Nozauta619, The FF02 is legal in GT1, GT2 and GT3. Personally ,I have very little experience with this chassis. I suggest you contact Tamiya or get in touch with the folks at Burien Racing up in Washington State. www.burienracing.com. They have a great Tamiya racing program and they only deal in Tamiya parts.

wow, i have a fun project on the way...

i bought a TL-01 for $5(yes, $5) and some one bet me that if i raced that car in sportsman stock sedan at socal i would come in last place

the car is stock(except the ae screws throughout the car, and the striped spur gear) and my goal is to get a podium with the car in sportsman stock at socal(that is fairley easy with my TC3, but now we are speaking of a TL-01). I will do some testing with the car next weekend and possibally race it the following weekend(hopefully by then the car will be up to par)

what motors are you guys using in stock(i would use one of my monsters, but i heard that the rpm is too much for the m-03(and they have the same gears), hence they are getting too hot and melting the gears, but you guys use what for a stock motor?p2k2?

any help is apricated
thanks

You can run nearly any stock motor in them, just make sure the pinion meshes correctly. Gear it at 21 tooth to start (Monster right?) without the speed tuned gears (too tall [low numerically]). You're gonna need shocks and the Long arm suspension kit to come close. The TL01 won't roll through the corners like your TC3 even with light weight shafts. Keep everything mounted as low as possible, the CG is really high in a TL01, and the roll center is pretty low. They have a very evil tendency to swap ends under braking (I think someone else mentioned this) and like a little softer tire than the TC3.

You can get pretty close to a TC3, but you really gotta want to.

Exclamation hay looking to upgraid my motor in tlo1 what the best 4 racing?

hay i got a tlo1 a fare while ago and i have only 1 hop up. I have some speed tuned gears and i had a bit of a chat with the guy at local hobby store and he says that u can only have a limmited minium of turns due to the plastic gears and melting at a high tempreture. I think i want to stick with the 19t pinion but have heard somewhere that u can buy aliminum moter mounts and helps if u want diffrent tothed pinions other then the 19t,21 and the 23t what would be the best?. thanks

Tamiya made quite a few TL-01 rally kits which were basically the same as the onroad kits so you don't really need to "convert" to Tarmac rally. For offroad you'd obviously want to change the tires to rally blocks or something similar.

I noticed there were some models that were "TL-01RA." Did those have different arms. shocks and other parts? I'm guessing it did to probably give more suspension travel. Does anyone know what the differences between the "RA" and regular versions are?

There is one RA model and 2 LA models. Anyway the RA version uses suspension components from the LA cars.

Long arms
C hubs
Rear uprights
Front knuckles
Standard length TC shocks

DIrt is main enemy for "wet" gear mesh of TL-01. Once dirt or sand particles enter gearbox, (depend on particle size) it would initiate "chain reaction" damage all gear within, it would emit teerrible noise signal brader .. Then sealing rear gearbox properly is a must for rally, bottom and top side can simply sealed with attaching one or two layers of good quality paper tape or kind of that, and for inner side (behind ESC hole) which the surface is contoured, silicone glue may works as simple semi-permanent sealer.
