+1

I know someone who had a TT-01 with a 3.5T(before Lipo batteries). He had spent a whole load of money upgrading the plastic parts so it didn't strip something everytime he thought of touching the throttle, and then the back half of the diff casing ripped off the chassis because of the diff being forced away from the connecting gear under power.

It will be much cheaper in the long run to buy a car that can handle the power.

I'm not quite sure how to respond to that ridiculousness. Here are 2 ideas

I'm glad I learned to take what I find on the internet "with a grain of salt"

Secondly,

Dude you have no idea how much you are making a fool of yourself, being so arrogant after asking perfectly good advice for your supermarket car. The TT01 can handle a silvercan-ish motor for 24hours non stop, it's been done, but anything more than that is asking for trouble.

Now bookmark this page, and come back in a few years to apologize.

I never saw the second page of this thread till now. These comments are hilarious. My TT01 has a 5.5T in it with nothing but upgraded bearings. I have ran it on a 6000mah 25c 2S battery for 50+ runs topping it out at 44MPH on stock gearing. Its been a resilient car. The only thing I have had to replace is a rear arm/shock when my crappy 15 dollar servo wouldnt center and it hit a car tire at almost full speed. Also... years of experience only go so far in this hobby. Most of this stuff has not been out that for that long.

You don't put grease between the pinion and the spur gear right? It would be a very bad idea to introduce grease there...

Right. It needs to be dry in there.

So... it broke down.

The problem was incorrect assembly. Operator error. Not the car's fault.
