But I have never tried either, so I could be wrong.
Because it was so long ago I did the change I could not remember which part box I got the diff from. After some research tonight I did figure out that it was a Rear diff from the 415.

Hello,
After doing some thinking, I am going to keep my TB02's. Does anyone have a good starting point for a carpet setup for the TB02?
Thank you
Dave

Dave,

I'll check to see if I ever wrote down my TCS setup for the TB02R. If not, I'm sure I can come up with a starting point to try.

Hello Jimmy!
I am going to run the car in RCGT this fall along with my 007's. I was going to sell them but no interest so I am keeping them.

Are there aluminum ball diffs or at least the out drives that will work in the TB-02? Mine are about to go. Thank you

Default TB-02.. Still usable for a newb to racing?

Hello,

I have my TB-02 that I built a few years ago, and never ran it much (got into a couple of other hobbies for a while)..

Now I'd like to try racing- I'm excited about silver can racing. Is the TB-02 usable in this manner? Does it fit into any TCS racing still? Do clubs still have "silver can"/Mabuchi racing, and if so and I were to use a TB-02, would I need all the diff upgrade stuff people talk about? Or are the stock diffs OK for silver can?

I'm in Maryland- near Baltimore. Anyone know of any electric racing around here?

Thanks

Hi there,

Does anyone know if there's a spool available for the TB-02? Or does the one for the TB-03 fit as well?

Thanks in advance.

Very easy to make a spool for the TB02. You can use a TB02 diff and get the Associated diff slipper pads. Replace the steel tamiya rings and take the balls out of the diff. Then you just put the diff back together like you normally would. You just need to reem the slipper pad hole to fit better on the TB02 diff. and then tighten the diff screw and you now have a spool. Works great on my TB EVO III SE.

Just to check if the TB03 spool fits the 02. Cause I saw the item readily available.

Default Finally...

I might just start putting my TB-02 together.

I want run TCS here in Southern California. What are the min hop ups that you would run with this car for GT-3?

Trying to keep it budget minded, basic ESC nothing fancy and maybe a Lipo so I don't have to worry about matched cell nonsense.

Open to suggestions, thanks

Default TB-02 conversion

Starting off I am not all that familiar with Tamiya on road cars. My buddy was given a TB-02 subaru and he is trying go VTA racing with this chassis. Its brand new, and to me it looks very similar in design to a Assoc. tc3-4 and should work fine but the first problem we are running into is gearing. We want to run a brushless motor and at our local track im seeing various cars with a FINAL drive ratio ranging from 3.8-3.3 when running 1cell lipo & 17.5 brushless. Unless im reading the manual wrong the closest we can get is 5.72 or around that. I have seen a TB-02 to TB-03 conversion kit for 90 bucks is this what im looking for? It looks like the motor mount in that kit is the slideing adjust type. Can i switch to 64 pitch gearing with that? Can this car be converted with out spending a fortune? Ive seen the 415 cars and they look bad a-- but $400+ is not an option right now. Thanks for any help.
