I do now. Just picked it up! Pretty quick out of the box. I ditched the stock TX/ RX and threw my stuff in. Might throw a hotter motor in it this weekend.

Drives good and drifts great! I would def recommend this car to anyone who wants to get into touring car racing without breaking the bank. It is extremely easy to change the motor from the rear to the front which totally changes how the car handles.
The stock ESC handles down to a 20 Turn motor but the included 27 Turn has enough power to get the car up to speed pretty quickly.
I really want to keep the car but my friends are all into nitro touring cars and don't really have any interest in drifting. Its not really fun drifting by myself so the E10 is looking for a good home.

I had 2 TT-01's and I think I prefer the E-10. I think the E-10 is the new TT-01. This car has a lot of features and a great price. I think the E-10 roller is like $80.00! You can NOT beat that. HPI already has a few hop-ups and I am sure there are more to come.

I just happen to come across this post and also have used both chassis for Touring and Drifting. Frankly speaking although Tamiya TT01 is crap but the E10 is even worst. At least the TT01 chassis dun flex so much and also the shocks on the TT01 can be change to TRF which are the best shocks in the market. And locally the price and the avability of tamiya is better and there are races held by Tamiya for TT01 only. I really the E10 chassis cause it is like rubber and the centre shaft will cause problem unless u change to the new and "Improved" shaft.

For me i have race the TT01 for about 3 years and it is still holding up, but for the E10 i am not so sure how long it can last.

For me i will place my bet on Tamiya TT01.

P:S If u are learning get a TT01, if u are racing get a better car.

Just my personal comment.

learning! hmm i need some more opinions on people who've had both the tt01 and the e10. a few problems with the E10: no parts support in the uk yet, i would only be able to buy an RTR (no roller out yet) and the tt01 has waaaay more hopups at the moment. hpi are always slow on the parts support, it was 3 months before parts were out for the firestorm...
