yes. you will need them in the long run and it help reduce slop and friction in the drivetrain so its good to get them early and put them in while your building the kit. also the plastic shaft vibrates at high speed and that not good.

drifting on abs or pvc piping will work on any motor and esc combo. theres so little traction and even the stock stuff will do it just fine since your on a budget.

same recommendation i gave to paulyd. get bearings and the alu prop shaft. IF you want to drift, keep it 4wd, definitely not fwd. Don't know why you would want to do that... If you have pvc/abs piping tires, the stock stuff will just fine until you want to upgrade the motor/esc. I've never heard of an asmann motor...

also proof read your post. It was difficult to read...

They should fit. The tamiya bodies say they fit both of the cars, so i expect that they would. The tt-01 has 2 different body post options. 1 of them should work

the old ford RS200 rally car? Kyosho used to make a kit, find one of those will be tough and i don't even know if they will fit.

yokomo will fit, but holes may be different

would that be something good for a TT-01 kit? please dont recommend something over like $200, cuz i have a low budget.
I have the 27mhz am version of this radio. Nice radio for the money. My son now uses it on his Virtual RC game on the computer with the VRC USB adaptor. He also likes it.

I think the plastic parts are just fine.
1-cheaper
2-lighter
3-tamiya plastic is pretty strong stuff
4-most of them aren't made by tamiya so i can't use them in the races, if you just bash then this isn't important...
I agree - Only replace stuff when it breaks. I would definately upgrade from bushings to bearings. From there only upgrade if you feel the need. Save your money for anything else you need.
