bugger... BROKE the diff screw in the TB02 drifter today.

I think the molding of the diff plastic (tight-loose-tight-loose) flexes the screw and fatigued it.

All my EvoIIIs & TA04S use the same screw and none have broken it ever, so why TB02 if not for that??

After winning the Laurel gt3 class with my tao3r I've finally gotten my long awaited tbo2 so I could retire my old ride. I'm not sure though. It will probably be a while before I build it but I have to say the only beef I have with it is the limited gearing motor mount. Wyd you were very impressive in the gt2 class. I am assuming you used 48 pitch gears? Can this car be competitive in all gt classes using only 64 pitch gearing?

NCC, you really can't use 64 or 48 pitch gears in the TB. You have to mickey-Mouse with the motor spacing to try to get a mesh figured out, plus getting a spur that small is a royal pain in the butt. It's funny you don't like the fixed gearing, isn't that what the 03 had?

NCC the gearing for GT2 and GT1 are not a problem with the TB-02. Gt3 might be a different story, but I have not really tried that either so I can't be sure.

The car was on rails and was very easy to drive. Had a great day at the TCS.

The gearing on the 03 is actually better as you can use the metric 64 spur and then gearing is very open. I have the Tamiya pinions 20 to 29 and then I used the normal 64 pitch gears (non metric) to get anything I needed above that with no problems and no additional noise in the gearing. I think the 03 is better for gearing than my TB-02 but I don't have as many suspension options on the 03 as far as shock towers and a arms so that hurts me more than the limited gearing on the TB-02.

Can't you guys just take a dremel to the holes and make it an adjustable mount?

that would be deemed illegal. these cars are being used for TCS.

It would be illegal but then you still have no way to to adjust the motor as you would still have to dremel out the back of the chassis and that would also be illegal. To bad they didn't make it with an adjustable motor mount, carbon fiber tub chassis with low sides ( kinda like the 04) because then the car would be even better than it already is.

i agree... a nice tub of the same material as the 04R, and an aluminum adjustable mount would finish it off nicely, and make for an excellent car.

wonder how it would do with the new LW suspension...?

im sure tamiya has that in the works already. my guess would be, they're testing out the waters with the car. if the sales are good, then they'll come out the aforementioned tub, adjustable motor mount, etc. then we'll have the TB-02R, then TB-02Pro, TB-02SS oh we already have this one!

is there any available steel outdrive and diff gears for the TB02? I'm plan to use a TB02 for offroad rally, the course includes jumps designed for Trucks and buggies.

Thanks for the response. I run 64 pitch on my o3 and I can get any gearing I want for all three classes by only changing the pinions.
Wyd I agree with you that tuning options out weighs gearing only options. I'm anxiously awaiting the graphite tub.
