I need a TT01 basic chassis kit (no body or electronics) for the upcoming TCS race. I prefer new or very lightly used. I saw something about the shock towers/gear cover being better on one of the TT01 chassis so if you have that it would be great.

Hi Shanedc:

This is a very nice sway bar setup on a type E!

May I ask if that's custom made? I upgraded my old TT01 with the type E's shock towers, but am still keeping the old chassis brace because I didn't know there's a sway bar set for the E.

I wish they sell a nice sway bar set like the one you have! Then I'll switch to type E's chassis brace!

Sincerely,
Den

Cool

Hi Den,thanks for the comments.Yes , they are custom made as the big "t" has no stab bar kit available for the e-type car. I think I listed dubro hardware #'s to use for screws. You have to drill tiny holes in the upper front arms for the bars,and use a dremel to cut notches into the upper brace for the bars to lie flat. I used a team LOSI stab bar kit,it came with bars and retainers for the front and rear.It cost 6.00. Just bend the bars to suit as needed,and you can then use ANY diameter ob music wire and experiment!use dubro parts 2299/2124,be sure to cut screws shorter or you will damage the gears!

Default TT-01 Motor Mount

I am searching for a motor mount mod for the Tamiya TT-01. I have a full range of Tamiya pinion gears in my tool box and instead of me purchasing some new set of pinion for this kit, I'd rather use my current spares.

Now my question is, is there any motor mount where you can use virtually all Tamiya specific pinions from 19T and over without the need to change spur gears. Are there any available mods for this ?

I am raising this question as I have a Yokomo MR4TC and I can use different 48 pitch pinion gears from 19T and over.

Any help will be appreciated.

1101 - It appears to be a TT01E with the longer rear axles and the arms that make it the shorter wheel base version. The longer axles plus the offset wheels appear to give it a wider stance. In my manual for the TT01E it shows the it shows the longer rear axles and different arms. I have the one that comes with the Suzuki body. The Lambo version may be the only one with those features right now. I don't know if any of the regular TT01's came with those features. If you're thinking about buying a TT01 and you don't care if it's an "E" version, let me know I found a website that's selling TT01's for around $100 with a painted body shipped.

I am newer to the TT 01 but not so much to RC. I have a basic stock TT 01 and I was just looking for something fun to drift around with. well I got it out for the first time when i got it and was pretty disappointed with the speed of it, PRETTY SLOW. So i Just purchased a 12T motor and a new esc. My question is with all that added power should I go ahead and look into some new pinion and spur combo. I am NOT racing it just parking lot drifting for fun. But I don't want my motor to over heat. TOP speed isnt all that important but I will throw some rubber on it and drive it around every once in a while. Any recommendations or will the stock gearing be fine? Thanks for the help
Ryan

Default TT01E question

Hi there. Couple of questions.
Im thinking about a TT01 for stock racing.
Does the TT01E 'improved steering" actually improve the steering??
Are the tyres that come in the kit junk, or usable in stock ??(perhaps OK for carpet?)

I can get a TT01 chassis for NZ$110; or a TT01E kit for $NZ200 (about US$115).
Just wondering if the extra NZ$90 is worth it
I dont really need the body/tyres etc in the kit, but I could allways sell em.
The Tamiya body alone costs NZ$65 locally.

1101 - The TT01 and TT01E are basically the same car. You could buy the TT01 and with the money you save by the parts trees to convert it too an "E." The steering is better.

anyone run brushless 17.5 in their TT01? I currently run a sporttuned and am as fast as most 27t cars. A new 17.5 spec class is starting and I was thinking of using the TT01. Any thoughts? Issues? Gearing ? Thanks

I did run the TT01 in a 2hour enduro using the sport tuned motor @55/23
AND the stock tamiya speed control. I placed 4 th out of 9 cars and they were all pro level cars running brushless. The car ran flawless , nothing broke and just kept going. Ran a tamiya 911 gt1 body. Gear diffs, alum motor mt., alum shaft, SPTuned motor, and graphite upper deck & tam alum. shocks. everything else was stock. You can see the details of the race in the florida racing thread under MDI 2 hour electric enduro along with a pic of the car. white , red grn 911. I pissed a lot of people off that day It was like the energizer bunny.....going and going and going.... I still run the same black can motor too...boy did it get fassst. the com looks like a W the brushes barely wore but the com did

anyway.... thoughts on 17.5? thanks

17.5 needs to be geared around 3.5-4. Do the math.
