im ripping the gpm alloy gear box/susp mount on the front. makes the shocks mad stiffer. adds some weight, but the durability is worth it for my rally car.

i did try the upper deck from the tt-01e, but still ran into problems, even with the "e" motor mount. i think there was an issue with the mounting holes in the upper suspension arm holder things. know what i mean?

I see tamiya are busting out with some carbon damper stays for the TT01E, 54059 & 54060. If i want to fit these to a normal TT01, all i would need to do is cut off the suspension tower fixed to the bulkhead, right? Or would i need to use the front part bulkhead from TT01E A-parts?

I also found out 3Racing are coming out with a version 2 of the very popular CF conversion, that can fit both the TT01 & TT01E, the TT01 is getting alot more interesting now, better adjustability...

Yes, I know what you mean. The holes are too high right? You either have to file down the edges of the holes flush to the hole itself or get the 01E "upper suspension arm holder things" Once you have done that, it will be a nice fit. I know because I have done that.

If you want more info, you can download the 01E manual and reference it.

do any of you doods use brushless? would it rip through plastic gears too fast or what? i say on you tube, some guy was using 1/18 brushless. mamba brushless systems are affordable enough, but i dont want to have to stock up on spur gears too much more than normal.

Don't get the 1/18 scale Mamba... the motor will be way too small! 1/10 is what you're looking for: the Mamba Max system or Sidewinder.

As long as you mesh it correctly the delrin holds up very well. Just don't crash! (I did and shattered both the left side knuckles and a dogbone right in half!)

Did you wind up running TCS? How did you do? How did your TT-01 do?

I planned on being at the TCS in Enfield. However, the week prior while racing my 1:1 car, I blew the engine. So replacing that engine is my highest priority to be prepared for the next event. I spend the TCS weekend pulling out the detonated engine. So, no, regretfully I did not go. Thanks for remembering though! A few chassis which I have help setup did every well and would have done much better had the carpet not been involved. Although after watching the videos of the mains, it was a free for all anyway!

I am still racing the bone stock TT01. It is the dominate car at the track. In both silver can and black can racing, as well as the endurance class.

For me the car does not need any hop ups.

But, the best upgrade (aside from wheel time) is shocks.

What kind of gears do you guys use for sports tuned or silver can? The max 25/55 with FDR 5.77? This ratio looks about right for a 10.5 brushless too, isn't it? I am currently using Sports tune with 24/58, and it's not exactly the fastest around, but the motor gets quite hot after 15 mins play, around 180+!

I don't have a TT01, but I race a TB02 in a silver can class and we like to run a FDR of about 6.5. It makes for great racing on our medium-sized asphalt track.
