Default Tamiya TT-01D Drift Setup Help!

Hey guys,

I have a TT-01D spec...and I need some assistance and I am asking what kind of setups you guys are running in your cars. All i have done to my car is put in a new aluminum shaft, and so far is has been drifting very well. I use ABS tires that i have cut and routed myself and they work awesome, as for my motor, i am using a Novak Brushless drift motor, it has more than enough power and torque! But what i have been noticing lately is sometimes i cant keep the drift going, and sometimes i have problems whipping out the back end for the perfect apex for the drift...please let me know your setups as it would great help me! Thank You! If you guys are interested i have some pictures of my drift car and also Movies i have made from the video game GRID! Very cool stuff... Please leave comments and your setups as far as droop, toe in-out, possible hop-up parts needed or recommended, etc. Thank you! Camber and also Toe is would be awesome...i am currently having problem with those...and i am also using a normal battery pack the side-by-side cells that u can buy at Hobby Town USA.

I have my diffs locked and it seems like my car slides forever may be non-related but who knows. Also setting your camber to 0 may help and going into the turn with more speed.

Yeah that possibly could be the case...i think mine are locked...but i was wondering what your drift setup is as far as camber and toe-in and out...i really dont know my settings because i dont have any of those tools like gauges and what not...i think i need to make a stop at S & N's Trackside here in Milwaukee! And maybe once i get my setup tuned right ill start making sessions for drifting :P...who knows but yeah...thank you for commenting! So do you have any suggestions on that? Like what i should do...and also my turning is weird too...maybe i should add some weight to the front end for apex's better?

I have the TT-01R so it has aluminum shaft and to do camber i just used something that stands upright and adjusted the wheel until it was flush with the upright item and the ground. I'm toed out a little but I don't have any measuring tools either. I use a 17t double and 6 or 7 cell nimhs, but i have some 2s on the way from hobbycity.

Lock your rear diff, Tamiya's you pack it with blue tac, Yokomo you use superglue. Also some weight in the front can help but too much wont help, it's a fine line.
As for hop ups you can get underdrive kits and varius other parts, try rc-race-and-drift.com (i think thats it)
But mostly it's practice, practice, practice and trial and error.

you can get away with just locking the diff.. or both(i have both front and rear locked)
The rear is a single alloy piece, get rid of everything in the diff housing and pop the solid locker in.
the front in mine is a bluetak special.
I have also bought aftermarket shocks and ive wound em down a bit to get it lower.

Well today im gonna try and figure out the problem is exactly so...i will get back to you guys on how it goes...but otherwise i would love to see your r/c drift cars/bodies...and does anybody know where i can get drift style bodies from anymore? I think the only ones i can get are from like proline, HPI, and HotBodies...otherwise...thats it...because Yokomo went out of business and shut down their online store ...i have a yokomo and dont know what to do with it...because im missing some parts like for the steering... so...yeah SOFL there!

You still play CS? Add me up if you do, "rocky8333". Not into competitive CS as much anymore, just L4D, but hey w/e.

As for drifting, I think the biggest difference you see (like some guys have said) is locking diffs. That changed the feel more than anything, makes the car more consistent, etc.

For Yokomo cars, check out http://www.genkidoridori.com/ he has quite a few bodies and some Yoke parts.

"counter steer" mod is a overdrive mod for rear differential. If you dont know what it is, you probably dont have it on your car.

Saw a few clutch, 4k, 3k, deag shots on your youtube, figured I'd ask . I've got BC2 just never got into it enough. Anyway, nice car, you'll only end up spending more money in the hobby.

Dude no toe out ! Toe out is gunna slow you down a bit! you want toe in! Its critical for Nose diving and hitting your clipping points! and so far as camber I run -2 out back to lessen the contact patch, more of a contact patch = more traction and as far as the Diff most def lock it up!

And Yokomo makes a counter steer kit! It helps alot!

And get you a GYRO or the D-box its like $99.00

It lets me get crazy angles at crazy speeds way before the apex
