Tested the truck that will be used at TCS by a newbie.  Works Great, no issues with anything breaking or binding.  Same speed as all the rest of the Trucks, it just handled well.  No issues with traction roll on VHT.

Perfect time to start building one for Club racing or TCS.  Take a look at the video Badboy posted lots of information on the build.  NorCal has them in stock too!  And they will be hosting TCS June 25, 2017.

Under the current rules the RPM Limits on the Torque Tuned Motors is 18,750rpm.  Out of the box they produce approximately 19,500rpm's.  The original rule was for the Johnson 540 silver can motors.  So Fred will make the proper adjustments to the TCS rule, so that everyone is legal.

Since the limit is too low on the TCS Torque Tuned RPM limit.  TCS will be raising the RPM rule pending Fred's approval.  They produce about 19,500 rpm out of the box.

I saw the Trucks at Norcal and with a tentative TCS stop at Norcal Hobbies in June 2017.  This class will just explode into the onroad scene.  They already have Tamiya Parts in stock as well.

Motor fan rule #32 states they are legal.  I don't think you would really need a capacitor with the Tamiya ESC.  And the instructions don't tell you to put one in.

Need more speed...

1)  Break in your bushings(bushing buster, brasso, whatever can polish brass)
2)  Break in your brushes(water dip, slave motor) just make sure you don't over do it.
3)  No grease on your gears.  Maybe white lightning, but not needed.
4) Start sanding down all of the plastic flashing on Every moving part on the chassis.(Dremel and/or 800grit sandpaper)
5) Forgot...put a fan on your motor. 540's run better cooler.

It's a box stock class...but 7 year olds in japan have some serious TT01 chassis that would make your head spin.

Tested this today with grease and without grease, no real difference.  However the one with grease was not hopping down the straight as much. 

You do need to make sure all four shocks "feel" the same.  Meaning one doesn't stick more than the other; again with or without grease.

We also tested 2 trucks one built by me and the other was built by a newbie.  They both had everything the same down to the Futaba 3pmx radios, servos and battery.

Biggest difference was the smooth moving parts vs notchy tight feeling.  So took the second one apart and had to CA some of the holes due to overtightening mainly on the chassis.  And removed flashing from the plastic pieces and BAM!  Two more happy RC enthusiasts.

A JIS (japanese industrial standard) screwdriver is a must for anyone that wrenches on a lot of lower end Tamiya kits that don't come equipped with hex head screws. Wish I knew this when I first got into the hobby....doh

I have built many TT01's since they came out.  The most important thing is to make sure the screws are.......

SCREWED IN STRAIGHT.....you will find that if they are not straight your linkages will bind or even worse you will break your front steering knuckle holes.  And DO NOT overtighten screws you will split the plastic.

Run everything dry, no grease.(grease will attract dirt/pebbles)  Just grease the front and rear diffs.  You can grease the shocks if you want dampening action.

When cutting out the body make sure you don't cut off the wrong lines, some of the flaps are needed.(look at the diagrams carefully)
 
The ESC is pre-programmed with reverse.  So program it out(TCS doesn't allow reverse)  Green light with 2 beeps is the setting.(removes reverse)
