Ryan,
are you still using the stock bk101 esc? If so, you might cook it with a 12 turn motor.I did.Many people have been very lucky and not. I recommend the dynamite tazer 12 esc.I am using it and it works great and is cheap.you can gear that combo 61/21 or 22 and get good top end with acceleration.Or give up acceleration for top speed and go 58/23.

H there.
Can anyone confirm bearing sizes for Type E

I also need to know the X thickness(width) for what I have below.

20 metal shield ball bearings:

- 5mm x 11mm - 12ea
- 8mm x 12mm - 4ea
- 5mm x 8mm - 4ea

I am not sure where you are going to order them, but many places on the net and Ebay offer prepackaged bearing sets for the TT01E. I think the 8x12 bearings are 3.5mm wide and the 5x11 are 4mm wide. But, please double check. My source of information was Boca Bearings.

Thanks for the response. No I picked up a combo on ebay, I figure its good enough. I have heard it is decent which bc all i want is fun I was being very conservative with my cash. I got the traxxas 12T titan motor and the XL-5 esc. I will look into the shorter gears 61/21,22 all I am doing is drifting with it so top speed really isnt needed but I guess stretching out the gears a little would help the motor run cooler. I will watch my temps and play with the gears a bit. Thanks again!
BTW how fast are you getting with the 12t motor. Again I am not using it for high speed passes or anything just curious is all. Would it keep up with my nitro inferno GT running upper 50's low 60's in MPH?

EDIT: I am sure I will probably figure this out this weekend when I swap electronics but what is the stock gearing?

I am running in the 40's with the 12t double.I takes time to wind up, but it goes ok.The tt01 is a bit too heavy,but it is very tough.I have hit in the 60's using a 7t single vantage surikarn motor with a 4200nimh pack and a novak gtx esc.Went like hell.Really fast,was geared 55/25 I think.

Can anyone tell me if the tt-01D Kit version rx-7 comes with oil fillable shocks? kit number #58388

Also what the part numbers are i will need to convert it to a tt-01E ??

Wanted to sort out options while i order the kit.


Drift-spec modifications include special suspension tuning, full ball bearings, sport-tuned motor, aluminum heat sink, CVA mini shock dampers and short springs.

Does "CVA" mean they can have oil?

You may be able to the Tamiya website and find the model and then click on the parts list.

yes, the CVA dampers are oil filled shocks.

Well, i got around to swapping in my 12T motor couple days ago, I ran with the new motor for less then 1 battery cycle and my gears are starting to slip and strip?

It is still the stock spurs and pinions. But why would they be stripping. I did have a hell of a time getting the black plastic peice that holds the gears in place back on, and I thought I got it put back together right. BUT.... apparently not. If I tighted it down all the way and really wrench it down then the car wont move so I backed the 4 screws that hold it down off maybe 1/2 turn and it works but i am guessing that the gear is moving slightly and causing the stripping. Has anyone run into this and what can I do to fix it? I am pretty sure I am going to get new gearing but I dont know if that will help.

On my inferno gt 2 speed I have to mesh the gears but with the big 12t motoor in there it sits where it is and don't really have any wiggle room to mesh. Is there a way to properly do that for the tt01 or are the gears "meshed" when the motor is in place?

Sorry for the newb questions.... this thing is a blast with the 12t motor and its fun to drift around with. But I only got to run it maybe 20 mins or so before it made the sound like the gears were slipping.

Ryan, make sure the motor is rotated correctly to account for the larger spur..I have had no probles running stupid fast motors in my car.There is a diagram that comes in the instruction manual for motor rotation .Good news is parts are really cheep for these cars.

Thanks I will look into it. But I am using stock gears so the spur isn't any bigger?....

Anyone know if the tamiya medium narrow rims fit sorex tyres ok?

Also i have a slight problem with my tt-01 , the front prop shaft joint that goes into the front gear box wobles and causes vibration/ loss of rpm(badly, enough that the shaft hits the steering linkage when reving). My kit has had orig tamiya ball bearings since new, it appears on disasembly that the joint is loose in the bearings a bit and the bearings are also a bit loose/movment in the chassis gearbox half. ( i have checked the bearing dimensions in the manual and measured them with calipers and they are fine.

The alum prop shaft i am running is also quite sloppy in the joint side too side and front to back (its a top cad brand)

Has any one a fix to this issue?
