if there is any, go to ebay and ask one of those hongkong people who sells tamiya and ask how many there are that were sold and still in the market. I believe each of them still have about 11-15 TB Evo 2 and up to 5-6 Evo 1 in their stock. With Tamiya churning up their production to keep up with Evo 3 demands, I think both cars had been discontinued...at least for now.

The failure of tamiya to sell both Evo Is and IIs were blamed on the inefficiency of the drivetrain and the porkiness of the car itself. That's why tamiya skip ahead and produces the 414 and TA04 series to split the original TA01 and 02 away from the TA03 series. Thus the original TA got a new (proud) name to shod: TB series.

I have not been able to race my cars (Evo I and II) but I'm targeting Feb 22 to be the debut of at least my Evo II and see how it goes.

Good luck finding the info, Motorsport00

motorsport00 you can get the blue anodized TRF shocks anywhere where Tamiya is available. It costs $55-65 US dollars around here. Another blue thing that you can purchase is the optional motor sink. You can try ebay and ask one of those Hongkong sellers and they will give you the lists

Have anybody tried installing the TB01 gearbox on the TB-EVO1?
I haven't seen a TB-01 yet so I really don't have any idea. What problems am I going to encounter.

I got to run my TB EVO1 for the first time last saturday and I'm happy with how it handled. I had a look at my friend's TC3 and I can't believe how free the drivetraiin is. I can't say the same with my EVO1, I got it as free as I can. I even had it rebuilt a few times just to be sure it's as free as can be.

I remember a post from Kilruf (or was it Ruf?) in this thread saying the TB-01 drivetrain is much better. I would want to try it out.

I don't mind milling plastic parts. It's only the CF I prefer to NOT touch.

Thanks.

I just had a look at the PDF exploded view of teh TB01. I guess this can't be done then.

So how about the TB EVO3 gearbox on the TB EVO1?

NO way lolz

You either can build TB01 with CF chassis or rebuild the bearings as often as you can. That's it!
