I think just the bevel gears are stock as well. other than that, nope. I was even able to re-build the stock car.

I hear the Tamiya oil-filled shocks are quite good, and I think you can fit just about any 60mm adjustable shocks too.

i would agree with the above, but on the TT i wouldn't bother, generic oil filled shocks will give you the same result, the TT suffers from entry level suspension and steering.

me, what brand spurs are you using, 3 racing always have problems with melted pin housings and premature gear wear. Always use Tamiya spurs for your tamiya tt01.

No, I mean that little white ring. Not the spur gear itself.

replace it with one of the brass bushings you replaced with a bearing (if you got the bearing kit for it, which is a must!) that hold the diffs in place. SEE TOP LEFT IMAGE, BRASS LOOKING BEARING. it is tough to force on, but it will not melt and will hold that pin in there.

Thanks for that, it works perfectly. Shame I went and bought the G Parts to get the spur gear stopper already. Hopefully i'll bust a diff housing so that purchase doesn't go to waste.
Having the worn down spur gear stopper worked fine until I started using 12cell NiMh on a 5700kV Mamba Max with 25/55 gearing........
It gets VERY hot by the way, so watch those motor temps.

yes, the faster you go, the more friction=heat, and tons of it! the TT-01 has a lot of friction, trust me! the g bag will come in handy, atleast for the spur gear

what gearing do you use on your mamba 12 cell? And just to let you know there is only one side which you can put the spur gear stopper on, if you put it on the wrong side it can come off and hit the housings around the spur gear causing lots of wear.

You guys, I'm getting back to using my RC ..just need to know a few things

i'm considering upgrading the motor

what i have: Tamiya TT-01 XB (expert built)

then i've upgraded it with the Yeah Racing conversion kit

what should i do next? I was thinking of a brushless motor.

is that the right thing to do? i'm mostly into speed, but also into drifting, would a brushless motor be a good decision?
if yes, then what should i get? something moderate that would boost up my speed?

Also what does the aluminum solid axle do?? how would it effect my car?

thanks alot

@Razorback For drift you don't need a mega fast motor, I'm pretty sure people stick with lower turn motors for drifting for control.

The aluminium solid axle for the front? Or the locked diff? The locked diff should help a lot with your drifting, from what I've read some people prefer to have the front axle locked when they drift, but it's like suspension setups for full size drift, it's personal preference.

Nice looking car Billdozer, I've just finished building my TT01E, all stock except the bearings from my old TGS XBG. No motor in it yet my dad's sending me an EzRun 60A esc and I'm going to buy the 13T EzRun motor unless anyone suggests otherwise

I am v.excited to get it running Got the Tamiya Radio gear and servo from my old TGS too.

I'll have to wait until my EZRun motor comes through from Honk Kong and see if it's any good before I could recommend it, there are plenty of guys on here with brushless TT01s, hopefully one of them will stop by and drop some recommendations
Reference the locked rear axle, it's pretty much a must have for drift, if your diff is operating correctly then when you go to drift, keeping both rear wheels spinning the diff will try and counteract it, thus giving you less control over the slide.
I'm not sure how much control you have over the speed when programming the ESC I don't really know what the settings do yet lol. *Edit* I just read up some and it seems setting the timing can increase/decrease power

timing has no affect on the performance as far as i have tested. if you're gonna buy a ezrun motor, get the 5.5. you'll want more power eventually.
please read the last25 pages of this forum and you'll get ALL the info you need.
