Where do you order your carbon parts?

I'm confused by this thread. It's interesting, but I feel something has been lost along the way. Why does this GT-Sport class enforce a TT02 chassis if you're allowed to replace pretty much everything? Also I thought you started off trying to make this a cheap build by reusing parts but now you're custom fabricating significant portions.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good read, I'm just lost on what the spirit of the class is.

The spirit is having fun with the car and on track with your TT-01/TT-02. There are a lot of different people with different TT specs and/or tuning parts. These guys should all be able to run the class. Not everything is allowed to change. The black tub has to stay and remain unchanged. I guess they wanted an open class for all TT owners.

Definitely the spirit of the class is not a fanatic RC car builder like me. I know I am overdoing it, but that is my way of having fun in this hobby and one big part besides driving. In the beginning I had the idea that I wanted to use my old stuff, but when I saw the result (and also minor problems with some solutions), I suddenly had the urge to make it in a more professional way. At least I showed, how it could be done with a little effort and spare parts. Sorry for this misunderstanding...

Philosophical question: What make a TT02 a TT02? I mean, you have removed over 50% of original parts... Will it be ok with the rules?

Rules? I thought WTCC was having fun to see what he could do with the platform. Did I miss where he said that he was building to a certain spec?

Tyger,
There have been a couple of vintage race cars effectively destroyed in accidents in the last year or so. When asked about the implications to the originality of the rebuilt car, the response was basically that if the chassis tag was original, so was the rest of it.

First post, he mentioned there were two classes and he was building for one of them.

Do you remember TA05 M-four? It didn't have many TA05 parts. I think that as long as it uses TT02 tub, it is TT02

What do you call it if you replace the tub with double deck carbon fibre like many conversion kits do? Tamiya even does that with their TA0* series chassis.

Well, you can't replace tub on TT01/02 without custom diff cases, as they're integrated into chassis. I think that's point, when TT02 becomes something different.

But you're right, Tamiya has sometimes weird logic in their chassis names. In case of TA05 they went by TA05 bulkheads = TA05 chassis (with exception of MS). On the other hand, TB03,04,05 and EVO6 share same bulkheads and difference between 03 and 04 is similar to TA05 and ver.2...

Strange discussion, but interesting. Usually I would say that the chassis gives a car his name. If the manufacturer says it is a XXX, even though it suddenly is a different car, then it would be a XXX for me too. Looks are important for me. Now, after having the conversion done, the TT-02 tub is still dominating the picture. So for me it stays a TT-02...but make your own call...

am I spotting some screw holes that can't be used because of nut interference?

Space is very limited there, indeed. It would be possible to use a buttonhead screw in the lower shocktower hole, but not in the order I built it
The whole unit is very strong, so I just let be.
I also had four slightly off measurements that I will correct in the next step in my CAD file. In reality I could cope this problem with my Dremel...
