Do the body post holes match those from the Surikarn Evo 3? Also, has anyone tried to transplant the Evo 4 driveline into a TB-02?

Yea, for 2 battery packs- maybe 3 with 85 deg track temps. More like one and a half for 120+.

Well it's not like I'm gonna go out and buy a new set of tires every race day for club racing hehe...

Anyways... does anyone know if the Tech Racing turnbuckles comes in pairs or singles?

Default Prop cups

Took ours out yesterday with a 9x2 Fantom in it and it ate the rear prop cup.

So, I made some new ones, see pic. If anyone is interested, I will post some instructions on how to make them.

Front holes are OK, but you need to drill new rears, about 3/8" in front of the old ones.

OK, here goes.....

No guarantees. Just because I appear to have got away with it, doesn't mean anyone else will

Tools and parts needed:

Mains electric drill with a 1/2" chuck and variable speed
Battery drill/driver
6.0mm drill bit
2.5mm drill bit
A medium grade file (or one on a Swiss Tool or somesuch)
A junior hacksaw with a blade in new condition, or just a new blade and a steady hand

2x TA-04 Delrin diff joint kits (only need the long, non-bearing end)

Method (adapt to suit if you want)

1) Seperate out the long ends of the diff joints and the stabilising rings (glorified washers). You cannot use the short ends as they house one of the diff bearings and there is not enough meat left on them when they are drilled out.

2) Using the 6.0mm drill bit and the battery drill/driver, drill out both long diff ends to 6.0mm, from the rear (flared) end.

3) Slip one dff joint over the shank of the 6.0mm drill bit and clamp it in the chuck of the mains drill. Set the drill to a medium-low speed (600-1000 rpm).

4) lock the drill 'on' and steady it with your left hand on a flat surface.

5) Using the file, gently move back and forth on the exposed flared end of the diff joint until it is level (or nearly so) with the body of the joint.

6) Using the saw (or blade), cut 3mm off the end of the joint.

7) Stop the drill, take out the drill bit and joint and turn the joint round on the drill bit. Reclamp the joint in the chuck, but this time with the slot end outward.

8) Slip a stabilising ring onto the slotted end of the joint until it hits the stop.

9) Using the saw (or blade), cut off the end of the slotted portion 2mm away from the stabilising ring.

10) Remove the diff joint from the drill and slip it off the 6mm drill bit.

11) Using an old diff cup as a guide for height, drill a 2.5mm hole through the bottom of the joint body exactly in line with the slots.

12) Repeat steps 2-11 for the other joint.

13) Remove the top deck, top-bottom deck ties (if fitted, or the inner battery cradle if not), front top diff cover (if fitted and IMHO it ought to be), and pop off the steering link.

14) Pull out the front driveshaft/pinion assembly and the propshaft with it.

15) Remove the rear diff cup and replace it with one you have just made. Repeat on the removed front shaft

16) Slip both stabilising rings onto the propshaft and locate the shaft in the front cup/shaft assembly.

17) Locate the propshaft in the rear cup and push the front driveshaft/pinion assembly back into the front diff. If it will not go in, you did not cut enough off the back of the joints in step 6. There should be approximately 1mm play front to back on the propshaft.

18) If all is well, slip the stabilising rings onto each joint (or now, drivecup) and superglue into position.

19) Replace the diff cover, ties, steering link and top deck.

19) Test run, sit back and admire handiwork.

If you find at point 17 you have a problem, you have two ways round it.

You can carefully file the slot on both cups a little deeper, or you can remove them, cut a bit more off the back and then re-drill the 2.5mm holes at 90 degrees to the original ones.

You will probably get a little vibration on the propshaft, but it should be so small as not to worry about. I reckon it's about right for non-precision engineering?

This doesn't take half as long as it looks, I had the car working again in an hour and a half.

Ahh Yes, thank you for the clarification. YES, I am using the same shell for both cars.

Default Options ??

After being out off racing for four months i am going to start racing again and seeing as i have an EVO IV sitting around unbuilt i will be building it over the next week or so.

What i would like to know what option parts are worth fitting to the car ?? I did a search on R10 and the only item i found was the team bomber shaft which i will get but there must be more stuff out there like screw kits, drive shafts, stub axles, gearbox input shafts etc.

There is a few more items on R10 for the Evo4 but, you'll need some extra 950 bearings and the L tree for extra drive shaft cups.

I would get the optional aluminium input shafts for front and rear. The stock ones are very heavy. The bomber shaft is nice to have which also lightens up the drive train. And the Aluminium front oneway diff gear is nice as well, but not sure if it's necessary.(I haven't run the kit composite/plastic oneway gear. So I don't know how durable it is.
