Finally I can take those S turns.

Also some people say they like to drift with both diffs locked on the TT-01. I tried that and got a lot of understeer. How much would I loosen it up? I don't have a track to tell.

What did u use to lock yr diffs? What springs did you use for the front and rear? What type of tires do you use? Anyway, it's no fun you just drift by yrself right? Go down to the nearest DM and learn from there.

Does anyone know what setting the stock springs are on the TT-01?

Hard,medium?

And Should I go for red soft in the rear?

I drift, if that matters.

Mini chassis owners please help.
Is it true that a ABC mini shell cannot fit a M03 chassis?

The servo is positioned quite high on the M03, so there are some shells that might have fitting problems...

Really? Most ppl say that the front should be harder.

Do you know if the stock springs are hard or medium?

When I had my M03, I only use the standard M03 shells like Swift and Mini...Shells like Eunos roadster or S2k which is for M04, cannot be used...

If you go ABCHobby website, under the 1/10M body...They will write which shell is not available for M03 chassis...

I see that the wheelbase for all their shells are 208mm, so you need to use the shortest wheelbase for M03, which should be 210mm...

Most touring cars have harder front springs than the rear...

But for drifting, most people prefer softer front springs to allow more weight transfer to the front during off-throttle hence easier to swing the car around...

Stock springs, silver in color? That should be considered as soft...
