  • RC Cars:Delta Lancia TT01E

Posted 24 November 2013 - 10:08 PM

Hi guys, i am fairly new to the Rc cars, i only play with my twins boys on the front yard. I bought the Delta Lancia TT01E Last year from MSUK and it came as stock.

 

I would love your input on the upgrade options i have here,  I have already upgraded the Drive shaft, Dog bone axle and Bearing steering to the Hopup Aluminium.

 

I am now currently looking at getting a little more speed so the options i have seen on MSUK (within budget)

 

Hobbywing EZRUN Combo B9 - 5.5t 6000kV + 60A SL Waterproof (On-Road) @ £99 <- Would you recommend this and why

 

Also i would like to use the stock battery 7.2v and additional 11.1v

 

Many Thanks, look forward to your replies...

Did you fit a fit a full bearing kit as it is vital for longevity of parts.

Re the combo you linked to, I run HW kit on 2s in 2wd Tamiya without issue, on a 13t motor. 5.5t should be fine for the 4wd platform, tho you may need to play with pinion/spur gears to keep running temps down. I would recommend buying RW racing hardened steel pinions also for lipo use, the stock ones are very weak.

The ESC is lipo only, as stock, the fan will take 2s, but u need to swap it out for a bigger version to run 3s. Easy to program and set up. Bear in mind that the tamiya rally cars are meant to run at scale speeds, not set land speed records...

I wouldnt run a 5.5t in a TT01 even with upgrades, will flatten the spur and diff bevels within 2 runs. Id run a max of 9.5t for a good mix of speed and power geared to 23/58. Dont forget a good solid RW pinion.

Thanks for your replies, I was looking at 13t motor but I think it's best to get a 8.5 high powerered now so if I did get a newer car I can use the motor. I haven't done a full bearing upgrade yet. I will need to do some research on that as I am not sure how it's done.

So going forth, I would need to do full bearing, pinion/spur 23/58 before adding the motor?

Checklist:

Aluminium propeller shaft and cups
Full ballrace kit
Speed gear spur set
RW pinion
Aluminium motor mount.

More than ample then for a spanking.

Thanks nutty professor, car is fully ball raced & has the smallest pinion already installed (checked with msuk) as it's xbs. Drive shaft done last week, so ordered the mount and gone for the 8.5t ezrun motor. I'll let you guys know the outcome.

Pinion or Spur? Because it makes a massive difference to which one it is.

I am still currently looking into the gears/spur along with battery. This is what I currently have http://www.modelspor...roduct_id=38310.

I am trying to work out if I will need lipo battery and charger. As for the gears I am not sure which setup to go with. This is the motor I have purchased http://www.modelspor...products/376987

Any recommendations is much appreciated

I did actually say NOT to get the 5.5t combo, it will twist the ally prop shaft and wreak your gears. You better stock up on diff parts then, you will need them.

I didn't go for the 5.5t went for the 8.5t as you recommended above,

I only have the stock tyres that came with it, Looks good quality with good grip.

I opened the car up a little more today and found the bearings are plastic, so i had changed the ones on either drive shaft,

i don't feel confident enough to opening the suspension area just incase i can't put it back together again,

I also found the Spur (plastic) is 61T and pinion (metal) but not sure what size that is.

And i believe i will need lipo 7.4v 2s Battery and charger as these will not work? am not sure if that true or not.

I should have the Motor & Mount tomorrow so i will have a go at putting that in...

Change all the bearings while you have it stripped, just note which way the diffs are.
