newracer: the arms are the same as the first tb evolution (checked with the japanese site)

the new kit (2) came out a little cheaper than the tb evo 1 according to reports that just came in from hong kong.

most of the parts of the evo 1 are either from the tg10/tgr or the tb01. the evo specific parts would be the arms and the decks. in the case of the evo 2 the alum bulkheads are new to the line.

Just been looking at the evo-2 and it looks very nice.

It still has the aluminium prop shaft though. I thought Tamiya came out with a carbon fiber version. What ever happened to that? Is an option part?

Thanks.

I hope it isn't the same carbon propshaft that came out when the TB-01 was first introduced.

That one delaminated into loose strands of carbon fibre after I used a 11 turn triple in my car.

I bought the aluminium propshaft for about a third of the price and have had no problems since.

actually if the TB-01 your are getting has all the hop ups, it probably has the long suspension setup which is the same arms as the Evo, the Evo is very durable, my friend and I have crashed running very hot motors (7x1 and 10x3) with no broken parts


the carbon shaft is awfull, it will delaminate with just a stock motor after about 10 runs

that one's weak. it frays at the edges when driven hard. may still be under re-development.

that's true. i've been mishandling my tb evo like its my first on-road kit (which it is) and the only thing that broke is one of the ball connectors holding the damper. this one's connected to one of the suspension arms. so i have to get a cutting tool to make a screw driver slot to get he thing out....

Does Lunsford make Titanium turnbuckles for the TB01 evo? I just got the evo II and the turnbuckles suck, no place to grip. no wrench. Hurts my hands.

Call up Lunsford to see, or most LHS carry a tray full of various sizes of titanium turnbuckles. If they don't have a tray you have them order any length in pairs from Lunsford. You might have to use standard plastic rod ends because the Tamiya is metric and won't thread properly.

Hi all,

did any of you switch the TB evo's steering into the Al. racing steering? if so, is part number 53365 te right steering set to get? I got myself that al. racing steering thing, but it doesn't seem to fit right on my evo. the Lower steering rod that connect two steering thing is too high up, it got caught on the drive shaft. how to fix this??

I got the new EVO II and it's pretty good. I set the car up as the instructions stated and the car handled well. The red springs that came with the car, with 30 weight oil, are a tad bit soft. The car was leaning a little too much even with the sway bars. I changed to stiffer Tamiya blue springs at all 4 corners and added about 2mm of kick up to the front and the car only has a slight onpower push coming out of a turn. This is all with a stock motor. I haven't tried mod yet. The car is great off of the line and the straight line speed isn't bad either.

Any set up tips for the EVO1 or II? Especially for mod. What gearing would you use for a 12X2 motor? 88T and what pinion?

thanks
