Nope, did not sign up. I will be concentrating on the Reedy DVD 04. Hopefully we can do it better for this year.

Ok, maybe I should have rephrased that...

You and I agree on something on the TB-02, better, lol

If you build it right, there will be no slop. You need to install the two inner spring clips so they butt up against one side of the servo horn and the outer spring clip so it butts up with the other side. If you do this, you will not have any slop. That's a pretty important detail to leave out of the instruction, but that's the secret.

Okay....

I ended up with a Evo III SL....e-bay totally owns for this kind of stuff

Now I'm just in the process of waiting for the car & I ordered a few parts from Speedtech last night. Gotta build up a ball diff for it now Does Sheldon's, Hobbyworld(s) or Hobbytown carry the diff bevel gear. Maybe I'll try and wedge the TC3 bevel in there....

Gary: How many teeth does the diff's bevel gear have?

Psycho: I'll get a 540 in there and run with you if I ever get a ball diff together for the car, or else its going strait back to the touring car market....Where do you run? I can't get down to Newark on the 1st but I'll be at the next Sheldon's race and (hopefully) the next Hobbytown race

yep!

I also tie a small cabletie loosely around the whole spring, but
not too tight as it'll limit the servosaver's function too much.

In a bad smack the cabletie will break.

The car you're getting doesn't have a diff in back, or you are replacing the front one-way with a diff? Let me know if you want to part with the one-way, I actually need another one.

Are you planning on getting the Tub and all the other parts to convert that car to a TB-02? That's the smart way to do it, cheaper too. I ended up picking up a standard Evo 3, so I still need a few hop ups (mostly the upper camber mounts) but it still saved me some major coin versus buying the kit and all the hop ups.

Oh, and don't ruin a new car by trying to cram a tc3 gearset in there. it won't work without changing the pinion gear at the end of the shaft to.

I should have an extra bevel gear. It'll cost you a wave-by, though.

I race at H-town, Sheldons and RCCAR. Ocasionally, I race at Gilroy and I usually race at Stockton in the winter.

I can never get to H-town...I have plans to in a month or so
Getting to Gilroy once or twice a month
I might eventually get to R/C Car when they race at Speedring on Sundays
Sheldons = All of them!

I think I'm getting some with the car though....its a small picture but I'm either getting 6 diff gears or 6 one-way gears (in that case, I'm going to be extremely PO'ed)

Gary: The front one-way bearings/outdrives have already been called tibs on by my dad If that changes I'll know who to talk too
