Any help is greatly appreciated.
If you plan to run low turn modified motors, it will be a benefit.

I am running the TA05 pulleys and I cant find any advantage other than different gear ratios (2.225 vs stock 2.187) I have to switch back because TCS racing doesnt allow it.

dude, I suggest that you don;t use the ss rz for the tt01. the engine is too fast for the chassis, it can't takle it - loosening screws which will lead to the opening of the gear box compartment during runs, tires will wobble faster than usual if plastic bearings are being used, etc. I should know, I'm a beginner like you (two months) and I hopped up my tt01 with the ss rz and ecs! it's fast but...you know. I suggest you contact the TRRS (8242815), they provide good and solid advice for beginners (liek me)!

Hi,

Not sure what you're asking for here, but to answer your first question.
I ran a TT01 with stock ESC and TZ 23T motor for a year without any hassles, it doesn't have the punch at pull away like the higher end ESCs but once at speed it's fine. Stay away from the Sport Tuned motor as it will just be a waste of money. It's important that you upgrade your drivetrain though. You will need the Alu prop shaft and the bearing set. If you want even more speed then get the speed tuned gears.

My advise is to play with the TT01 to get the feel for RC but don't hop it up too much, it will work out cheaper in the end to buy a 415MSX.

There is a thread specially for TT01 if you want more info on it and the various hopups.

I think the sport tuned motor is okay. I go to work at the area ortigas. The director of the TRRS is Allan Colico. I'm planning to get a one-on-one session wit him soon for rc racing, i think it's 1K from 10am - 3pm. I suggest you go to their track at park square 1, glorietta. There are a lot of beginners there like us with tt01 kits, you won't feel left out!

hello.

Ei, what do you mean by "it doesn't have the punch at pull away like the higher end ESCs but once at speed it's fine." Right they say it can destroy the stock esc if you use the tz or rz motor? my drive train are already upgraded plus im using alu prop shaft already and ball set. the one thing that you said, that I should not go too much on hop ups on tt01, I can't do that, cause i've already hopped it up till the last of it. the only problem for me now is which motor to use and what esc to use. *I admit, I was so in a hurry that I hopped up my tt01 and at the end I regretted it.

Hey bro, what I mean is that for guys like us (not kids), we have to call him to get a one-one-one session on how to race r/c, proper driving, tips on setting up. I met him I think 2 - 3 weekends ago at speed zone and he gave me a 30 minute free lecture on r/c driving. there are proper classes for rc driving, but you'll be with kids and with kids, it's usually takes a lot longer for them to get certain teachings, that's why we have to call hime and get a one-on-one session. yeah, spoted tuned is good for tt01, I forgot, however, what allan told me the best engine for tt01 though. i don't know if there will be a race there this sunday though, not really sure. I know what you mean by hopping up the tt01, it's quite cheaper to buy the tt01r because that's race ready na (for beginners). we bought our tt01 kits one month early i guess. but it's all worth it.

the last report I had was they're delayed until further notice, so it could be a while.
