The ifs ones do. The ifs-R comes with short-reversible suspension (light-weight too)...

That's interesting, especially if your going to run GT-2, disadvantage TB-03. Did Tamiya accidentally seal the fate of this car in that class???

nope they didnt. but you will need to invest in some smaller spurs and larger pinions.

i can get my TB-03 down to a 3.2 FDR for 17.5

With what gearing please?

Pinion spur (brand) any modding to do so or did they fit w/out modding?

The tb03 looks good I just woory about the gearing...I race 13.5/17.5/21.5 and the gearing worries me...I have faith in the durability the ta05 is/was a tank/easy to drive as well.

if you don't mind...
what size spur did you use? I can figure out the rest.

I recently bought a 74t spur and it was too small, the pinions wouldn't touch.
I'm waiting for my 86t to come in.

I currently run a 4.04 FDR in 17.5 (78/47 combo) and was wondering if anyone tried the 75t spur that Robinson Racing makes? Does the pinion reach and if so what is the smallest pinion you can run? Also what's the biggest pinion anyone tried so far?
