Smile TT-01 DRIFT SETUP NEED HELP

hey there guys i have a tamiya tt-01 and i intend on makin it a drift car. it has on it an alloy shaft, alloy front knuckles, and alloy motor mount.

i have a 25T pinion and a 55T spur and the rear shocks are harder the front ones. Also i have a one way differential in the rear.

i was wondering if that is a good setup for drifting or if i need anything else to make it drift better.

and also what is a good pinion:spur gear setup for more acceleration?

please help.. thx

my setup
TT01 with carbon chassis & hop-ups
TRF shocks with medium springs all round
67T spur with 21T pinion (8.30FDR)
Drifts like a dream (pics if requested

Chuck your one-way diff in the front, that way itll act as a hand brake & you can flick the arse end out much easier, but it takes some getting used to... any other q's just holla back...

wow damn nice... can i have some pics??

so ur gearing setup gives better acceleration??
and if i put the one way in the front does it actually make it betta to drift??

cauz i heard ppl keep saying that the one way diff in the rear makes it slide much easier...

dno though i havnt tried it on the front.

In SG, we mostly use rear lock and front semi-lock. Shocks front soft and hard for rear. T-Drift tires from HPI works like a charm on most surfaces. But do note settings are for the driver so do experiment and see wht suits u.

I'm drifting on stock silver can.

Putting one way in the front will help, and if you have a spool in the rear that will make drifting easier, even with leak silver can motor.

But if you don't have a spool, the best you could to is sticking something into the rear diff to lock both sides, or try using really thick diff grease to make the rear act like a LSD... the open diff is just too hard to drift consistantly.

best regards.

Fill the rear diff with kiddies play dough or hot glue to make it a locked axle.
Either of these can be cleaned out so it wont damage the diff in anyway.
Put your one way in the front and most of the guys posts above is roughly where you want to be.
Gearing though would depend on what motor you are using so takes some trying out of different options to see what you like.

hey thanks all u guys..
im running a stock 540 silver can motor and clogged up the rear diff with paper towels..
it works really well it slides easy. i also have the oil shock from a losi xxx-s and they work well.

i made my own drift wheels from the cap off a spray can. it fits properly but they last like only a day or two.

Get some PVC pipe..... I tried to put some power into my TB-Evo but I can't get the gearing righteous enough for some serious speed to drift (and I was using a brushless system too). So I went to my Pro 2 chassis....

I am going to use the Evo chassis to race with.

great list! but what's the absolute minimum to drift tt-01 on a budget? what's the cheapest tt-01 that will still drift?

If i could go back & start out on a budget, it would be the TT01R i would most likely get. steel dogbones, oil filled dampers, pinion gears, it comes with the lot basically...

absolute minimum?

ABS tires... anything with AWD...

You'll get antsy quick though and want some bling on the chassis.

DD, do you find that the TT-01 lacks tuning options? Can you make subtle tweaks that change performance, or are things just "meant to be" on this chassis? I am deciding whether to stick to this chassis or not, or go for some TA-05 goodness...

Suggestions in order of things need to be fixed:

1. Use your throttle. If you are spinning out, you are gassing it too much, too early. drive straight first, gradually turn and gas it a LITTLE more.If you do it too much your car will spin out. Don't just floor it.

2. Switch to ABS. PVC (white pipe) is way too slippery.

I just noticed you said PVC rear tires.... so you have rubbers on the front? That's why you're spinning out!

Put PVC tires on the front too, or even better, switch front and back to ABS.

Where in MA are you? I live near worcester...
