Default TT-01 vs HPI RS4 Sport 3

Is the TT-01 better than the HPI RS4 Sport 3?

I'm sure in the 167 pages of this thread it's been covered at least 16 times; but any build tips/tricks for the diffs and dampers?

Thanks

diffs are open. Use heavy grease like tamiya aw to give little less diff action. if you have friction dampers they are pretty basic. if you have the cva dampers they are simple, but can be tuned with different oil.

Default Over - Oversteer

There's a lot of Mid-Corner Oversteer while being On and Off Power on a Sweeper.
-It'll Oversteer with the Stiff and Extra Stiff Springs installed.

I have experience finding the balance(Set-Up) on many high-end Racing level chassis. But; this TT-01(it is't high-end) is crazy.
-it's fun to bash-race with this chassis.

I built a new layout. It had 6 Sweepers, 6 semi-short Straights and 6 Hairpins. I tried to learn the track with the 2 chassis as quick as possible.
If you guys are going to run in the schoolyard this summer I'll come by. Let me know.

Thanks for taking interest in running/racing with us at/in the school yard this summer.

I'm changing(shrinking) the layout to 2/3 of last years size. Now it will have 4 turns and 4 sweepers.

We usually race/run out there in July or August and early November. - ONLY on Tuesdays or Wednesdays or Thursdays. - 7a.m. to 11:30a.m. or 12p.m.(we end it before the teachers/kids start using the school yard)

I just have to remember to post the race/run date(s). . .Ha Ha!

Take Care

So I just got a wacky idea for using a TT01 for towing my kiddo on a trailer.

Some high turn brushed motor, a couple big 2s batteries. A bunch of extra weight, and a coupler.

... so what parts are going to fail first?

I would slap a good set of bearings, buy the alum drive shaft so it does not snap crackle pop, go somewhere in the 7.xx FDR range with a 55 turn motor min lol.. Weight place evenly. How heavy is your kid? Make the trailer to most of the work and just have the Hahn be the torque monster to pull it

Default ESC Recommendations

I bought a Hackmoto V2 13T motor for my TT01 Type E, but the stock esc does not support it. Can anyone recommend a brushed esc that will support the current draw on the Hackmoto? I'm having some difficulty determining which ones will and which ones won't. Thanks a bunch in advance!

Just wondering whether anyone else has experienced problems with the TT-01 "melting" the area around the rear spur gear.

I'm running a TT-01E in a vintage series called the Iconic Cup, but I am struggling with the above issue.

I made a bad effort at sliding the rear propellor joint through the spur gear during a rebuild. It looks like the pin didn't locate properly inside the spur, leaving me with a damaged spur and the spacer that goes over it. This probably cooked a motor as well.

I replaced the wrecked parts and although the propellor joint was worn, it seemed OK to re-use (this the the TT-01E hop-up part by the way). However the centre of the spur and spacer melted in the first run again.

Is it possible that the tub has been warped, or that there is some general issue with the TT-01E hop up propellor shaft? I had an original TT-01 a number of years ago and it had none of these problems.
