Default TT-01 help

Does any company make a adjustable motor mount for tt-01?

Or are there any mods i can make to be able to slide the motor closer?

And what #T pinions have you used with the TT-01? (48pitch) I know they use module not pitch. But pitch should work....

No, "pitch" gears won't work, you must use 0.6 module, it does not have a standard spur.

I don't think anyone makes a sliding motor mount, the standard 8.34:1 from the 19/61 gears is as low a ratio as you can get, to be honest that is pretty low and you should be able to gear any sensible motor with it.

Oh okay, so I'll be ordering a.6module soon.

Any .6module pinion from 19-22t should work with the TT-01 and mesh right?

The manual has a full list of the gear ratios and where to fit the motor.

K i found the correct gears. It is now meshed perfectly.

Do you know any good hop up parts for the TT-01?

From my experience, aluminium centre shaft is one of the better upgrades to be done. The plastic shaft tends to bend at high speeds. Maybe some oil filled shocks.

If you think you're going to stay in the hobby for long, don't spend too much on a TT-01. Once you commit, get a TA05 or something that is better in every way. You'll save money, trust me

I'm only 13 So I am planning on staying with the hobby for a while....

But how long has the TT-01 been out? 10years?

And what type of bearings come with the stock TT-01?

Tt01 bearings are plastic and bronze stock.Spend $25.00 on the ball bearings and you will see a difference.Oil filled shocks help too.you can spend alot on these cars,My son who is 10 has one.I spend the $$$ on it because it is such a fun car to hop up.There are tons of parts by 3racing for it.Get the alum steering arms and tierod kit.The steering will be more responsive.
You can make it an e-type tt01 but putting the etype parts on it.
you CAN get a better car for less than you will spen hopping up the tt01,but it is not as much fun as the good cars have all the goodies usually.

ya i have a tamiya tto1 too, and im 15. i have 2 of them, with a lot of hop up parts, and i had that same problem with the gears too. the tto1 has limited gearing options. and no i dont think any other makes has a motor mount for the tto1. why did you want too move the motor closer? if you are trying to put on a smaller pinion gear(less teeth) and wont reach i recommend you to get a bigger spur gear. plus if you get a bigger spur gear you will not notice any loss of top end speed. if you go low with a small pinion gear and are able fit it with the 61t spur(stock) you will get a real fast take off but right after that punch you will not hVE ANY TOP END SPEED. trust me that aint prety

I would go with the adjustable tie-rod, aluminium drive shaft, and then also switch the bearings to ball bearings. They should be pretty cheap.
