Thanks guys-1/2 of an ounce about.
Dont think I'll feel that on my 57oz tb02-eh?? but the not stripping part sounds appealing. While you guys are here-what phyllips bit/screwdriver fits these Tamiya screws the best?

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Are you talking about the standard philips head? Practically any will fit... (I usually get the fattest one though for more meat ).

If you are talking about the hex-type screws... I use the green ones from Integy.

Its a metric phyllips head-just dont know if its numbered or what the number would be? I borrowed a metric phyllips long ago on a Tamiya screw and the fit was locked in tight. hard to describe-but it was perfect. I have bits that fit-but its not the same.

Ray I think Tamiya calls it a +2
Tamiya has them in different styles, call Kevin I'm sure he has them at the store.

You have to get the titanium axles too. That must be an ounce and a half is savings. Not bad for $70

A number 2 philips is a standard size, no diff in metric, unless of course your trying to stir mayonaise with it.

Hey has anyone tried the 49t spur gear with 31 tooth pinion on their tb02 yet ?

Will the tamiya silver can motor handle the 4.11 ratio, or will it fail ?

Thanks.

NOPE, Ive only been to the Nats for the last 2 years. Takes 8 or more years to win, dont it ?????
Even Troy took a lot of years. But racing with Dan Garber,Brett Sissely,Peter Robinson, Troy & Kevin should cut down on that amount of time
