EvoUK - id use the one that came with the kit. its not flat like the evo3 strap. its the same strap that yokomo SD uses. its shaped to fit the curves of a side by side back. holds the batteries more firmly.

(might be a fun project )
madjack hehe i guess ill be the first one to try it then. its not TCS legal then huh if you omit the front and rear plastic covers and just use the upper deck.

Maybe thats why i was wondering, becasue i use side by side cells and if it holds them down better then it might be worth concidering?

wow....while y'all are blingin' the tb-02 out to race onroad...I'm over here thinking of a replacement for the tb-01 rally racer.
we now have a car that has racebred suspension and a plastic tub and covered spur gear ....NOW if it only had a dust cover like the tb-01 and that nice WRX 2003 body....YEAAAAHHHH baby!

Bet rally would get a nice kick in the pants...

besides, who'd be nuts enough to use a surikarn evo3 at the park with your buddies and race around all over the place....

Thumbs up TB02 test at Tamiya America

I ran my "EVOed" TB today at Tamiya America

The set-up was the same as my EVO. Overall it worked very well with a 24 Monster. Very quick off the corners, plenty of steering at low speed and off power...the only improvement might be a bit more steering in the sweeper.

So far so good

madjack,

I was looking at Fred's car all day long, and I think I will join in on the Tamiya fun with my own TB-02 next week.

Also, I'm working on a Ti-Screw kit for the TB-02 right now.

Hi Izzy,

Aluminum are light weight, but titanium aren't that much heavier. In fact, if you have good grade titanium, they should be similar in weight to aluminum. The strength is key to Titanium, and because a lot of the screws are going into ABS plastci or nylon plastic parts on tamiya cars, Titanium would be a better way to go. The reason being, the plastic and nylon parts will provide a lot of resistence during installation of the screws and if they are aluminum screws, there will be more of a tendancy for them to strip or even just snap off.

I got the screws all calculated out (a total of 89 screws) and I believe we can have them available for around $40.

Steve,

I would have enjoyed staying...but had to knock out the "honey do list" before Christmas.

Glad to hear your back...it was just a matter of time.

i also ran my Surikarn'ed - TB-02 that Rod called the BLING Car. it ran great. transplanted my surikarn set up right into the TB-02.

really happy with it and i had fred inspect the car, he said its completely TCS legal.

during most of sat practice, i was trying to chase gtypecanare all day, that was fun

more fun next sat if im not on the slopes snowboarding.

I'll guess the TB will be "the one" in TCS GT2 without a doubt.

I was concerned with the TB's weight vs. the 04, bit the drive train & suspension geometry seem to make up for that issue.

I plan on making a couple of changes before next Sat.(possible spring rate increase) to make up for that soft chassis...but overall it was pretty quick for the maiden voyage!

I'm also putting together my TB02. But I'm setting it up as a short wheel base. So far so good. I'll prepare it for Saturday at TA

hmmm...lots of talk of setups, I want to try a new one... I havent messed with my evo3 in a while....anyone have a good one for front diff equipped? I guess I could lock my front diff and tryout a spool setup. I run rubber tires, outdoors with bumpy tight asphalth track, 90ft straight.(not surikarn edition)

As it stands, I'm running this setup...handles nice for me, but inner part of tires seems to wearing more and car almost stops in the corners to rotate...pushes on power...I know it can go faster, I'm guessing its my setup.

Front copper springs, 1.5 camber, 0toe, shocks outterholes
AA blocks, no spacers, yellow sway. 50wt, top inner
camber hole on tower, 2mm spacer in wheels
Rear assoc. red springs, 1.5 camber, AB blocks, shocks 4th hole
yellow sway, 50wt, no spacers, top inner camber hole on
tower. 2mm spacer in wheels.
elects futaba servo S9+, LRP quantum comp., 2400's, p2k2
geared 72/30. switched to monster @72/26, but havent
tried it yet.

Aluma soften the front rate way to stiff for balance. Stand up the rear shocks 2 holes lower the front 1 hole. Put 2 mm spacing under the rear blocks . Start there you should like the differences in feel If the track is bumpy as you say run 4mm front droop and 3 rear

Front spring rate should be 1 stiffer that the rear after that you start getting balance problems. I usually run the same at all foru corners
