From what people told me, these Tao4 parts from integy can fit on the evos....however, in not sure if the steering bell cranks may be used on an Evo 2 or not, because the lower part of the bell crank tower differs between the 2 cars, where the evo 1 uses 4 screws while the evo 2 uses only 2 screws.

I have a TB01 and would like to get some more steering. If I go to lighter front springs would this help some. I know my TA03 gets more traction the stiffer I make it. When I go to softer springs is loosens the car up and harder springs will make it stick more. That worked like that on both ends of the car. Can I expect the TB01 to be the same.

I have 60wt front and rear with Tamiya Type A's front and rear. I run the stiffer series Tamiya springs. I have the red springs in the front and the dark blue in the rear.

you can always toe out the front a bit for more steering
and add a rear sway bar always gives you a bit more steering too

or you can also go with white Hard springs at the back.

okay, I got the TA04 front hubs and NO they do not fit right.

they sort of work, but its off in several places.... toe link, length of hub itself is shorter and needs a different size bearing inside the hub....


Anyone wanna buy a set of aluminum front hubs for a TA04?

the different size berring is ok, can be easily replaced, but the toe in, i think u just have to change the length steering arms right?

they told me that the angle of this o4 hub is better.....

i know bout that stuff, but what you dont understand is that, the length of the hub(horizonatl width) its much smaller and leaves a big gap between the aluminum hex hub and the ta04 hub... the wheel might rub the arm if its turned too much as well.

what I do is I bent a battery bar into right angle and then solder it onto the cells, and then just use wires do direct soldering. doing this makes all kinds of cell fit in to the slot.

Also, if you wan to use connector, still, bent a battery bar and solder it to the cell positve and negtive ends and then solder the connector of choice on it. Then you can fit any kinds of connectors.

when you guys run the TB evoII, did you notice that the rear gear box makes a sound that sounds like the gear is kinda jumping around in the gear box?

Could be your outdrives as they do have alot of slop. My friends has more slop than my standard TB01 with the plastic tub. It still runs fine but I would check to make sure you didn't strip the outdrive cup at all.
