I would say it's only as good as how you have the car set up. With a motor that powerful, you should upgrade to an aluminum drive shaft and cups. I think others in previous posts from the past week or so have reported stripping spur/pinion gears, perhaps due to these powerful motors, but you should read back over the last page or two to confirm.

Like raffaelli said, practice. Even if you're just bashing in a parking lot, spend a lot of time learning how to control the car. Those parts won't make you any faster nor will they make you a better driver until you've got the basics down. They'll look nice, for sure! But that's about it. So get out there, have fun and don't worry about what's on or not on the car today.

Default tt01e

i bought a tt01E, i set it up the same way as my regular tt01. i noticed a big difference in the turns. i was pushing very bad. i softend up the front springs, to little effect. could it be the upper deck that comes standard on the E? would oil shocks help or should i remove the upper deck? any help opinions would be helpful, thanx.

I am currently using a 6900kV with a mamba max. The motor is crazy fast already, and I am still only using a 20:61 ratio. However, you really have to be careful with this motor (buy extra spur and pinion gears).

The thnig I do not like is how if you are using a brushless motor and you don't have something tightened just right (like the grub screw) then you will pay. I have gone through 1 1/2 spur gears due to minor errors in adjustment and checking to make sure everything was tight.

And personally I find that these faster motors bring out the imperfections in your chassis. I got mine second hand, and there are some screws missing, and the rear gearbox stiffener (locks the spur gear cover to the rear assembly) is gone on mine. So every time my chassis flexes a little bit, the drivetrain grinds a bit.

I think you COULD put a 7700 in there... but it' suicide if you don't have the drivetrain and everything loctite-ed down. But why not go for it anyways?

The problem shouldn't be the upper deck. If it really is pushing badly (too much weight is being transferred to the rear tires), then try stiffening the rear shocks and keep softer springs up front. But most cars (at least on mine and those at my local track) are the opposite - you put stiffer springs on the front, softer on the rear, reducing the amount of weight transferred to the front and reducing oversteer. I'm pretty sure that's the physics behind it... I'm no physicist, so someone who is can correct me if I'm wrong.

Oil shocks will also help a lot (with smoother rebound), especially if you're racing. The friction shocks just bounce around with the springs. Fine for general bashing, not so good for serious racing.

Hey guys found out what the problem was, its my steering servo if i plug it out then the stutter goes away, and if i plug it back in then it comes back. So i am going to change the servo and that should sort it out.

Cheers LUAP

Hi there
im new to this forum
signed up because im in need of desperate help
i have the tt-01 xb pro
replaced main chassis with 3racing.com CF chassis
replaced prop shaft with alloy 1
got oil dampers
changed gearing to FDR of 6.85(58/22 or 23 IIRC)
upgraded motor & esc
motor is Reedy superstock 27T, 33,200 rpm 145nm/m torque.


my problem is not speed
but grip roll
whenever i come into the corners, im getting grip roll and my car is flipping on its roof like a turtle

i NEEED to stop this ASAP as its costing valuable time in the race

Im ordering front & rear stabiliser bars, it comes with 3 coloured bars...
which do i use front & rear?

and does anybody else have ANY idea's how to stop the grip roll
PLEASE!! *gets on knee's and begs*

Without having your full set up and what you are racing on, I would suggest the following:

Smaller diameter tires
Lower the chassis
More negative camber
Less sticky tires
Thicker oil
Stiffer spring
Smaller hole piston
Slow down


As far as the sway bars, start with the thinnest, work your way to thicker till handling improves.

I have the friction shocks on my car for serious racing. Works very well.

You are correct. The faster you go the more of the limits of this car are reached. I find that brushless 13.5, lipo, foam on carpet, base kit, no upgrades is the limit of this car.

Does anyone know what shocks are stock for the TT01D Xpert Built? Is it true to do drifting, it's best to be on hard shocks on the rear and meidum/soft for the front? Thanks.

adrictan - it all comes down to personal preference, but i do here alot of drifters running soft springs front, medium springs rear. i run medium springs all round with no preload & it does the job for drifting quite well. i was using medium fronts, soft rears for some time but found it would not hold a big enough drift for my liking...

Try not to clean your tires so much and check your droop...

All ways works for me

Need advice. Tried the ABS. Too slippery on Tarmac/tar road. What other good tires can I get for drifting on tar? Also on MSCP floors/basketball courts, what type of tires can best?
