The motor is a really good pick, but the ESC, I find Hitec products are prone to breakage. This is only in my experience with them. If you are looking for something good, but in a good price range, try the Novak GTS. It only has a 10 turn limit, and it won't work for brushless, but it is a good sport ESC. If price is not a concern, go with Novak's GTB or GTX. Both are good brushed ESC's and the GTB can migrate to brushless if or when you want to.

The TT-01R propshaft is not easy to buy as a spare part as it uses quite a few unusual parts. The normal TT-01 alloy propshaft is just fine.

As well as the stuff you have mentioned I would also put some pinions (22T or larger) the adjustable steering arms and some oil-filled shocks on your shopping list, this makes the TT-01 work really well.

Go to www.etamiya.com and you'll have a lot of TT01 hop-ups from Tamiya and Hobbysave.

Default Don`t WASTE Your Money

I have a Fully Hopped-Up TT-01. The whole thing cost Me $450.00. For that amount of money I could have got a TRF 415 MSX much earlier.

The TT-01 is a Tough kit. It runs well; and you can do some Rally Racing with it. But it`s a way for Tamiya to make a few $s on Side Hop-Ups.

I sold My TT-01 to My Son for $175.00. I started with a TRF TA04 SSG.....Then I sold it and got a TT-01. I`m getting a TRF 415 MSX now(it`s on it`s way).

Take Care

Yeah, I agreed with you. TT01 is a very basic chassis. I've spent almost twice the amount just for the hop-ups. But for me, because I'm aiming to race in the stock class in Tamiya Asia Cup, so no choice. For those who wish to go beyond "street bashing", the TB02 or the TA05 is a good choice. It's quite fast out of the box and it's "cheaper" than the TT01.

Hey Benny. My TT-01(My Son`s TT-01) is easier to set-up than My Pro 4 ara Edition; but it can`t handle Turns better than the Pro 4.
-The TT-01 is also Heavier than Carbon Chassis Kits.

Well, TT01 is my first and only car, so I've no idea about the comparison. Anyway, I don't think it's fair to compare the TT01 with Pro 4. TT01 is a entry level kit while the Pro 4 is a pro/competition kit. TB Evo 5 will make a better comparison.
