Can someone post a specific source?

Thanks again.
You can get a complete set in titanium from Steve at www.speedtechrc.com for $ 44.99 plus shipping. These are the machine screw type that work much better in plastic than the kit supplied self tapping wood screw style.

having just bought one of the fans to cool the motor, what is the best way to mount one on the TB02 chassis?

I mounted mine with a piece of lexan right next to the motor, facing down on it.

Why not just buy the heat sync with the built in fan? They aren't very expensive and they work great.

Is there anyway to make this kit any lighter? Mine has almost all the hop ups(only needs the blue converstion kit) yet it still is heavier than my tbevo. The car handles great and that's the only down side I see really.

This is what I've done to get rid of excess baggage.

Shorten wires from your esc to motor, and esc to battery connectors.
Shorten wire from servo to esc
Remove ssg center plate & 6 screws.
Don't bother with the motor heat sink if running stock class.

Tobee craft makes it. Part no's are on the previous page.

You also need to shim between the bearing and spur gear holder on the drive shaft. This will prevent the spur gear holder from rubbin on the inside of the plastic spur gear cover.

I'm running a Team Orion Core stock and it gets pretty hot after a 5 minute run, even in colder weather.
I think the motor heatsink would be a "must-have" with all that heat going on?

I don't use the tb-02 motor heat sink in stock because it blocks up the air vents in the motor can.

yeah, I switched the heatsink to one that allows the vents to breathe.
I still get some major heat... but I think maybe it might be my ESC.

Tobee craft as in http://www3.kcn.ne.jp/~tobee/English.htm


Tamiya don't make them at that size. Smallest for the tb-02 is the f1 high speed gear set which has the 52t spur.

The 49t spur is a must have if you're racing 540 silver can motors and a high speed track.

You might want to check legalities if you race in TCS though.
