Try them out yourself, I don't know of any at home fixes.

Battlecat, yes I meant for my sig to be ironic . But glad you're enjoying those sushi tires... I actually want a set since mine were from the previous owner, and just chopped and the edges are all uneven and flat. Ugh.

Cobble stone will be very noisy... Have any tennis/basketball courts in your area you can try to drift in? More flat level surfaces are great for drifting.

thanks

Cranky, I assume you have gear diffs. The choice of grease will affect the stiffness of the diff. For example Tamiya ceramic grease will produce a free spinning diff, whereas the Tamiya anti-wear grease will produce a much stiffer result.

The more anti-wear grease you use, the stiffer it gets.

The HPI heavy duty grease produces a result somewhere between the ceramic grease and a light smear of anti-wear.

Default Total Weight

I am curious about what weight people are running at, currently I am running at 1676 grams. It might be a bit boring if everyone posts with there total weight, so feel free to private message me, and I will summarize.

Tips on how to reduce weight also appreciated.

Well I don't race competitively so it doesn't really matter to me. Plus I don't have a balance that measures mass...

The only thing coming to mind to lighten it is to remove the skid plates. Other than that, cutting anything out of the chassis will take away from the stiffness...

Anyone feel that the gears seems a little stiff?

I have a TRF 415 and it seems the TRF 415 gears is much more smoother than TT-01. OR is that normal that TRF 415 gear is much smoother than TT-01?

Well it might seem stiff if you don't have a good alignment of the pinion gear and spur. Otherwise I think the drivetrain is pretty good. Is the TRF another chassis?

Lol. The TRF 415 is a wee bit higher end than than a TT-01 so, yes, the TRF 415 will be infinitely smoother than your TT-01.

Can anyone confirm that the TT-01 takes 64 pitch pinion gears?
