You will have to buy them as individual spares. The BMW is effectively a re-release of an old body on a TT-01 chassis, the actual complete body kit wouldn't have been re-issued, Tamiya USA show it as discontinued.

To build up the whole body it looks like you would need to source...

#0005455 H Parts
#0115097 J Parts
#1825295 Body
#9495433 Sticker

Won't be cheap!

Have a TT01 and never used it racing. Car seems to be pretty light. I would like to use for TCS GT3 racing, will it make a good GT3 racer? What modifications would you'll suggest over box stock?

So, my Vette body needs to be 200 mm wide and it should be good to go? I found a C5R Protoform Body that I like.

200mm shells are for nitro cars and look a little wide on a TT-01 (wheels get lost in the arches), but they will still fit.

Ideally you want a 190mm shell on a TT-01.

You could use the Enzo axles to get a wider track width at the rear end.
Might look good on a Corvette.

@rctouringracer: Except from those alloy turnbuckles I mentioned the TT01 is a pretty solid car. Two weeks ago an Xray FK07 smashed his front suspension when he came on the wrong side of the track and hit my TT01. Ok, I have to admit that the body didn't look too good after the 24HR race (pic shows 2004 car):

I just checked the GT3 regulations. I doubt that even a hopped up TT01 will be a competitor for the out-of-box TA05. But if you still want to use your TT, you should get ball bearings, alloy main shaft, oil filled dampers, alloy motor mount, adjustable toe-in front and 2 degree rear hubs.

killed my tt01 yesterday stripped the threads out of the front gear box cover and a big crack pretty much down the center of the chassis and bust one of my new oil shocks poor thing didnt like hitting a curb at full speed, broke my servo too, ordered a new chassis and the other parts will use my spare servo (if it works) the shell has alot of cracks and splits in the front too.

not sure what happend i think it lost signal or something, i should get one of those fail safe things

Would these fit the TT-01's tie-rod, and adjustable upper arms front and rear?

Tamiya (#53892) 3x10mm Alu. Turnbuckle Shaft

I've been stripping spurs and pinions on my TT01 as well until i have to mount the motor closer to the spur. the spur seems to get loose after some hard bashing. the TT01 is pretty tough. but then its only weakness is the motor mount as its not that adjustable. i was using a yok s-pro 11T2W motor and it just flies. rally bashing it also killed some of my spurs, but it runs great using stock motor for normal bashing though.

Anyone here been stripping spur gears and pinions as well?

i've checked my motor mounting and the solution came when i mounted 1 less space than the recommended diagram did. that worked!

Me and my friends never had a problem with the spur gear or pinion.

Looked good even after 550miles:

I see..

Can i ask what kind of motors you folks are using?

I broke the plastic motor mount, the gear cover, the spur and pinion using my 11T motor..geared at 25/55. wire desoldered itself too.

when i ran stock, no problems..

what metal shaft cup is that and which metal shaft are u folks using too?

Saw the other thread that you post. Didn't know that TT01 can be this "exciting". Thinking of building another stock TT01 for Rally.

Ok, I have to admit it never crossed my mind to put an 11T in the TT. The motors we drive in the TCS and in the 24hrs race are Carson Cup Machines, 23T, fixed timing, not rebuildable (about 7$ each) and not pretty fast. Top speed with 27/55 approx. 42km/h. The gearing you mentioned seems too long for an 11T, so this is why your cables desoldered. Probably your plastic motor mount melted or deformed at least and this killed the gears (improper gear mesh). The shaft you see in the picture is from the TT-R (cup and shaft is one piece).
