I`ve heard it can fit a TA05 and a TB Evo 5.
Is this the one from the TB02R; if so its got "TB-02R" printed on it
which may be a good or bad thing depending on your usage.

thanks
no its not drop-in interchangeable

you'll also need:-

-eIII CF top plate
-eIII motor mount
-eIII steering posts & arms (not 100% same as TB02 hopup)
-alloy hingepin mounts x4 & balls
-eIII bumper plastics
-plastic top plate standoff (unused in TB02 kit)
-battery holder bits (unused in TB02 kit?)


Probably cheaper to get a whole used eIII these days.

I was geared at 58/21 on my TB02R with a CO27 stock motor, but I just dropped in the 13.5 SS novak brushless. Weird thing is, novak doesnt have a "gearing chart" for that motor. Any of you guys run a 58/21 on the 13.5 safely? I'd hate to burn it up on its first outing.

That is about where I geared my CO27 at our local track (7.15 FDR). When they started running 13.5's w\ sintered rotors they were geared down to 4.5 to 4.8 FDR (yes, 4.5 to 4.8, not a typo). Thing makes a TON of torque, so you need to gear it for that.

well, did some modifiying of the plastic motor mount and managed to get a 72T spur (64pitch) in there with the 37T pinion for a 5.01 ratio. Ran it for a minute or so (its cool outside right now) and the motor was already up to 160 degrees(temp gun). NO WAY those guys could be running that 4.6-4.8 ratios without burning up the motor. It does have WICKED speed though...but almost no brakes. Talk about having to get used to a different feel of motor.

Do you have a sintered rotor? These were guys running the 13.5 class at the Novak race at trackside. I saw their cars, 88ish sized spur and 40 tooth pinions. You cannot use this gearing with the non sintered rotor.

You could try using the F201 speed tuned gear set, its a 52 tooth spur and you can get tamiya pinions upto 27T

Geez, I'm just trying to help here.. The Novak race is a NATIONAL event, with the top team drivers present (XRAY, AE, etc). They had a special 13.5 class, and many locals were preparing weeks before to get their setups dialed in. I saw their cars (aint no plastic Tamiya TCS cars running at this level), I know them, and know what gearing they were running. Search the forums, I'm sure the gearing was posted.

If you look at my original post, you will see I said that gearing w\ sintered rotor. I'd mention a gearing for the non-sintered setup, but I'm guessing I'll just get more flack.

sorry g12314, didnt mean to chew you out like that...I just get a bit annoyed when I cant figure out stuff like gearing. IF novak had supplied a chart for the 13.5, It would have been nice. Anyway, I tried the 88/40 gearing on it and it was awesome! Its so smoooth, its such a shame I cant get the 02R to handle like it used to....still spins out in certain curves.

Hey Juan Aveytia, thanks for the setup you gave me, but I'm guessing its for a smooth flowing track... I kept overshooting the switchbacks, but it did give me more onpower steering.
