I looked at mine last night, A front one looks pretty easy to make up but not so much in the rear. I run my car on a dusty tennis court and the car is pretty tail happy as is even after playing with a bunch of stuff so maybe just a front one would help.

Cheers,

Last year when I raced my type S, I drilled 2 holes in lower half of bulkhead and secured the sway bars using the sway bar holder tabs that came with a Top Sabre Car.. they’re a little longer than Tamiya. The movement was not perfect / even but it kind of worked.

My next thought was to use the separate sway bar piece that comes with TA05.. but never tried.. because I stopped racing the Type S..

Car was super capable and I was hanging in there with X-ray T4s .. durability of the chassis was a problem for me. The 2 screws that secure the rear suspension holder are not enough.. and if you catch a rail with the rear axle stub..’it will tear the whole rear end off lol.. did that 3 times! Last time was with the hardened chassis which is now discontinued

My Ride USGT tires finally died last week. I was running them with the Carrera body which needs a 3MM offset in the front (easy) and a 9MM offset in the rear (not so easy). A set of 9MM HPI black Emotions came up on eBay so I scooped them up as well as getting the last set of Ride 26MM Radials I could find. I burned a couple packs yesterday morning and the Ride Radials hook up much better on the tennis courts then the USGT tires and their higher profile makes them look a bit more scale.

I am running an under geared 10.5T motor and I have to say it is a blast, it is pretty quick but still gives decent run time. I set my timer for 10 minutes and that is proving to be very safe. When I originally switched from the 17.5 I was nervous that I would start to blow stuff up.Knock on wood I believe this was run 16 & 17 with the 10.5, after 50-55 runs on the 17.5, and no issues at all. This may come down to the fact that the tennis courts get pretty dusty so they do not offer a lot of traction....with the 10.5 I an get some pretty decent four wheel burnouts when taking off from a start.

Cheers,
Jim

I stumbled across this on eBay today. It's the TT-01, not the TT-02, but still, it seems like it misses the point of the TT model line.

They're aimed at the people who want bling, more than they want performance. They're "mostly" for the drift people.

Hey guys! New to the forums.

Im building a tt-02 rally setup, i was looking at the Gmade 62mm Shocks, i know the stock shocks are 55mm, but i measured and it looks like the 62mm`s will fit, can anyone confirm?

Default Sandshaker...

The TT02-T Sandshaker uses 60mm shocks as well. You have to remove some little knobs from the knuckles to give the suspension more travel. Please see sandshaker manual for Details.
I'm doing a mix of Rally TT02 and Sandshaker at the moment and also want to use some 60mm shocks for this thing. Maybe I will use either the Yeah Racing ones or some of the multiple Tamiya choices. Hobbyking offers 61mm shocks from Turnigy, they don't look too bad and are on the cheaper side, but not sure about the quality. Maybe I will give them a try...

Thanks to RCRacer update... I learned that the TT02 RR that is being released has an oil filled gear diff!!! That will be a useful part to buy.

also comes with the Hard Blue chassis.. which Tamiyausa had said was discontinued! hmm

Recently, I ran some Dirt Oval races at Lake in the Hills, IL, Hobbytown. They run a TT Class in their parking lot series. Here's a video of the cars in their dirt oval series.

Hey guys,
this past weekend my son broke the steering knuckle on my TT02drift spec type s.
I can not find the part number for a replacement knuckle. The manual lists the part number for the standard pivot ball design non s, but not the s.
I've checked everywhere online and all I keep finding is the non s steering knuckle.
help!
thanks
