If you ever need parts or a spare vehicle, I have a evo 4 with ms hop-up parts, rolling chassis, very clean and available for sale.

no i meant when u buy the TB03 spool, it comes with a TBe5 gear in the bag.
Gotta swap this for a proper eIV "oneway" gear.

each of the eIII/IV/5 have their own unique gears so never intermix


re parts availability, depends how u see it

eIII = TB02 so a lot of the gears, plastic bulkheads & diff outdrives
got boughtup by TB02 people which led to shortage

e5 = TB03 so same again for gears, diff parts, centre shaft etc
but they're still a current model so shouldn't be parts shortage

eIV otoh is a bit of an orphan, its got own gears & nothing unique reused
on another model ... so some LHS may still have unsold old stock


eIV has their own rctech thread

btw i am reminded that Spec-R now makes a gear diff for TB03

http://www.spec-r.com/default/index....roducts_id=141

should fit the e5 nicely but not sure if the gear's
teeth profile difference will hinder its use in eIV

I have a TB EVO 3 Surikarn with a front one way which is not really working for me on the track.
Can I take the ball diff from my TB02 and drop it straight in ?

Thanks in advance.

Hello to all.
I have the Evo-III Surikarn Limited + blue metal kit.
I decided to upgrade the model with the metal suspension.
Could you tell me which are better: GPM or YeahRacing ?

Which model alloy hop-up to choose& TB-02 or TB-03 or maybe TA-05 ?

Thanks for help.
