Candy's CSed TT-01
Hello everyone

Im from Greece and i own a TT01 since October.

my friend and best man got me into drifting and we now play together as he was out of it for some time a there was noone to drift with.

So as a noob i thought the tt01 would be the best option but that was before i knew stuff like the ms01d RTR existed.

Anyways i went for the type e which wasnt the full drift thing but i badly wanted the gt86 shell.

So i put it together and painted the shell with dark gunmetal grey which came out pretty black but thats fine.

I used the Hitec controller, receiver and servo from my old nitro car, so that saved me some cash.
After reading all about lipos and chargers i went to HK and got myself 2 5amp 2C zippys and a turnigy charger for dirt cheap to be honest.

And onto making this a drift car
First thing i did was to buy some t-drifts and stealth body mounts with magnets.

Countless hours of internet searching led me to buying 3racing front and rear arms that would allow me to adjust camber, 3racing aluminum shaft, some turnbuckles, eagle front cvds for 60 degrees of maximum angle and yeah racing rear universals.
I did break the rear axle on a crash and cracked one of my new at the time mst wheels. Nothing major i just put the dogbones back in.

I also bought the active hobby carbon steering plates some time back as i wanted more lock.It did help.
I locked up the rear diff with hot-melt glue and also ordered an eagle FOW. my god what a difference it made.

In the meantime i ve got myself several wheel and tyres but nothing like most of the people have here. lol One of the best thing i did was the mst calipers which i custom installed n my stock knuckles.

So i got to a point i felt 50-50 wasnt fun anymore and wanted to step it up a bit, so countersteer time...
Active hobby makes cs gears so i got the 1.76 ratio and wow how harder could it get. Experimenting with weights and a hell of a lot of practice started paying off.

Had about 3-4 sessions after the stock tt01 motor gave in a couple of weeks back so i m waiting for a gt tuned tamiya motor which is revier and torquier :P

Latest addition to he chassis and probably last is the active hobby wipers which gave me the ultimate steering angle i could get out of my eagle shafts.

havent raced yet with those on coz my motor thinks its funny to delay probably but its should be way better and easier.

Anyways here are some pics from the starting stages up to now.
Excuse my long post :D

Nice car. Yeah sure it isn't a MS-01 RTR but you could have easily done worse and at least the TT chassis is very well supported. Great choice of body!
Don't be a douche and help the next guy.

Here For the love of RC Drifting
very cool! I scored a TT01 cheap and plan to go this route with it
My words dont mean a thing.I got no honour :P lol

I just bought a 3 racing graphite conversion kit i found in good price.

Cant wait!!!

Nice score! It makes such a huge difference with that conversion. I loved my 3racing when I had it. Keep it up, loving your build.

My 3racing graphite kit came in yesterday

Took me a good 4 hours to fully convert it to the new chassis but figuring out where to put the wires took a lot of time.

What i realised is that if you have the esc close to the receiver, i dont know they somehow interact with each other and the car was going out of control every now and then. Is that tue? Anyone else notice that?
So after i was all done i had to take apart what i so neatly put together and placed the esc a bit further just to see how the car performed.

Only managed to go about 15 mins coz i was running without the body on and hit something while on lock so there goes the servo. Thankfully i got a couple more.
So tomorow i ll replace that and try to figure out how to put together the electronics and tuck the wires again.

I also needed to shim my cs gears on the rear after converting it while on the stock tamiya gearbox it didnt need any. Positioning the motor so the pinion and spur are rotating ok was a bit of time consuming trial and error too.

I did notice the car is more stable and does react better to my controls but i really need more time than today to fully evaluate how more effective the conversion is.
I really need to get some proper dampers. Cant tell how longer i can go with the stock friction ones. lol Maybe next month as i ve spent too much for both this and my 1:1.

Nice! makes me miss my 3racing chassis. Get some yeah racing 55mm dampers later on when you upgrade. They are great and so much better then friction dampers. Actually pretty much anything is better then the friction dampers lol.

Yeah racing dampers are what i was thinking.

I would buy them along with the kit but blue 55mm were out of stock last week.Just checked and they are available again. Maybe i ll save up more to get the graphite towers too. lol this spending is endless....

lol yup, check out ebay they have some aluminum shock towers also

tamiya carbon options are nice since the front is different from the rears. cheapest carbon tower options would be from broadtech which is like 6-7 bucks each. Your build makes me miss when I was starting out and building my tt01 from scratch. Keep it up man.
