Default Tamiya TT-01 XB

Hello RCTech users, I would like to ask a question about the Tamiya TT-01 XB.

My question is: Does the Tamiya TT-01 XB Come with the Battery and charger?
I'm planning on getting one, BTW. I know it has a stand connector and requires a 6Cell Battery. I will purchase it in November. I have four other friends who are also planning on purchasing it. We will purchase other Tamiya Bodies as well.

Will someone please give me some advice, as well as answering my question.

This should help. http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=57751

The XB's are a good start but there might be a better alternative depending on what you're planning to do. You didn't say if this was just to play arouned with your friends or are you planning to race somewhere or start your own club ?? Either way, Tamiya is one of the best out there.

Thanks Evoracer. However, I was mostly looking for info on TT-01 XB... My Budget is $500 on everything in all Including the Car, Battery, etc. I plan to maybe race around with friends, race place and start a club. On the other Hand, there aren't any people I know of in Queens NY, NYC that have RC Cars and would challenge us. There aren't any RC tracks that I know of either. So I want to make one of those too (I don't know where to make it though... Something similar to these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TraY...eature=related , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8cP9...eature=related , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq2Ld..._order&list=UL , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sV3mrNyye_g ).

Any suggestions? I'm new to the RC Hobby and so are my Four Friends who will join the club and were planning on getting TT-01's. I don't want anythnig too complicated which is why I wouldn't recommend for me to buy and RC Kit and build it. I want something like the TT-01, If not the TT-01. I would like to do small modifications. I'm planning on getting the Tamiya TT-01 R35 GTR with led lights, etc. I would appreciate if anyone could help me out with modifing it... Once again, nothing too complicated.

Can someone also give me a link to a trusted website that comes with everything I need for my Tamiya TT-01 Nissan R35. Heres the link to the car:
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=57801
The only things I'm missing is the 6 Cell Battery Pack with Standard Connector and the Charger to go with it. This car cost 430USD so far... I would be looking for a 2500-3500mAh Battery. Hopefully there would be some money for be to buy exhaust for the car (Design).

There are a lot of people in Queens who run RC cars, we just haven't got a track in Queens. I go to SI to race.

Dont waste your $$. TT01s's are too low tech, you will still need to spend more $$ on it just to make it usable, bearings, metal centreshaft

Much much better cheap RC cars available, TC4, TF5, CycloneS,TB03,TA05
These are good enough to race in Stock class, & still really tough

I thought about Cyclone S... But I've heard bad things about HPI... BTW, I want a shaft driven RTR Car... Not Belt Driven. I want it to go atleast 25 MPH and able to drift. I don't know anyone who has better bodies than Tamiya... I also would wnat a well known company that doesn't give lots of problems...

Tamiya TB03. or TB03d . Shaft drive, much better suspension, motor mount & steering design.
Its sort of like a MODERN version of TT01 .

TT01 are good for drift & bashing, obsolete for anything else.
Seriously, there are much better cars than TT01. I have owned 2 of them.
Any other respected RC company would be ridiculed it they continued to sell a car like that, that needs hop-ups before it can be used (bearings , centreshaft )
