Default Motor Change

I've managed to set my diff correctly, but now changing the motor (tightening the motor screws are a chore!). Does anyone have an easier way of change the motor or pinion in a TB evo?

Hi Guys,

I need you guys' opinion. Where do you currently get your Tamiya parts for the TB Evo, and the TA04R, or just Tamiya parts in general. And would you guys be interested in seeing Speed Tech R/C carrying Tamiya parts?

Thanks

ivan: changing the motor for the tb evo is really a chore. wait until you change the spur gear -- you'd have to take out the rear diff assembly. ugh!

anyway, i found out that having a 2.5mm ball hex driver makes it easier to take out and install the motor mounting screws. i use the provided hex driver to tighten or loosen the screws.

hope that helps.

speedtech: the local hobby shops usually carry spare parts but in my case (manila, philippines) not much spares are available -- only for the popular kits. so if i'm in a bind i have a friend get it for me from hongkong.

Spider: Yeah man, I tried tightening the diffs and I had to take apart the whole thing. Changing motors really got me very annoyed, let alone pinions. I had a tc3 before and never had such problems. I guess tamiya assumes that you never will change the pinions or motors once installed.

ivan: for the past couple of months since i've been using the tb evo i've gotten used to it. the 2.5mm ball hex driver really helped in easing installation and removal of the motor. but its still harder.

tamiya, are you listening in? hello?

Hi,
I run a tamiya F1 and run it at there track at tamiya america. Since you can only run tamiya there i would like to get a tamiya touring car. What is your opinion on the tb-evolution? Would i be better off with a TA04? Also I am an experienced driver so i dont want a car were i have to buy a lot of hop ups to be competitive. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess your choices would be the evo 1/2 and the 414M. I should have saved for the 414M, it's cheaper and comes with most of the hop-ups. I prefer imo the 414 as it shares parts with the ta04.
