Hey, GREAT signature!

I'd like to buy a TL01, but it becomes the same price as a better car (with the necessary hop ups).

Yeah i know what you mean Aurra. I prefer my Xray for racing but you get a kinda special feeling from adding loadsa things to your car and making it your own, watching its lap times improve or whatever you use to gauge its speed. ThAt Is A nIcE sIgNaTuRe lol i cant stand it either.

TL-01 is my first r/c and i still have it now. it not a perfect car but i must say it is very versatile. it can be used for both touring and rally. my experience is that it exhibits traction roll (maybe due to short arms), hence it cannot take corners as fast as others. straight line speed and acceleration, however is excellent. as a rally car, i haven't tried it yet but it is already set-up for rally.

TFR: Lancer Evo4, Subaru Imprezza, Ford Focus are cars in the FIA world rally championship and are released by Tamiya using TL01 chassis. they may not be set-up for rally out of the box but it is possible. the sealed drive train of the TL01 make it a good rally car. just use the long shock ends of the low friction dampers to raise the ride height.
