Default Gear diff?

Just want to check if anyone tried fitting TB04 gear diff in TB03?

Can't use SPEC-R ones for local Tamiya series.


Thanks

No problem, but you must use the tb03d spool 39t ring gear. They are fairly heavy.

Thumbs up TB-04 gear diff in TB-03

I have it in my TB-03 right now and it works great, but I had to slightly modify the output shaft that the small gear makes contact with the ring gear. Yes, you have to use the ring gear off the spool which has a larger center hole to mount to the gear housing. the shaft makes a little contact with the housing so I just filed maybe .3 mm at most just until it clears, take too much off then the e-clip that holds the gear won't stay on the shaft. I used 3000 wt oil with the metal gears, the plastic ones wore out quick. Low maintanance diff is awesome!
Just my 2$

rear
rear back 1e block
rear front 1xa block
will give you 3 deg toe in
front
front front 1b
front rear 1b
mid track, no sweep,
also add all aluminum spacers if not already, and shim everything so there is no play
with the suspension blocks you need to play a little, and you will get them perfect without any play, if you do not get them spaced correctly, you can be off by .5 degrees on either side, not much but with a shaft car very noticable

^ that's what I ran on carpet. If you need to free the car up, you can run a 1d in the RR position.

The rear rear was an A so I switched it to a C. This should help.

Tried the D block and it seems to work good
What about the front? Currently has B blocks
In front using on med-high grip carpet
Also is there any advantage to going to the
Carbon fibre damper stay?

Did I hear right that Tamiya is releasing this chassis again with carbon upper and lower decks or is that the TB04?
