BTW, guys, the revised 3racing gear diff repair parts have finally been released. TQ has them in stock!
They're 01s probably bought about 5+ years ago and was told by our lhs'

No need to wonder... TT01's run 0.6 mod gears.

This 48 pitch story is a common bit of misinformation caused by a certain US manufacturers insistence on calling the gears "metric 48 pitch" when the gears are very different.

True. I got told the same by a few people at the hobby shop, too. If you buy them from Robinson Racing, they're often labelled as "48m". Not sure why. Then again, not sure why Tamiya and a few others went with a non-standard pitch.

Thank you, macros! I jotted this down in my notes.

The Robinson Racing one I bought yesterday was labeled "Metric 20T 1120"
In their description, they state:

"These are .6 mod pinion gears. These are used on cars such as the Tamiya
touring cars(this works on the TA01 and the TA02 but NOT on the TA03). They also work on some other Tamiya cars and on the Kyosho Ultima Pro and the Ultima Pro XL."


So I hope I got the right ones! I bought the 20T and 18T.

Anyone recommend me a good 1/16 scale sized 2S lipo?

I was checking out the Turnegy (sp?) Nano-Tech 2S to use on my M-four.
I need a small one, I think smaller than the Shorty's for this chassis.

Thanks!

check out Hobbyking,
scroll down on the left side to batteries, select Lipo from the list.
ONce on the battery page you can select what type of battery your looking for 1S, 2S, etc. ...and narrow down your search. What is really nice is that they list size and weight of each battery (in addition to capacity and ratings) ...so you should be able to find exactly what your looking for. I've bought several from their site, happy w/ all my purchases.

Quick question,

We run on asphalt, -it's a high grip track.
I am the only one who runs TAmiya slicks (type A's), everyone else runs S Grips. But I've been told that my car looks really planted. It does seem to handle awesome on our track, it is more prone to slide than flip (like the guys running S grips -who always seem to be on two wheels) ...I notice that they sell Type B slicks which are supposedly better for high temp asphalt than the type A's? Does anyone have experience using both A and B type tires? Curious what your experience is w/ them?

note, the few guys whose cars look really planted at our track that have S grips have S grips that are totally worn almost to the point of slicks.

I don't know if this the right size for your needs. I've used it in my 1/16 scale rally car and it's a good battery.

I've used both on a hot asphalt track. The Type B compound is VERY hard. It might be good for tracks using VHT, but for most other asphalt tracks I think you'll be happier with the Type A. I usually run the A on the front, S Grips on the rear of my M05.

Thanks for the suggestion, eR1c! I will check them out.

Wow, that's a bargain, thanks for the info MD!
I read that the nano-tech 2S for 1/16th fits so I will find out what the sizes are on that battery to benchmark the size.

Thanks! I need to rebuild the gears on my M05 pretty soon (getting loud) so will swap all the gears and try the 20t.

nano-tech 2S for 1/16: 87 x 19 x 34mm
GForce 25C for TRX: 88mm x 35mm x 20mm

Looks like they will fit the M-four! both 119g

That's how my S-Grips look like on my V2 and M05. No plans to swap tires until they literally start tearing at the shoulders.



Okay, so the only thing left for me to get is the R614FF-E for the M-Four.
Thanks again everyone for all the tips!!!

Thanks!, Okay, i'll stick w/ Type A's and not bother w/ B's. ..I've been using A's w/ success. Yesterday's race we had about 12 competitors ...some really really good drivers. I ended up 4th in the A main running A slicks all the way around. I ran S grips in the 1st qualifying heat and actually did well, but the front tires were chattering a bit ...and I didn't have the confidence to really take corners ...it seemed like it wanted to tip ..just way too much grip (although it was nice on the straights). My overall times were better w/ the slicks though as I was able to take turns a lot smoother plus I had the confidence to really whip that little car around the track.
