Will this increase my speed in the straights a little bit and have the car accell a little slower so i have a little more breathing room out of the slow hairpin?
I would suggest you start by lowering the FDR until you hit top speed about 7/10 of the length of the straight, then see how the hairpin is.

19T and 61Spur gives you 8.35.
Try the 22T Pinion it will give you 7.21.
If that's not enough, get the 58Spur it will give you 6.85 with the 22T.

Watch motor temperature, don't cook it.

Default drift wheels

can you really make drift wheels by cutting pvc pipe or are they too crappy to actually work well? any other suggestions, besides "go buy some"?

I just put like $130 in parts into my TT01 and then just got a used TC4 team with electronics used for $75. Now I need to choose a motor for my TT01. How much faster would a mamba 770 be with 6cells then my current Orion 15T brushed motor? Also is the mamba 7700 the fastest out there with standard 6 cell packs or would the venom or LRP 3.5T be faster?

Dude, I put a 6900kV motor in my TT-01... it was out of control. And yes, it will be very fast. I dunno compared to a 3.5 though...

Rex, get ABS pipe. it is black, and softer than PVC and will drift better. Do you have a TT-01? I know you asked me about my TT-01, and I am making some ABS tires soon (first time, so it might be a while).

So if you end up buying my parts car I can throw in a set of ABS for you

Well I have the mamba 8000kv in my rc18t. Everyone said that motor is too fast for anything but using a regular 6 cell I can control it just fine at the track and it keeps up with the 1/8 nitros. How out of control is the TT01 with the 6900. Unable to keep it on the track? I want a really fast motor because I plan on never using lipos so with regular cells it should be fast but raceable.

Default my tt-01 and yours

i do have a tt-01. it has heavy modifications for rally, so its not really a drifter at all. it would be sweet to have another one that was more street ripper. there is a sweet rally thread of anyone else here thinks rally is the most dope-ass thing ever invented.

i made a set of tires from some random black pipe. it was either that or a potato gun. the tires are pretty lousy. 0% acceleration, and is more like driving on ice than any form o' drifting. maybe i made them wrong or something, but it seemed like there was really only one way to do it. maybe its the wrong pipe.

IT does seem like driving on ice, but you should be drift like on the vids on youtube. Look up SG Drifters if you haven't already.

I haven't tried to drive the 6900 on the track, but it's like dropping an Corvette engine into a '95 civic. Okay, maybe not that bad, but you will need to upgrade quite a bit to get the car to handle well. Shocks, the carbon upper deck, stabilizers, a more hardy drivetrain, steering links, etc.

If you have any other 1:10 scale cars, It wouldn't be a bad idea to get a mamba 7700kV motor, so in case the TT-01 can't handle it on the track, you have something else to drop it in.

Another person used a 12 cell setup with a 5800kV ( I forget the exact kV rating) and did speed runs. So the drivetrain will hold up to straights, but I am not sure about turns with the dogbones let alone handling.

Well I have the TC4 I could drop it in if the TT01 cant handle it? and put the 15T Orion in the TT01. I was thinking of getting the 3.5T Novak SS brushless. I think its a bit faster than the mamba 7700 but its hard to tell since each manufacturer uses a different speed rating, like number of turns, KV rating or RPMs but none of them list all 3 so you can more easily compare motors.

For racing get the 3.5. I believe they are more reliable since they are sensored...Though I really love the mamba.

why not have best of both worlds? Mamba Max parred up with an orion vortex 3.5. you have to run them with good quality cells though, & make sure the MM has the latest firmware.

The Mamba is sensorless.

I have heard that the mamba works best (cogs least) when paired with a MM motor. However, I don't know if anyone who has mixed the two have problems.

I run an orion vortex 7.5 with the mamba max, no problems whatsoever, ive tried the 4600 & 5700 both from CC, & i have to say the vortex by far is the best, air vents for better heat disspation, you can actually get inside it to maintain it properly...
