Default HPI E10 vs TT01

i was looking for a bit of help making a decision. what do you think? TT01 or E10? i don't care if i get a kit or RTR, just need to know people's opinions... the E10 is 100, and the TT01 is 60... just to give you an idea of the extortionate prices...

I think the TT01 has more hop up parts available than the E10 chassis so I would go for the Tamiya chassis

I have both cars and Yokomo D1 but I found E10 is the best one on drifting among all of them. Why? E10 is designed for drifting. Remember, TT01 or D1 was a touring car at first.

TT-01's are very strong. The arms are that much stronger since they are one piece and you cannot adjust camber and such. I think the E 10 has fixed camber as well...

I don't know about the E10, but I like how you can switch the motor mounts from front to back. Very cool feature...

If you plan to race, get the TT-01. It is going to be more tunable (after you get the parts, but they are very available). RC mart is in Hong Kong and has an amazing selection, and shipping isn't that bad... (to the states at least) depending on how large your order is. Of course, the time it takes to clear customs and ship takes a while, but the selection beats out the time to ship in my opinion.

E10s are specifically designed to drift, and nothing really more. It is going to have specifically designed spur gears and such that are not going to be very customizable really, until maybe next year when they come out with more parts.

For racing, Id suggest pay a little more(~50 bucks) and get a ta05. Youll outgrow the tt01 very soon. For bashing, tt01 is perfect.
