I guess I am going to go with 55/25 gearing. I like it on my other car. I see alot of people running it in this thread also.

Default SHOCKS

anyone have any comments on the shocks available? I have I think the stock oil filled shocks and wanted to know if it was worth upgrading to the flourine coated or TRF shocks.

Also will the adjustable upper arms really make that much of a difference in a TT-01E or TGS?

I've run my TL-01 with no camber adjustments and it drives great, just a little rough on foam tires.

The plastic oil filled shocks work well. If you're running foam tires, being able to adjust the camber will help even out the wear. You can also tune the car's handling a lot more.

Default fast motor

hey guys,

what's the fastest motor a TT-01 can handle?

I've heard it can only handle up tp 19turns, anything much powerful

than that can rip the gearbox cover off.

25/58 gearing, hitting speeds of about 45-50mph and temps are normal across the boards.

Question for you guys.


Been looking to get into the onroad thing for some time now.. i bought a tt01 for close to nothing a few months back and now i got it running and ready to go !

My question is this, People are saying that the tt01 will basically get smoked in a race due to the fact it doesnt have the tunability to tc4 or equivelant. I know the ball bearings are a great upgrade alot with knowing how to drive the car.. but what hop ups are there to increase the tunability of the car and what can you not tune on the car as it sits rtr ?

thanks !

Last year I decided to race the cheapest kit Tamiya makes in their TCS races (the TT-01 Enzo for $85 with a speed control) and keep the upgrades to the bare minimum to be competitive (I even kept the friction shocks). Look at post #835 way back in this forum for my list of upgrades and thoughts. As a side note, also look at post #871 for a better update to the gear ratios table.

I gave away the car to a 6th grader to race in the spec class at TCS and he cleaned up the field. I got the itch again and so just bought another TT-01 Enzo and finished putting it together today.

The TT-01 may be hard pressed to compete with the carbon fiber cars designed for Mod motors and such, probably better to get another car rather than spend upgrading a RTR TT-01, but if you are running silver can or maybe even 17.5T/27T for a while it won't take too much.

For more tuning, you may want to consider, adjustable arms, oil shocks, ball diffs, chassis stiffener, sway bars, & ball diffs.
