Unhappy TT-01

Hi guys I just picked up a tt01 chassis and I have a few questions. I have a castle sidewinder sct brushless system and was curious if I could run it? the second question is I lost my spur gear stopper and I can not find a place to buy one any ideas? Thanks, Ben

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.
Of course if you in a TT01 race class then thats a different story. But there are probhably rules that limit the permitted upgrades anyway in a TT01 class.

But I'll continue to make those comments because they are true.
Locally, guys are spending $$$$ on tt01 upgrades. Some as much as a $500+ just on upgrades, & are left with a RC car that still isnt very good(being honest) & is really not worth very much at all.
That really bugs me.

Some guys want to upgrade just for the fun of it, or for a project, again different story. Done that myself (& spent alot of money in the process)

Upgrading (spending $$$$) for the purpose of making this car better is honestly just money down the drain. Apart from the few worthwhile upgrades like bearings and metal centershaft.
If you really want something better than the car you have (TT01), get something else.
Lets not tell novices it can be made into something its not.

A nother newbie question. I have the BRZ RD Sport kit and I can figure out if the rear end is narrow or wide. Currently I have the wide spacers on the rear wells and the wheels fill the fender wheels nicely but the nuts to hold the wheels on are barely on the threads. Any thoughts

get a tootbrush and wipe scrub the edges of the tires and rim with soapy water...let air dry..

Any of the modern glues will work...just be aware that thin glue will set really fast...I like the Losi med, works well for me..


Wrap a piece of electrical tape around the tire before you glue...for each side if you are doing bigger tires....peel back the edges and carefully feed the glue in...let dry for an hour...

Default Tamiya #51396 or HPI #7352 body?

Hi All,
Looking at getting a new 190mm BMW M3 GT body shell for a TT-01. There are the Tamiya made ones (also lightweight version) and the HPI ones. I like the detailing on the HPI one better. Has anyone tried to use this body shell and did they have any problems / modifications to do?
Thanks.

Just a few posts back I posted this:



Works like a champ!

I will say that I have the extended rear axles and larger hexes on mine.

What are you doing with it?

Just know what Spur you're going to want before you start. Not fun to swap out. Best to put the right one on to begin with.
