    tt-01 is actually good for drifting. you should make all your suspensions really stiff all around and get the hardest slick compound you can find and buy a pair of hard inserts for the rear and medium inserts in the front. you should also lubricate your front differentials more and you can use anti-wear grease for the rear differentials. (you should also thinking of buying the front one way differentials is they sell them for tt-01)

    Just the basics really they are easily upgradable but if you havnt bought one i would recomend the new TB-02 chassis kits you can make everything totally adjustable unlike the tt-01 as they are the new tt-01 and you can use parts from the evo chassis which is a top notch chassis its nearly as good as the tr-415

    hey man if i wereyou i would keep the sport tuned. they turn just as much if not more than 27T stockers and you dont ever have to service em since they are closed endbell motors!

    Ive been running the TB02 as my drifter. and all ive had so far is probelms The Diffs cant handel the stress. Im running a Team Orion CORE MOD 13 Single. and the ball diffs just blow out.

    Im not very happy with the car so far. But ive got a Front Oneway for the front. and a Bevel for the rear coming in the mail. So i hope that fixs it.

    Cheers :roll:

    Ive heard this about the tb02 before i think its a common problem. I would sugest to you though get a rs540 sport tuned they are hot for drift and should be kinder to your gears

    hi,

    I use a TT01, my setup is this:

    I use 61T/22T and Tamiya SS TYPE-s 23T, or HPI Challange 17T (but this is too more). I have standard diff., but more grease in rear. I have metal motor mount set, and aliminium motor heat sink, therefore it is cold. I use standard futaba s3003 servo, and LRP IPC esc.
    Now i waiting new one way, and ball diff for this car, and i will go the track.
    I use standard oil dumper, hard oil, and tamiya white spring. In my car is more tuning parts.

    I use Yokomo drift tires, or pvc. If more turn in track, and sort straight, i use PVC.
