

Toh WL: as far as I know, GPM, Topcad, and Yeah Racing all make aluminum arms that fit TB02/TA05/EVOIII. Topcad ones are rather hard to find since they have been discontinued, but GPM and Year Racing ones are all accessible through either Ebay or RCMart:

GPM

Yeah Racing Front
Yeah Racing Rear

Topcad front
Topcad rear

As for if they fit on the 416...I have no idea because I don't own one, but I can tell you if they fit on the 415MSXX MRE maybe tomorrow, if that helps.

Now that the project is over, I guess I should share my inspiration.
This is the COOLEST/BLUEST EVOIII anyone will EVER see:

TechRacing used to make one, probably out of production now.

I hear some ppl have fitted the 3Racing TB03 spool.

I have tried Tamiya's TB03 spool and it doesn't not fit right, too wide.

YeahRacing made alloy diff outdrives for TB02, could just assemble your own spool by bolting them solid.

I think you can try www.tamiyausa.com for most of replacement parts if they're not discontinued.
