The plastic TB-02 battery strap and the carbon Evo III battery straps are NOT the same length. I have both and they are NOT interchangeable. Not sure why.

Default Diff issue

Can someone please tell me whats the secret is to a smooth TB-02 diff? I don't run a TB-02 but offered to help a buddy build his diffs and see whats wrong with them cause they are very very tight. I took them apart and cleaned it all out and built it again my way. I fiddled with shimming and such but no luck. It's a lot better but nothing compared to diffs out of my cars. I can't get it BUTTER smooth and not slip(every diff out of every car I had is like that). New plates and ceramic balls, white LW outdrives?

Center of hole to center of hole, the TB-02 is maybe 4.8" or longer, the Evo 3 is 4.7". Sorry, not good with the metric system.

I read somewhere on a LiPo forum (probably the Orion Top Talk forum) that team drivers still prefered to use tape instead of the graphite battery plate because the plate makes that side of the chassis stiffer than the other side and makes the chassis behave like it's tweaked. I don't know much about these things. It's just what I read. But if it is true, maybe the soft plastic battery brace might have an advantage over the graphite one.

As I believe the EVO3 was created when the set dimensions for the batteries were 1mm per cell smaller than the 3800/4200/4300 era, yet the TB02 took this into account.

The EVO3 in order for them to fit required you to shave part of the post holding the brace in order for these newer cells to fit.

Hey Hawk6 and ford_racing; Thanks for the info.

I`m tired of the Carbon Battery Plate Stuff. I might have to Wait until Tamiya Makes a Battery Plate for the TB Evo 5.....I doupt it; because it comes with a Plastic Plate that says Tamiya on it.....(to them it`s a Keeper).

Thanks

Take Care

yep, the molded TB02 kit outdrives I can never get smooth, always notchy.

Big improvement going to either the black EvoIII or white EvoIIIse outdrives.
The black ones don't seem to chip/crack/break as easy as the white one,
usually slightly cheaper too.

not everyone uses ladder packs

Some clubs' race standards require stick packs which are commercially built.

Some of these stick packs come with big end caps which add to the length,
damned hard to fit into my EvoIIIs but are simple to drop-in for my TB02.
Trinity stickpacks are a hard fit in the EvoIII (yep even after shaving posts)
and their endcaps aren't excessive.
