Tough, can be found cheap, top heavy, not a good car for serious racing. What else?

Its a really tough car! Not for serious racing.But if you're talking about just bashing and maybe drifting.

Can be also used to learn how to drive,handles relatively well.

Maintainance can be a killer!!

Other then that I like my TL-01.Still have it in my store somewhere...

they're solid as a brick

cheap and handle reasonably well

low maintenance, I don't think i have touched mine i 2yrs of solid racing other than replacing a worn out motor

Strong, good for bashing around, but can't handle. Thing traction rolls easily. Suspension is near unbreakable.

Its tough, but if you ever wanted to drive a straight line, good luck! The lack of adjustablility on the stock model drove me insane. But yea, its tough. I ran a stock 27T combined with the speed tuned kit, and it was like a big heavy rocket! Except the fact that it has problems driving straight lines, I kissed the sidewalk too many times!

The long-span kit makes them much more adjustable. I think you can buy TL-01 kits with that stuff on it already. The kit changes them over to using regular (early) Tamiya touring car arms, uprights and c-hubs...comes with sway bars and a BUNCH of other stuff.

you can gain speed by replacing the motor, but what would be better is spending money on some bearings if you havn't already as replacing plastic bushings will increase runtime and put less strain on the motor
