  • Quote: actually i am happy that its a IV now and not eIII. Parts seem to be easier to get, even a local shop has IV parts...

    little confused...you mentioned earlier "(however u should change the gear to correct eIV part, TB03 uses e5 gears)"??? isn't the gears already eIV since the car is eIV
    NEVERMIND... i understand now..haha

    thanks for your help.. i am actually gonna head to the shop and pick up the TB03 spool right now... and hopefully some more goodies

    If you ever need parts or a spare vehicle, I have a evo 4 with ms hop-up parts, rolling chassis, very clean and available for sale.
  • no i meant when u buy the TB03 spool, it comes with a TBe5 gear in the bag.
    Gotta swap this for a proper eIV "oneway" gear.

    each of the eIII/IV/5 have their own unique gears so never intermix


    re parts availability, depends how u see it

    eIII = TB02 so a lot of the gears, plastic bulkheads & diff outdrives
    got boughtup by TB02 people which led to shortage

    e5 = TB03 so same again for gears, diff parts, centre shaft etc
    but they're still a current model so shouldn't be parts shortage

    eIV otoh is a bit of an orphan, its got own gears & nothing unique reused
    on another model ... so some LHS may still have unsold old stock


    eIV has their own rctech thread

    thanks WC... your a lifesaver... off to the IV thread... take care...
  • btw i am reminded that Spec-R now makes a gear diff for TB03

    http://www.spec-r.com/default/index....roducts_id=141

    should fit the e5 nicely but not sure if the gear's
    teeth profile difference will hinder its use in eIV
  • I have a TB EVO 3 Surikarn with a front one way which is not really working for me on the track.
    Can I take the ball diff from my TB02 and drop it straight in ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I decided to upgrade the model with the metal suspension.
    Could you tell me which are better: GPM or YeahRacing ?

    Which model alloy hop-up to choose& TB-02 or TB-03 or maybe TA-05 ?

    Thanks for help.
