  1. If you want second hand I'd recommend getting a Wild Dagger or alternative WR-01 chassis. Long discontinued but plenty still knocking around. Their a blast to run, double motors and OK to keep repaired/mod'd. Off the shelf - I'd go for a Konghead chassis (Noticed a tread?). As I tend to drive on rough ground (dirt tracks and playing fields) rather than car parks etc. If you have a local track or level ground then the TT-02 has plenty of upgrades and cheaper than the XV-01 chassis. I personally have a TT-01 with rally style mods to improve it's ground clearance etc.
  2. What did you hit to bend the rod? My daughters Lunchbox is like new - she refuses to drive it anywhere but the playing field near us so at the very most it comes back full of grass! I might get a basher shell show she can run it in our smallish garden. I've given her full metal racers, oil damper set off eBay and not much else. It sits nicely along side my own wild dagger

    Really interested in this type of kits. Looking forward to seeing the rest of this build
  4. If your trying to break speed records etc then probably. :-)
  5. I already have a TB01 and enjoy the chassis. Main reason for asking about the tt range was their chassis are easy to come by on eBay or sale posts. A xv01 chassis might be a good idea if I don't need to mod them. Tt units tend to add up once you get oil shocks, improved steering etc etc.
  6. My wife has a mad bull and I did the steering mod, added aftermarket oil shocks and had to trim the chassis slightly as I noticed the new servo setup was rubbing. The bodies are like egg shells but their cheap enough of Ebay. One thing I noticed was the silver can getting really warm so added a heat sink with a few fins trimmed off so the gearbox didn't foul it.
  7. So you think I should get another tt01. Interesting. I did enjoy doing the rally mod on it but that was because I felt it was breathing life into an old chassis.
  8. I know the feeling. Last year I got another rally car (prototype impreza) and I started on a killer/novafox project. After a few months we'd had our second daughter and all interest in the hobby dropped off a cliff. Recently I was bored on eBay and ended up finding a shell for the novafox setup. I also came back here and within days I've bought a lunchbox lol I convinced the wife it's for my eldest daughter but we all know who's it really for. I think I'm pretty happy with what I have until I see another car/truck I want lol
  9. After running on a beach is it a complete strip down to make sure you get no saltwater in the electronics or sand in the gears?
  10. Congrats - better get saving for the incusrance! lol
  11. I'm trying to decide if I should get another TT01 chassis or go for the TT02. I already have a TT01 with the DIY rally mod to give it greater ground clearance. I intend on using the new chassis in the same way - general bashing around. This chassis isn't a replacement for my current tt01 - just another car for the collection. So question time - whats the highest ground clearance for TT02 chassis? Thanks
  12. As mentioned, I've used both the true tamiya rally blocks and the cheap china knock off and the cheap ones do wear quicker - however it also depends what your running it on. if it's trimmed grass then the cheap ones will be fine. If it;s true rally - IE gravel then I'd suggest (as others have before me ) the true rally blocks, with foam inserts and glued.
  13. Really depends what you want it for - as a basher a 4WD system is pretty fun and can almost go any where - just keep in mind that one motor is technically in reverse so if you get better motors than the silver cans make sure they are balanced.
