For those that are interested in the EXO-6 here is a build. There are a few Guys with the evo who have the kit. We run on a tight track so it will be interesting to see if they can beat the times that can achieved with the TRF419's

I managed to TQ and take first place in the GT10 Class (17.5T) at the Tuning Haus End of Summer Race at Tamiya America yesterday using my Tamiya/EXO6 Chassis. Since the track conditions were similar to the ROAR Nat's two weeks ago I decided to start with the same setup (setup located on the Exotek website under Tamiya - EXO 6 conversion). It was perfect for the race and I didn't have to make any changes.
This car has so much corner/roll speed and on power punch out of the corners. I think it was my advantage in the race.

Just finished building my kit. It was the first Tamiya I have owned since my Frog in the mid/late 80's. The car went together great. I really like how the gear diff was done. I am running the EXO SIX conversion as well. It went together great. The spur adaptor is awesome and the battery hold down system is down right ingenious.

In the last pic, I used a bumper mount from my VBC D06 since they match the Tamiya perfectly and provide a brace as it is just right to touch the sway bar mounting screws.

Now I just need to swap over the electronics from my belt drive cars and get in some track time. Going to try RobK's suggestions for a starting point on carpet.

Here are a couple build pics.

EVO6 is a carbon fiber chassis and a TB04 or a TB04 pro 2 is a tub chassis but the drive train is very similar. Since the TB04 is a tub chassis it doesn't have a floating servo mount or steering linkages. So you have to buy the $44 TB04 conversion kit.

Yes, TB04 towers are different. There are short shocks and towers also. Too bad I can't use The IFS setup with this conversion.

Thumbs up TB04 vs. Evo6

I also believe the evo 6 is using the 419 suspension , think most of the tb04 kits are using the older 417/ta05 suspension unless it is a pro II or an R kit both hard to find kits

Yes they do work on the EXO6 chassis.

FYI.... I just finished building my tbo4 pro exotech conversion and will be running some carpet this weekend and then hopefully the following weekend I can run it at Tamiya and compare it to Rod and Lee car .
