As you can see I have fixed the problem with the steering rod. what was happening is when I built the kit I added the TB EvoII Aluminium steering set but when I fitted it, the steering rod that went from the servo saver to the bell crank was fouling on the propeller shaft. I shimmed the ball on the bell crank side to raise it up so that it was the same height on both sides. It took 4 of those shims to do so
It now clears though and works fine but it just seemed so weird that it took so many shims for it to do so.
My servo is standard size nothing special and the servo saver is the white one that comes in the kit..
I tested the car tonight and it ran well for its first outing. I am looking forward to developing it further and running it in stock class.
Better go now, talk to you later

Steevo
I think I'm gonna try those TA04 Aluminum Steering Bellcrank that I'm gonna use for my TA04 Project R and see if that one clears the TB EVO II shaft. You will have this problem if you're using aftermarket servo saver...it's just never enough :sad:

Can someone please let me know if when you use the TA04 rear uprights and lower arms on the TB Evo II do you need to change anything else to do the conversion?? Does the track with remain the same??

Thanks

No further changes needed, however, you might want to check that the hex hubs are of the same thickness. In my case, the hex hub from the TRF414 (a-arm/upright donor) were thicker so I initially had unequal track width.

I don't know the legal wheel base, but the conversion resulted to a longer distance from front wheels to rear wheels. I'd say about 4mm ~ 5mm.

Hi there rough512...
Thanks for the Info. Looks like the extra few mm could throw out the way my wheels sit in the wheel arches. Means I will have to slot the holes a bit..Ouch!!.
In your opinion do you think that the conversion made a lot of difference to the efficiency of the rear drive??

I am thinking that I might just buy the TB Evo II suspension setting kit which gives you a few other toe in adjustments etc which is really what I am after. I want about 2 degrees of toe in.

I have also heard that some people use the TA04 Front Caster Blocks..Have you heard of this one??

Hey thanks again for your help...

Hi steve,

Can't really judge how much efficiency I gained. I'm just contented seeing how the universal shaft does not slide up and down the outdrive slot (when the wheel turns) anymore. I did have to cut some more material from the wheel well.

I might try fitting in 04 arms in front. If you read back through the previous pages, someone already posted about using all 04 arms on his evo2. You might have to use the entire 04 front suspension components.

I found this on my PC. I can't recal where I got it from

Hi Will,
Try rollout of maybe around 35 to start.
Use 88 tooth Spur. Handy pinions would be from 33 to 37. Thats what I have any way. I use a Trinity Monster Stock Pro with 88T Spur and 36T Pinion. I am very Impressed with my TB EvoII. Much better than given credit for. I actually like it better than my Xray!!

I tried running the red springs on my first run. I liked how tame the car ran. The bumpy track used to make an interesting drive using the silver springs from the TB Evolution 1.

With the red springs, the seems to go straighter without me having to watch closely whether it's still tracking straight. However, the car tended to go wide on corners.

I'm going to try the yellow spring next time, same hole on the shock tower. The red springs at the rear will remain, but I'll try moving them to the outside holes on the tower.
