go to the tamiya website and look up the TT-01d drift spec kit. see the option parts that come with that kit and order them. That kit is a good drifter out of the box. A good set of drift tires will be the best start...locked diffs and a drift motor.

in my opinion, most recommended hop ups to turn your tt01 into a drift car is the aluminium drive shaft and good set of ball bearings, and not forgetting drift tyres. this is the basic hop ups recommended for TT01 and this helps your tt01 to go sideways better.

hope this helps,

exact....LLLYYYY

Super T Drift; good luck getting them on. On youtube there is a video... showing a guy boiling water, and literally 20 seconds after, you dip them in for about 5-10 seconds, and use your bare hands to get them on the rim. This worked for me but my hands were screwed for days (well worth it )

I just got a sprint 2 drift yesterday; I was getting sick of the off balance and old TT01. Tamiya served me good though; now it's been retired.

Superdrift-tech tyres, ball bearings,metal centre driveshaft.
Thats all you need.

Dont get caught in Tamiya's 'hopup' con. You can easily spend 3x what the car is worth on upgrades. Considering what it cost, it should have come with these 3 basic 'upgrades' as standard (look at the ofna JL10e spec's)

Save your money for a better car (just get the basic upgrades)
TT01 are good for drift, just dont put too much money into it from here.
