Default EVOIII conversion

Does any one know if any of the chassis pieces from the EVO III will fit the TB-02 (including the base chassis plate, top plate, etc.)
I know that some hop up parts will fit along with the carbon shock towers...but what about the other carbon plate pieces?

I'm looking at this deal from www.ballistichobbies.com and they have the color graphite kits for the EVOIII and 414. I would like to know if you can adapt the EVOIII chassis to the TB-O2 since that's where it basically came from?

Please HELP!!!

from what I have read and have seen, all the EVO 3 parts will work on the TB-02 except for the motor mount and the steering rack.

if you go back a few pages on this thread. i slapped on my surikarn evoIII on my TB-02 chassis. i used the TB-02 steering rack and the motor mount. everything else transferred over smoothly. (upper deck also cannot be used.)

from what i hear, use the TB-02 or lightweight shaft, the 2mm difference in length makes a big difference.

Thanks for the replies....So lemme get this straight, I can basically change over my TB-02 into an EVOIII with the exception of the upper deck and the motor mount.
Does this also mean that I can use the lower carbon plate chassis used on the EVO III?

It wouldn't be a TB02 any more if you use the Evo lower carbon deck. People that are doing the Evo conversion are mostly interested in keeping the car TCS legal for GT2 or GT3.

Post drive shaft lengths?

Has anyone compared the lengths of the drive shafts?

The EVO shaft vs. the new light weight shaft.

As you have may have guessed the reason for the question is of course is trying to find a solution for my TB eating the front crown gear. I heard a rumor that the new shaft might be a couple of MM's longer on the front side?

Sorry if this items has been previously covered in this forum...

Madjack... not sure if Hebiki is telling the truth, but I'll take his word for it... hehehe! 2mm is indeed a big difference... Now, Hebiki... where's that shaft I ordered...

Chris is right. I compared the shafts from my standard Evo and the one in the box with the TB-02, and the 02 shaft is a few MM's longer. I'm keeping the red shaft in the surikarn right now, I have only stripped out one set of gears so I am not that worried about it. Knock on wood.

Thumbs up How long is your SHAFT?

(I posted this on the "other" thread... but thought this is appropriate here as well...)

Okay, so the subject didn't sound right... hehe

But for those of you interested to see the length difference between the new lightweight shaft and the regular one, here it is! Up close and personal... I know, I know... I've got too much time in my hands... but hopefully this can help you guys decide on whether you need this part. I am just speculating right now, but I do think this will help reduce stripping the one way gear. We'll be doing some race testing this coming Sunday and hopefully my gear stripping will be reduced to "none"... can't wait!
