hobbywing ezrun 35a ESC and 13 turn motor combo, available at several places around the web for CHEAP.

Most of the same places offer lipo battery packs and chargers to go with them for cheap too. I would recommend a hard case battery, just for extra protection (make sure it fits the car though).


For Replacement Ball Bearings use:
Qty. Size Location
12 5x11mm front & rear diff gears, hubs
4 8X12mm front & rear diff gears

The shocks and suspension upgrades Starteur listed are good too!

If you've got the plastic driveshaft, GET RID OF IT ! Especially before you put any decent motor in it. Otherwise, all the add ons Starteur suggested are smart to get. Have Fun !

Good handling car, but yeah, that plastic driveline has to go.
Lots of hop ups now for the TT-01 now.
