Default Loose front dogbones

I am fairly new to RC cars - so be gentle. I recently picked up a TB-02 (Subaru Impreza) to setup as a rally car/parking lot basher (no racing). I had a lot of fun putting it together (much nicer than the TT-01's that I put together for my son's ). I currently have the suspension setup for max clearance (I am still debating on whether or not to dremel a little bit of the tub under the A arms for additional travel - the first cut is the hardest). As it stands right now - the dogbones are too loose. The front's pop out when I turn. I know that I can pick up a swing shaft, but I am afraid that I still may have problems. My question is, should I look to pickup a longer set of swing shafts than these?

Will I have problems where the swing shaft meets the outdrive?

Make sure you have the foam spacers in the diff halves so the dogbones don't come out. If you do decide to get the universals....42mm is what you are looking for.

I don't recall putting any foam spacers in - I must have missed that step in my excitement. I'll try that first and see if it helps.

The stock dogbones are 42x6 mm correct? I can try to pick up some longer dogbones at the LHS if the spacers don't resolve the problem (keep in mind I have extra travel).

Thanks!

By the way - I just ordered an additional TB-02 for my son's birthday. Porsche Carrera GT for only $70.

Foam spacers should fix your problem...and 46mm is the correct length.


Just got back from TCS at Trackside in WI. Ran my TB-02 in GT-2 and finished 3rd in the B-main out of four mains. It was hooked up...but it's the last TCS it will be run in. Ran my friends TA-05 and it's much smoother and easier to drive for 13.5.

Also ran in the "rally" class....TQ'd and won the A-main! Great weekend overall.

They do not use the same spur gear...and I am not aware of any adapter to put a normal spur gear on a TB-02. Use Robinson Racing pinion gears(metric 48p) with your tamiya cars...last longer and runs smoother too.

If you guys really wanna race forget setting a TB-02 and buy a TA-05. Why do you think the TB-02 keeps going on sale for cheaper and cheaper!

Default TB02 Spool!

Hy there!

Last training session with my Evo5 i run a spool on carpet for the first time. For usual i run the oneway, but with it the car was a nearly perfect ride!!!

Now i plan to build also a spool instead of the oneway for my good old boys TB02 and TB02R.

I thought it this way.:

I take the kit diff (blak plastic), and build it the following way.

without the balls, diff plates, trust and norma lbearings, spring.
Instead the balls there come a sandpaper cuttet the same way as the plates, and the bronze bearings. when i screwed it together, i drill two 3mm holes through the outdrive, the ring gear and the secon outdrive (when i have luck, i drill trough a hole for the balls) and the fix it with a grub screw to secure it from open up.

The outdrives i tape with fiber glass tape to make them more durable. I think that will work.

What did you think, or have anyone a better (cheaper) way?

Greetings form Austria,

Blueman
