Default Questions about Tamiya TT01, TT01 VS TL01 Handling

Hi!
Does anyone with the TT01 have a gear ratio chart? I'm interested to know the final drive ratio when equipped with a 19T pinion.

Next, how does the TT01 handle in comparison to a fully hopped up TL01? I'm attending a stock race where only the TT01 and TL01 are allowed. For the TT01 I understand there are limited hop ups, whereas for the TL01 is quite substantial. (I have a largely hopped up tl01)

The TT01 at a glance shows
a) Lower CG +
b) Plastic parts (good! VERY LIGHTWEIGHT!) +

But I didn't have the chance to test a TT01 yet

Appreciate advice! Thanks!

Regards,
Alvin

According to tower hobbies it comes with a 19t pinion and 61 spur is and the OGR is 8.35:1, so the IGR is around 2.6 I guess, if tower has posted correct information.....

Yo Al,
m not underestimating TT01, but why in all sense ppl would want to get a TT01 and 'hopped it up' to compete with TL01?
You may want to try tamiyaclub.com for that info if here is no avail
Most owner would be either a beginner or a complete Tamiya hardliners.
Just my 2cts.

fatdoggy: Danke! Just what I needed.

GTO2: Well for one thing the CG of the car is lower, layout is like TB01/EVO1, the handling *could be better* than tl01, hence perhaps better corner speed? No idea, never tested it...

Finally, I was told only one hop up for TT01. Alum centre shaft. The car is relatively light, and in a stock class race this could be a deciding factor

Yo Al,
If you can't get hold of TT01, the TB01 could be of close resemblance, geometry wise etc. I'm not sure abt the weight though. TT01 looks more compact and less sturdier.
Apparently TT01 is evolving too... from Tamiya/Team Orion web.
Check this one out:


53670 TT-01 Aluminum Racing Steering Set

Presenting a complete steer set for the TT-01 chassis to eliminate those little tweeks caused by using molded parts. A pre-assembled aluminum steering arm with bearings provides more sturdy steering control. Comes in blue anodized aluminum.


53671 TT-01 Front One-Way Unit

After receiving many requests from TT-01 chassis users for more optional parts, Tamiya now delivers a Front One-Way Unit for this chassis. Having some parts in common with item 53507 TB-01 Reinforced Front One-Way Unit, this item will give smooth running to your model.


53672 TT-01 Carbon Upper Frame
In order to give an improved strength to the TT-01 chassis, Tamiya offers a Carbon Upper Frame.

Default Hi

Hi Alvin,

From what i saw at Tai Sing, the hop up for tt 01 is quite alot, besides those mention by GTO, there is still the ball diffs, ball bearings and heatsink. From what i notice, the ball diff and front one way is very much expensive than most Tamiya cars. The only hopup that is cheap compare to the tl 01 will be the bearings cos tt 01 doesn't use that much bearings.
