What do you mean by adjusting the wheelbase?

Holy Sh** !!!!

You had to say that. A friend and a cheap Holden car $200 aus,

with a mod motor and the Tmaiya Radial tyers. it was the best thing out there. They were the ones that i was going to get. But I don't know weather this will fix my understeer problem. I can only wait till the next meet and find out.

The suspension pins have some spacers... find the shortest setting by taking out the spacers to move the arms inward (towards center of car); don't forget to put the spacers towards the end ot the pins. This will in effect shorten the distance from the front axle to the rear and make the car more nimble (equals to more steering.) My car is currently setup with the lowest setting...

Default Gearing

I have found a chart which lists all the available gearing for the TB02, it is attached and a TB02 can go down to 4.11 if you try using tamiya parts

Whoaa... you guys are crazy indeed! Heck, I'll go further and attach the motor to the tires themselves! for a 1:1 ratio or is it 1:0

This was done buy someone who was just starting to look at this issue, and didn't realize these gears don't exist! I brought it up with him when he made it earlier this year.

I think the spur I found to work best was the 78t

RRP4178

I also used 81T and 85T spurs.

Good luck.

Does anyone know if aluminum, plastic or delrin ball studs are avaliable to replace the incrediably heavy stock parts?

Have any of you guys lowered the steering servo? I'm going to cut down my servo mounts alot to lower it.

Also how free are your drive trains? I was really dissapionted in how ineffecient mine was.

I just got a new Enzo body and an HKS Altezza body to paint up so my TB02 should stay pretty with some more variety over my Xanavi Skyline.
