Exclamation More speed out of a tt-01

hey guys,

i am new to rc racing and have a tt-01. i race in a novice class but i get beaten every week, not because of my driving because of my car. Anyone know of some good hop ups or tweaks to get a bit more punch out of my car??

thx

First thing i would try would be smaller spur / larger pinion combination

try this site to see what you are looking for gearing wise

better batteries maybe 4200 dont need to be matched but ferals are cheap so
bearing weight loss etc etc look at droop better tires etc
if u all run 540 motors try running it in brasso for 30 sec then clean it with electrical cleaner/motor spray finally lube bushings and comm drops
do u make any mistakes? run wide spin etc etc??? be honest cause they will loose u more time than the best gear will make up.
dw man i still make heaps of errors and if u dont congrats ur a better driver

When I first put my TT-01 on the track I also wasn't too happy.

So, I changed the gearing (55/25), replaced the shocks with oil filled ones, springs and tyres. I also replaced the propshaft with the aluminium one and installed bearings.

I am quite happy with it now, the only thing stopping me from doing better in races is my bad driving.
