213 USD for a TT01-R?!

I would rather get a TB02. TB02 has all the stuff the TT01-R does, and more... and it's 2/3 the price of a TT-01R.

I'd only buy a TT01-R if it included a one-way and/or ball diffs.
Even then the TB02 would be the better buy.

They better lower the price on the TT01-R.

Where are you looking at? Tower Hobbies is going to sell it for $140 USD.

seen a thread or two about them.
Would like to definitely try it out...
But I guess taking it down with my TT01.. that'll be fun!! mwa ha haha

unless the TA05 kicks my butt...


let's hope not!
as for the TT-01R at 140USD... that's the price of a TB02 up here in Canada. I'd still get the TB02 at that price point.

you can try to take it out but only if it has a lousy driver.
same skilled driver he'll take u down with his ta05

But it does look cool with that tbevo4 blue propeller shaft. Too bad they didn't change the plastic to something harder like other kits. If they changed the suspension arms to the same design as tao4,tbo2 I have no doubt it will be just as good as those.

that's about standard price. that's the price the TB02 started at

By the way, I added a large capacitor (4700uF 35V) to my TT01 and the Tamiya ESC. Gonna take it for a run today to see how it runs!

Quick question guys:

I'm planning to run in GT2 for TCS (wootz! Hopefully I can make it on time!)

However, I am running a black can, but am unsure of whether I should use the plastic or aluminum center driveshaft.

The plastic driveshaft is WAY lighter... so was wondering if maybe it would be okay with the black can sport tuned?

Now that the Tamiya moulded inserts are discontinued, anyone knows of any other inserts that might work with the Type A or B using stock TT-01 wheels.

dugrant153 - The alum prop shaft is light and stiff. With the plastic shaft you'll just loose power when it flexes. For black cans you need all that punch and a one way is also needed to carry more speed on corners so you wont waste power from drag break effect.

danjoy25 - tamiya still makes 24mm shaped insert I think. Maybe you mean the 26mm insert which is not really recommended for electric touring cars. Time for a change, 24mm tires are the norm.

I do prefer 24 mm but it is for TCS stock racing, so I have to use tt-01 spec tires with only Type A or B rubbers. Can anyone suggest any moulded insert that might work or would the foam inserts do?

Ah for TCS. If you look at the tao5 pic attachment it has from left to right, medium narrow slick tire, medium narrow fiber molded Type A,B3 tires and shaped inserts soft, hard. I remember using Type A and B and they were already 24mm so those shaped insert for the tao5 should work. Most tamiya kits have 24mm now. Unless its different for other TT01 kits.

The Tamiya TT01 kit, as far as I know, comes with 26mm tires and rims. Or atleast, my kit did. 24mm comes with the more "intermeditate kits" and up (TB02, etc.)

I'll be using Type A's this Sunday :P (borrowed). If there is a rally class, I'll be running semi-slicks.
