How do I set up my TEU-101BK ESC to get maximum power for my TT01 stock racer?

good day guys i'm trying to avoid the purchase of the aluminum steering assembly as much as possible, maybe you guys have tweaks on how to minimize slop?

Imel24 : the aluminum steering is really necessary as it eliminates side-to-side and up-and-down slop. That's a major reduction. There's a bushing that goes inside the steering arm bearings. You can sand these down to match the arm's bearing heigt to eliminate up and down play.

You can also sand down the bushings of the bridge that links the two steering cranks together, or just shim it to eliminate up and down play.

Another source of slop is the part of the front upright that goes into the pivot ball inside the upper and lower arm. The part that goes into the ball is sometimes too thin, you can wrap a layer of scotchtape to take up some of the looseness. You can either wrap enough tape and still let the front upright turn inside the ball or wrap more tape for tight fit with the ball; in this case the ball will start turning inside the cavity of the arms.

after the upright/arms become snug, use turnbuckles,ball studs and ball cups for the steering links and twist the steering links to take out any slop.

Actually no, i simply used the stock upper arms and just didn't mind the problem. I just lived through it since i couldn't fix it.

I just ordered my 1st TT01 kit today + a full bearing kit. For parking lot bashing only, no racing. I have radio/rec/servo already. Should I upgrade anything else [oil dampers, aluminum shaft?] or is it pretty good as is? Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your spec.

What is the final gear ratio you are running? 8.35:1 using 61/19?

With the power of MM7700, does it tear up your bevel and ring gear?

How was the car behaviour like in the corners?

I am keen to install a MM4600 into my TT-01 too.

Appreciate your comments...

Thanks for sharing!

The track I am running at now is low grip and very dusty. I had to trimmed all the MM5700 settings to their minimum to run my XRay T1 and it is really flying... I cant imagine a MM7700 on a TT-01 will be like ...

I'm curious if anyone bought the TT-01R, does the GT tuned suck? or is it my imagination, my old sport tuned motor is tons faster.
