Brushed RTR HSP Xeme


(Bubble available in 8 different designs and colors)



Technical data:
Length: 360 mm (36 cm)
Height: 112 mm (11.20 cm)
Width: 200 mm (20 cm)
Ratio: 6.52: 1
Wheel Diameter: 65 mm (6.5 in.)
Wheel width: 26 mm (2.6 in.)
Wheelbase: 260 mm (26 cm)
Weight: 1900kg

Brushed mounted automodel Xeme
2.4 Ghz 2 Channel Radio (Same as GT2)
Battery 1800mAh NiMH 7.2Volts
NiMH battery charger (220V)

540 Brushed Motor
Brushed ESC with reverse HSP
7.2V 1800mAh NiMH Battery

In this model will not be pointing the features like the Brushless Xeme, since it is virtually the same model, only with this combo Brushed, which greatly decreases the speed in relation to Brushless.

Definately the TT-01 out of all those three is the best choice.

The biggest questions to answer or ask.

1. What do you plan to do with it? (Racing/Bashing)

2. If racing what class? (GT1, GT2, GT3, VTA)

3. Are you planning on progressing through the ranks if racing? Chassis versatility is the name of the game if so.

I am not being a kill joy as these questions will determine what you will need or want as far as chassis and equipment based on the goals.


P.S. Check my Blog for pics of my cars.

I would go the the Tamiya as well. They make great cars. I would add a bearing kit to it. It will really help that car out.

I have a couple of TT01E's and for the money they are one of the best cars out there. I run a couple of 19 doubles in the racing class that these run in. no need for brushless as there are better cars out there for that class.. if bashing is your thing and you want to go fast as well, i would recommend the HPI sprint 2 flux.. very fast with the castle combo and parts are very easy to get.. As for the HSP... never heard of them and I doubt parts are easy to come by.. contrary to what their webpage says..

Considering getting into the RC Car world, and would like to try drifting. Is the Tamiya TT01E the one for the biggest bang for the least (overall) buck?

The TT01 is a good value if you have electronics already, or are willing to buy them from discount vendors (hobbypartz.com, hobbyking.com, etc). Their RTR packages aren't priced very attractively compared to other similar cars.

This shows you all of the upgrades avialable for the tto1
However, I have yet to break anything on my bone stock tto1 with a hobbywing brushless system. Definitly get a bearing kit and lipos for it. The tt01 is DEFINITLY your best option for bashing or racing.
