MatsNorway, I see the pictures, thanks.

Just some updates, I replaced the Novak GTB with a Nosram StockSpec ESC, the TeamPowers with a Speedpassion 13.5 and enlarged the battery slot to accept square packs.



To improve steering response, especially on the chicanes, I replaced the stock Futaba 3003 with a Futaba 9550 high speed low profile servo.



More info here.

MatsNorway no problem with traction roll even on a high grip asphalt track with full tire traction compound. Whoever designed the TL01 over a decade ago is a very good engineer.

This coming weekend I will revert back to the Team Powers motor and see if I can improve on my laptimes. The Speedpassion was only running 130 degrees, too cool and maybe not enough power.

Will try a rear roll bar and test if it will improve rotational speed.

So far the TL01 is very good under low traction conditions. At high traction, the newer TCs and Tekin ESCs have an advantage.

Nice work you guys.

So how much weight did you save MatsNorway after all said and done?

Does the car get wider with the LA parts?
i don`t want that because i have no space to the fenders with my offset wheels.

Hi guys sorry for lack of update, have not raced the TL01 in a while.

But I did dust it off and raced last Sunday, on a technical carpet track inside a mall. Surprisingly without changing my asphalt setup, managed to qualify 3rd on the grid in the 13.5T brushless class.

Mine is the white car with with wing. Car was actually better than my driving.

Default about the sway bars

i tried installing op324 onto the car, but the front steering rods get in the way of the bars' tie rods and the rear doesn't have anything to hold it down to the chassis.

do i need additional parts??

Long shot here but, does Tamiya make a rear toe-in upright for the LA arms? I know they have a 2 degree for the two piece arms.

Hi guys, will be racing the TL01 again for the next 8 weeks. But undecided on what class to race it in. I could set it up for the Novice (540) class or 13.5T (no boost) class for my daughter to race in or in the 13.5T (boost) class for myself.

Decisions decisions.



p.s. I tried the Hobbywing ESC with boost (cheap at around $90USD with program card). Very fast. Worried that the carbon prop shaft might not hold up. But so far so good.

540 class with 23t and the speed tuned gear set. 13.5 might eat the gears after a while. I still love my TL-01.

Hi Mats, my rear is pretty planted. Maybe because we race on a smooth asphalt track with good tire traction compound. Gear diff rear and spool in front.
