This would constitute modification of the car, so it would be illegal. Could you get away with it? Probably, but I'd hate to be dq'ed for it.

Default Tsc legal

It might be a loophole. Now if the screw came that way(other manuf. screws are allowed) it would be legal.

So is anyone running 64 pitch gears on their TB-02 or is everyone just running the 48 pitch.

I was thinking the same thing but I figure someone might have tried it and had it match up correctly. I guess I will try it later on this weekend to see iif it fits and if I can get the gearing I want.

Just have to wait for a more adjustable motor mount.

Kevin, do you guys have the chassis(TB-02)? I just got a 415 for gt1 and need to start getting the GT-2,3 chassis going.

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
Thanks Larry,

Surprised I did not find that on the website.....

Any shop that deals with Tamiya or a distributor that carries Tamiya stuff should be able to get that stuff for you.

How much did it cost you for those 3 parts? Is that ALL I need?

51045 TB-02 M Parts
53678 alloy steering set

Is this all?
