Never had an EVO3 before. My setup ran kinda like having a one way in. If you left off more than 1/2 throttle coming into a turn it would unload just like when using a one way. I had a buddy using my same setup and it was a little too much steering for him. I also think the fact the car only has 1 degree of rear toe in on each side also lets the car rotate alot in the corners. We are going to use the EVO B rear block on my buddies next time he runs the car.

Setup is like this. 55 wt oil 2 hole teflon piston in the front with the hard blue tamiay springs. I run the Surikan front tower with the shocks in the inner most hole. I run the camber links stock as just like the stock TB kit shows. I also used the yellow front sway bar. I also raised the front roll center 1.5mm.

The rear I have 50wt oil 2 hole teflon Tamiya piston with the Tamiya hard yellow rear spring. I use the Surikan rear showck tower with the shocks mounted all the way in on the tower. I use the stock TB camber link setup as shown in the book. I raised the roll center up 1mm and used the red swaybar.

Tires I use the Tamiya Type A with the HPI med/soft orange insert. I also spaced out the rear tires 1mm with those Tamiya spacers they give you for the front of the car.

The car really steers hard at least in GT2. I run the new Nissan Xanavi body.

When you say you raised the roll centres are you placing the spacers under the inner point on the camber link or under the toe in blocks..

I am thinking of converting my EvoIII to a GT2 car for an up in coming TCS race and using my 415 for GT1. What parts and part numbers would I need to make the translation? I am guessing a Tub. From what I gather I would need an upper deck & motor mount? I don't own a TB02 manual so part numbers would be helpful since the Tamiya site is not updated with information. What is the part ## of the 58t 06 spur?

Thanks for the info...

Coop.

Under the Toe In blocks. The Camber links are setup just like the stock directions show.

Did anyone use 64 pitch gears on their TB-02 tub chassis setup yet?

Are you using the Surikan 64 pitch spur gears and the Surikan spur gear holder? I want to use 64 pitch but with the stupid motor mount you have to use on the TB-02 it kinda makes it hard

I had tried a robinson 60 tooth, but the spur was so thin that with a mabuchi (and the slop of the arm going in and out of the can) the spur went bye bye.

I guess you are now just running the metric 48 pitch gears now? I didn't have a problem with the stock gears but with 64 pitch I can change the pinion and not have such a jump in my gearing

Default more adjustment

I wonder if this was mentioned before but has anyone tried grinding a small part of the threads off the motor screw to get a small bit of adjustment. Just the section that passes thru the motor mount. I think that would be a legal for TCS.

not running anything actually. The car has sat since the Trackside TCS. I may get it going in a few weeks and get it ready for outdoor season. I would like to know though soon what the GT2/3 class for nationals will be, and what motor will be used...

coop,

I beleive you will need the TB02 motor mount, the TB02 steering rack, the TB02 stabilizer set, the tub, the carbon stiffener plate and the gearbox covers (N parts).

If you go to the Tamiya website you can print up the parts list for the TB02 cars in the support area. I will save you the steps. here is the link to the parts list http://www.tamiyausa.com/pdf/58310_parts.pdf

It lists all the part numbers and hop ups.

Good Luck
