So what do I need to make the F201 gears work with the TB02R? Can I get the parts numbers as well please? Thanks

When used with the F201 Tamiya # 53552, 52T spur gear the ratio is 5.01
For that ratio, use bolt patern "C" on the motor mount.

also a 24 / 25 pinion, not sure of the number

it would depend on the track, but mainly with a 540silver motor the 27

27t pinion # 49230. Is now discontinued from Tamiya, just like the EVOIII diff joints, std black ones. You now have to buy the high dollar ones.

With a 23 turn it depends on the track.

Default Diff help

I am a newbie and recently purchased by tb02. The only thing I am having trouble setting up is the diff - I don't know how tight or loose to make it. At first it was too loose - if I turned on wheel, none of the others would rotate, so I tightened it up, and then within 5 minutes the rear diff went (stripped diff gear I think - I have not had the chance to check yet, but it is now a fwd car ).

How do I know how tight to make it? How many turns should I be off fully tight. What effect on handling will I have with adjusting the diffs with various amounts of slip.

Thanks for your help (the first of many questions).
Nathan

The diff should be just tight enough so that when holding both the outdrives you cannot turn the bevel gear. Use two allen wrenchs through the slots in the outdrives to assist in holding the outdrives stationary.

Are the TRF Fluorine shocks a waste on the TB02 since the TB02's chassis flexes quite a bit? What are the necessary hopups to make this car competitive?

The TRF shocks are a great improvement from the plastic ones you'd be getting. Ultra smooth, aluminum and delrin last waaay longer than the regular plastic, shorter shock length, and the threaded collars instead of using (and losing) spacing clips.

The TB-02R has it pretty well right, with the sway bars, universals (at least in the front) lightweight shaft (a must to avoid stripping bevels), and LW suspension (although it's easier to break). They should have also included the aluminum motor mount, which I think is important. The Evo III One-way is good for larger tracks too.

The SSG brace plate will make it more rigid along the length of the chassis for when you accelerate hard. It's good enough for occasional drivers like me. Sold mine to get a TA05, but either of the two are good choices for most people who want to keep it simple, but still have the features and adjustments to be competitive.

Does Tamiya make that SSG Brace? Do you have a part number of it? Thanks

for those new to the TB-02/EvoIII... there are several REVISIONS for the shaft.

original EvoIII shaft
evoIII lightweight shaft - 2mm longer (skinny bevel ends)
TB-02R shaft - same length as evoIII lightweight shaft but fatter bevel ends (the part that goes into the bevel gear). this is the NON-lightweight version.

and finally... the BLUE lightweight shaft is 2mm longer than the evoIII lightweight shaft AND has the fatter bevel ends. this shaft is 4mm longer than the original evoIII shaft.

if possible, pick up the blue version. ill post the part # when i get home later.
