My 7 year old son is making a start in on road racing. (He has only had toy grade r/c's before) and will have a tt01e.

I will start him out with box spec.

In the next few races if his game improves, I will put the following in.

ballraces, 27t motor.

After that, I will give him my ta05 to go even faster

I dont think it is a car that will handle too much motor, the driveshafts and propshaft are all plastic and will wobble under heavy load.

An all stock TT-01, with a Tamiya Sport Tuned Motor, is all your son will want/need. No adjusting, handles well with nice tires. After a year, the TA05 will be needed when the laps around a course get faster!

I will be keeping a close eye on his progress

If he has racing in his blood, he will soon be shown the ta05, which had a twin deck 3racing graphite chassis and trf shocks, no stopping him then!
