Should I buy a new part to replace the part where it has a loose screw?

Also, I'm located here in the Philippines in Paranaque. Just want to know on which class should I race my TT-01 chassis? On-road or off-road? Is TT-01 even a race worthy chassis or should I buy another one instead?
TT-01 is pretty good for a beginner. And it's TANK so definitely go for Rally. Oh and you said you were racing on an off road track. And a part broke, did you have anything on the bottom of the chassis to protect it? Such as a thin sheet of aluminum?

Well nothing really broke or should I say crack apart. But since I over screwed this "particular part", it won't hold anymore to the bathtub chassis. So my only problem is the over screwed bathtub chassis. should I buy a new bathtub chassis or buy a whole new kit instead?

I had the same problem, stripped chassis. They are inexpensive. I bought two extra chassis for less than twenty dollars. It doesnt hurt to buy a bag of A parts & B parts, also inexpensive. Good luck w your TT01, fun easy to fix car.

The chassis is pretty cheap if you look on RCmart. But if you need to just get by until the new parts come in you could try to run just a tiny bit of thin CA glue into the screw hole and let it dry. Then run the screw into it. You'd have to be careful not to fill the hole upwith glue, but just enough to tighten the space. I've done this before on RC helis and it worked good, But it was a through hole so it was not possible to fill the hole up with glue.

Of course do so at your own risk.

And about which chassis you should be racing, you should base this off of what other people are using in you area. That way you'll get setup support and also possibly parts support if you break something and they may have a part you can use to get you by.

Hey guys Iím new to R/C racing, so to get my feet wet and to be able to learn all the basics I got a TT-01R to start with. I would like to race in the SPEC/Novice class in upcoming TCS race at Tamiyas racetrack. I have a few questions and Iím hoping that some of you experienced guys could help me. First, what type of tires would you guys recommend and if I should use inserts or not? These are my choices Racing Slicks-50454, Racing Radials-50419, and Racing Semi Slick Tires-50810. Second, which springs I should use out of these three sets 53163, 49382, and 49389. Iím using the TRF shocks with two hole pistons and the Tamiya 400 oil in all four shocks. Now I saved the best for last, I have to use the stock 19-tooth pinion/61-tooth spur gear with the 540-J Silver Can Motor. I went out to the Tamiyas racetrack and the car is very slow. Since I cannot do anything about the gear ratio does anyone have any suggestion on what can I do to make my MOTOR faster but I do want it to be legal for the race? I know that I just opened a CAN of worms. Thanks fellows for any and all suggestions.

Use inserts in the tyres, inserts are vital for how wheel the tyres are able to work.
Since you're only allowed the 540 with stock gearing, I would put bearings in it with an alloy shaft as this will improve the efficiancy of the driveline.

We run a whole gaggle of these cars in a class called Senior Spec back east. Either the slicks or the radials will work- nobody here runs the semi slick tires. Use Tamiya's gray foam inserts and glue them to the inside of the tire with some rubber contact cement. HPI 26mm medium foams work well too, just stay away from any molded insert as they seem to take away traction from those high vinyl content kit tires.

You will probably wind up with dark blue short springs up front and dark yellow ones in the rear. We use the short ones with a ride height of 4-4.5mm all around. Also get the turnbuckle steering links since it allows greater arm movement than the stock captured screws. As Scooter suggested, bearings and the aluminum shaft are a must. We lightly sand the edges of our teflon pistons to break in the shocks- again, this maximizes traction.

Motor tips? Remember that you must use a #53689 motor for TCS, which is probably NOT the motor that came with your kit. Before you run a new one, e-mail me at rccardr@cox.net

Default TT01E parts installing to TT01D

Hey, So i'd like to install the TT01E D-parts on my TT01Drift, because the D-parts have the improved steering parts which reduce slop and it comes with the upper deck, which I like.

Has anyone done this hop-up yet? is there new hardware required or will the TT01E steering parts fit with the existing hardware?

Hi,
Check with yr servo travel, see whether is it blocking, or maybe servo horn screw too tight ???

When you turn the front wheels to their maximum angle, the dog bones may get caught in the spline grooves of the wheel axle. Check for wear marks on the dog bones at the wheel axle end.
