Clangeddin - Yeah it looks clean cause I had just rebuilt it, so I thought what better time to take some pics

Drift Demon - I wouldn't know where to begin with the list, but I know that I've got every hop up that Tamiya ever made for it (besides the ball diff, front one-way, cause its my drifter both diffs are just locked). Then theres some square parts (front knuckles, upper deck supports, battery posts), gpm (alloy arms, front shock tower, upper arm supports) and I've converted as much screws as I could to hex type. And also if you hadn't noticed I've also tried to cram as much blue shit in as possible too

rough512 - Don't know exactly how much, but yeah it is pretty heavy, great for drift

Hey does anyone have any extra spur gear covers? Mine is starting to crack--does this happen to anyone?

Also will getting the upper deck stiffener help prevent this in the future?

I am also looking for the body posts since mine were cut too short from the previous owner.

try looking for the parts bag with the battery cover, it's really cheap and easily available, you also get lots of parts that usually break from that particular parts bag like uprights, shock towers, arms etc. regarding the body stiffner i dont think it will help with regards to lengthening the life of the spur gear cover, for one thing it might even add additional stress on the spur gear cover because it is linked to it,,,

one good practice though would be putting thread lock on your spur gear cover before you place it on the chassis, when using a really hot motor like the novak 3.5r the spur gear cover tends to lift up from the chassis because of the screws not having enough bite on the main chassis causing premature breakage of the spur gear cover.

That's the thing. I have been putting on the threadlock. I think I have been overtightening the screws though.

what are the difference between TT-01 and TT-01R?

Do they use the same parts?

Much of the same parts, but the R has some good hop-ups... full ball bearings, aluminum drive shaft, adjustable front upper arms, a bunch of other stuff I can't remember at the moment. I did some quick and dirty math the other day, comparing an R plus electronics plus body to the price of a TT-01 hopped up to R specs. They come pretty close. Of course it all depends on what kind of electronics you put in the R, but when you go with the same stuff as the TT-01, they're pretty close. I'm going to get an R for my parking lot basher.

I agree, it's tough to find Tamiya bodies. Most places around me have loads of HPI shells, but few, if any, Tamiyas. Luckily, my local track's shop (Seattle Indoor Raceway) stocks a ton Tamiya parts, including bodies.

hey doriftu! If you can believe it I just received the Sushi Drifts today in the mail! It took 4 weeks to ship to here in Canada

So far they fit proper on the rims I bought, gonna have to cement them on though.. Will test em out this weekend if the weather permits!

Also the 4200mAh battery lasts for quite awhile it seems. Didn't time it, but I guess your mileage may vary.

I'm wondering what the best surface to drift on will be. There is this underground parking lot that's new and has a slick surface (I guess that's better for normal tires). But I was drifting the other day on a tennis court with small bits of tree leaves/etc on it. Drifted NICELY and that's with normal tires. I'm gonna try the new Sushi Drifts on the tennis court without the tree leaves to see what happens.

btw: anyone know how long normal AA Transmitter batteries should last? thx

Keep on drifting
