Default WTB TCS Legal well optioned TB03

I am interested in seeing if anyone out there has a good, TCS legal, well optioned TB03 that they are willing to part with. I'd like good pictures and a fair asking price. Please feel free to PM me if you have one that you would part with.

Thanks

All PM's replied to. Thanks to everyone for the quick responses.

If I can get all requested pics from PM's by tomorrow, I'll make my selection and issue payment by end of day tomorrow. I'm on Eastern Standard Time and will check my inbox a few times between now and mid-day tomorrow.

It's nice to see this chassis still competing I just finished wiring up a TB03r with gear diffs and I'm itching to get some parking lot action going tomorrow for fun. I was lucky to find an awesome deal on the roller with a bunch of spares and options.







I really wanted lighter blue wires but this is all I had.

Well I hope I can bring this thread back for a day to answer a burning question I have...

How the heck do I get down to a 4.0 FDR without modding the gearbox?

Right now I'm running a 37 tooth pinion (which seems to be almost the limit) and a 66t spur gear. If I'm not mistaken, that's around a 4.4 FDR?

Ahhh thank you! I had no idea Robinson made gears that worked.

Can you use a smaller pinion like a 34/33 and still reach the spur?

I think you can. What FDR are you trying to achieve? You could also get the RR 60 tooth spur and play with gearing. I have both and use whatever I need for each track.

Well the local guys have been running a 4.0 fdr for the 17.5 blinky class so I'm trying to emulate that as close as possible. I just wanna be sure I can gear down if 3.7 is too much for my motor. And until now I thought 66t was the smallest 48p spur available lol I'm still picking things up as I go both for this chassis and on-road in general

I think I should get a couple of each spur so I have more options to try during the next practice day.

Love my TB03, a lot of custom parts, but kept the spirit of the TB03..

It is a beast in USGT. Running up with very competitive cars.

That looks clean man were those CF top deck bits custom?

I just picked up a new tb03 with full 418 suspension and I actually think I like this setup more than my TB03r. I'm going to test both running 17.5 with the same gearing

The entire thing is carbon Fiber

I based what I could off of the EVo3

The shocks are Yeah racing with the Tapered pistons ( Only reason i bought them ) but after shafts, orings and plastics, they are pretty much TRF. I do use the Short stack TRF springs due to the design configuration of the front now. They are much wider apart. I find this to be extremely stable on the high traction tracks.

Oh nice it's looking good haha I missed the chassis there. I think the rougher nature of my local track probably prefers the tub chassis but if I got a deal on the 3racing conversion, I'd give it a shot
