How to improve Tamiya TT-01’s balance and speed -Yeah Racing Conversion Kit for Tamiya TT-01 / TT-01E’s Review
The Tamiya TT-01 is a great RC car for entry level hobbyists. Some believes the more expensive the RC car is, the better it drifts. Not true. The winner of the GroovyDrift at the D1 Grand Prix (D1GP) at Englishtown, New Jersey was using a TT-01.
Admittedly, Tamiya TT-01 is a great drifter out of the box, however there are not many hop ups for the TT-01 Drifters. Yeah racing Conversion Kit for Tamiya TT-01 / TT-01E is one of the few offering an upgrade to TT-01.
This upgrade kit will improve the balance and speed of the TT-01. It is accomplished by shifting the weight, minimizing the steering, balancing the throttle and brake in a corner…Try upgrading the following and you will find the difference:
Aluminum Center Drive Shaft
The original plastic driveshaft is VERY flexible and doesn’t do a good job putting power to the ground, upgrading to an aluminum piece provides you with more predictable acceleration, as well as allowing you to upgrade to lower Turn motors.
Aluminum Lower Arms
Many Tamiya TT-01 owners say these are purely for “bling”. However if you are very hard on your car, or you run into a lot of stuff while learning, you can break the stock arms, causing down time and headaches. Replace the cheap plastic parts with an aluminum parts can save a lot of troubles.
The aluminum steering is stronger and allows much less slop than the plastic stock pieces.
Adjustable Upper Arm Set
The adjustable upper arms are a must, for you to adjust the camber angle and take advantage of the tires.
Ball Bearing Set
Ball bearings replace the stock plastic bushings, that support your driveshafts and differentials, they allow your car to go accelerate faster as well as let you have a higher top speed.
It is quite a rewarding feeling about mastering the car, especially when it comes with a 4wd system. This Yeah Racing Aluminum Conversion Kit will certainly make your Tamiya TT-01 / TT-01E durable enough to last for hours upon hours of RC Drift fun.
