To be honest, I am not entirely sure. I have just bought the Hardened TB Evo II arms and had no problems with them. You can get TB Evolution arms too, but aside from that, i am not sure what else are compatible. The Evo III probably are, since most of the two cars look the same except for the battery position and the drivetrain.

Sorry I can't help much more, i gotta admit, i'd like to know myself!!

Brainteased...

You can do a complete conversion and use the TA04/evo3 arms on the evo2, but you have to use the upright, c-hubs and steering knuckles of the TA04/Evo3 as well... unfortunately, the stock evo2 suspension parts are slightly different and will be slightly off if you just replace the arms... a complete makeover is needed to make it work... hope this helps...

if you use the ta04/evo3 arms you will be extending your wheelbase, even without those spacers. I have an evo2 and evo3 and i tried swapping out the arms but it made the wheelbase too long no matter what i did. then i looked at some pics of the evo2.5 and they used ta04ss arms. almost the same geometry and now your car will still fit your bodies. like eeyan said you will need to buy the uprights and c-hubs, etc to make it all work nicely, dont forget new hingepins like i did. i also fit an evo3 rear shock tower onto my evo2 so i can run the same bodies on my evo2 and 3. I would have done the front too but speedtechrc was out of front shock towers for the evo3. lemme know if you want to see a pic...

I thought TB EVO2 died out due to the release of the EVO3. By the way, I'm new to RC Tech forums but Eeyan knows a bit about me already. In regards to your question BrainTeased, there should 'nt be that much besides the urethane bumper. When I first had the EVO2 with the original arms and uprights, the only thing that broke was my left rear upright when the wheel clipped one of the exposed pipes on the track I was on & also the urethane bumper during frontal collisions. But when I converted the car in to the EVO2.5 spec which I saw on this thread a long way back, nothing has broken so far. The bumper issue, bought the TB02 bumper & did some slight modifications w/ my dremel tool & issue resolved. Actually the TB02 bumper looks like the one Square made for the EVO3. The latest thing I added to the car was the EVO3 alum spurgear holder. Had to shave at least 2mm from the rear diff case where the end of the prop shaft was inserted and deepened the slot where the pin goes in. And also bought the EVO2 susp set-up parts.

Quick question for you. Did you make any mods to the EVO3 rear shock tower to fit your EVO2's gear case? Thanks for your reply.
