MatsNorway, I see the pictures, thanks.

Just some updates, I replaced the Novak GTB with a Nosram StockSpec ESC, the TeamPowers with a Speedpassion 13.5 and enlarged the battery slot to accept square packs.



To improve steering response, especially on the chicanes, I replaced the stock Futaba 3003 with a Futaba 9550 high speed low profile servo.



More info here.

Nice, i decided to keep my oval battery holder.

If i get a hold on new chassi and some more batteries i will consider doing the same as you.

Im checking in on your page every now and then.

any problems with traction roll?

you could make the servo laying down like i did.

MatsNorway no problem with traction roll even on a high grip asphalt track with full tire traction compound. Whoever designed the TL01 over a decade ago is a very good engineer.

This coming weekend I will revert back to the Team Powers motor and see if I can improve on my laptimes. The Speedpassion was only running 130 degrees, too cool and maybe not enough power.

Will try a rear roll bar and test if it will improve rotational speed.

So far the TL01 is very good under low traction conditions. At high traction, the newer TCs and Tekin ESCs have an advantage.

So the opposition only pulls away on the straights?

If you want to buy a new motor you could evaluate the motor by downloading the exel sheet found in the lower end of the first post.

Nice work you guys.

So how much weight did you save MatsNorway after all said and done?

1700 grams before stripping and cleaning. Se first post pictures and you understand.

1250 grams now without 2.4 lrp radio, bodymounts and body.

i could get it down further by remounting the old plastic dampers(unsure they go low enough.), bying a fancy alu main shaft, foam front bumper perhaps, some shorter wires and all the screws. Is the EZrun motor cooling ribs thick? i might be able to remove some weight there.

but its a low cost project for now and the dampers are really nice (if we look away from the fact that the mounting screws are machine tread and the dampers are a bit to big for comfort.)


I have stiffened up some more as it had flex front wheel towards rear wheel on same side. Unsure how important that is tho...

The 9T is the fastest spec allowed in the class i will run.

Nice to see lots of space in the esc area. gives me room for adjusting weight distribution.

The carbon i got for free from a enthusiastic shop employee.

Does the car get wider with the LA parts?
i don`t want that because i have no space to the fenders with my offset wheels.

Hi guys sorry for lack of update, have not raced the TL01 in a while.

But I did dust it off and raced last Sunday, on a technical carpet track inside a mall. Surprisingly without changing my asphalt setup, managed to qualify 3rd on the grid in the 13.5T brushless class.

+ YouTube Video

Mine is the white car with with wing. Car was actually better than my driving.

Default about the sway bars

i tried installing op324 onto the car, but the front steering rods get in the way of the bars' tie rods and the rear doesn't have anything to hold it down to the chassis.

do i need additional parts??

Long shot here but, does Tamiya make a rear toe-in upright for the LA arms? I know they have a 2 degree for the two piece arms.

Hi guys, will be racing the TL01 again for the next 8 weeks. But undecided on what class to race it in. I could set it up for the Novice (540) class or 13.5T (no boost) class for my daughter to race in or in the 13.5T (boost) class for myself.

Decisions decisions.



p.s. I tried the Hobbywing ESC with boost (cheap at around $90USD with program card). Very fast. Worried that the carbon prop shaft might not hold up. But so far so good.

540 class with 23t and the speed tuned gear set. 13.5 might eat the gears after a while. I still love my TL-01.

That carbon shaft will not last with some decent power.

And if you are going 13.5T you will need to get a hard coated pinion. You have that i assume...

And also the car will be too lose in the rear at those speeds.

mainly because of the weight distribution i think.

fully balanced mine will have 600grams front and 700grams+ at the back.

i wish it had more in the front.

Motor/esc Ezrun 9T lipo stick pack.

Acutally i also have alu dampers in front with plastic dampers at the back. And i also got alu hub and C arm. so its quite rear heavy.

Hi Mats, my rear is pretty planted. Maybe because we race on a smooth asphalt track with good tire traction compound. Gear diff rear and spool in front.
