My trusty old TT-01 based Nissan 350Z (see elsewhere) was literally worn out. After winning the Stock class at a round of the Swiss Touring Car Championship with it earlier this year (and royally upsetting drivers of all-carbon specials), I decided the old girl needed a refurb. On her last run out I smashed into another car and tore the whole back end off. Rebuild definitely on the cards. I bought this TT-01E based Golf and have transferred all the hop-up goodies off my old car onto this.
Car spec in photo below is as follows: TT-01E chassis, Full ball bearings, racing steering set, alloy propshaft, alloy motor mount, Tamiya TRF fluorine coated shocks, 25/58 Gearing, Carbon fibre chassis brace, locked front diff, LRP brushless controller and LRP 10.5 brushless motor, Futaba S9452 digital servo. Wheels are alloy with Takeoff CS27's mounted with Tamiya TRF alloy hexes.
Race spec will run Ripmax no-limit ESC with Team Orion Katana 23x1, JB wheels with Hot Bodies 35 compound tyres and a generic touring car shell of some description (prolly a Mazdaspeed).




TT-01. Faster than you think...

I find the TT01E chassis allot better than the TT01 thanks to the shock towers and the chassis brace. I see you have the carbon brace, which just makes it even better. I've used the same gearing as you do, but never tried a brushless in this chassis. I've heard that the gearing won't hold...is that true?

Untrue. I've seen 9t brushless and 3S lipos running in TT-01's before. They are tough as hell (or I have been very lucky).

Hmm, I might try that then, have enough spares for this chassis if somethink should break. Thanks for your answer!

Shock towers,brace, some plastics are stronger. That's about all I noticed...
