Yeah that's what I have in it now. After a bench warm up spin. It feels pretty good.

Have you got Eric Wippler's carbon drive shaft yet? The drive shaft, Exotek's or R1's lightened out drives in the rear really give this chassis a ton of forward bite out of the corner. Both of these items combined will save you 10-12 grams in the drive train. If your going to run 17.5T, try theTB03 aluminum ball diff (54056) too. It holds up great as far as rebuilding with a 17.5T. Another large weight savings in the drive train over the Tamiya gear diff. If you want to stay with a gear diff, try the Spec R (SPR009-TB) Sean @ TQ has both diffs in stock.

Tamiya gear diff - 25 grams
Spec-R gear diff - 19 grams
TB03 Ball Diff - 14 grams

Lee
What's the part number for the lightened drives?

I'm sticking with stock parts so far, but I think this is what Lee is talking about

Has anyone ran into a warped pair of drivetrain gears? The gear on the spur and gear it mates to are slightly warped causing a slight bind. I'm not too concerned as I'll be going exo soon but wondered if anyone has seen it and how it was remedied.

Isn't parts missing from the TB03 aluminum ball diff (54056)? If so, what do I need to complete it?

I believe the correct part number for the TB04 ball diff is 54522

TB04 ball diff is 54522 and has all of the parts in a set.

I then used EVO 5 Ring and pinion gears in place of the TBO 4 gears because they are one tooth smaller (39T vs 40T) - lower IDR 2.437 vs 2.5.

Can those gears be used with the gear diff and stock spool?

The one-way gears from the Evo3, Evo4 and Evo5 are all 39t and fit all the spools and gear diffs

Evo 5 one way gear used on the spool is PN 51255. Make sure you order the right gear as the center hole in both the ball diff gear PN 51256 (small hole) and the spool gear (large hole) are different. TQ has these in stock also.
