I can't argue that. Man we're getting old aren't we.

Sorry, stupid question coming from a TB-02 owner. My TB-02 already has quite a bit of EVO III hop ups already and I do race in competition with her. I just recently cracked my chassis and I saw someone running a TB-02 with the EVO III graphite chassis, but I didn't get to talk to him that day. Here are some pics of the car..

oops sorry you will need a bearing and a motor mount, and maybe steering posts. been so long I can't remember.
I know the steering parts on the EVO are different from the TB02 but I think the TB02 steering will work on the EVO

you need the motor mount from the EVO, and I think the alum steering from the TB02 will work, but just to remember there is about a 10% chance that it might not.

http://www.tamiya.com/japan/rc/rcman...o3surikarn.pdf

here is a link to the EVO manual, you might want to look into step 5
it is the steering parts, you might want the carbon fiber steering arm plate
step 11 has the motor mount and the specific bearing you need to convert. Also there is the alum spur gear mount & carbon spur holder too if you are interested.

hello , i just got a TB-02 and found that the diff joints are plastic...

i read that evo 3 (and evo 4 too??) diffs works on tb-02 , but i would like to know if evo 3/4 diff joints have the slot wide so you can put swing shaft protectors to the end of the bone like in the evo5

thanks

I've never seen a black one (the diff halves that came with the original Evo3) with my own eyes...but I have the white ones and they're made of delrin (which is glassfiber-reinforced nylon), which is supposed to be stiffer than whatever plastic the black diff halves are molded from.

And unfortunately, the slot for the pins are too narrow to allow the use the swingshaft protectors. I don't think Tamiya ever released a set of diff halves that allows you to do that...although I know that Tech Racing (and maybe some other companies) made aluminum diff halves for the Evo4 (which will fit on the TB-02). The delrin ones (the white diffs) are durable enough for most kinds of racing anyways. I've had my set for almost three years and there's barely any wear on it (racing mostly 27T stock though).
