I don't have 49240, I have been told they are the reds from 53440.
53163 are the same length as 53440.

Well... after much contemplation I have decided I should go with a TA-05, and I believe I have a decent deal at hand. The thing that factored in was that, I can't many many purchases, so I really have to do the best I can with each. And I feel like I would eventually reach a point where I'd want a TA-05, and would do the best with one, so I might as well get it now...

If anyone is looking for a rolling chassis, check this out!

I'm considering the aluminium steering linkages and connectors (53864 and 53670) as my stock steering seem to have a lot of play, probably because they are getting old and worn. I already have the turnbuckle tie rods and am thinking of replacing the ends with the greyish low friction ones from the high-spec kits. Is this a wise thing to do?

The steering play bothered me the most on this chassis. The BB steering would definitely help there.

The low friction ball ends would be a great addition, I think. I mean, you have nothing to lose and more to gain

The steering on the TT01 is pretty poor to be fair. The steering set and turnbuckles help greatly, but the whole setup is let down by the front hub pivots. I've got the all alloy upgrade setup on one car which is good for strength but even with the upgrade metal pivot balls top and bottom of the hubs its very tricky to get the steering smooth. Fully tightened the steering won't move and slackened off you induce play. I've eventually got the screws slackened off and threadlocked, but its a poor design. Has anyone come up with a resolve for this ? My other TT01 has the plastic hubs and at least slackened off the screws don't move.

My TA05 MS in comparison is so much smoother and theres no messing with loosening off screws to get optimum movement.

I wonder if another option is the TT01E design? The tamiyausa site says it's a TA-05 inspired design, supported top and bottom. But you gotta get the plastic top plate as well.

Martin,

I have 3Racing aluminium uprights and Square-rc Flourine coated delrin pivot balls. It's better, but has updown freeplay in the arms. The arms wear.

My next action will be to try the 3Racing upper arms, castor and made of delrin. I'll let you know.

What pivot balls are you using?

Kevin

The only real differences are that the shock towers are separate for the diff case, it comes with a plastic upper plate. In my opinion, neither are needed.

It might help with some of the up and down slop, but not by much. Does anyone actually have this chassis?

Apparently they also changed some of the material too...

I have always felt that the chassis flex of standard TT-01 is a failing, as are the flexy shock towers.
I think the E is a great improvement, plastic stiffener will help with no added expense, and the separate shock towers open the possibility of carbon upgrades.

I believe that some of the new mouldings (diff covers) are fibre reinforced.

I switched from a 25/55 to a 25/58 ans just that little change gave me more wheel spin and longer run times and it's cooler! i got to fool around with it tonight for the first time and ran a few packs through it. I like drifting!

There has been lots of discussion of what brands you can use, search this forum for 'Robinson' or 'kawada' or '25T' or 'metric' or '0.6'. Read around those posts. There has been lots of debate as to what works and what does not.

I've never needed one, as I race stock 27 on small tracks, and gear in the 7 to 10 range depending on the motor & track.

Kevin

PS Actually, it's Tamiya 50477

Tamiya has their own pitch... It's a little taller than 48, actually.

You have to get the tamiya 24 and 25t pinion pack.
