I was going to get these hop up parts from Banzai:

54501 TT02 Alum Propeller Shaft
54502 TT02 Alum Propeller Joint
54539 TT02B Full Turnbuckle Set
51527 TT02 A Parts - Upright
51528 TT02 B Parts - Sus Arm
51529 TT02 C Parts - Cup Joint
51530 TT02 D Parts - Motor Mount

Can someone please tell me if something here is unnecessary or of there is something else I should get? I'm getting the spares just cause they are kind of cheap but if you guys don't think I need them I won't buy them.

I was trying to decide between the TT02 and a used TB03 but I think the TB03 is a bit too much care for me at the moment and I think I'd like to try racing in the novice Tamiya class.

Also, can someone tell me how fast the stock motor is in the TT02 kit? The description just says 540 brushed motor but i'm not sure how many turns or anything like that.
No worries mate, happy to help.

In regards to those hop ups / spares I pretty much agree with everything there as a good starting point however the turnbuckle set listed I believe is for the TT-02'B' (Buggy) model and hence will not fit the sedan models.
Also I have the Tamiya alloy prop shaft but have been happier with the one from Eagle Racing as its shaped to fit the prop joints (Google 'Broadtech' and have a look through their stuff, slow website but great products and service). Have a look at the pics in one of my albums as i've fitted this to one of my TT02B's.

While your on broadtech maybe have a look at some oil shocks as well? Perhaps alloy steering blocks / uprights and a front one-way?

Not sure whether you'll really need the D parts, can't see much there that would break.

I don't have any experience with the TB03 but it looks to be a more advanced chassis.
The TT-02 is good but at the end of the day it is an entry level model.
Just be wary that by the time you've hopped up the TT-02 you may end up spending the sort of money that would have bought you a better chassis to begin with.
I don't mind doing that because for me that's half the fun!

The stock 540 'silver can' brushed motor is good, you'll have fun with it, but it is on the slower side of everything that's available now days. Don't quote me but I think it's around 27 turns.
For a nice little boost and only few dollars off Banzai you could get a Tamiya Sport Tuned 'black can' motor that I think is around 23 turns and will still work with the stock Tamiya TEU-105BK ESC.

I've written a review of the TT-02B buggies that may be of interest / relevant if you want to head over to the electric off road section.

Another option you might want to consider is to wait for the drift spec TT-02D (Google 'Tamiaya TT02D') which should be coming out soon (Feb?). It will give you your oil shocks, bearings, sport tuned motor, motor heat sink and some other bling probably cheaper than buying them separately. You'd need to switch the tyres over to on-road tyres though.

Good luck!

Hey all,

As I mentioned above, there is information on the net about the TT-02D drift spec potentially being available in Feb.

Upgrades vs the stock TT-02 include:
* Ball bearings (guessing not the steering though)
* Oil shocks
* Sport tuned motor
* Blue motor heat sink
* Silver brake discs
* Blue alloy battery strap
* Super drift tech tyres

No adjustable camber though which I think is dissapointing, kind of a core thing for a drifter.

What I was most interested in though is the pictures showing what looks to be a different material used (dark grey as opposed to black) for parts like the suspension towers.
Do you think this is just a prototype model (seems unlikely given the parts look identical to the stock TT-02) or perhaps are these the reinforced parts mentioned earlier in this thread?

Cheers,
Crouch

The grey parts are the re-enforced plastic parts. These will be available separately

I did remove the turnbuckle set and added the basic Tamiya oil shocks from Banzai. I do realize that all these add ons drives up the price to TB03 levels but ultimately anything but the TT01 or TT02 wasn't an option for me since I want to try Spec/Novice class.

Cool.

I also recommend a tamiya high torque servo saver as well, to protect your servo from damage.

Make sure to set the gearing to TCS spec and add a fan blowing into the commutator hole and the motor can. You might need to buy pinions and spurs to get to the gearing. Do not add aluminum motor heat sink as they do nothing but trap heat. Will see you on saturday.

Looks very nice

Finished my body in the meantime, decided to do a simple design.
I painted the Rims with Revell color, black and aluminium.

Also painted the brake disc with Revell color aluminium.
I think it looks quite nice
A picture of my TT02 is also attached.

Just to clear the air -

Banazi Hobby Cart both based in Japan have Japanese market kits/rtr's. The kits do not come with a ESC, but the RTR's do, obviously it wouldn't be an RTR now would it without one?

RCMart carries what I am going to assume is NA/EU market kits and do include a ESC.

Have fun, I need to get some stuff done around here because I have no actual workspace and need to not create some but just get rid of stuff or put it in its proper place.

Clean build Stefan!
Like it a lot.
Also nice electronics installation!
Will you use it for Racing?

Br,
Matthias

Maybe, I don't know yet. I bought it because of the body in first place
But there's a series called 'Youngtimer-Trophy' with very simple rules:
- Body of the original must be manufactured between 1966 and 1988
- No additional parts on the body except the ones included in the body kit
- Tires to use are the ones delivered with the kit or the HPI Vintage tires, but no disk rims
- Scale look preferred, so no airbrusehd flames or something like that
- Motor to use is the Carson Cup Machine
(all for the TT-class, M-Chassis-Class has slightly different rules)

More information here: http://rc-youngtimer-trophy.blogspot.de/

I like that series a lot because of its simplicity... maybe I'll give it a try

I have a question about my TT02 build. I just finished and noticed a slight problem and I'm not sure what I did wrong.










My problem is that my rear wheels don't stick out far enough it seems. I followed the Standard kit instructions and the body came with the kit so I'm not sure why its not flush? The front is better but the rear seems really pushed in. Now, there is an option to make a wide build but I didn't do that becuase it doesn't come with that piece C6 for the front wheels. It DOES come with piece A13 which is wider rear wheel hub. Why does it come with the piece for the rear but not the front?

Should I just install the wider A13 hubs to the rear? The Standard instructions say to install the A14 hubs but you can see how far in the wheels are.

Any advice?

Here is what its supposed to look like:

Yes, you just need to fit them for the rear, the wheels are correct for the front as they are.

The instructions at the start tell you to check wheelbase and width so you can spot this when building.

The Capri shell is fantastic!

Just build a TT02 with my young son last night. Since his Traxxas vehicles are waterproof, we wanted to try and make this one waterproof as well, just for fun. We built it with a Traxxas waterproof servo and installed a Traxxas waterproof radio box in place of the kit's radio box. Still have the kits ESC, but will eventually get the Traxxas XL-5. This is one build where we actually wanted to use all the nylon bearings!
