I haven't had any problems with the white servo saver.

Just make sure that when you put the rings on, don't bend them outward. Let them slide on.

Randman - NICE body!

OUCH

your the guy with all the tools too

can you maybe just dremel a slot into the screws and possibly get them out using a blade driver?

man what luck!

Exclamation TB02??

check this out guys...TB02???

58310 1/10 Scale R/C 4WD Mercedes-Benz CLK-DTM

For this new addition to the R/C Car Series, Tamiya introduces the TB-02. Based on TB Evolution III, the TB-02 chassis can be fitted with aluminum and carbon parts designed for the TB Evolution III. For the first model using this chassis, Tamiya has chosen the popular Mercedes-Benz CLK-DTM Team Vodafone AMG-Mercedes.

To mark the release of the TB-02 chassis, Tamiya is also releasing a series of optional parts.

53677 TB-02 Stabilizer Set (F & R)
In order to improve stability on high grip roads, Tamiya offers a stabilizer set for the TB-02 chassis.

53678 TB-02 Aluminum Racing Steering Set
To obtain a more secure attachment and more direct response on cornering, Tamiya offers an aluminum steering set for the TB-02. Combined with a carbon plate, you obtain a TB-EVO III style chassis.

53679 TB-02 SSG Carbon Center Plate This option part carbon center plate attaches to the bottom of the main frame of the TB-02 chassis, providing more solid pitching, more accurate suspension settings, and reduced power loss.

53680 TB-02 Aluminum Motor Mount
This blue anodized Aluminum Motor Mount allows drivers to lighten their chassis for higher performance. Like the regular part included with the TB-02 chassis, this aluminum mount features 4 different motor positions allowing 12 gear ratios when combined with various pinions.

53681 Titanium Wheel Axle for Assembly Universal Shaft
This Titanium Wheel Axle has been designed for the Assembly Universal Shaft to be mounted on the TB Evolution III and TA04 chassis and can be mounted at the front and at the rear. Its lightweight (only 2g) provides reduced power loss and a higher top speed.

53684 TB Evolution III Aluminum Heat Sink Motor Mount
Presenting a gray anodized version of the TB Evolution III motor mount included in the 49335 TB Evolution III Blue Conversion Set (September Coming Soon). Shape of motor mount means improved heat dissipation, and longer connector holes makes removal of motor easy.


its from here Team Orion Web site

I got all the tools except phillips head crap

Got it all back together, now I'm just shimming the gears until I get them perfect. It's already pretty free, the tooth size is a hair smaller than the Tamiya gear, but I dont think there will be any meshing problems once I finish breaking it in.

The tooth size on what? A different ring gear?

BTW- the car looks great with that body!!

Here's mine- this was just a quick shot. Keep in mind this body has been run for like 10 practice packs, 5 hours of glitching (no I'm not exaggerating) to fix the glitches, and 2 full races...

wow, the Square parts do look good Jason If these new gears work out next Tuesday, then I'll post pics and a how-to, although I think Rocketron already has. I ran prostock last tuesday, but I'll be throwing in a brushless motor this coming week, see how the car holds up with some actual power thrown at it.
