If anybody is interested or would like to make any comments on my for sale ad, here is a link. FS: Tamiya TT-01 Type E Drifter

I would like some more advice on pricing. How much would you pay for the car I have shown?

Using right now for servo is FUTABA 3003, Any ideas to try to fix this would be helpful
Check the end point settings on your control for turning left
Sounds as if you got it set too low

I think your price might be high for a roller. The Chassis for Tamiya TT-01D the drift version has adjustable arms and oil filled shocks. From looking at the pictures this is a standard TT-01 chassis with PVC pipe tires. Does it come with light unit? If it does state it.

Just built a TT-01 kit. The RD Sport BRZ. I have some extra screws. Is it now normal for Tamiya to give extra screws?

The absolute essentials are full ball bearings and the aluminum driveshaft.

Thats probably the only needed upgrades as well.
Its too easy to spend silly money upgrading the TT, better off to save for a TB03.

Yes, I agree with this statement. The TB-03 is a much better platform.

Unless, of course, you're racing in a TT-01 class. Which makes comments like this in the TT-01 forum wholly unwarranted.

Sorry, but these kind of comments bug me. People tend to forget that there may be legitimate reasons for wanting to make their TT-01 better.

Telling them to save up for a better car, doesn't really help.
