That's what I'm thinking about doing... I have my special edition FF01, and I've made it race ready, but I'm scared to run it for fear of breaking parts... so I might get a FF03 since it's new, hot, and parts will be/are readily available...

Same with my HPI Super F1... you CAN'T get front arms for that thing anywhere (luckily I have two spare sets) so I bought a F104

Would a TL-01 (just chassis no servo or electronics) be a fair trade for an FF chassis of the same. Its in good condition full ball bearing upgrade. And does anybody have a FF chassis that are willing to trade for a TL01 in good condition don't need the electronics. If someone is interested i can post pics of the TL01 chassis

I personally would not trade my FF01 for any TL-01.

I didn't really know what a TL-01 is worth (I got this of ebay and the guy didn't know what type of chassis it was and I didn't see many TL-01 chassis for sale by themselves and to me it looked like a 4wd mini I'm a big Front drive chassis fan and I figured I'd try the 4wd and I recently heard of the FF chassis so naturally I wanted one) I saw an FF01 sell on ebay for about forty bux. I just figured the TL-01 was worth that much. I wasn't trying to con anybody.

I agree. The FF01 is a beloved breed that is scarce and probably worth more than they are given credit for...

The TL01 was the poorest RC car Tamiya produced for racing use, it is no more than a toy that thinks it is a racer, even the TT01 will run rings around a TL01.
FF01 was good as a basic race car, and gave many lots of fun.
FF02 was a joke, and was only acceptable in its 210mm M chassis car spec.
FF03 has all the adjustments of the current race spec cars, including an adjustable ball diff and droop stops, and can be set from 225mm to 260mm using the 3 main chassis lengths and then the suspension arm and hub spacers.

Biggest issue is weight distribution. If you are not going racing like that guy in the link did i would consider the team Powers 540 micro motors. they are 30 % smaller (shorter)

That will help on the left/right distribution. Im thinking about buying that motor if im going drifting with it.

The guy from the link is here on the forum.

TL01 can be made to work, but it takes a fair bit of option parts and set up, and a good driver, but it will still be well off the pace of other cars driven by someone of similar experience.
Biggest pain was the servo saver that kept coming undone, even with after market servo savers and high quality servo's.

TL01's are on par with TA01 and TA02 Tamiya's, and much slower than TT01's

Anyway, this is a FWD forum, so TL01 chat shouldn't be in here.
