I ran a 5.5T brushless on my TT01-D using 25/55 once and it ripped my pinions and spurs 3 times in 1 night. Running on a 9T Brushless is safer but it depends on the traction of your tire too. Too much traction can rip the pinion, spurs or both. The punch of the programme card and throttle precentage should take into consideration too.

I'm using hobbywing 9t brushless, so far so good...

If everyone has a TT-01 it would be fine. If it's open chassis, then probably not.

Casey Belarde - I agree with Stitchy. If everyone ran it as a spec class with a fixed gear ratio it would be fun, but I'm guessing everyone won't agree on that. You may want to look at the Cyclone "S."

so what are it's down fall???
not very tunable??
I know it's not going to be like the old T2 LOL

my other thing I want to try and prove to other racers is you don't need to spend loads of money on a car or is that going to be completely wrong with this car???
driver and set-up is what will win!
I'll check in to the cyclone s

I know if we get it going we will limit the FDR

I can appreciate what you are doing, trying to prove that high $$ chassis don't necessarily win. For example, we just finished our second point series for RCGT with separate expert and sportsman classes. In expert, the top two cars were plastic tubbed chassis "cheap cars" (the Ofna JL-10 and Tamiya TB-03). #3 was a Cyclone TC. Sportsman class was won by a carbon deck car, but followed by a TA-05 and a TB-03...

Unfortunately, the TT-01's gearing limitation is probably the biggest thing keeping it from being a real RCGT contender. Lack of chassis and suspension tuning options may or may not be a drawback. I also see a hot stock motor or 17.5 (running at competitive speeds) tearing up its drivetrain if not properly hopped up. By then, it's probably not worth it.

I'd say mid range cars like the Cyclone S, TB-03, TA-05, or JL-10 would be your best bet.

If you want to race with you will have to buy a few hop ups which include the following: the aluminum shaft, bearings, plastic oil shocks, & adjustable turn steering turnbuckles. None of those are very expensive. This summer a friend of mine and I ran TT01's in our parking lot series. We used the above mentioned hop ups and the tires of our choice. I ran the HPI X Pattern Pro compound, which worked well. We agreed on the 25/55 gear ratio and ended up running the Traxxas Stinger motor, which made them really quick. The gears are not expensive. You can also buy adjustable arms, ball diffs, a one way, sway bars, etc. I ran the TT01E and my friend ran a TT01. We each broke one steering knuckle over a tenth race series. We ran in the same heats with the TransAm guys with the brushless motors and expensive ESC's. We seldom beat them, but we had a lot less invested. Here's a website that is selling TT01's at very good prices, some come with painted bodies, http://www.rocousa.com/tamiyasale.htm

I've learned in on-road, you have to spend *some* money to be really competitive lol

If you want to gain gearing options for the TT01 you have to dump the tub chasis for the 3racing carbon fiber chasis. Right now I have a gearing of 55/35 which gives me a gear ration of 4.1 thats the lowest I can go unless I switch out my gearing for 64 pitch or 48. 48 being the louder of the two.

Default 3racing M03 conversion

I'm in the middle of building mine. Just waiting on some mini length universals.

It looks like a lot of fun and is easy to build. However, beware, you don't get all the aluminium parts from the picture in the kit. I got the aluminium shaft separately. The plastic one I didn't think would last.

Great keep us updated.


Any pics?


I was reading up and i found that the HPI Cup Racer is adjustable to 225mm, so my Roadster shell could well fit on that chassis with a few body mount tweaks.

So right now i'm a little torn between the 3racing conversion or the cup racer.

So it'd be great to see some pics and read some reports how how the car handles with the new chassis.


Cheers
Mark
