So the A parts treeTAM51318 is out of stock all over. Anyone know where they may have them in stock? Would part tree from TT01 TAM51002 work?

The biggest difference between the 2 parts you listed is that Tamiya #51002 has the shock tower as part of the gear box cover. Also the shock tower only has 1 mounting position as compared to Tamiya #51318 which has 2. I will dig through my parts box and see if I have the tower from 51002 (I do not).

If you are racing your TT-01E as a Euro Truck, this type of part swap would be against Tamiya rules. However most clubs will allow a temporary exception if this is what it takes to get a broken car back on the track. However if you are racing, have you reached out to other local racers to see if they have the part you need. Anyone who races Tamiya cars such as these often ends up with plenty of spare parts because of how the parts trees are designed.

Is there a particular part of the 51318 parts tree that you need?

Anyone have any tips on setting up the truck to get more steering out of it?

On some tracks I sauce the whole front tire and only the inner half of the rear so I can get it to rotate in the corners. A lot of it is driving technique.

2.5 million fluid in the front and anti seize grease in the rear diff. Running on carpet I CA the side walls of the tires. They are very different track to track and it is a challenging class if you have fast drivers at your track. Seen lots of people quit Euro Truck before figuring it out. I would talk to the fast guys at your track and see how they are setting up trucks and ask for driving tips.

I'm not running to TSC rules, and was wondering what tyre inserts would fit the truck tyres? Was thinking a combination of 53204 and 53113?

always make front diff as tight as possible without locking it up. Rear should be less tight and should be played with to see what suits you.

Any recommendations on what grease/oil to run in the front?

Iím currently running red automotive grease in both front and rear.

Some people use

Tamiya TRF Gear Differential Putty #42247 or Gravity RC GRC420 for front. For rear the grease you're using may be fine. I myself have been using the kit grease that comes in the tube and has been fine. I am in rebuild mode atm so will probably go a little thicker.

Just curious. Has any one had a problem with the diff cases binding up the diff when tightened down? Building a second kit I had lying around for about two years and I'm having this problem. My first kit I had didn't have this problem.
