The TB-02 comes with a spur holder on one of its parts trees. Unfortunately, you would only be able to use 48 pitch metric spurs anyway since the motor mount has fixed mounting holes.

As people have told you before, you can only use the metric 48th pitch pinion and Tamiya spur gears. You cannot run the evo motor plate nor any of the 64 pitch gears.

and further the diffs are prone to stripping. they may not even show wear but you can hear them grinding as it slips gear mesh. Not a good pick for racing. as I have found out the hard way.

I have explored every gear mesh combination. So if you still want to run this car, you should pick up a metric 26 t and 28t pinion and the 52t f201 spur gear. these gears should allow you to achieve a 5.3 and 5.5 final gear ration. these are good for some hi torgue stock motors especially the tamiya 23 turn motor. by the way tamiya does not offer the 26 and 28t pinions. these gears are available from Kawada and can be order thru cham RC in japan.

The TB-02 stock motor mount (and alum hop up mount) has 4 positions. So you can run pinion gears from 16T to 25T. Spurs from 55T, 58T, and 61T.

Resulting in ratios 9.91 down to 5.72

When I use the 61T spur, and 16T pinion in my TB02, will this mesh in the 4 holes adjustment?

Because I installed a 61T spur and want to buy the 16T pinion, I just dont know if it will mesh there within the 4 holes adjustment.

Yes it will mesh just fine. I used this exact gearing combo with my reedy kr 7 turn and the stock motor mount. Just make sure to keep the motor mount good and tight. I didn't, and the pinion walked around some and trashed the spur.

Check out the TB02 Thread, the last couple pages talks about running 64 pitch gears with the stock motor. I am running 64 pitch gears with a 3Racing motor mount. I will be using the car in RCGT this fall. I am running a Plastic Spur Gear holder that can in the kit.
I hope this helps

ah yes! I have just installed the 16T and it works good, it is the smallest pinion i could put in there to mesh with the 61T spur and screw the motor mount the stock position, at the upper right and lower left holes.

Anyway I put in a mamba motor.

Also my TA05 V2 just arrive yesterday and I started building it. I will put Ezrun 5.5T 6000kv in there, and the 60A ESC looks great and will fit in there with no problems.

Thanks!
