Default tt01 disappointing...

Gday, I'm new to electric, and I've a tamiya tt01 with a stock silver can...

I am a bit disappointed with the speed etc, its sorta comparable to a toy nikko type car...

I'm wondering if the stock motor is letting me down, or the gearing is wrong?

the ESC is a Novak gt7.

stock 61t spur and stock 19t pinion..

Does the stock motor have the tourqe to gear it down, or should I be letting it rev free-er (using a small pinion)?

any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

If its a out of the box stock silver can motor, unless you did some major break in, it will be on the slow side. Do a forum search for Silver Can, there is a large amount of info on how to get them faster.

If you want it faster and intend to keep the can motor put in a 22t pinion and if thats not fast enough you can buy the smaller spur gear option for more top end.

If you intend to go to a faster motor I would suggest a 23turn with the 22t pinion and standard spur. This motor will give a good balance between speed and battery duration.

Any thing faster and you will find the standard chassis' (mainly the shocks)
handling is insufficient for the speeds you will reach.

You need optional speed tuned gears and pinion gears. For eg. for silver and black mabuchi, you need 55T spur gear and 25T pinion gear ( 5.72 final gear ratio ). The top speed will be better.

If you want to keep the current gearing, you may use any 11T motor.

Check out the TT Gear chart :

Thank you so much guys...

I can see its gearing right up, which means there is not much load on the motor and the motor is basically reaching the limit of it's revs?

That gear chart is awesome thank you very much for that.

So the lower turn motors will rev higher... is that correct?

Hi there, in stock form, TT01 is like or slightly better than those "toy RC". You need hop-ups to get this baby going. I'm now running on Sport Tuned motor and 23T/58T gearing. This baby is quite fast for a small track.
