hebiki, thanks for your reply.
if i go to monster stock, do you have a suggestion on the pinion/spur gears? Also, what inserts are the hot ones? I've never built my own tires, always run premounts, but i really want to run tcs this year with my buddies. Thanks

Yeah, well at tcs in vancouver, I had the handling down, but I could have used the motor that keith had. I passed him on the infieled every lap, then he'd repass me on the straight every lap. At regionals here, I think it was sheer determination. I knew I could do it and I wanted to prove the car to everyone. As for nats. Those laps were some awesome ones, unfortunatly I couldnt get a break in qualifying to save my ass.

yeah, i have to keep tcs legal. Thanks for the tips. I am still stumped on the gearing.. I have always used the evo3 motor mount, but to run gt2 you must have a tb02 mount so that only allows for 4 different meshes. Hence why i need to know the exact spur/pinion for a monster. Thank you again =]

There are 12 options on the stock mount alone. If you take your time you can also find the fine tooth equivilents to fill in some more. I used a 78 / 40 for gt3, but thats silvercan based. It gt2 I think it was like the stock gearing, 58 tooth spur, and the 4 pinions that fit it. Depending on the track, maybe a 61 for some short tracks.

Hi guys. I just bought a tb02 coz I just got tired of replacing my tbevo spur gear evertime coz the track I play at is not as pebble free as the tracks you play at. My question is, will the motor heatsink fit without having to buy anything else and also not have to remove the functional gearcover and leave the gears exposed again? I've heard that not all tbevo3 parts are a direct fit on tbo2 so I ask. Btw, the pic shows a silver motorheatsink but the shop has a dark gray heatsink. Whats' the diff? Tnx.

Default TT01 as entry level car

I started with a TT01 and it was very durable with one notable exception. The steering knuckles break constantly. We went through six in one enduro race. I see the TL01 as a much more durable wall wacker car. My son and his cousin are both currently running TT01's and I dread them hitting anything (they are very skilled at hitting other cars, walls, corner marshalls and even the ocassional pit table). You can't find the knuckles anywhere in my area so if they break one they are toast. If you do get a TT01 find and purchase extra steering knuckles. Oh and I agree with Fred, the Tb02 is very competative with the right driver.
