Just curious if anyone in here has the BMW Schnitzer TT-01...

Thinking about picking it up for a budget drifter/ On road whip...

Just to Update the build for TT01, please be informed that the TT01 Midship Convertion Kit did released their Version 3. this includes the CS Gear (1:1:56) with the suspension link in front using C hubs, and rear that can be adjusted the toe-in. Hopes this helps:

Still trying to get this tt01 to work in VTA. Gearing/speed is not an issue, handling is. Given, this car is box stock, running against everything from TC4s to XRay T2s on carpet.
I don't want to put a lot of money in it, and I want to keep it TCS legal. Where should I start? Oil shocks, I'd guess? Steering rack? Or something that will let me adjust toe, camber, etc?
My other option is to abandon it and go to a TC4. (I run a TC4 and am happy with it - this TT01 is for my son)

We have a TT-01 house class and a VTA class where I race. I run both.

The TT-01 is a royal PITA to get setup. The TC4 is a breeze. Even a well setup TT-01 doesn't handle as well as my TC4 right out of the box. That's fine when I'm running against other TT-01s but I'd hate to have to race the good cars with it.

Do you have the standard TT-01 or the TT-01E Type R?

At a minimum, you'll need the adjustable upper arms for setting camber. You'll need the adjustable toe links. I'd recommend red Tamiya springs for the rear and 30wt oil and blue Tamiya springs for the front and 40wt oil. You'll need to adjust ride height, but if you don't have droop screws, you'll have to do that with the shocks. Then there are the Tamiya sway bars. You can spent $80 for the Tamiya sway bars (front and rear) and carbon brace. Associated sway bars are $12 for each.

Kinda what I'm thinking. Years ago I LOVED racing Tamiya Spec (our club went box stock TT-01 only), and that was some of the funnest racing I've ever done. But I think I'll drive myself nuts and my wallet empty trying to make it run against these other touring car chassis'. It is a standard TT-01.

Has anyone drilled out their TT01 shock caps. To get zero rebound on their shocks.

You may want to go back to the Spec racing, Its a growing class up here in the NY/NJ/EPA area, all we basically change on the chassis is the gearing
We run a 540J motor and change the tires
Like you said Its the most fun we have up here on 4 wheels!

Default TT-01 ES ready Chassis

Hi Guys..

want to give TT01 racing a shot....We are allowed to use HPI bodies too....so I was going to put together a TT01 chassis with an HPI acura NSX body...


I was going to spring for the Porsche GT3 as I need the light kit...

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...0&I=LXWSP4&P=K



But, after seeing way cheaper light kits at Horizon and other places (esp. ones that run off the reciever, not the lipo battery)...


And since I am using an HPI GT body I figured why not go for this


http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...0&I=LXAEEM&P=K


But I read on Wiki the E-S versions (the RTR stuff) use cheaper parts...


Can anyone verify this as to what parts if any?


Thanks


Harry

All sorts of cheaper parts. Friction shocks, fixed length steering arms, arm mounts without droop screws, etc...

If you're going racing, spring for the TT-01E Type R kit. Lose the lights. Your fellow racers will dislike you for them anyway...

Hi Crisp...

believe it or not, we are not using TCS rules...has to be a basic E type car with GT body, friction shocks, etc...

no R or D chassis's..ONLY hop ups is the alum drive shaft, motor mount and BB's....


AND, we are required to run lights LOL..


So I wanted to know if the XB RTR chassis has any cheaper parts than the standard E chassis kit like the Porsche I linked...F

I was searching the thread and you guys gloss over alot of questions...

I found Turnigy Nano Tech battery that fits TT-01's according to the comments section. Are there any 5000mah lipos that work? I believe in TCS you are limited to 6500mah.
