Gary, I figured out the binding problem, now she spins like a TC3. I still believe the torque rods should be left off, though, even on carpet, IMHO.

Izzy, have you ran the TB02 with the standard rear arms? If so, how does it compare to the ss arms? Are you and Gary in disagreement because it is worthwhile to allow the arms, or are you guys fighting just to be fighting? Some people just like to argue (Gary).

I'm all for moving on and concentrating on TB02 discussion, not rule discussions. Anyone else?

Tommy
Nobody is fighting here... we all know were all tuff because we are still in the confinement of our private homes. Lets see how you react when we are face to face, we all be so very nice to each other. Gary mentioned somewhere in this thread that he likes a good discussion and I'm just giving him what he wants. The TB02SS setup has some advantage on tight tracks since it can come around turns better. Can it win over the standard setup? Depends whos driving! Gary you better let me know who you are so that I can KICK YOUR ASS! (bipolar)

whether its an advantage or disadvantage to me is a moot point. They rules state X, yet Y is being allowed, and Z, which is very similar to Y is being disallowed.

I was out there for Nationals, and I will be there again this year, and I may be there for the Reedy race. I was the guy with the Cheeze Wiz GT2 car.

Shouldn't you be at the Newark TCS today, or is that next weekend?

Tommy, I am going through mine right now to free everything up. There's grease smeared all over the ring and pinion gears, and the rear arms need to be shaved so the hub carriers don't bind up. I may try it Tuesday, otherwise a week from tuesday. I still need to get a servo for it, and I am debating whether to pull my HRS KO receiver out of my T4 and put it in the Surikarn, or just buy a new one, plus I need to mount the Hara Speedo in it too. A lot of work still to be done.

Roger that. To free up the drive, I took the diffs out, cleaned the Tamiya ceramic grease off of them, applied Crest toothpaste to them, yes, I said toothpaste, and then re-assembled everything. I installed the included Mabuchi, and ran it with the T35 on 3 volts for about 30 mins. Cleaned it all up and re-lubed and it worked. Nice and free. I had to shave .015" off the forward hole on the rear arms to get the hub to rotate freely.

Let me know how it works out. I assume you will be trying it at Trackside? Thanks,

Tommy Dale

That's next week. Tentative plans are to leave Saturday and race next day. It's more looking like a suicide deal so I am thinking twice about it now. Will see.

Drove the TB02 with a oneway this past Sunday, it striped. Monster motor with a gear ratio of 7.5X.

Put the ball diff back in, still fast but I like the one way.

Thanks for letting us know. I was going to do that but the fear of stripping was preventing me to do so and now it has been confirmed.

Ok, back to your comment on the diff spring. It is ground, just not that flat. I can however tell you that the stock plastic out drives are not as strong as the white plastic for the EVOIII(S). I have broken one side in the front, and a friend broke the other side. When I replaced it, I used the white for the Evo. This made the diff action much smoooooooother. All of the TB02 cars that I have looked at, the diffs seem lumpy, I thought it was the spring also, untill I tried the other diff halves.

I use the EVO III diff out drives, they are better then the stock ones. The molds on the TB02 are not good.

In my kit, both springs were bare on both ends. The wire came to an abrupt stop at either end with no grinding. It is all academic now, however, as I have the evo outdrives on the way. Glad to hear the the Evo outdrives solve the problem, hard to get a car to run well with notchy diffs.

Hey Guys!I just traded the kit I won from winning my main at the newark TCS for suradaj's TB02{thanks Joey!}The car was involved in a major reck and the Chassis was cracked at the rear arm mount.Has this happened to anyone else yet? I figured it shouldnt cost a bundle to replace and for the kit tamiya gave to me{TT01-eek!),I made out like a bandit considering all the hop ups and evo3 stuff thats on the car.

When will the chassis be available by itself? Thanks!
