For the best bang of the buck, get the TT01-ED. With the Drift version, you will get more upgrades. The only thing, you will need to purchase wheel and tire separately. Buying the kit is cheaper compared to getting the TT01-E and do the upgrade. I've bought the TT01-ED version and used it for local Tamiya racing.

I just just bought the TT-01E Cusco Subaru Impreza RTR kit from Germany for only 100 which is a really good price for the kits from England. Over here, the build kit is over 130 alone (stupid 20% tax). Just got it today while I was building my TA-05 v2.

The finishing standard of Tamiya is second to none. I have a SC10 RTR as well and the standard isn't even close. I was well impressed, and with my 2.4 radio now have an awesome car. Gonna have to put the shell in some foam to keep it looking that good as there is no way I could have done it like that.

Not sure if I can buy another brand now. Can't fault them. Just waiting on the Ball bearings, and prop shaft so it will drive as well as it looks.

Yes the TT01ED is the better value of the available type E chassis's for the price. However you cannot go wrong with the TT01R type E as it has all you will ever need in a TT01, although it does not come with an esc or body.
The ED only comes with drift wheels so if you will be racing you will need to purchase the wheels of your choice (or as per rules of your race series) in addition to the kit.

Tamiya (#54026) TT-01 Alu.Prop.Joint Shaft
Tamiya (#54025) TT-01 Type E Ball Bearing Set
Tamiya (#53662) Turnbuckle Tie-Rod Set For TT01, TGS


Note that the standard old type TT01 bearing set is no longer available and the type E needs to be used. All bearings are the same size except that the type E includes 4 x 850 bearings that are used in the newly designed steering arms.

53620 is for the shaft only which uses the kit plastic/metal drive cups

Tamiya (#54026) TT-01 Alu.Prop.Joint Shaft, includes aluminium drive cups which are lighter than the kit drive cups and more precise/efficient!

My kit is a Tamiya TT01 with a spur- pinion of 58/23 and a Tamiya TEU 104BK with Tamiya brushed 28T GT tuned motor during my last 5 bashing sessions I already damaged 2 ESC what could be the problem ?
