for the most part a tt01 is a great drift car. chuck a bit more power at it(something brushless preferrably) and run that power on lipo batterys then get out and practise

Anything you can do to help the steering and get more angle.

Lots of drift forums with specific sections on tto1 tuning and setups.

my first chassis, like alot of drifter's chassis, was the tt-01, i still have it laying around as a matter of fact, the one thing to do if you havent already is get an aluminum shaft, definitely lock the diff, and any motor out of the stock motor will work, most people will say go brushless, go brushless, go brushless, but that chassis is super small and fairly light, and if the motor is TOO fast your going to experience alot of spin outs and not enough drifts....now you will get use to it but all in all just know your level in speed and dont overdue the amount of power you put in that chassis...but just like Momo said, the biggest issue with the tt-01 is angle, it just doesnt give enough of it, now you can hide the lack of angle with a fair amount of speed, because then you can just powerslide into the corner but then that wont be drifting lol...take his suggestion, once you are comfortable with the feel of the tt-01 your going to get more hungry for angle...so look up "steering mods for the tt-01", along with a better servo (when the time comes)...until then, enjoy your chassis and add those small enhancements to it for now!

Buy an RC car. Preferably electric (battery powered)most people start drifting with a tamiya TT-01 cheap because you will crash and reliable) but nitros can work too just cut extra holes to make sure the engine gets cooled sufficiently. 4WD on-road car is a must.(No buggies, truggies or trucks)


2:- Choose tires. You can get special tires (Yokomo, Hpi, Tamiya, etc., etc.) make your own or wrap your tires in electrical tape.
3:- Go out in an open space.
4:- Drive forwards and build up speed.
5:- Turn sharply and floor the throttle.
6:- Follow through. The car should now be sliding, steer into the slide and use the throttle progressively to control the slide
7:- Power out of the slide.
8:- Practice, Practice, Practice
