Default Front one way gear issue

One design change from the EVO 3 to the TB02 that I thought would be benificial to the one way stripping problem is how the front plastic that holds the bumper from the top is now directly screwed to the plastic that holds the front sway bars which is attached to the front bulkheads. I'm just not sure if it is a good thing or bad thing because now. I would Imagine if you hit something it will directly affect the front bulkhead. Also, the new TB-02 foam bumper has a cut out that I thought made it weaker compared to the evo 3 front bumper.

That could be a problem if you do take a big hit in the front end. I really want to see one built and get a good look at it instead of pictures so then I will see if I want one for sure or not. Might have to stick to my bullet proof TA03R-S and patiently wait til they make a car for TCS that I really like as I still get by with my 03R-S

Default DESIGN'S

I design change that i have noticed. also i'm not sure if it is a good or bad is the orginal tb-02 pinion gears on the shaft are quite loose. and if you shim the bevels correctly the bevels shouldn't move in a crash only the shaft will move. I believe they are loose due to the material tamiya used on these.

I've been running my tb-02 since December and beside not being able to gear it as i would like to. is performance is quite close to the Evo 3.......

I thing i have notice is that motors get a lot hotter in the tub compared to the evo 3

I know my TA03R and my TB-01 are motor heaters.

I know this may have been asked earlier in this thread....

Can the TB02 spur gear be converted to regular 64-pitch gearing?

Suradaj, the TB02 comes with a plastic spur gear adapter, you can also use the aluminum version from the EVO3. So Yes you can use any spur. The only small draw back is that the motor mount only allows for preset motor and gearing. IE the motor doesn't have infinate adjustability. the mounting screws go through holes not a slot.

DZ. I almost made a mistake when I built my TB02. make sure that the pin in the driveline in in the correct hole for the spur gear. It is pretty sloppy if it is in the wrong hole.

hi guys, do you have some setup tips for the tb-02 to handle well on a low to medium bite asphalt track (medium size combination of technical and fast).

The box set-up wasn't bad. Lengthen the upper arms, and possibly stand the rear shocks up. But that was with a silver can motor.

Pugo1, Pards! musta ang pasig riber!
The TB02 is very new but a good source would be the EVO 3 forum. set-ups should be similar.

Exclamation

well no one has read the tb-02 box, The box quotes: Compatible parts: TB Evolution III and TA 04 option parts plus a wide range of racing tyres. So those arms are legal . The bumper being attached to the gear box is not all bad as i have raced it and not heard any weird noise from the front gear box so i think i can safely say the gears have not striped.
