I've searched and scrolled through the last 25 pages of this thread. My eyes are about to explode...

Can someone please tell me if there's a "best way" to install at GTB into the regular plastic chassis? Pics would be even more helpful.

Thankyouthankyouthankyou.

Behind the motor, I fit an LRP Sphere in there fine.

You won't find stock pinions to gear up enough on these except a Silver can where I'd use a 25

As for the Alloy Diff Housings, pointless bling and excess weight IMO

A GTB will barely fit but does if you file the corner of the output board to clear the screw bump along the backbone of the chassis. It will fit in there because I used it for the TCS, however, I got rid of it for a Tekin RS Pro which fits in easily including its tiny cap. (Never was a big fan of the orange junk.)

Just play with it and you'll see that it will work but the Tekin or LRP is so much better.

I should have mentioned that you want to place the GTB so the power wire cb is facing the motor.

They may be bling but they make belt adjustments easier.

We are using FDRs around 4.5 to 5 for silver can, 4.5 for 13.5 and 4.2 for 17.5.

How? You still have to take off the top bulkhead and adjust the spacers don't you?

The index pin is pressed into the lower bulkhead eliminating the eccentric cam holder. One less part to manuver makes it easier in my play book. (actually that is two less parts, one on each side.)

Under the suspension blocks holding the lower arms (between the blocks and the chassis). This can change the roll center, anti-squat and anti-dive characteristics.

Can someone enlighten me about this "roll center, anti-squat and anti-dive characteristics"?
If I add "Suspension Mount Spacer" in the back alone what will be the effect?

When or what tracks do we need to put spacer in suspension block?

thanks

I know this is the TA-05 thread, but i could not find a TB-02 thread & i thought maybe some one hear might know.

1. Will a TB-02 fit standard 48 pitch spur gears?
2. What is the lowest posible Final Drive Ratio for the TB-02?
3. Is the motor mount limited to holes or is it sloted?

thanks

Here you go...the huge TB-02 thread:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...a-tb-02-a.html

However,
1. Yes, the "hockey puck" that comes with the kit fits in the stock spur gear's place and adapts to standard 48p or 64p spur gears.

2. Given the above, pretty low.

3. Holes with 4 positions. 3racing motor mount is slotted, and other aftermarket ones may be too.
