Default Tamiya TT=01

Hey, dude, welcome to the R/C world. it's nice that you have an XB TT-01. If you wish that your car would go faster, first thing to consider is to replace all metal & plastic bushings with ball bearings. What kind of Electronic Speed Control (ESC) was installed on the kit? Is it a Tamiya TEU-101BK? If it is, the stock kit comes with a Mabuchi 540 motor. I suggest you may use a Tamiya Sport Tuned Motor. The stock kit comes with a 61teeth spur gear and a 22teeth pinion. I also suggest that you purchase a 55teeth & 58 teeth spur gears and 24teeth & 25 teeth pinion gears. In that way, you can see what gear ratios are better for your kit. But I would suggest you use this combination: 25teeth pinion to 58teeth spur gear using a Sport Tuned motor. I also suggest you use a side by side configuration 3300mAH GP batteries.

Dont want to seem rude but this is what annoys me about new people.
they come on here with vague requests and nothing to go on.
What are you looking for duration or speed, is it for racing or bashing, how many packs do you want, whats your budget for a charger, whats your budget for batteries?

If I were to make a recommendation I'd suggest a charger that can do NiMH as well as NiCds. On batteries I'd start with a NiCd pack and upgrade to something better as driver skill or desire to track becomes relevent.

first of all you need a real good hard SLAP for buying a tamiya tt01 i think it is one of the worst cars to have you should of spent the extra or $$$ to get something alot better like a TB01 0r TB02 or even a TA05, i will bet you on the TT01 is that the front hubs will break first.

if i were you i would go into the garage and take the hammer out of the tool box and smash the thing up, your wasting ya time with that car trust me you should of saved the money and get some thing better.






alot better

YOU HAVE ISSUES!!!


Hey Tamiyaguy! The TT01 is a good starter car and there are a lot of hop ups to make it a car to grow with. I have seen one take several hard hits off our track walls and keep going. And my nephew who has MS and is ina wheel chair drives his all over the place including the curbs and the only thing broke was the steering link over the drive shaft.

FOr batteries, look for good deals at your LHS on stick packs and a cheaper peak charger likr the Prphet plus from Dynamite. It can do Nimh and NiCd packs and is usually around $40. Stick with the stock silver motor untill you get used to the car. Then start upgrading. Don't buy the cool stuff. stick with what works better and helps handling. The first thing I'd invest in are some oil filled shocks. BIG difference!
Good luck and have FUN!
Mike
