I will take lots of photos when I receive it and I start building it.
I have a feeling I kinda rushed my decision and I neglected the details. I don't even know if I will need any tools or oils that are not included in the box.
I might be unable to build it before I order more parts. I also don't have some of the required tools suggested in the manual.

The engines always come with a carb, go with the pipe the manufacturer (hopefully NOVAROSSI) recomend. Bear in mind, you will also need a starter box to suit the car.

yea i need lots of stuff but since i dont plan to drive it anytime soon, i wont be getting an engine just yet. The C01 put a dent to the wallet as it is and i also bought a few hop up parts for the TT-01E. I will wait a few months for spring weather and then I will get and engine and see if I can find a place to run it.

i am in London. Dead centre of london, 5 mins by foot from Oxford street.
The nearest area I got to test my r/c is Hyde Park but I dare not take them there.

Hyde Park for starters has very rough pavement. A buggy would have no problems there but my TT-01 and any other on road r/c will get stuck in potholes and bumps. Do I need to mention mud and pools?
There are people walking, jogging, playing football, horse riding, sunbathing, walking dogs etc etc.
Not exactly the place for any r/c car let alone a high performance one meant for smooth surface.

People don't tend to run low profile servos in ic cars unless space is limited, but they will work ok!
For running your ic car there are a few tracks in the London area ish, lol, crystal palace track is behind the athletics stadium, then you have colchester track, brooklands in Kent, adur on the south coast, mendip nr western supermare and Cotswolds, some are a fair drive, as for your electric car outdoors you have aldershot and west London track, am sure there will be quite aces indoor clubs too
