TT Nitro with Pats brakes.

Hi Guys.

A couple of posts ago I promised that I would post some pics of the brake conversion on my TT Nitro. Well here they are.

Mods so far:

1 - Pat's twin front cable disc conversion.
2 - CNR polished front rims.
3 - GRP 45's
4 - Duratrax failsafe
5 - Hitec 40FM DCX receiver.
6 - Dubro fuel filter
7 - Re-routed fuel line, pressure pipe and fill pipe.
8 - NF body mounts.
9 - New 'home made' remote glow plug cable to fit OS A3 plugs.

I am awaiting my one piece polished sprocket/hub from Gregor.

Its good to see lots of people buying the TT Nitro. Hopefully creating a bonanza of after market parts specifically for it.

Cheers.

Hi. See the attached pic. The wire is about 2mm diameter (supplied with a Tamiya electric car kit) crimped at both ends. I rolled the end into a circular tube just small enough to latch onto the OS plug without coming loose.

I only made this as a temporary solution until I come up with something better (been thinking of using a mini croc clip?), but you know how these things are, it may last a long time!

it is good to see the tt nitros took off, it should do aswell! the build qualitys brilliant compared to the nuova faors and the previous fm-1e (which wasnt bad either!) and the price is quite low aswell which helps
you've done a real good job with ur tt it looks gorgeous, especially with the pats brakes and new wheels
have you considered replacing your rear shock for a lauterbacher one? they make a huge difference compared to stock and look the dogs aswell?

Front axles are 6mm, so you would need some alum tubing with a slightly larger I.D. if you just wanted to make your own.

Or you could get an FM-1e front axle kit. They are $4-$5 from e-hobbies. Comes with the axle, spacers, washers and axle bolts, everything to put on a naked front wheel. That way you'd have a spare axle too.

Or you could cut off the disks and just leave the stock plastic spacers if you wanted.

Hi Gaz,

The bike looks great, I love the look and style of the new TT frame! I can see from your pic that an opposite handed bracket would have been perfect for mounting the cables, so you could use the existing servo mounting bolts.

Glad it's all gone together nicely for you. I'm still waiting to try out the new rotors I made up that should fit the TT nitro directly; no need for the wheel swap. (A friend in spain has sent one off, it should be here soon)

Hi Bjm,

The stock bushes for the TT electric and NF's atleast, are 8mm OD x 6mm ID x 10mm long, It doesn't look like they've changed it. (My calipers have the spacer integrating as part of them)

Sure, just give me a bit to get some work done here at the office. But you can also go to the link that someone posted just recently with the parts and owner's manuals listed. The FM-1e and both Duc front axles are all the same as far as I know.

Both Ducatis share the same front axle part number. The FM-1e is different, due to the spacers. The FM-1e part number is PD6051, which the Ducati part number is PD6284.
