Default inspiring

your stories and testimonials about the TT-01,regarding how durable and competitive, with other high-end brands are all true.

this will motivate people who are curious and want to enter this hobby.

also thanks to Tamiya for still supporting the entry level market/racers.

i have a havok 17.5 brushless on my tto1 and wondering if a 52t spur and 26 or 27t pinion will work on it?

I tried to install a 52T spur in my TT01E and ir rubbed the chassis. Do you have to reduce the thickness of the spur to make it work?

Yes, of the Tamiya spurs that I've tried, the 61,58, and 55 work directly. The 52T spur coming from the F201 car requires 2 alterations to make it fit into a TT01.

1) the shaft diameter on the 52T spur is 6mm (I think) while the TT-01's axle is goes over is 5mm (I think). I initially wrapped electrical tape over the axle and poked a hole through it to put the holding pin through. Cluedgy, but it made the spur fit snug; had to trim away excess tape outside of the spur to prevent rubbing and drag. Another guy here put a 6mm spacer into the spur and drilled a 5mm hole. I don't remember how I did it but last week I noticed that I had a nice spacer that fit snub and clean.

2) The outer wall on a 52T spur where it goes over the axle is too wide for the TT-01's chassis where it cradles the spur and axle and so the 52T spur rubs. I put the 52T spur up against my belt sander and carefully thinned the outside wall. Too little and it will still rub, too much and the wall will loose its strength to have the spur stay on the axle.

If the thing wasn't so embedded into my car right now I post a picture. But where it was rubbing just sand that part thinner.

To write this post I scanned posts 7xx-871 where several of us here were trying to figure this out. Struck by how much trial and error and mistakes we made, but after bouncing ideas off each other this was the method that worked.

Which tt-01 is the one to get? For spec TCS (canada) racing.

TT01E has everything you need for spec racing.

damn!!!!!!........ some guy told me that it would just slip right in..........wait are you talking about the tto1E?i have the original TTO1, or do i still have to make some changes? so you are saying that the 52 (f201)is a little thicker than the stock tto1s spur?or am i wrong? im new and dont really understand. can you explain how to fit the 52 spur gear into the tto1 chassis? what do i have to do? what are the easiest procedures.
p.s. i dont have a belt sander.

Both the TT-01 and the TT-01E have the same chassis part number listed on the Tamiya web-site (#51001), and since the part that it rubs against is the chassis both of the models should have the same problem. Nope, the 52T spur does not just drop in.

The collar on the 52T spur is thicker than the correct spurs.

As for the easiest procedure, the sanding method is the only one I understand, and the belt/bench sander made it go from a really hard job to just a hard job. I'd find a friend with a bench sander or maybe a dremel with a sanding drum.

Default curious on 52T spur

I dunno,.. cause our racetrack is just a regular size basketball court with the usual firehose as track layout, so as you can imagine it's fairly technical, due to space availability.

just wondering why do want to install a 52T spur on your TT01?

I mean isn't 55T fast enough?
I bet it's slow on acceleration, compared to a 61T right? specially on tight courses.
except if you guys are racing on a huge racetrack. definitely 52T will have an edge.

and just how fast can a TT01 go on a 52T/30T?
