The rounded edge hard cases that fit in an M-chassis work well.

Do you think this is necessary?
Your friend may have point although it's not those ribs that are causing vibrations. The normal vibrations from the motor, the uneven track surface, warped wheels and the bumps caused by going over kerbs and barriers may force the ribs to dig into the soft-cased pack. With the whole pack resting on those reletively small ribs, this is is not hard to imagine

Thanks

So do you suggest I even the surface? Since I am using the car for rallying so I guess there will be a lot of vibrations

What do I have to upgrade on the chassis to run a strong engine (let's say brushless) ? I mean that the engine doesn't destroy the car

Does anyone have a spare tt-01 tire foam insert handy? I really need to know the dimensions. Racing on Saturday and I kinda need tires, and none of the LHS have the foams in stock, so I'm gonna cut my own.

Thanks.

Default Sloppy steering and ball wear

I've always thought my tt-01 had pretty loose steering. It's not super bad but I've noticed some chassis seem to have a lot less play in them when you grab the wheels and give them a wiggle.

I noticed the play was getting worse a couple of days ago and unscrewed the bit where the front lower and upper arms are connected to the knuckle/uprights. The plastic balls/P7 part (which I've found from looking at other people's chassis are often made of metal) are super worn. This is causing the knuckles and subsequently the front wheels to sit much closer to the ground than they normally do and leads to the suspension only having 4-5 mm of travel before the chassis bottoms out at the front.

My two questions are:

1) Does anyone know what these ball bits are called and if there are any metal replacement balls I can get for the TT-01? I've had a browse on RC mart but haven't had any luck so far...

2) Also, I've read about steering linkage hop-ups (I assume to tighten the other general play in the steering) but haven't been able to find any on RC-mart. Has anyone seen these for the TT-01?

Cheers!

To improve your steering you can try the TT01E steering rack.
