Yea, that's what i did and i decided to mount the pinion 1 position less..i.e. for 25T, i use the 24T slot..to get a better mesh position with the spur..using a 13T mod motor now...so fast its hard to control..but the spur does not strip anymore! Rally time now..heh..

Kindly share with me your experience which tyre type i.e. slick, semi-slick or radial will give better traction on new carpet? Also, what insert combination. The reason I ask this is to reduce my cost for having too many tyre sets. Thanks in advance.

Foam is not allowed in TAC. Only Tamiya tires. This year TAC final will be held in Taiwan. I'm participating in local qualifying.

Hi all. I'm very new to the world of elec R/Cs and was chasing a bit of advice in regards to my new TT01. At the moment its bone standard except for bearings and shocks.

I will be setting it up as a weekend drift car since the local place doesn't allow nitro's in the drift.

I've already been told that a alloy/carbon tailshaft should be my next upgrade, but I was looking for the name of the part/wheel/cog that I can hear grinding and jumping teeth whenever I go from hard acceleration to braking/reverse.

Cheers.

Wanting to fix my universal shaft on the front of my TT01 chassis. Current using front one way, adjustable upper arm and steering turnbuckles. I found that the shaft is long that obstruct me from fixing in knuckles on the arms.
I got two questions here
1) do i need to buy a different cup (OP.950) for the front one way to fix the universal shaft?
2) The shaft given in the package is not in the correct length? The number engrave on the shaft is 39

Please help. Thanx.

39 is the correct length for TT01. There are 2 type of metal cup for TT01. "Big" cup is for the standard plastic dogbone. There is another "small" one for UJ. Hope this help.

Also, can anyone point me at a guide, or tell me how to lock the rear diff in a TT01. Apparently it will also aid somewhat in drifting.

Sorry, I don't know the part no. I'm sure your LHS can assist you on this.

If you're using stock bevel gear diff, you can use thick diff oil to lock it. Hope this help.

If you want to lock it. Try using glue gun and inject glue stick inside the gear and cover it and wait until it dries. then try your new locked diff..
