does anyone here know if the new aluminum bulkheads and damper stays of the evo2 will be available separately? in other words, can the new parts be attached the the old tb evo?

thanks for the link.

looking at the gear cases, it appears like it is possible to use the new aluminum bulkheads for the old tb evo provided that the new shock towers will be used as well.

interesting. is the new lower carbon fiber deck.

The lower deck has to be Carbon Fiber...

got all those holes now for the batteries...less weight too...

oh ya, one more thing, is the first TB Evo a balance car?
since all the electronic is on one side and the battery is on the other side?

from the stock setup, yes.

once i put in the batts and electronics. there is no noticable leaning on either the battery or electronics side. here's what i normally use:

futaba s3003 servo
futaba fm receiver
novak super rooster (soon to be replaced with a tc2)
tamiya type t or type r motors
team orion active sport pack ni-mh 3000mAh

with turning practices i do not notice any bias on either left or right.

hmmmm.... come to think of it, maybe i should weigh the electronics and batts....

i forgot to mention that the hole on the lower deck for the motor is different.

i was hoping that they'd come out with a chassis that has battery holes on both sides. maybe i should get a new lower deck and test if i can make additional batt holes on the motor side.

has anyone tried making additional battery slots on the other side of the carbon fiver lower deck?

my idea is to cut an additional three batt slots on the other side of the lower deck so that i can have more control over the balance of the car.

what do you guys think?

I guess u are refering to the Camber Link. No, on my 04 that does not break easily, at most it pops off at very bad crashes (My best guess. Never had a crash which popped the front camber link ), but u can pop it back in again. WHen I wrecked my front A-arm on my 04 the worst happened to the camber link was the plastic bent out of shape. The metal rod was intact.

Default small talk

for the past two weeks i suffered 2 major glitches resulting in the
tb evo1 doing a head on kiss with a wall at full throttle on both
occasions. it flew up about 2 feet and landed on its back with a wham still going at full throttle. ouch.

maybe its in my receiver or likely the way i re-layed out my antenna. this did not happed before i re-laye dout my antenna wire. i'll return the layout of the antenna wire tonight and will test again.

the damage? it popped a 3x15 tapping screw off the front bumper, made a 5mm hole in front of the body of the car, the steering was tweaked a little but nothing bent or broken and easily adjustable. and the car still ran.

i think its a good buy. 8)

what setup are people using? specifically for prrepared asphalt tracks? I have found the best to be really soft in the front (Tamiay gold) and really stiff in the rear (new Tamiya white). anybody else the same?
