    TT-02 High Speed Gear Set

    Hi I'm using a Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 esc in conjunction with 2S lipos.

    TT-02 High Speed Gear Set

    Hi the TT-02D has a 22 tooth pinion and I just had a look at the TT-02R manual and it shows a 27 tooth pinion as standard. I know this may seem a stupid question but apart from fitting the high speed gear set and changing the pinion gear is there anything else that needs to be changed. Steve.
  3. Hi all I'm converting my TT-02D into a type R, I have the high speed gear set ray to install and was wondering what would be the ideal tooth pinion to use with it. I'm planning on using a HPI Firebolt 15 turn brushed motor. Also besides the high speed gear set is there anything else I should consider when it comes to the gearing? Cheers Steve.

    ESC Recommendation 15 turn brushed motor

    Hi I've bought the quicrun 1060's from HK (£12-£15 deliverd) and from Modelsport (around £23.50 delivrred). They are freaking awesome for their money and I've run HPI Firebolt 15 turn brushed motors on both NiMH and 2S lipos with no issues. Steve.

    Hi my friend. It sounds promising. Steve.
  10. Hi all I'm looking for a FAV project. Just wondering if anyone here would have something suitable that they are looking or would be willing to part with. Thanks Steve (UK).

    Ballraces...

    Very well put. The only time I've purchased Tamiya branded bearings is from Banzai for a TT-01e restoration as they were stupidly cheap compared to UK prices. All my bearings tend to be bought from HK. It would be interesting to evaluate the quality difference between the two as I presume there are industry standards.

    DB01 heat sink fitting

    Check with others first before cutting it out. It might reduce the chassis strength compared to the DB01RR chassis that is moulded to take the heating.

    What could also be said is that Tamiya could bulk buy bearings that would cost condiderably less than £10 per kit with their buying power and leverage over suppliers. I have also pondered the same question regarding the inclusion of bearings. But I must admit the DT-03 was and still is very good value for money. Steve.
  14. Hi all can anyone tell me the Futaba servo equivalent of an Acoms AS-17 please. Cheers Steve.

    DB01 heat sink fitting

    Hi my friend the motor heat sink in question fits the DB01RR chassis not the standard DB01 chassis. I had the same issue last year. Steve.
