Today i had my first test drive with this chassis in my street and i noticed that the car was more stable over my TT-01R E-type allthough my TT-01E has a very good set-up.
Only option parts i used were light weight universals, some titanium and alu screws, alu turnbuckles and a set of TRF mini dampers.
The car feld stable and dialed with tamiya medium narrow radial tires.
I also put my TT-01E and my TT-02 with the same electronics on a weight scale and the TT-02 weights about 40grams less, what's always a good thing
The car is definately worth the money.

@addictedblue

Thanks mate, this is very helpful on fixing my TT02.
Any tips on installing the front arms and knuckles? i just broke 2 sets now because of the fragile build or plastic part of the TT02. this is the only concern i have on TT02 right now. it breaks easily. is it wiser to add anti wear grease on the moving plastic parts?

@primaveralaw

61T from tt01, then use a sand paper to remove the additional plastic until it fits well to the drive shaft knuckle.

HI. This seems to be an awesome setup. Parts for tt02 are quite limited here. Would you be kind enough to provide the part nos. or sizes of the parts you used particularly the universals and the turnbuckles?

Appreciate it.

Here are some part nrs:

53506 39mm light weight swing shaft (TA04)
53499 Wheel axle for assembly universal
53681 Titanium wheel axle for assemblu universal (but this is very expensive)
53500 cross joints for universal

You can also choose for the complete universal set for TA04/TT-01 with part nr 53792 (this is the cheapest solution)

I used tamiya alu 3x23 turnbuckles, don't know the part nr as i allready had these.

Hope this helps you

I don't think ani wear grease on plastiek moving parts is good, this because it attracks dust and will give more wear then normal.
The only tip i can come up with is, practice as much as possible and that way you will have more control over the car and you break less parts.
The plastic parts are indeed soft.
I did use some 0,1 or 0,2x5mm shim plates to have less slop in de suspension parts.

Hope this helps

The 24 hours of jackson moves to the TT02 next year. The car simply came out too late and too few to use this year. but i'm sure after folks here are done with it, we'll know what makes it bomb proof like its predecessor. -R

Will post it later after work. I was thinking to remove the bumber at the back of the car, would it make a big difference on its aero? But will surely reduce big amounth of weight on the car. What are your thoughts on this?

Thx for taking the time to get a picture of the modification.

I personally don't see the point of cutting the rear bumper, the weight gain is maybe about 10gr or so, but is it worth to do so?
What about the strength of that part, possibly it will be ok but i prefer to leave it as it is, but that's just my opinion.

Today i received the high speed gear set for my TT-02 and i've tried to install the 0.4 90T spur from tamiya and it works great.
Been using it with a 48T pinion on motormount position for the 0.6 23T pinion, the gears meshing up as it should be and even the noise of the car is a bit less then normal.
This combination should give your car a ratio of 4.88, it would be equal of a TT-01 using a 55T spur with a 29T pinion (but we all know that this combination is normally not possible)
So the TT-02 can be faster then a TT-01 car, this with a better handling car should give you a benefit at the track

Thanks for sharing this info, seems there are some combinations that work with module 0,4 and the stock motormount!
A bit long for our track running on CE-4 with NimH by law at the moment, but maybe after switching to LIPO next year in our spec class IŽll give that combo a try!

Br,
Matthias
