TA-05 is the way to go. You can get it to handle great with just a few mods. Another good thing is that there are A LOT of aftermarket support.

If you can, step up to the TA05. Much better platform to grow with vs the TT-01.

Before deciding check what race classes your local track allows in terms of chassis and motor. Also consider your driving skills! If you are considering the TT-01 then you are looking at entry level racing with probably a motor restriction as well. Check the rules before buying anything!

TA04 or TA05. Both chassis have huge parts support and 3rd party hop ups.

I would not go with the TB02R because you do not have the same gearing options like the TA04 or TA05.

Listen to the guys, go with the TA05.
