If you want to race like the pros, be sure to make this product your first upgrade. My first run after change the old plastic prop with this alum prop was incredible the gain. You got more power in your sport tuned motor, and if you want to change for a more powerful motor do not forget to buy this prop, it is higly reccomend, This is Tamiya quality with a bargain price.
A must-have upgrade. The stock drive shaft on my TT-01E made a lot of noise, and is prone to flexing under acceleration. This shaft and cup combo is super light weight, stronger, and thinner than the stock plastic piece. Plus, with the joints included, not only are the weak plastic pieces replaced with stronger ones, but the steel shaft into the gearbox is also replaced with lighter aluminum. Tamiya parts are always high-quality, and fit perfectly. This and a set of ball bearings are the #1 upgrade to any TT-01!
It is absolutely must have for those who bought TT-01 !! Don't think about alu suspensions. Firstly you need to remove this plastic shaft which can't forward the force to your differs and then to wheels. After tune up by this parts car is more sensitive for acceleration and whole behavior is much better than on the begining. Moreover standard shaft has a little disadvantage, it was loose and in high motor speeds vibrate a lot. After installing this problem disapeared. I am very proud that original part cost is so atractive concerning other manufectarurs. Summarize if you want to tune TT-01 you MUST buy alu shaft!!
This is the newer version of TAMIYA (#53620) aluminum propeller shaft for TT01. The new shaft is slimmer than the (#53620) and comes with front and rear aluminum propeller joint cups. This is my very first upgrade for my TT-01D. I need to disassemble down to the chassis tub to upgrade it but it is very well worth. My TT-01D has improved in acceleration and deceleration response after this upgrade. I recommend you buy this upgrade along with your new TT-01/D/type E so that you can build the chassis right away with the new upgrade Tamiya (#54026) TT-01 Alu.Prop.Joint Shaft. Furthermore, this is the best selling TT-01 hop-up option parts and it always run out of stock very fast even at any hobby RC shop.
more expensive than the 'alternatives', but it does come with aluminum cup joints to match the set. upgrading the driveshaft isn't really an upgrade, more a required maintenance when running higher powered motors. anodized in the signature Tamiya blue, and fits perfectly with the chassis. don't forget to grease the joint.
