Taking it further,Team Gold Ultra Low CG TT01 is now Ultralightweight at 1,060 grams like Bert's FGX



Without body it is 996 grams.


Key is to use a 95 gram 380 Brushless motor (8.5T) and 150 gram lipo. Faster than a regular 17.5T.



On track it is faster by 0.2s / lap than our car that won our last open modified class race.

So, we race box stock Euro truck, no upgrades, no oil filled shocks, nothing. But the truck hood thru the corners pretty bad, and I was curious if anyone had experimented with anything like foam, or a real heavy oil or anything in the shocks to cause a little damping? Iím looking for an edge and there is nothing in our rules that says we canít. LoL

Per the Tamiya USA TCS Euro-Truck rules, you are allowed to grease or lube any moving parts. Specifically it is rule 16.15

Here is a link to the TCS rules page...https://www.tamiyausa.com/tules/

Personally I've used Tamiya Friction Grease inside my dampers and it helps to lessen the bouncy nature with the stock dampers/springs. You can also use other types of grease or thick viscosity diff fluids on the dampers or inside the differentials to affect the handling of the vehicle. Just note due to the nature of friction dampers and open diffs that any type of grease or diff fluid WILL eventually leak out. Also any grease on the dampers can be exposed to dirt from the track and eventually needs to be cleaned and/or reapplied.

If you are racing your TT-01 kit, just make sure any changes that you make are legal or with-in the spirit of the rules or intent of the class where you are racing. Some tracks want to keep classes box stock to put the emphasis on budget or fun.

Check out the Euro-Truck thread here on R/C tech...Tamiya Euro Truck Class

It is a bit a fight to get it on, as the ring on the spur is a few tenths larger., but once on (you hear a clear click) it never get lose again, or touch the plastic.
Not quite never. Not sure how it got loose, as it was pressed tight against the spur to start with. The groove you see was worn into it by the pin holding the spur gear.

Team Gold Prototype

Carbon fiber center shaft with center bearing to remove high speed oscillation



Rear carbon and plastic composite arms for traction and stability



Front 8degree KPI steering knuckle for more steering with less tire scrub



Lower cg with 80gram placed very low and centralized under the center shaft channel and battery cutout slots

Please use short progressive springs to eliminate chassis rubs, and you will be fast....
