  1. Do I need this? No. Do I really want this now that I know it exists? YES. The anodized Tamiya blue still looks beautiful 🀌
  2. Ok, I thought it was just me...thanks so much!
  3. Ok, so Im not sure if I did something wrong or not, but I just got the TT01 turnbuckle set for my TT02. I just took it out for its first run since installing it, and it doesnt quite handle like I want it to. So Im trying to adjust them and either the wrench it comes with is messed up somehow, or my turnbuckles are stripped at the nut. Its a brand new set and I dont know why the wrench wont hold onto the turnbuckle nuts. Any thoughts?
  4. Does that mean if you do it right, you can get it to be done and complete (body, paint, motor, esc, etc) and itd be cheaper than a complete TT02? Im seeing Sakura d5's for about 100 bucks for a chassis.
  5. Yeah Ive seen em. They look pretty awesome. Im just not quite ready to dish out the money for something like that yet πŸ˜…
  6. Oh man, ok...thats a bummer. I feel a little late to the party with rc stuff lol I was just asking about the TT02D Type-S out of curiosity. I enjoy my TT02 and I really enjoy some occasional, basic drifting every now and then. But I also enjoy postal racing and wanted a decent touring car that could also drift some. I just know the TT02D Type-S had a lot of adjustablility compared to the stock TT02. So just wondering πŸ˜… Thanks again!
  7. Will do, Ill see what I can make of the torque tuned motor and go from there. Does anyone else know whether or not you need an esc upgrade for the sport tuned motor?
  8. Has anyone heard of the TT02D Type-S??? I just saw Thercracer do a review of it. Does anyone own one? If so, what do you think of it? From a beginner drifting standpoint? Is it THAT much better than a (mostly) stock tt02 with drift tires? Also, where to find it for sale, in the US?
  9. This makes a lot of sense. I guess I did leave some things out of my original post. So Ive got the Torque tuned motor and Im running 2s lipos. So I might go that route. Side question: Is the sport tuned motor worth it? Is it THAT much better than the torque tuned? Thanks!
  10. Man, thats great to hear that youve done that! This is exactly the answer I was looking for. Thanks so much!
  11. One more question...would something like the TB-05 63t 0.6mod spur gear be better to lower the overall gear ratio? Or would it be better to get a bigger pinion gear, like a 25t or a 26t?
  12. Thanks @alvinlwh! I do still have that TT02 chart, but I just didnt know whether or not it still applied I guess πŸ˜…
  13. Yes it does pass the 3 sec rule. Ive never heard that term before. But I assume it means how long you can put your finger on the motor for? And yeah, sorry, I forgot to put down that I just have the torque tuned motor. For the most part I do run on smooth asphalt, though the occasional rough patch comes up every now and then. But makes sense, thanks!
  14. Hello, just wondering...I sort of want to upgrade to a brushless system in my TT02, but its gonna be quite the wad of cash to do so. So instead of doing that, i was wondering what the easiest way to get the lowest FDR possible while being safe for the motor. I currently have a 22t 0.6mod pinion and the high speed gear set. Thanks in advance!
  15. Yeah, Ive done that πŸ˜… Its still was a little tough to turn, especially with any throttle. But thanks!
  16. Awesome job you guys, it was fun! For doing it for the first time, Im pretty happy with getting 9th place. I did notice the TT02 steering angle doesnt quite make the hairpin areas easy with any sort of throttle. Did anyone have any tips on either improving steering angle on the TT02? Or just any driving tips?
  17. With the high speed gear set, whats the biggest pinion youd be able to use without frying everything?
  18. One other random question, for anyone who can answer. Is it worth converting a TT02 to brushless? And which motors would work with the stock esc? I just feel like a little more top end speed might be nice. And also probably wouldnt spend too much on that either πŸ˜…
  19. That is a pretty sweet collection of TT02s there! I almost didnt recognize the first one as a TT02. Theyve all got quite the upgrades! Two questions.... How did you get the adjustable tie rod things to fit as an upper arm? I like the idea of being able to get some camber/toe-in/out dialed in but dont quite know where to start other than the turnbuckle tie rod set. And also, what sort of runtimes do you have on your TT02s? I have a really small 1600mah 2s lipo I use with mine which gives me about 15 mins of runtime. But I have 6 of them so Im personally not too concerned with thatπŸ˜… I cant read what the mah rating is on your batteries (and probably what most other people run too.)
  20. I like that a lot 🀣 "Plastic fantastic dogbones/steering" I also notice that basically all drift wheels/tires are a lot smaller in diameter compared to touring wheels. Are TT02D drift wheels about the same size as most other drift wheels? And does the way the wheel wells are cut out on the body match those wheels? I have a set of Amazon drift tires and have fun ripping it around, but I cant get over how tiny they look compared to the body.
  21. Just thought I'd share how I've upgraded my TT02 after saying I want to keep it as close to stock as possible πŸ˜… Ok, so in order, this is what ive put on it... 1. Bearings 2. Hobbypark Aluminum heatsink 3. YR Aluminum shocks - Awesome set of shocks, so many ways to customize how you want them to run - 4. Robinson racing 22t steel pinion gear 5. Tamiya high speed gear set 6. Kimbrough medium servo saver So in the end, did I spend more money than I had initially wanted? Yes. Was it fun putting all the new parts on and seeing how the car improved? Yes. Overall, was it worth buying upgrades? Yes. Does that mean I am not going to buy any more upgrades as long as nothing breaks? Well...maybe, maybe not. Is my wallet happy? No, but I am πŸ˜‚ Im surprised how much all the upgrades Ive made improve every aspect of the car, the way it handles, steers, and frankly, the way it looks too. Ive spent a little over $300 (US) on this and I love the car. Sort of wanting to look into a steering bridge too lol What have you spent on your TT02? Are you happy with the upgrades? And what do you think are really great upgrades that probably arent necessary (maybe what you might consider a stage 2 car instead of a stage 1 TT02 with just bearings.) Note: I just ran this on some dusty street, so its not as clean as it was yesterday.
  22. Oops, I found it. June 25th. Maybe ill look harder before asking a question next time πŸ˜…
  23. Awesome! Thanks! Even though its my first time racing, I think im doing pretty well so far. Got to run for about half an hour. Forgot to take pics though. Started drizzling so I had to stop a little sooner than I wanted. Look forward to the end of this round! Maybe I missed it, but when does this round end again?
  24. Edit: I found it, but it says this round is finished, the next will start soon?
  25. Hey would someone be able to quote the questionnaire thing to put down how many laps you did? Please and thanks!
