Default Which kit?!

Hi all. I'm brand new to the forums, but have been doing a good amount of research prior to signing up. Anyway, I decided to get back into 1/10th 4wd touring (i used to have an hpi pro 2 way back) So i've been surfing the forums and hear a lot of talk about tamiya kits. Basically, i'm torn between the tt-01e and the tb-03. OR, if you have any other kit recommendations i'd be glad to hear them. (i've been out of the rc world for a while) I plan to just race this thing around my streets so i would prefer a shaft driven kit and plan to give brushless a try. Not really into drifting... Any input would be great. thanks!

It all comes down to budget wise, shaft driven or belt driven and depending on which class you are planning to run your chassis on. As for TT01-e and the TB-03, they are 2 different chassis as TT01 is base more on budget pack chassis while i find the TB-03 more durable as i have driven a TT01 & TT01E before. So you have to make a wise choice and discover more before throwing your money on the kit. Good luck.

Default TT-01(E) or TB-03

Check out these threads for more information on both chassis.

i'd say hpi pro4 or associated tc3 or tc4 both shaft drive and can pick either one up for a good price and still has good part support

Go TB03 if you like it. TT01 is less of a car than the one you had before, so it wouldn't make sense.

You also might want to consider parts support at your track... I'm so sick of having my own hobbyshop where I'm the only customer...

Bothe the TC3 and TC4 are are good cars and parts are very easy to get cheap too! Not to mention I've never been in a hobby shop that didn't have associated parts

If your running an odd Tamiya car then you better have a parts supply, . That's not to say they aren't durable but when they do break parts are kinda hard to find.

cool. thanks for all the feedback! i've been reading and starting to lean more towards the tb-03 unless anyone thinks the tt-01e is better for some reason, i'd be glad to hear why.
