  1. This thread is going to be a brief summary for the build of a TT02-SR chassis as a speed run car followed by the trials and tribulations of running the car. I’ve been inspired by the multiyear, multipart “Tamiyaclub Official Top 10 Fastest RC'ers” thread. I’ve even got an entry for a completely stock TL-01 near the bottom of one of the tables with an eye watering 16 MPH. This all started with wanting a “different” on road car to run. I already had a Porsche RSR and loving all things VW and Porsche the Porsche 911 GT1 Street TA03R-S seemed to fit the bill as I’ve never had a belt drive car. But as a chassis, the battery compartment seemed a bit limiting. I wasn’t sure it could fit lipos, it definitely wouldn’t fit a tall 3S lipo and I didn’t like how exposed the battery would be. For me, another negative was being short wheelbase other standard wheelbase bodies wouldn’t fit nicely. As the eventual aim was always to get a speed run focused body I decided to explore the different chassis kits available. Although I could probably stretch to one of the higher priced chassis, for that sort of outlay I know I’d be ****htened to crash it. I wasn’t previously aware of all the different TT-02 chassis kits and after a bit of deliberation ended up with the TT-02 SR. This seemed to offer a good balance of essential hops (bearings & CVAs), adjustability and other hops ups right off the bat. There’s a load of good TT-02 stuff at the rcracer.com https://www.thercracer.com/2014/08/tamiya-tt02-guide-mods-tuning-and-tips.html and this was excellent to get an idea of the different TT-02 chassis kits and hop ups. Link to the Tamiya product description https://www.tamiya.com/english/products/47439/index.htm I got the kit from Tamico https://tamico.de/Tamiya-47439-TT-02-Type-SR-Chassis-Bausatz KP
  2. Evening, Over the last few months I've been buying all the rolling chassis' of the cars I wanted when I was a kid but couldn't afford. These included a TA01, TA02, TA03, M01 and an FF01. The TA's and M01 I have eventual plans for, but the FF01 I bought to turn into a speed run car. I already own another FF01 Ford Mondeo but it's a shelf queen and I don't want to run it. So for the last few months I've been desperately keeping an eye out for another FF01 that wasn't extortionately expensive or completely knackered. I eventually got bored of waiting and paid over the odds for one from Italy It arrived last week and looked like this.
