Because regular ball studs, the threads portion is only halfway into the upright, then when you hit the board it applies a lot of pressure on the ball stud and the weaker link is the upright so the hole becomes oval and then breaks.

I think I just solved my problem by analyzing it!

I'll let you know, my next race is the 16th of january.

Gosh that is bad news for me

I was so hoping the TT-01E uprights would minimize the breakage. I guess I'll just have to learn to drive better and stock up on the parts bag in the meantime.

Not to rain on your parade, but I have been running ball studs that were actually longer, by about 1 mm, than the hole they screw into in the original TT-01 uprights. Hope it works out for you.

Buy the TT01E uprights they are a lot stronger
than the standard TT01 ones!

They are reinforced with new braces and are made of a new material.

Just do it!!! LOL

In 2009 we had a TT01 class at the local parking lot races and I ran my TT01E all summer and I broke one upright on a practice lap without a body on.

We're sponsoring a couple of local rookies to run the TT01 spec class at the upcoming TCS. Can anyone tell me if there's any difference between the three legal tires?

Racing Slicks (50454), Racing Radials (50419), Racing Semi Slick Tires (50810)

Thanks!

Slicks are the ultimate grip on carpet,
Semi slicks are pretty good too,
Radials should be used outside.

All of that depends if you use inserts or not.

Best regards

If I'm not mistaken, all three have the same dimension and are made of the same rubber compound. Each tire is suitable in different conditions. Some would even surprise you. Ex. In the Tamiya Asian Championships, they ran the TT01 on an indoor carpet track. The best tire for all of them were the radials.

Depends whether tire sauce is allowed or not.
I allways loved the radials.
Radials and slicks are the same compound, I'm pretty sure of that.
The semi's allways tended to react differently imo.

Also on any of them the more laps you get on them the better. Clean them after every run. Do what you can to soften them up. I used simple green to condition and clean them and they got more grip with age. I used the slicks on my sons car. The car has won 2 of the last 3 years at the Trackside Regional. 2008 with my son and last year as a loaner.

380 can maybe too small for the motor mount. Im sure itll have the power, but the 550 can was also a very tight fit and very high gear splitting power lol.

If it fits then why not I guess.


The drivetrain in these cars is very solid and will handle pretty much anything you throw at it.

The TT-01 though is not much when it comes to handling so anything faster than a 17.5T tends to make the car quite difficult to drive.

The front & rear bulkheads, and shock towers, are also much stronger on the TT01E.

Because of the limited gear ratio of the TT-01, I doubt it.

Yes, you can keep on pace. All about momentum for you.
