Hi Guys, question on the Tamiya TT-01 Enzo
Okay, I'm not an R/C newb. I've been driving the a TC-3 Nitro for about a year now. I mostly enjoy detailing bodies and building nice-ass looking cars, but I enjoy racing it too, just for fun.
I just moved to the Harrisburg area, and have found with some dismay that nitro on-road racing doesn't have much of a place around here. I've found nitro off-road, electric off-road, and electric ON-road, but no nitro on-road.
So, I've been contemplating getting an electric on-road car. I just recently picked up an Enzo body (Proline) for my TC3 for kicks, and was looking for another body to make a show-car out of. I found a Tamiya TT-01 Enzo electric kit for $83 bucks online. I'll need the radio (but I'm guessing I can just use my TC-3 radio) and I guess some batteries and chargers. But I can get that stuff.
I did some reading already, and have generally read good stuff about the TT-01 Chassis. I understand I should make it "ball-raced," which I have no idea what that means. But is there anything else you guys can tell me about the TT-01? Is $83 a good price for it with a body? I'll be using it on an indoor road course, on carpet. I'm not looking to do national competition, just fun-running on the weekends.
Tips tricks ideas? Should I buy it and figure the rest out later? I think it's a limited time sale...
