My Buddy has a TT-01 on the way, I can't wait for him to get it!

What HOP-UPS should he start with to keep pace with my XXX-S G+? I told him we can run 19T Spec motors to keep things fair.

So far he plans to get some bearings ( which brand ?) some Oil shocks.... should he get the TRF ones or is there a better set?
+ some Ball diffs ( who makes them? )

Also what the diff between the TT-01 & TT-01R?

Any info would be awsome..... I have to admitt though I haven't read through the pages on this post, so I guess I'm kind of looking for the easy way out.

If your going to be running 19t the aluminum propeller shaft is a must the old ones wobbles under acceleration and high rpms, dont't forget the ball bearings as well, trf shocks are really good though i like the yokomo shocks better on the tt-01 they seem to hug the track better, thats just me though.

But for it to be able to rub shoulders with the xxx-s g+ i suggest he buys all the hop ups of the car

Sounds good bro, what do you recomend in way of companies?

For bearings I told him to go with ACER, but he said they are like $80, and that's just to much for him.

and what about the ball diffs.

Why would you buy the bearing from ACER for like $80.00 when Tamiya sells a full ball bearing set for only $21.50 full retail?
Tamiya part number 53497....

Because ACER make some of the best bearings, and at the time I didin't know they were 80 bucks for the set.

I just got off the phone with him, he got his car, but his wife isn't going to let him have it till Monday ( his B-Day )

Does anyone have any good building tips?

I just bought an Esso Ultraflow Supra TT-01 Kit yesterday and I love it. I got the bearing set as well so its all smooth. I also want to get some blue neons going. Only problem is I didn't get the aluminum propeller shaft at first and now if I do get it I have to take nearly the whole car apart to install it (I think). Is there an easier way to install the shaft? And also is it worth it to get a sport tuned motor? And last of all does anyone know of any tracks around Melbourne in Australia? That would be great if you do.

That's no big deal, you have to open the rear diffcase and take out the diff (my tip: simply pull off the complete rear suspension with diffcover and diff as one unit with the upper and lower arms still in the diff cover). Pull of the small bevel gear and the bearing. Take the main gear cover off as well, now it should be possible to take out the main shaft. This is also the way to change the main gear. Thats 13 screws in total.

Now it's official. This years 24 hour race will take place at the new Motodrom Andernach Track in Germany September 8th/9th. So far 22 teams applied. 7 drivers per team makes a total of 154 drivers!
22 cars on the track at the same tiime and this one is smaller than last years track (Sinzig/Germany)!



Chassis will be the normal TT-01 hopped up with bearings, oil-filled dampers, alloy main shaft, alloy motor mount and speed gear. Motors will be Carson Cup Machines. Each teams gets the car, motor (Cup Machine), 2 tire sets and 8 battery packs at the track. So everyone has the same material. We still don't know what bodies we will get. Light on the car is mandatory!

what i do to remove the shaft is i open the motor case 4 screws i think then just lift the spur gear and you can basically slide off the prop shaft from there. the sport tuned is also a good motor big difference from the mabuchi silver can best of all it's cheap too. i highly suggest that you get the speed tuned gears as well, i usually run 25 pinion 55 spur on the silvercan and sport tuned motors and it's almost as fast as my 23 turn motors

Thanks for the tips. I was also wondering about how much difference the carbon upper frame made?
one other thing. What sort of hop-ups should I get? I plan to get a motor, alum prop shaft, alum steering set and possibly carbon upper frame. Any tips? And btw what do the (T)'s at the end of motor names mean? E.g. GT-Tuned motor (25T)

Default Setup Tips

My local club has just started a touring car class exclusively for the TT01 running with a standard 540 kit motor and rubber tyres.

The only hop-ups allowed are

Alloy Propshaft
Oil filled Shocks
Sports gear set.
Bearings

I have added all the permitted hop-ups to my car, but I want more performance. What can I do to the transmission, diffs etc to increase performance?

Does anyone fill their diffs with oil?

Any other tips

T means Turns or the number of windings an electrical motor has. The lower the number of windings, the higher the current and the power of the motor. That's the very short explanation.

My recommendation for beginners: Start with something like a 23T or more turns.

Thanks Hemi I'd been puzzling over that for a while. I think I also know what hop ups I'm going get cos I found a club and they allow any hop-ups or any whatever you want in the electric touring class. I'm gonna get the Alum prop shaft, alum steering set, sport tuned motor, new gearing and thats it for starters but I plan to get a lot more including neons!

Have been toying around with that idea for a while now since i got my MM5700...i have been running with 11T and sometimes it does strip my spur and pinion gear...too much torque...i think the MM will probably kill the gears...have you tried your MM7700 on the TT-01 yet? I think i'd need to gear it 61/19...and hope the gear holds..

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...
