Yea it drifts pretty good. They make a tt01D that's made for drifting, but you can make any tt01 drift with plastic drift wheels. I take mine to my local drift track and I can compete with the top drivers

I'm new to the TT-01 I got one basically for free that needed a little TLC, it is a TT-01 Type E. Where is a good place to buy wheels and tires? Or what company makes some that fit properly, I am going to run it on aspalt oval / road course track so Im looking for slicks I guess.

Mine also came without a body so I've been looking at either protoform or parma 190mm bodies, I'm guessing those are what would fit this car?

Thanks!

The TT-01, like all other 10th scale EP touring cars, have standard 12mm hex hubs, hence, companies (such as Ride, Sweep, Sorex, etc.) that manufacture wheels and tires for 10th scale touring cars will go in fine.

As for bodyshells, the TT-01 will accept those shells that you've stated - I once put a Protoform Mazdaspeed6 on it.

I see the 12mm hex, are there any special offsets I need to look for? I dont know the first thing about onroad cars any more, the last one I had was a Bolink pan car.....

I was looking at these from HPI (challange tire 30c); http://www.hpiracing.com/en/part/104597

Special offsets? Well, depends on what you're using and expecting. The box-stock TT-01s come with 26mm wheels. While the ones you're looking at are 24mm and the wheel offset is most likely 0mm.

Although, don't get me wrong, those HPI pre-mounts will still fit, but the car's overall width will be narrower, that's all. (That said, you can still remedy that with +2mm offset 24mm wheels).

Below, is a picture of my own TT-01, with 26 mm wheels.

The smallest one I've found is 55t that is a direct fit. The 52t needs some mods to make work. (as far as I have seen)

Hi all, just built my first TT01D type E and so far I really like it. Using it mainly for parking lot drifting but am getting really into it and its turning into a full fledged hobby.

I am looking into some must-have hop ups for it and I am considering the following upgrades:
  1. Brushless Motor & ESC (possibly Xerun 10.5t)
  2. Active Hobby high angle alum steering set
  3. Front one-way diff

Can anyone recommend any other brands or even other parts that are a must to upgrade? I don't plan on buying a new chassis anytime soon so will stick with just upgrading parts for now.

Thanks all and looking forward to being a part of this community.

Here are a couple of good writeups that I've read on TT01 drift cars;

I went down to 48P 52T spur w/ a 48P 41T pinion for the very same reason. Other suggestions would be great.
