maiden voyage for this TT (my 6th) in senior spec 2mrw, see how she goes. need to find some 5mm shims and fast, or else traction rolling abound i'm told. ugh

I have yet to run into a traction rolling problem at The C, either with kit treaded radials (slicks might be a problem, especially if used without an insert) or X Patterns (I use the Pro compound belted, but the D compound or Pro unbelted might deform more- like the slicks mentioned above- and cause a problem), both of which are mounted on zero offset wheels. I do not use spacers or 6mm hex drives, so my car's a little on the narrow side. Works great.

Setup is 4.5mm ride height all around, TRF shocks with 2 hole plastic (not teflon) pistons, 40 wt Losi oil, and short blue springs. Cheapo Futaba 3004 servo, too. Runs like a champ.

Give it a little setup time (mine took a few weeks to figure out) and you'll be flying!

doc, when #11 is not on fire, its fast. wonderin if there's somethin wrong in my drivetrain causin the heat. granted going back n 4th with josh M for 2nd fastest car behind ray seemed to dispell that somewhat. i rolled alot when grip came up and tires were no longer new in rd3. had 2/2 shims wise and it does help. idiot me though forgot had 2mm height spacers in front and rear. took those out, no roll. still not quick enuff for rayK, he can still pip a 13.0 (usually 13.2s are his best) once in a bit while i'm stuck at 13.4. not bad for a fresh car and a rusty driver.

Could be it needs a Special Cleaning, but I also hear that once you went through the drivetrain again it got somewhat more free. I think it takes a couple weeks for the drivetrain on these cars to bed in and get aligned.

Ray sent me four of the slightly tired motors and they got rejuvenated this past week. Will be fun to see how things look next Saturday.

Welcome to the club!

Largest pinion for stock spur is 22T


This is my bible for proper mesh and gear ratios.

Here is a better version of the gear chart which includes more pinion options for the F201 gear.

Heya, I picked up a TT-01 recently, and now want to upgrade a bit. I see that the TT-01E has some improved parts on it that will help with the sloppy steering a bit. Can I just buy those parts (A & D for TT-01 E) or is there some other fundamental difference between the two that I've missed?

BTW: Dont mention anything about any alloy, bearings or whatever. We're running spec. That means that you can only use parts that came with the TT-01, TT-01D or TT-01E.

TT01D has full ball bearings, motor heatsink, and adjustable camber arms.

Yes, you can buy those parts. Bear in mind, you need 2 pieces of part A5, or modify the existing part by sanding/grinding.

Hi Jim,

Am I misunderstanding the rules at Karz, because it does say in the rules that you can upgrade the following:

Upgrades to the cars are limited to:
*bearings
*oil dampers & springs
*adjustable upper wishbones
*upper reinforcement plate
*clamp style axle nuts (5mm)

I just bought a TT-01E and plan on putting bearings in and TRF Shocks later down the road.

It's true that the only stated upgrades are bearings, etc. but since the TT-01E parts I'm interested in are part of an approved TT-01 kit, then they are eligible to be put on to my existing TT-01.

Really the only kit part not eligible is the black can motor from the TT-01D. (or any of the parts unique to the TT01R)

Another interesting and unstated upgrade are the wheels and axles from the Ferrari Enzo kit. They have a different offset and use a slightly wider axle.

Jim
