Just a heads-up for those who has a TT-01. I just came back from the Tamiya Worlds in Japan and 2 TT-01s finished in the top 10 of the N1(GT2) class. One of the Australians managed to qualify 3rd and another Japanese made the A using this chassis. I brought two cars to the event, a TB02 and TA04. I ended up using the TA04 but was almost regretful that I didn't bring the TT-01.

I placed 8th in qualifiying and ended up 7th after the triple mains. For the Australian, he qualified 3rd but had traction issues during the mains and ended up 9th overall. Not really sure what the other TT-01 ended up at... but believe me, they were fast!
What kind of hopups did they have?
And what tires?
I need setup details for my own TT01 (coming)

I also have a TT-01 I dont race seriously just for fun, but i want it to go just that bit faster without spending too much.

At the moment i got an aluminium shaft, full bearing set, and 22T pinion, I'm running a sports tuned motor and i have take off 27, and a tamiya TEU101BK esc.

Are all the hop ups necessary? I know the oil shocks make a difference but as in the alloy wishbone suspension, dogbone, axel hubs and motor mount, and even the battery holder.

Oh and what ESC and motor would u recommend i use on a TT01 so thats it fast but still handles around the track.

well, after running the TT01 for the first time, I DO think this car has potential. Stock for stock, it's lighter than the TB01.

I found the Tamiya ESC (TEU 101BK) pretty good, but I'm finding it glitches for me (if anyone has any tips on this, please help!). A Novak would be a good investment for an upgraded ESC. Or even an LRP.

well, after running the TT01 for a while, I gotta say that I love it. It's a great chassis. I'm upgrading the gearing and hopefully making it faster cuz it's really torquey and slow right now.

(silly silver can)

rays_tt,
The alloy wishbone suspension is probably all bling right now. same goes with the battery holder and the axle hubs. I just ordered the motor mount, though. It's good cuz plastic flexes when it heats up, and if your motor heats up, it can flex your plastic motor mount.

If you wanna upgrade, get the adjustable arms, toe-in adjustment, rear toe-in uprights. (that's my next path after I get my gears. I don't have these yet).

I'm then going to go with a universals, ball diff, front-one-way, and sway bars if I need that extra bit of chassis stiffening.

After, if I feel like it, maybe the alloy stuff. But that's last. The alloy may actually put more weight on the car thus making you slower (Although the parts will be more durable).


here's my current setup:
Tamiya TT01 - Ford Escort WRC
Novak Elektra ESC
Hitec Lynx AM
Futaba R122JE receiver
Jr servo
Stock 540 motor (silver can)
19 pinion/61 spur (Stock)

Hopups:
-Tamiya bearings
-Tamiya aluminum shaft
-Tamiya carbon fiber reinforcement
-Tamiya TB01 oil shocks

dugrant153 :

what are the adjustable arms, toe-in adjustment, rear toe-in uprights, universals, ball diff, and front-one-way? and what do they do?

Thanks.

hi i think i can help a liltle bit the adjustable arms can make you camber the wheels on the car rear toe in upright i dont know and i think the front one ways are used to slow RC cars using just the rear wheels

hope that helps

adjustle arms: like, kid TT01 said (thanks kid tt01), it allows you to have camber. If you're looking at a car from the front, and it has negative camber, your tires will look like this:

// \\

positive camber:

\\ //

these camber settings will affect the way your car handles. Normally, you want negative camber (// \\) for your car, not positive.


rear toe-in upright: this allows you to have toe-in in your rear tires. Toe-in is a bit more confusing, but basically having rear toe in will create stability in straight lines. (You can get a toe-in mod for the front, which will make steering more responsive, but it can be a negative thing too).
looking from the top down, this is what your tires will look like with rear toe-in uprights:

|| || (front)


// \\ (rear - with rear toe-in)


ball differential: A ball differential is different than a gear differential in that you can set up how tight or loose the differential is. With a gear differential, when you spin your rear right tire, your rear left tire will spin counter clockwise always. With a ball differential, you can set it loose so that when you turn your rear left tire, your rear right tire might not move (spin slower than the other tire) or if you set it tight, have it so that both move forward... I think...

front one-way: Not sure how this works, but apparently, it can make your car faster in the corners. I *think* how it works is that normally when you are in a turn with a normal gear diff, your outside tire (the one farthest from the turning apex) is spinning forward and your inside tire (closest to the turning apex) is spinning backwards. With a front one-way, your tires will always be spinning forwards (both of them). This essentially pulls your car out of turns faster.

Essentially, these mods can make you potentially faster on the track, but only if you know how to use them.


Sorry if I'm long winded. I just love talking about handling
If I'm wrong in any of this, please correct me!

I'll definitely get it, but as a future modification only. You have to learn to drive with it cuz I think it's harder to brake with it.
