This Forums' First Question: Knowing that LiPO batteries are better, what mAh should I get to get long-lasting run-time and more power; something the chassis could handle.

A battery is a battery is a battery.....the mah rating is the size of the gas tank. The larger the number, the bigger the tank. A larger tank/battery will weigh more but give you more run time. Go Big or Go Home!!!!!!

The S rating [2s, 3s, 6s] is the power/voltage.

Just be sure the electronics can handle the power.

2s is about all the TT-01 will handle, given it's limitations.

One of the first mods you might want to consider is replacing all the shitty plastic bearings with proper ball bearings. A set only cost me around 10 on ebay.... much smoother, less friction - more speed - don't forget to grease them!

Well, as I said, I'm a newbie with these type of things...So I might need help with the whole process.

There's another forum if your interested called Tamiya TT-01 that has a lot of advanced info floating around the electric tech somewhere. I've been around the TT-01 for awhile but hopefully someone can help and this will hopefully be beneficial to everyone reading.

Got a DE10 duratrax sec with a 17.5 ballistic 25p 55s. The motor is winding out and the sec is averaging 24mph. Is that normal or could using non Tamiya gears be the cause like in few models? Pitch is all the same just after market everything. Thanks everyone!

If you are using oil shocks, TRF's or CVA's, run a hard spring in rear Tamiya blues and a red spring up front. The flourescent red spring is a little softer than the TRF white spring (think the white paint stiffens it up a little).
If your camber is set to 0 degrees all round then add a degree of negative camber on the rear to give the front more grip.

Some useful info for beginners that want to know the difference between the old and new type E. All new parts are compatible with old ones.

If I understand you correctly you are wanting to flip them over 180 degrees, correct?

If so then you will be shortening the wheel base. This is required for certain Tamiya bodies such as the Porsche 911 or Toyota MRS.
