TB-02 shims and sus.blocks?

Hey guys,

How should I shim the diff bearings (the 10x15mm ones) if I'm running Evo3 delrin diffs on both ends? should I stick with the TB-02 kit setting (0.1mm on both sides) or change the shimming (to loosen the bevel-diff gear mesh)? I'm running an MVP with 58/20 gearing.

and BTW, to adjust anti-dive and anti-squat on the TB-02 , which bits do I need to buy? And how many degrees of toe-in does the TA04 toe-in rear upright give (and can I use that on the TB-02)?

You can stick with .1 on each side! Basiscaly just adjust to set mesh.

53539 is a shim set to adjust the kick / anti dive stuff

The TA04 hop up toe in uprights should be 2 degree, there is a mark in the inside portion near the hinge pin.

53439 is anti wear grease...I checked in tamiyausa.com's part listing.

And which cars' alu.sus mount can I use on the TB-02? I know the Evo3..but what else? non-MS 415?

thanks for the reply though.

OOPS, I fat fingered it. Try 53539

All, up till now have same mounting. EVO II, III, IV ; TRF414, 415

The difference is height. 414 and EVO II are (0) ; 415 is (1) and EVOIII, IV are (2)

so to adjust the anti-dive/squat stick the washers under the suspension block..but where? right where the screws thread into the block? it seems odd because I'm used to the plastic full-length spacers like on the TC4 and the Pro4.

so the 415MS blocks won't fit?

and does using the 5mm fluorine coated suspension ball (for the al. suspension mounts) make a big difference compared to when using the normal 5mm suspension balls?

thanks for the info... the difference in height of the 414/415/Evo2/3/4 sus.mounts are in mm right?

All the 415 blocks fit MS and regular. As noted above the ball mount in the block has different heights based on the car it was for. So if you want 1 mm of kick up then you might want a 415 block in the rear and a EVO 3 or 4 block in the front that way you won't need shims.
As for shims just put them between the block and the chassis plate with the screw through the center.
Yes the height is in mm.
also to note the TB02 is not the same as a EVO 3 or 4 mount it is .5mm off. I cant remember which way though
Also to note the A block would be the same a a stock TB02 block.
And for the diff shimming, I use stock. there are so many people that have tried to second guess the stock settings, and probably havent gained anything. If they did I'm sure it would be all over these threads.
I'm not sure most people would notice the flourine balls, but for the price and being that you need balls when you change to the aluminum blocks, I'd get them, but like I said I don't think most people be able to tell the difference.
