  1. Could also upgrade the diffs and shafts which will make it smoother and potentially a bit quicker
  2. Still a complete novice on forums and not sure how to reply directly to your posts haha the hobbywing esc was £15
  3. If you are using the ESC that came with it; it will be the TBLE02 which can handle a 23T motor. The torque tuned is a 25T motor that is only faster than the 540 silver can. So you you can keep that esc and get the tamiya sport tuned that would be faster or get a cheap esc that can handle a faster motor. I got a hobbywing 1060 esc that I am going to run the 23t super stock RZ but you can go down to a 19t motor on that esc all of these motor options will be much faster than the torque tuned
  4. Yep I got a mechanical servo and I have the TT01E chassis with an alu steering kit as I say so hopefully no steering issues! Well you are running a torque tuned motor so have a lot more options for more speed before going to lipo? Or is brushless/lipo setup the end game? Trying to keep mine fairly old school. Going to save brushless/lipo until I get me a trf chassis.....but I’m getting ahead of myself haha

  6. Don’t be scared of the shell, just take your time and have fun with it....I think that’s all one colour right (silver)? You will be fine. That said That’s the part I least enjoy. With regards to the steering I’m very inexperienced compared to the wealth on here so sure someone will have some advice! I assume nothing is bent/snapped? I have got an aluminium steering set not sure if this will help or if there are known issues with steering on the TT01...
  7. The kit comes with the Mercedes 190E Debis body. I will make sure I record the build with pictures etc as I go if people are interested to see. Annoyingly I have EVERYTHING ready to go except the chassis kit itself as it seems there is an issue at present with the supply chain due to the current lockdown situation. Stock is expected 19th Jan so fingers crossed. This is a pic of all the bits and the awesome double tray carry bag I got for mine and boys cars...actually just got in from wizzing the hornet around the local car park
  8. So like a lot of people starting out I have got myself a TT01E kit. I had a frog back when I was a kid but that was built and maintained largely by my Dad! I tried to get my son into the hobby a a few years back but was lazy and got a re re rtr hornet....he wasn’t overly bothered and it went back in the cupboard after a few months. Now he is really into it and we have tinkered and upgraded the hornet. So I finally decided to actually buy a kit and build it so we can go out together. Enter the TT01. I know threads like this go back as far as time itself it seems and I have read most of them and fallen into the trap of most and spent a LOT on hop ups! I know it’s a waste and I could of spent the money on a better chassis etc etc but I figure a lot of the money expensive parts I can relocate to my next build. But I wanted my TT01 to be the best it could be! Also want to stick with brushed for this one. So the parts I have got are: Bearings, Tamiya TRF shocks, Tamiya universal shaft (front only), Tamiya shaft/diff cups, Alu prop shaft, alu steering set, hobbywing 1060 esc, savox hv digital servo, tamiya super stock rz, alu motor mount, alu bumper stopper, alu wheel adaptor, noble nb4 transmitter, lots of tyres and various other odds and sods, you know just to spend money in lockdown! I think that’s about it! Other than spending far to much, I just wanted people’s opinion on if there is anything else I should consider? Also should I change the pinion from stock? I got a set with a 17 & 18t but not sure if it’s needed for better performance? sorry that was a long post and I know the subject is well trodden but happy to be part of the community! 😊
