my buddy got a tamiya tt01 rtr for like 170 with an evo body.
Interesting. It's hard to find reasonable TT-01's for a reasonable price. I should just buy the chassis and find the body that I want somewhere else. How fast is shipping from Tamiya America?

im not seasoned enough to be allowed post links but but these numbers in the ebay search bar




just buy an rtr and a new motor and ditch the plastic drive shaft.
maybe some good suspension and you'll be ready to rock.

I would not mess with a tt-01. it seems like hard brittle plastic, and I have never seen one work really well on the track, now i could be wrong i'm just calling it as i see it. At my local track I see a lot of guys who are very fast with tc3's and tc4's I got a team TC3 off ebay for $60 about a year ago that i won a lot of parking lot races with it last summer. You seem like you are fairly new to touring cars so in my opinion get a ready to run TC4 for $240 that comes with everything but a charger and a battery.. get a skycharger for another $60 and a cheap 2c LiPo off ebay for like $20. just make sure to get a low voltage cut off or a digital volt reader as the stock esc has no low voltage cut off for LiPo's remember 3.2 volts per cell is as low as you want to run them, some guys go as low as 3 volts but any lower than that you are risking the battery turning into junk. You will be totally happy with the speed and handling in stock form, and if you are planning on drifting just get some drift tires. best of luck
