Kevin,

Thanks so much-I just rebuilt the whole car before getting back on line and after reading your post-I actually only have to chnage few things-which I will do right now.

Thanks again,
Ray

Default Front bumper upgrade

Hey guys,

Now for a little help the other way!! I retrofitted with very little modification a rubberneck foam bumper (These are being sold for the Mi2, Xray, TC3 and TC4 and are a front suspension saver!!) on my tb02 as the stock foam bumper is useless. Rubber necks foma is super high density and easy to dremel and shape with a x-acto blade.

I used the bumper made for the Corally RDX. Its shape is deadnuts the same as the tb02 one on the car. I just needed to dremel new holes for the 3 posts and shave a bit off the top so the top and bottom bumper plates could connect when tightened. I'll post a pic soon. Looks totally factory.

Ray

The TB02 is definately getting better after putting Kevin's set-up on it. Thank you!! It rotates 180 different than my foam tire cars-so I dont know if its good or bad. But it doesnt barrell rolll or seem ill tempered anymore

I think it needs more rear toe in (b to c) and still needs stiffer springs.

Thanks guys for your help so far.

Ray

Default setup

Hey Ray, Im' running an A/C rear block setup with the 2 degree arms. It's for an indoor carpet track that doesn't allow traction compound. It sticks real well and I'll find out Saturday if I'm scrubbing to much speed. It does corner well though.

I have a set of 2 bllocks. I should try them with more inner arm sweep. Another thng thats odd for me is my foam tire cars are all 51oz. The TB02 is 57 and I havent put a transponder in it yet!!! Not used to driving such a heavy car. I will need to work on being ultra-ultra smooth-or at times use the weight to my advantage.
