Let's hope this chassis protector does its job...

BOOTY SHOT

Once again, your feedback is very much appreciated!
Damn cool, the car now looks like TRF kit .

Unfortunately the arms did not come with the blue conversion kit; they were some aftermarket part that came with the TB02 when I bought it. This was everything that came with the kit:



Also, if you guys want a deal on the upper and lower carbon deck for evo III, PM user x414x, I think he still has a set for sale

tbox, which company produces the after mart part for the arms. Can I substitute it with arms for Tamiya 416 or X series. Are they compatible?

Thanks KREATOR1! Post up pictures when you're done!!

Toh WL: as far as I know, GPM, Topcad, and Yeah Racing all make aluminum arms that fit TB02/TA05/EVOIII. Topcad ones are rather hard to find since they have been discontinued, but GPM and Year Racing ones are all accessible through either Ebay or RCMart:

GPM

Yeah Racing Front
Yeah Racing Rear

Topcad front
Topcad rear

As for if they fit on the 416...I have no idea because I don't own one, but I can tell you if they fit on the 415MSXX MRE maybe tomorrow, if that helps.

Now that the project is over, I guess I should share my inspiration.
This is the COOLEST/BLUEST EVOIII anyone will EVER see:

TechRacing used to make one, probably out of production now.

I hear some ppl have fitted the 3Racing TB03 spool.

I have tried Tamiya's TB03 spool and it doesn't not fit right, too wide.

YeahRacing made alloy diff outdrives for TB02, could just assemble your own spool by bolting them solid.

Tamiyausa got some parts on sale currently, example below.
chassis:

I think you can try www.tamiyausa.com for most of replacement parts if they're not discontinued.
