I agree with toomany. I have a TT01E and I like it lot. I've seen kids running the TT01 and they can handle rough driving.

What online stores do you guys recommend for purchasing spares? NONE of my LHS's stock Tamiya parts (or kits, for that matter!) in the Dallas area if you can believe that!

I think you have to compare prices. You can look at Ultimate Hobbies, Stormer Hobbies, Tower Hobbies, Tamiya America & Speedtechrc. One of the better ways is to Google the part number. You put the prefix "tam' and then the number without a space. You can also Google the number by putting Tamiya and a space and then the number. My local hobby shops will order parts for me. It's sometimes cheaper than paying shipping.

i run my tt-01 as a rally car. i also have a rs4 rally. the tt-01 really bounces a lot more, not in a good way. hard to go fast with the wheels off the ground. and steer too. anyone have any long travel shock ideas? or any other ideas? the car is getting heavier with all the rally mods, maybe that has something to do with it. maybe time to make it back into a street car and keep the rs4 for rally.

So I was building a TT-01 (#58330 Nismo Z) for display and testing () purposes and discovered that two of the large bevel gears for the diff had splines in them instead of the slots for the gearbox joints! (the other two were the correct slotted ones)

This ever happen to anybody?

No need for 'scripts' just repeating what drivers are finding. Why don't you try the Gecko tyres on your TT-01 or any 1/10th electric touring/Sedan car on asphalt with 12mm hex wheel fitment and see how it relates to the Radio Race Car International May Issue article. They do offer lots more grip than rubber tyres and last far longer than other foam tyres. You can find them at A Mains Hobbies - try product codes: AR10FE037 on the front and AR10FE035 on the rear.

Does anyone know if the TT-01's with the rally bodies (Impreza WRC, etc) have a different (higher) suspsension than the regular "street car" versions? Or are they the same?

If u really wanted to do rally with the chassis, then u hv to change the shock to "v" version.
Part no. 50598, item no. 2 (check yr manual)
And its that simple, and chassis clearance will be much higher.
