What were you expecting? Graphite, carbon,and al parts everywhere? The TT line has always been geared more to the lower/mid market segment.

TBH I am more excited over that 458 Italia body than the car itself.

Well, I was expecting at least steel dogbones, proper friction dampers and C-hub-type suspension.. TL-01 was also low cost and it had these basic things..

Some low-cost chassis with same or even lower price have FRP parts, aluminium motor holders and oil dampers... Why TT doesn't?

If you convert the price listed on that German site, they say the price is $230.

No ball diffs, Diffs are carryover TT01.

More interesting is the shorter prop with longer front gear shaft.
Receiver box is a nice idea, but who will mount the ESC then above the Servo?
Not me for sure...

Nevertheless, very important car for Tamiya...

BR,
Matthias

Want to see the specs on tt02, specifically the weight comparing with tt01e. The chassis has rally/water resistant in mind plus lipo packs as well.

not bad for the low bux, but id probably get a sakura for $100, or xv01 for $200. wasnt impressed with the tt01 to work on, even if it is supposed to be a cheap entry level broad spectrum chassis. I do not understand buying low and spending a ton of money on upgrades when you can just buy the better car from the start.

buy it just for the fun limited mod class , we here have a TT01 class with little hop ups allowed and fixed gearing and that is the greatest class i have seen

this will be my next chassis if they bring out the R version and it is allowed in our TT01 class next winter ;-)
