It should solve the one-way gear stipping problem.

Here is a pick of it from someones post from pages back.

I've got the red ones... and they are very very hard to get.


Check your pm.

Don't know if this has already been posted, but I talked to Fred (Tamiya) and he said that cutting out the lip (arond the gear and in between the teeth) on the front pinion gear helps stop stripping the one way gear.

A while back my friend P2 posted running the rear gear up front (with some mods) helps also.

I think these two combined could be a great solution.

EJ,

I gonna give that a try too. As you know I've had great success running the rear diff gear up front. I'm also using longer screws to hold the gear cases together. These mods have helped a lot. I'm still on the same modified rear gear up front for 5/6 race days. It's time to make another one!

Default TB02

John, remember spurs and pinions are, or have been open.
you need to play wit a smaller spur and a large pinion for better gearing. The TB02 5.7 gear ratio is a 25 / 55 in the coarse gearing. So with the gear adapter for the EVO3 and some small TC3 spurs you might find a good mesh in the TB02.

Here is a pic of my TB02. I opted for the 49335 conversion kit to help with some suspension adjusting.

Default Formula for final drive Ratio

What is the formula for figuring out the final drive ratio for a Spur and Pinion combo.


For example, what would be the final drive for a 96 spur and a 33 pinion.

Thanks,
Larry

Default Tb02

In comparison to the evo3 is the TB02 just as stiff?Stiffer?I gott get working on my TCS tb02 soon.Looks nice!

Does the evo3 spur gear adapter fit on the tb02.I hear the ratio is stuck at 5.7 not good for 540 thats for sure.Just wondering.I am gonna run GT2 anyway

96/33=2.90

2.90*2.6 internal ratio=7.54

7.54 is your ratio

There you go Larry did you get in touch with Troy. That is his 02 in the pics above

Racenut if you look at the rules even if it does fit Fred already made it illegal. From what I understand it will not fit anyway.
