Without the steel plates the screws bottom out on the plastic which is no good indeed.
Yep, I glued them in as well. The whole thing was just way too soft. It's alright though, I'm just using the car now as a silver can racer.

Build still in progress thanks to all of you who have been working on the gearing aspect for this car. Right now its geared with a 65 spur 39 pinion. Its not been on the track but I am looking forward to getting it out there.

Default blk or silver

Guys, how much of a difference will I notice between the silver can motor and the black sport tuned in my TT01 geared at 55/25. Big difference in top speed or not enough to bother. Thanks,

The black can is faster. On our track it is about 2 laps faster. However, the black can heats up quickly and fail. We replace them just about every 2-3 race days.

As said, the Black Can's are much faster but they introduce a lot of heat. In a stock TT-01 plastic motor mounts can warp, fans and heat sinks are a must, and drive shafts flex under the extra torque/speed. By the way I was running the 52 spur.

I ran my TT-01 in TCS with a silver can and it was great, but when I tried going to a Black Can for their finals there was so much that had to be done to the car that I stopped.

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.


Ummm, why dont you guys just use spacers INSIDE the shocks to limit droop like in the "old days"? I'm sure its a little more work, but if it gets you the win, why not?

Default Ordered a TT01.

My 7 year old son started to understand RC car racing and he's gotten so good with the TT01 that I am having a hard time catching him with my F103GT on my tight course that is set up in the driveway. I have succumbed and ordered TT01 for myself. I was debating between a TT01E and TT01 and I went with the $40 cheaper TT01 with the BMW Z4M body. $123 shipped. I ordered an aluminum shaft, carbon upper plate, bearings, type b tires, and motor heatsink the same day.

Default RC NEWBIE

I purchased my first RC Kit last month (a TT-01 2006 DTM Mercedes
Finished Body Tamiya #58379) and really enjoyed the build. I got the
controls for the kit last week and got it running. My problems now are
traction (or lack of it), handling (the car just doesnt seem to turn right
when it is running at full throttle) and speed (I am using the silver can
that came with the kit). What would be recommended in terms of simple
hop-ups or settings (if any with this kit) to solve the issues above? I
dont plan on racing the car, I just enjoy running it at the local grocery
store parking lot.

Thanks in advance

a spring set would be a good thing to get for tuning the "turning". Swaybars help too. You could just try to mess with the shock position aswell...makes a pretty good difference. SPEED: switch to the smallest plastic spur with the biggest pinion, it'll take a while to get to top speed, but you'll get there.
Theres also a hotter motor, but that all depends on what you race. If you,re just bashing, well, you could have fun with a hot brushless setup, but you'll have to upgrade everything to handle it....driveshafts, cvd's, heatsinks, fans, stock up on extra parts that you'll break when you hit curbs...arms, hubs, etc...

guys, I'm sorry if I have missed it somewhere (I must have) but is there somewhere a link, .. or does someone have a link to some setup-sheets for the TT01?

I have looked through this thread but as said, might have missed it.

I am starting to compeed with my TT01E in a local Tamiya-competition. The TT01 has to be stock, only oil-shocks alowed, a max of 55-25 spur/pinion, all parts Tamiya offcourse.

Could anyone help me with a good general setup for Carpet and asphalt? for this car.
Actually, it's on a Asphalt circuit tomorrow so I could use that very quickly.
thx in advance

Find out what setup everyone is running and use that as your starting point. You already know the pinion and spur requirements. Now you need to figure out what weight oil for your shocks your going to use and what your camber and toe setting should be. You get get that from other drivers you drive their car there. At my track I run 40 weight oil in the front 30 in the rear with stronger springs in the front to cut down front weight transfer and I have 3 degrees negative toe in the rear

Default Universal shafts

I bought universal shafts for TT-01 and the seller shipped me the ones for M03/M04 chassis. Are they the same?
