Build/Tuning Tips

Originally Posted by RoyJ
  • My 21T motor pinion did not want to mesh completely with the 80T spur, so I did have to machine/Dremel the motor plate's adjustment slots to be 2.5-to-3mm longer. Now I can slide the motor closer to the spur, and can even use the 75T or 77T option spurs.

  • The Gear Differential seemed a little notchy after the screws were tightened down. I added an extra diff gasket #T02153 which made the diff smooth as butter, even with 3Kwt oil. After trying 700wt, then 2K and 3K, I have returned to 1K and see no need to change it in most track conditions. It now feels much like a brand new fully greased ball-diff run extremely loose, but with no chance of slip/barking. With the extra gasket in the diff, there is no more excess mechanical friction from the overtightened internal mesh, so the diff oil stays cleaner longer, which will extend maintenance intervals.
The included inserts for TU0269 allow you to adjust toe-in and anti-squat. Toe is adjusted laterally, and anti-squat vertically.

Toe Adjustment:
*The inside-dot insert position provides 1 degrees of toe-in, for less cornering stability; best for carpet or high-traction conditions, where more corner rotation is needed.

*The center-dot insert position provides a stock position of 2 degrees of toe-in.

*The outside-dot insert position provides 3 degrees of toe-in, for more stability while braking and cornering; best for loose track conditions. (If used with +1deg rear hubs, the car can become twitchy due to too much toe-in.)


Anti-Squat Adjustment:
*When the inserts dot is in the upper position, regardless of toe angle, it provides 1 degree of anti-squat, which is best for bumpy-grippy conditions.

*When the insert dot is in the middle position, regardless of the toe angle, it provides 2 degrees of anti-squat, the stock position.

*When the insert dot is in the lower position, regardless of toe angle, it provides the maximum 3 degrees of anti-squat, which is best for super-smooth, high-grip or carpet conditions, where wheelies can be too easy due to high rear grip.
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I convert my Rear Motor TC02 Evo to the TC02C Evo?

A: Yes but additional parts are required if you want to run kit spec. Parts needed are as follows:
TU0249 - TC02C Evo Conversion Kit
T02204 - Rear Arm Mount
T04008 - Rear Arm
TR4011 - Rear Hubs
T02183 - Rear Bearing Collar
T02143 - Rear Hex
T02262 - Rear Hex Pin
T02263 - 65mm Rear CVD
TR4046 - 2.5x30mm Arm Pin
TU0258 x 2 - Idler Gear (use TU0259 for POM or T02001 plastic)
T02051 - Idler Gear Shaft
T02211 - 5x7 Top Shaft Spacer
T02255 - 3x40 Turnbuckle
TU0266-7 Shock Caps and Spring Cups w/bleeder screws
BS327 - M3x27mm screw

If you want to continue using your existing arms and CVDs, only the items highlighted in bold from the list above are needed


Q: What is needed to run a ball diff in this vehicle?

A: The best solution at the moment would be to run a ball diff assembly from a B5 or B5M. The out drives have a seat for the bearings that is approximately the same width as the Team C gear diff. There is a very small amount of play once it's installed in the gear box but it's nothing some shimming can't fix. I used the entire ball diff including hardware, rings and balls.





Stay tuned, more to come.

Thanks for starting this thread Mark. I just finished building mine tonight. This weekend I will be heading to Warren Michigan t o RC Clubhouse to do some testing Friday and race Saturday. I will update with my findings.
For the meantime here are a couple pics of the buggy after it was built.

I know many do not like the C Clips. To me it doesn't really matter, I have yet to have 1 issue relating to them. I would suggest that if you have have a situation where one was worn out or fell off it was human error during removal, installation that was the cause.
If you damaged one while racing............ well I don't think I need to wade into that one.....

I've never had issues with them either. If someone is constantly replacing broken parts that involve removing and reinstalling the e-clips, then I think the e-clips should be the least of their worries.
I don't remember the last time I broke a front arm but I spent more time looking for a spare in my pit bag than I did replacing it. the e-clips aren't as bad as everyone make them seem.

No, it's not a big deal, just ALWAYS keep extra e-clips and you're good!

No it is not. Late 2013 early 2014 HRP Distribution took on Team C on as the North American Distributor. Many/most stores deal with HRP and can order anything you need/want. There are also lots of online shops selling them.

One place that always comes to mind is Evo Hobbies. Excellent service from Jeff and company. Currently he has a SUPER SALE on. Prices are lower than what Team C sponsored drivers can buy for.

Lots of overseas online sellers too but when you have service and stock like Evo Hobbies why go elsewhere. Happy to answer any questions you might have about the brand.

Check it out.

So by the looks of it, it is my understanding that this buggy is just like a 22 where you buy the kit and it comes with parts for both mid and rear motor configurations?

The reason I bought this buggy over the B5 is the plastic chassis...I'll take all the flex.
