It's something you could do with the body on. Flip the truck, touch the swingarm pivots and look at the shocks. Or are you suggesting that the diffs should be dry, or light grease only?

Default TT01 to Euro Truck conversion

If I purchase the body set , wheels and tires to mount on my TT01 is it legal to race as a Euro truck ??

Just run them box stock... why is it so hard to stick too. Keep it the class it was always ment to be.
because there are guys that always have to win.

Personally I race this class for fun, -i've actually done well in it, but its totally for fun for me. Our club actually suggested not running it as a points race ..to take the seriousness out of it, ultimately we didn't go that route but I think it wouldn't have been a bad idea. Take the points and awards away and people may just stick to box stock.

The TT01e is slightly different, at least one of it's parts trees is "hard" plastic. I don't think you'd get caught... But by the time you bought a body set, wheels, and tires, you're deep down the path to just buying the whole kit. EG: 60 for the body set, $16 for tires, $8 for wheels. The whole kit is $135, and unless you have a TT01e, you'll be running the risk of being DQ'd.

For a second I thought you were going to say, "caught someone (illegally) packing silicone in their tires in place of foam inserts." especially with all the talk of these mods lately

I'm busy building my Euro Truck! I am amazed at the quality of this kit along with the fact you get a motor AND ESC for $135! All you need is a servo and receiver and you're good to go! SO far the Avid bearing kit I got for this for only $16.99 is working really well. I've learned to really "search" the part trees for the correct # part!! Good thing there's "pictures" because the descriptions are a bit lacking! I just wish they had real shocks instead of these friction things--but hey--it's a Cheap Truck!!

I have finished building mine and started running it on our streets. Will try to make it to some of this racetracks so I can see how good they perform.

Nice man,

It's almost more ideal for friction shocks, just for the lack of maintaining between the other real chassis cars

I love Hahn for that reason..Slap a battery between rounds and let it eat!
