I run 4.1 in my TT-01 carbon fibre chasis and run it on asphalt. That FDR does not fit the bath tub chasis. A listing of FDRs for TT-01 is on p. 28 post 835.

With the lowest FDR potentially 5.11 with the 55T, it would probably be sub-optimal to run a 17.5. But a 13.5 would be OK with the 28/55T?

hi there everybody.

new to this thread as i've just bought a TT-01E last week and finished putting it together yesterday. the only upgrade i did to it was the ball bearings. evrything else is pretty much stock. i've been reading a lot in this thread and came across "droop settings". my question is what are the parts i need in order to have droop settings in my car??? by the way...i've also installed the adjustable upper arms for both front and rear. if you guys can provide part numbers too...it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks!

(edit: my bad, it was the D kit that had the arms that I'm discussing below)

I'm pretty sure the TT-01D comes with the droop arms and screws; I have the original TT-01 and ordered the TT-01D spare arms/parts and tried to install them on my regular car. In short, I was pretty disappointed. The regular TT-01's outdrive interfere with the droop screws (you won't have that problem) but also the plastic is so soft on the bottom plate that turning the droop screws just bends the bottom plate and doesn't really control droop. The TT-01D's bottom plate has an extra support ridge and a small metal plate for the droop screw to hit, but they are ineffective in my opinion.

I really wanted that droop kit to work, lack of droop is the only feature in the TT-01 that I wish it had, but when I got it I think it's implementation was weak.

Have a look at http://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/rcmanual/tt01d.pdf

It lists the parts required and has diagrams

the 01R has the stuck on metal plate and droop adjustment, as it is using the metal drive shafts. The 01D has the adjustable arms but do not use the droop screws, 01D is using the plastic thick drive shafts. The o1E is the same as the regular 01, no adjustable arms, no droop adjustments, plastic thick drive shafts.

RaceBucks,

I agree with you on the droop issue. I think the only way your going to get the effect of droop at all is to upgrade to the 3racing carbon fiber chasis. Which is what I did. I am waiting in the mail for my new gearing as well using 48p kawada gearing with the HPI adapter. Thanks to you and brrrrm for your gearing research. And to everyone else I did not mention. I have a Team Losi Type R and I was ready to give up on my Tamiya and make it into a drifter. Now I am going to let the Losi sit for a while and rebuild the TT-01 see what I do with it on the track.

thanks a lot guys....i guess ill just have to make and do with what i have instead of converting to c/f chassis.

one more thing to ask....what will be the easiest way fit the 52T spur. looking at the table that racebucks had...i cant seem to figure out what mods has to be done with the spur(sorry...newbie here). im trying to achieve an FDR of between 4.83-4.36.....will this cut short my run time???

thanks again guys!

thanks again guys!
for a 4.83 gear ratio, run the 52t spur, mounted normally on the propellor shaft. i think the 52t will only mesh with a 28t pinion. mount the motor on the top right and bottom left holes on the motor mount (roughly 2 oclock and 8 oclock holes if that makes more sense). no other mods should be needed. thats a pretty crazy gear. let us know how it goes.

im not super good with gear ratios, but i think that ratio will give you a crazy top speed, and maybe put a big load on the motor while accelerating. someone please correct me if im wrong.

Yes and no -- it all depends on what motor he's running and what he's doing with it. If it's a 13.5BL, for example, an FDR of 4.5-4.6 is totally normal. If he's running on a large, sweeping track he could probably run a silver can with that FDR. If it's a tight, technical track he'd probably never reach top speed and may even let the smoke out of a silver can in the process.

ok guys....i tested the car today on the track. im running the 25/55 for an FDR of 5.72. im running the black can motor with the car. wow....what a difference from running 19/61 w/ silver can. my concern is now...the motor got very hot. i went and used my temp gun and it read 155F-158F this is after about 5 mins of run time in the track. will this temp be ok for the motor??? will a heat sink help somehow???

thanks!
