Angry Best hop ups?? whats worth the cash lol

well my TL-01 decided to play up and make a clicking noise i narrowed the fault to the axle/dog bones/ and bearing yet fail to get any futher as i see no faults with any of the items that make the noise, so i brought a kit off ebay for a TT-01 chassi.

one question is that i dont think the kit has a steering servo, and as i intend to take the esc etc from my TL01 will the steering servo work??

i have purchased bearings for the kit to aid my 19x2 motor and esc.

are the upper and lower arms front and rear for the susspension worth the money?? i know a gpm drive shaft is worth a go?

but what else can you suggest?? and where can i get them from. (im in the UK)

cheers in advance for your help and expertees!!!

You can use your steering servo, it will work fine.
Provided your ESC is rated higher than what motor you are using it will be fine with your 19 turn. eg 15t limit ESC will be fine but a 23t limit wont be.


You will need to get some different spurs than the kit one, to help gearing your motor, as for upper and lower arms, I tihnk getting adjustable upper ones would be helpful.

thanks thats good news that my servo will fit.

ive heard that the steering can be a weak spot?? is it worth going for the alloy steering kit??
And is their any shops that dont charge a fortune for UK shipping?? the last shop i went to used wanted well over $20

Will a 55t/58t spur gear set work well with my tt01/ i like max speed but at the same time i do enjoy drifting and tight turns racing so i still want enough acceleration to keep a big smile on my face

well i just brought the aluminium steering kit and the speed tuned gears.
will the alumium drive shaft make a noticable difrence??

and what other hop ups would you suggest. this car will probably never see the track but i good thrashing agaisnt a tl01 an f201 and a mini(i think thats an mo3?) so i hope i will have the advantage other the competiton allthough the tl01 is running a 13x3 motor with speed tuned gears and light wieght chassi!!

so any input would be great, any hop up suggestions etc??

id show u a pic of my car but it hasnt arrived lol so for now its just the TL01

Alloy centre shaft will be a good investment, so will oil filled shocks, they will help your car handle through corners
