Default Tamiya TT01 vs TL01 (& TL01LA) ?

Interested to know from anyone who's tried BOTH of these chassis side-by-side, especially in Stock Unmodified form (ok ok, with full bearings ok).

How's the relative (1) handling, (2) speed & (3) durability?

I don't know the TT01, but I know that the TL01 is slower than a 2wd dirt buggy. Too much driveline friction...even with bearings. It was really sturdy though.

The drive line of the TL01 seems like its really heavy duty, the gears are huge! and the two differentials have heavy metal gears inside, so there's a load of centrifugal resistance. I was actually running mine with a 12 turn 50,0000rpm motor and the gears survived! I suspect that the TT01 has a simillar drivetrain to the TC3, fewer gears, ball diffs...or am I confusing it with the TB01?

Out of the box the TT01 is faster than a TL01. Mainly because of the transmission. The TL01's drive line is designed for a tank, it has too much rotating friction! the TT01's is silky smooth and quiet... perfect for a sports car. Also the handling is better in the TT01, the steering is more neutral towards cotrollable oversteer when you slide off the throttle. To me the TL01 felt more like a shoping cart(sorry!) but I did have to put inserts into the TT01's tires, otherwise it had no grip through the turns, but it still handled great without them. as far as durability I don't know yet, only 5 runs, but the tyres are still good and the driveline is still sounding smooth. I like my TL01, its a great car, its just not as fast as my TT01!!

I've driven both in stock standard mode! umm, the TL-01 is a prawn trawler compared to the tt-01, They both under steer, yet I have fixed the tt-01's understeer with a turnbuckle. (can get it for US$5 of e-bay). highly suggest you get the alum drive shaft for the tt-01. put a high RPM motor in and see what i mean. With my tt-01 with minor upgrades(23T Stock t motor, turnbuckle and alum drive shaft + bearings, and new shocks) I Kept a TA03 honnest. This TA03 had everything hopped up! he was also using a 18Turn compared to my 23. The tt is very god off the mark too.

tt-01
pro's:
-light
-very sturdy.
-bathtub
-great off the mark.
-steers well with stock 27/540
-very easy assembly
cons:
-messy insides
-crap shocks(upgradable)
-crap plastic driveshaft(upgradable)
-understeers

"""once hopped-up it goes like the wind"""
"""TL-01 didnt know what hit it"""

TL-01 = old technology
