Tamiya TT-01 Review, The Tamiya TT-01, TT-01R, TT-01D

When I was looking for this car and it’s variants, no-one nowhere seemed to answer the simple question, which is the best?

Well I cant tell you that but I would’ve been greatful to see a comparison of all the main stream models/ builds like this. I would’ve bought the TT-01R out of the lot if i knew

The TT-01 Comes in a few variants, the 3 I defiantly know about are TT-01 which is the base model, the TT-01R which has a lot of the hop-ups already installed and the TT-01D which comes with drift tires and adjustable suspension parts, here’s the write up for mine.

TT-01D

TT-01

The BMW Z4 first made its debut in 2002 as the replacement for the earlier Z3 roadster. A few years later, the coupe version was unveiled, and it wasn’t long before BMW’s M Division went to work turning it into a full-fledged racing car. The result was the stylish BMW Z4 M Coupe Racing, which Tamiya now brings to you as the newest addition to our ever-expanding lineup of electric R/C cars on the reliable TT-01 chassis

  • Lightweight and user-friendly TT-01 chassis modified by reversing rear suspension arms to create the shorter wheelbase (251mm) for greater scale accuracy.
  • 4WD shaft driven bathtub chassis with coil spring damped, 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension and sealed front and rear differential gearbox.
  • All-new body shell accurately recreates the sleek lines of the Z4 M Coupe race car and is made from durable polycarbonate.
  • Markings and painting instructions included to depict the car in BMW Motorsport works livery.
  • Includes electronic speed controller (TEU-101 BK) and type 540 motor.
  • Includes LEDs for head and tail lights that turn on automatically when the car is switched on.
  • Metal-plated light fixtures enhance the realistic appearance of the LEDs.
  • Add the TLU-02 Light Control Unit (ITEM 53937) for greater control of light operations.
  • Wide varieties of tune-up parts are separately available to customize your machine.

This is the write up and spec list for the TT-01D

Popularized by such movies as Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and the well-known animation series Initial D, the once amateur sport of drift racing now has a wide audience and professional race series. Tamiya now brings you the Mazda RX-7 (FD3S) rotary-powered sports car on the drift-spec TT-01D chassis complete with LED lights to let you drift in style.

The overall chassis has been designed for easy assembly and maintenance making it perfect for those new to R/C cars. A full range of option parts are also available (sold separately) allowing you to draw out the full potential of this high performance chassis.
