Hi Yes I living In Tokyo
But I have not seen any form of the evo2.
Oct the r/c show will be here and I going to see if the tbo1 evo2 exist. There is no info anywhere on the internet about the EVO2 within Japan That i have seen. So I thinking if the insiders are giving this info , or is just rumers.

It's not insider info or any rumor.

It's being posted on Tamiya USA's website. They posted "TB-Evo II" under what they are going to present in Tokyo hobby show.

So if possible when you go to the show, would you bring a camra and take a pic of the new EVo II and post it here????

try a 35t pinion, 72t spur if you're using stock.

sometimes the spoolup of the motor is slow so it seems slow to start.

another thing to look at are the differential. it might be slipping.

I posted about this quite a lot on RCTouring.com when it was around. Do NOT use the red rebound sponge when building the Tamiya shocks. They cause the rebound to "kick" and unsettle the chassis.

I run 88/35 with the P2K which gives you a FDR of about 6.5.

For those of you that have the threaded shocks, in particular for the "M" have you found a different nut for the shock bodies to use for setting tweak? I don't like using the dual units as my fingers are to fat to get them to work correctly. Thank you.

I really wish that Tamiya would release the black single collars that come on the TA04R kit. What I do is use a single collar with Loctite. Be careful that you don't use too much or it will stick HARD!

Smile Kraig...

I Heard The Yokomo Threaded Shock Collar Will Work On The Tamiya Shocks, You Might Want To Give Them A Try--Only Problem Is The Blue Collars Might Not Match up To The Silver Shocks...

Default TB EVO II pic!



Here's a little preview. It has different suspension geometry.
