Default TT-01D hopup

Hi all, I am a newbie with TT-01D I would like to know what are usually the Most important and essential hopup parts that drifters would usually get for their cars first. I have seen many people with aluminum drive shaft. But. I don't know if it is essential hopup and whether I should buy it or not and whether it is expensive. Please give me some opinions and suggestions. Thanks! :-)

essentials would be just the centre alu shaft kit...

other than that, just enjoy ur car first, till u decide to do something funny to it..

my kids have a TT01 each, and one of them is a rallly cum touring.. and is now on its way to become a pickup truck... something similar to the XV01-T.

if u wan more power, then pick up a brushless set for it. a 12T should give u loads of power with correct gearing.. else, juz stick with a tamiya sports tuned motor with stock esc...

u using it for touring or drifting? then select ur tyres from there.. tyres selection oso dependant on the track surface...

centre shaft set from stargek.

12t brushless combo set, u can check the sales forum... but u wld nd the correct pinion and spur to gear it properly.

does ur TT01 D comes with the tamiya black color sports tuned motor. if yes, then u can use that first... that quite a good motor too..

Yes it comes with a black motor. How much did you pay for your centre alu shaft?

Oh I c.. Thanks! :-) and I also heard that there is an aluminium hopup part that can increase the steering angle. Do you know what it is and where to get it?

bro... a word of advise... the TT01 is a good starting kit... and is a good cross platform to start with, be it for touring, drifting, rally and such.. do not worry bout all the fanciful stuff first, till u have mastered the basics and such..

once u gotten the hang of it, u might look into upgrading into other chassis to get more fun out of the sport, and the TT01 might retire as a shelf queen or appear on the sales forum.

being said, for me, i have 4 TT01 at home. 1 shelf queen, and 1 each, for me and my kids. my TT01 is TAC legal, ready to have some TAC fun anytime, and the only mod on it is the alu steering and center alu shaft. my son is bone stock with center alu shaft, whereas my daughter TT01 is a rally. we still enjoy TT01, but juz dun feel the need to upgrade it with all the fancy stuff to max out the fun we have with it. i rather be spending the money on tyres, and such, or on my other cars.

as u mentioned that u r a newbie, i wld suggest to get the correct tyres for ur drift, centre alu shaft and loads of play time with it. getting a rc shd not bog u down with tweaking it. u shd be bashing it, playing it and such, and understand it's pros and cons first, before upgrading it slowly.. also, check out the forums if ur area had a drift meet or such. like d west area had the SGdrifters meet on a weekly basis and such..

now, back to ur question on a front one way.

a front one way basically allows independent movement of the front wheels for individual rotation speed, allowing u to pull a drift longer, or in touring, to clear a sharp corner faster. is basically like a LSD effect in real live car.

a better explanation over here.. http://www.competitionx.com/rc-racin...-differential/

last but not least, my apologies if u feel offended. i believe most of us would be willing to help and answer ur questions when u encounter issues during play and such. however, there is a dedicated TT01 thread available to answer most performance questions related to the TT01 chassis.

Jang with TT01 as a budget racer...


http://www.competitionx.com/project-...-drift-tt-01e/

compX with TT01 as drift.

u may oso refer to this 2 articles on tuning ur TT01, and u wld realise that having the best hopups does not mean it wld be good. u might end up not enjoying the totally uncontrollable drive and tink that the car is a piece of junk in due time.
