Default "Tamiya TT01-E" rolling chassis?

Hi,

I'm really interested in buying my first 1/10 on road car, and the TT01-E is one of my options

But I'd like to put a brushless combo inside the RC but can't find a rolling chassis version of the TT01-E.

Is this available somewhere?



My other options are:
- Ofna JL10-E
- HPI E10

Is the TT01-E the best choice for an On-Road first timer?

Will be riding it in the street, not planning to race it.

Does it matter if it's prebuilt?

I don't know much about the ofna, but you'd be much better off with a tt01 than an e-10. The tt01 doesn't handle well enough to do well at racing, but it's a good solid chassis. The e10 on the other hand has weak drivetrain.

What are the differences betweenTT-01E and TT-01ES?

I may end up buying this one:

Someone said the ES wasn't as good as the TT01e when I asked about it

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXAUND&P=ML could get that(what I got when I wanted one) I've heard of people selling the ESC, and motor out of it as a set for $45 on ebay
the use the money made off the motor, and ESC to buy the CVD's, steel outdrives, and could get 2 DF-02 steel crown gear sets for $7 each(note the DF-02 steel gear needs to be filed a teeny bit to work).

I flung a HW 9t 35A combo in mine, and sent it flying

The only thing Tamiya says about it is that the "S" in "ES" stands for streamlined. From pictures I can't tell the difference between them and the cheaper price tag is telling me that something is stripped down on the ES.

Yeah but doing this, I'd have to bu a 35$ clear body

I think I'll stick with the Mercedes, sell the ESC/Motor and put some brushless in it.

ahh didn't know you liked the mercedes body
I personally didn't like any of tamiyas bodies on the sub $200 ones, and like a few HPI bodies why I went with the cheapest one
