Hi Rough,
If thats you in your Avatar well your one cool looking dude

I have made a few set up changes to my car during the week but haven't been able to test it because of constant rain over the last few days
As soon as I get a chance to test it I'll let you know how it goes..

I actually prefer my TB EvoII to my Xray!!!
Its one sweet ride and no stripped front one way gears like the newer model

Default UPDATE

I just got the Spur Gear adaptor for F201 over the weekend and unfortunately without a mere dremel modification (which I don't have), it will not fit TB EVo II

I need to take out some material at least to where the spur gear hub meets the pin on the driveshaft. Otherwise, the rear gearbox would sit right on its place nor the drivetrain be free.

OK I see.
Actually I have just ordered a Cross Spur Gear adapter for the TB-01.
I am hoping it will work with the TB Evo II. I have heard that it will..

On what surface do you run this set up on.

Yup, the Cross adaptor will work perfectly on the evo 2... but you may want to shim the shaft for better play though or the spur will wobble a bit...

I'm also curious whether this would work on a bumpy track.

I used to run red springs all around; I used graphite EVO arms in front and shaved TA04arms/2deg. rear hub. I was thinking that the soft srpings will make the car track better over the bumps. I also thought the soft front springs + front one way = more roll, better steering.

At that time, I was working on MCrisp's advice : Softer front springs + less front droop = more on power steering. Your setup setup reflects this very theory and I was a stout believer of it

Then I tried swapping in a yellow spring in front, red springs at the rear. I got more steering. I'm started to get confused. I swapped the red front springs and immediately found it less satisfying.

I'm working on this style of driving:

When I approach a corner at higher speed, I decrease throttle at about 1 ft away from the corner ( to transfer some weight in front) then start to steer. IMO this would give me more traction for steering. On mid Corner, I start to gradually increase speed. I try to accelerate hard without going too wide. Once I punched hard on throttle at mid corner and the car drifted just enough to line itself out of the corner. I like it.

There is a part in the track where a wide 180deg turn is followed by a tight hairpin. On the hairpin, I found that I can put 100% throttle and still follow a tight line with the EVO2. This happens with RED/YELLOW front and RED rear springs. With my old TA03, I had to apply 50% throttle on this part. I think this is where the front one way really comes to play. I haven't tried this with a spool.

Thanks for the confirmation eeyan. I should get it early next week. I look forward to using standard 48 pitch Spurs and Pinions

Rough512, I will post the set up I am using on a Parking Lot track soon.
It is reasonably smooth but is mostly unprepped so there are tiny pebbles which don't cause much problem, especially now that I have made a cowl for the Spur/ pinion area that keeps 95% of the dirt out of the gear area.
