Yes, and it's a complete pig.

I did however, get stuck running it as a RWD car one day. It worked pretty well that way, but you really have to watch your throttle when exiting corners. Definitely had more speed, probably due to lower driveline losses.

Hello,

I just picked up one of these and I see people are using the carbon fiber upper deck. Can this be used on the E model? or is the new top deck on the E equivalent to the carbon fiber top deck?

If so, can you use the sway bars with the new E deck?

Thanks

I have had a TT01 with the graphite upper deck, and I currently have an "E." I think they are similar, although the "E" upper deck may be just a fraction heavier. I can't answer your second question.

i run one you can't gear with tamiya gears i went to 64 pitch gears with a spur gear adapter part #tb0414 from 3 racing works great. the gears are 78 spur 47 pinon for a fdr of 4.31 it take a little mod work but not much. back in this thread there is some talk about this i think the guy was f1 larry he has pic of what he did with a stock spur gear to do the same thing. the tt01 work ok for this it is a little slow but very tough it can take a beating.i have been running one this whole season.

The Carbon Fiber Upper deck was released a long time ago. But when the Type E was released, Tamiya didn't release an updated version for the E.

To answer you, no, it can't be used with the Type E (unless you find a way to mount the steering).

And no, I don't think you can use the sway bar with the new E deck. What I suggest is that you get the suspension arms for the TT01R or TT01D. With those, you can mount the sway bars on the gearbox.

Can someone tell my why on Tamiya's website:

http://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/fe...article-id=415

it says about the front carbon damper stay:

"In addition, when paired with dampers from the M Chassis Aluminum Damper Set (54000), you can use the new generation of low nose bodies as seen on the TA05 IFS and TB03 chassis."

Question is, for mounting Tamiya's low nose bodies, what's the difference between using the M Chassis Aluminum Damper set and any other dampers? Is it the length or some other reason?

In other words, if you wanted to use the low nose bodies, are you limited to the M Chassis Aluminum dampers?

You can use the super short plastic Mini shocks too- same assembled length. The long regular sedan shocks- TRF or plastic- are just too long to fit.

Your info is flawed. I use the Tamiya 55 spur with an hpi 35 pinion to get a 4.09 gear ratio with my 17.5 brushless. I guess your info would be correct if your still using the stock chasis. I am using the 3racing TT01 chasis.
