Tt-01

Well first I want to say hi, I am new to these forums but not rc. So I just wanted to ask about the Tamiya TT-01. From what it seems the TT-01 is discontinued, is this true? So what I was thinking was this TT-01: http://images.google.com.au/imgres?i...%3Den%26sa%3DX Anyway I just want to make sure that this is a TT-01 If anyone could tell whether it is, that would be great . And is the TT-01 a kit I couldnt seem to find ant information on this aspect anywhere. If it is a kit are Tamiya kits hard to build?
Thanks for any information!

Nah, the TT01 isn't discontinued.

There are several versions with slightly different parts, but the overall design is the same, and most parts are interchangeable.

Nope, the tt-01 is not discontinued as far as i know, plus they are easy to build, i had the tt-01d Subaru wrx 2005 chassis and got it all done in about 2-2 1/2 hours.

Its a great car whether you get the tt-01 tt-01e or tt-01d Chassis and you can race it in heaps of classes.

Good Luck!

I just bought a tt01 .this is my first car in 15yrs.My sons race it too.It is very tough.We put ball baerings, alum shaft and oil shocks it it.we run a black 540 motor geared 22/58 and it is pretty fast.It has taken TONS of wall hits and we have not destroyed anything yet.Parts are cheap too.If you want a better RACE car, get a ta-o5r.The tto1 is fabulous as a starter car, it is an AWESOME drifter too. Very easy to build and service.Great also is the fact all the gears are enclosed so you can bash it about outside and not get rocks in the gears.

not sure if theres any rtr kits unless you bought second hand off ebay or a site like that.

I bought mine kit set and found it better because then you know how its built so if anything breaks (nothing yet - touch wood! :] ) you know how to fix it or put it back together. Plus its fun building it!

The site I gave have some RTR kits available, but yea.. it's always better if you build it yourself..

Ball bearings are a MUST, and you pretty much have to take the whole car apart to install ball bearings(well I assume the RTR kits come with plastic bushings.. eww), so why not build it right the first time instead of having them prebuilt and have to take it apart just to install ball bearings.

the base tt01 is full of plastic bushings and has sloppy steering.I would buy the e-type so you get the update d steerint kit,and a new upperdeck.Buy the ball bearings and alum drive shaft and install it when you build it.I added these parts after the fact but once you build the kit, it is easy to add stuff because you now know how it goes togeather!
