All I did was put the ff03 spur gear adapter in my vise and drilled it out to fit over the shaft. So really it's simple mod. I just need to buy the right spur/pinion combo. Need 64p so I can get the combo I want. Hopefully it will be here for the next race as well.

Oh forgot to say you are still limited to the motor mount holder. From what I have read I think I am going 75/45 64p which will be 4.3 for silver can

How in the heck are you guys running TT-01's in VTA? We have a TT-01 house class here so we've got some fairly good racers setting up their TT-01s and they run fairly well against other TT-01s.

But we'd never dream of running them against real touring cars. Heck, my Spec-R is at least a second a lap faster than my TT-01 and I win in TT-01 and am only a B-mainer in VTA.

And we use 21.5 t motors or silver cans

Locally most vta s cars are old chassis , everyone is a tub chassis except for one t2 chassis.

But most spec classes it doesn't really matter what chassis you use.

If I was going to a big event like snowbirds or something like that and I wanted to run vta only I would setup my t4 for it but locally it's fine

Your vta races must have all high end chassis .

For VTA we have a mix of everything from T4s and T6.1s down to my Spec-R S1 on the low end. We only have a couple of TC4 "tub" hold-outs.

Our TT-01 class is Silver Can only and only Tamiya hop-ups. The fast guys are running the M chassis TRF shocks to get the ride height down.

I can run my TT-01 at a second off my S1's pace, but it is five times the work to do it.

We've got one Tamiya "factory" driver that swears he's going to build a TT-02 to run in VTA. Just to prove he can beat us with it.

Ha. I'd lose by a lap if you are running yours.

Something is wrong with the gearbox right now. I need to get it fixed. But it will have to wait until after Nationals.

No idea on the ball diff, but you'll probably want steel diff cups for the steel outdrives. At least you'll want to see if plastic blades will fit in the plastic cups. The TT-01R Type E comes with steel and steel.

I'm rebuilding my entire gearboxes/differentials.

What is everyone doing with theirs? First time around I just put a little grease on the gears (per the manual) and I did the front and rear exactly the same.

You guys using grease? Diff lube? If so, what weight?

I race my TT-01 on low grip carpet.

I used a good coating of Associated black grease, the diffs are a little sticky at first, but once you run it for a few minutes and everything settles in, is nice and smooth.

Question, i was wanting to get a TT-01e for my son, as hes 8 and i know these are tanks. One problem i see is the gearing. What are my options for changing the spur gear to 48p (non-tamiya)? Is there a kit to do so, or?

i've heard of guys doing an FF03 mod, but i have no idea what that entails. im only just getting involved with the TT01. Matter of fact, here's my first video on it.

+ YouTube Video

Interesting, I never really thought about the shocks much... Had a accident at full speed and just replaced the shock with another plastic one. I will definitely look into getting some aluminum shocks on mine in the future. I hate the way mine handles right now.

I don't know if I'd agree with that. We have a TT-01 class at our track. I've spent a fortune on the TT-01R Type E repairing breakage. Our rules state Tamiya only parts and they are expensive. Plus there is that wonderful Tamiya exclusive deal where you break one part and you have to buy a $15 parts tree.

The TC4 Club Racer that I used to race in VTA was the same price and drove 10x better right out of the box.

You're right about the gearing. Everyone here runs the 55/28 combo as it is the lowest FDR possible with stock Tamiya parts.
