28 sorex are great carpet tires and they are low temp tires far as outdoor race in the philippines I would go for the 40 sorex..
28 sorex are very soft rubber compound tires

For you guys running the SS arm setup on your TB-02 what are you using for rear dog bones? I ran the stock setup and plan on using swing shafts. The extreme angle from the bones to the diff really stress the diff outdrives and I actually had one break and I didn't hit a thing.

I did not find any breaking problems, I did have a bending issue of the front hinge pin. I am hoping that the true kit for the tb, ta cars will have a different arm. Maybe some wider mounting. I currently have 12mm of addjustment for the wheelbase. This puts an extreme strain on the pin when you hit walls.

I am working on the old arm, and new uprights, have not tested yet. I am also waiting to see whats different from the 415 conversion kit.

I was as Speedtech the other day and they have the kit for the TB-02. I think the only difference is that the TB kit comes with 42mm dogbones, instead of 46mm.

Steve has them for $79.

kevin... i picked up the TB-02/TA04 conversion kit. nothing special. just 42mm dogbones like Joe said. here's the kicker. if you use the conversion, you need to pick up 46mm dogbones.

you are right on the hinge pins. i have 3 - 3mm and 1 - 2mm shim on there. thats front and back. with that much room for adjustment, you can shorten the wheelbase to "SS" length.

You're joking...LOL...

You have to get the 46mm bones just to use the arms? Since you're the resident Tamiya expert now...any clue why?

Why not just use the other kit?

I think those would work for the ta04.

So I'm thinking of putting the AE blue anodized threaded shocks on my TB-02, anyone seen AE shocks on a Tamiya tourer before. I'm assuming the length would be about right. I've got tons of AE parts, and these shocks are quite a bit cheaper than the Tamiya ones. Plus I'm thinking I can get rid of some of those ultra heavy ball studs that come stock on the car! Anyone know if you can get delrin ones, or aluminum?

Yep, Asso's will fit.

For Delrin or Allu, look at Trinity, i think they have them for the off-roaders. They should fit.
