    RE: Official Tamiya TT-01 Thread

    I have had trouble with my steering setup slipping off the servo on my TT01.

    Originally I tried to use the stock servo mounting holes but found that they are too far forward in the chassis to use my servo. SO i drilled my own holes--on fortunatly whenever i bang into anything with the front of my car the steering 'column' slips off the servo (it slips of the piece directly mounted to the servo, not the servo itself.) and i have to take the body off and reset. Are there any better solutions? should i glue it on?

    Yea I know, it's not the best 20t motor out there, but I got a pretty good deal on it, $30 NZD. But the other day it was running really slow, and I noticed when looking through the venting holes, it looked real dirty. So I took the whole engine apart, cleaned it, applied some grease to the shafts and re-assembled it and it was much better.

    Bigmik, speed trap your car. An Easy and way to find the correct (and pretty accurate) speed of your car.

    Explain the "speed trap" to me.
    Well, you mark out a distance, drive your car (at full speed) over that distance timing from the start to finish of that marked distance.

    So for your car, you would probaly want to mark out 10-30m. And you will drive your car over that distance at full speed, so you need to have along enough run up so your can reach its top speed before the marked distance.

    When your car first crosses the start of the of section you marked out, you begin the timing, and when it crosses the end of the marked section, you stop the timing. You should do this atleast 3-5 times and take an average to have more accurate results.

    Then you can use the very simple formula of distance/time=speed

    For e.g: If you had a distance of 15m, and it took your car 1.5 secs; 15/1.5=10m/s

    Now you have your speed, but it isnt in an everyday unit. So if you want to change it to kph, just mutiply it by 3.6. 10*3.6=36kph.

    There you go. Pretty simple, and aslong as you marked out the distance correctly, and your timing isnt too off you should know the exact speed of your car.

    RE: Official Tamiya TT-01 Thread

    hey all,

    I've got a TT-01 and have performed a few hop ups already... (all genuine tamiya parts):
    - Full bearing kit
    - Aluminium Tail Shaft
    - Adjustable upper arms
    - RS-540 Sports Tuned 23 turn motor
    - Carbon Upper Frame
    - Metal Engine Mount

    I've got some yokomo drift tyres on it as well.
    Running a 3000mAh 7.2v 6 cell

    Now it runs pretty well.. drifts pretty nicely, as thats what i want it to do!
    I'm running the standard Expec TTU-01 Controller and CPR-01 ESC/Receiver all in one unit.

    I'm going to get the oil filled shocks as well.

    I would more power though... What would be a good upgrade for this setup? What motors would i be able to run with the current ESC i have? I've heard they can handle only down to a 23Turn.

    As mine is the standard setup of the XB series it is an all in one design with the receiver and ESC as a single unit.

    has anyone else had any experience with these? I was hoping to be able to upgrade the motor without having to replace the ESC and receiver... Also any other mods that i could perform to get this drifting even better would be appreciated

    Let me know!! thanks guys!

    Cheers,

    Brad.
