Default Tamtech GT-01

Does anyone here own a GT-01? I you do, can you tell me how it runs in comparison to the GB-01? Since I am really enjoying my GB-01, am thinking about adding a GT-01 into my collection before they all disappear.

Another shout for the loverly GT-01 chassis cars,the bodysets are beutifully detailed,the reverse body mounts are a superb idea.
The cars are great runners and with a set of oil filled dampers and a nice brushless/lipo set up go really very well indeed.
They are also very tough and top fun to drive.
I have a few TTG`s,
On road,both Porsche 934 Jaegermiester and Vaillant versions,a Ferrari GTO.
Buggys,Frog and a Hotshot
I love em to bits

I'm just in the middle of building my GT-01 and wondered what servos you guys are using?

sorry for the thread jack - thought it might get some better attention here than in the vintage forum i was posting in...

so got my tamtech porsche, now needs some electrics, didnt realise that my regular gear wont fit so have to buy some new stuff £££

for starters, need a mini servo, one of the listed above. If i get the tamiya one, that should be a straight fit into a futuba reciever right? i heard they were all made by futuba?

also - looking to go brushless with esc then maybe after a while go lipo. For a while I will likely use the tamtech battery pack, is battery life likely to be really bad with a higher speed motor? Is there anywhere to get higher capacity tamtech battery sets made?

Also, do Lipo's & Nicads need different types of speed controllers? i've been recommended a Reedy setup to go with the brushless & tamtech battery, I dont ideally wanna have to spend for another esc when i eventually decide to go Lipo

twisty - where did you get the lipo battery pack made up from?

thanks ppl

The Tamiya ones fit straight in but a tad pricey,the others need the lugs trimming off i think.
I have 2 types of lipo`s fitted in my TTG`s,the smaller one came from Dinball[RC Mart] and is listed to fit TTG`S the other ones came from Ebay,username revolutionshop i think,i had to get the measuring stick out,it was a bit tight and i had to cut a small hole in the side of the chassis to get room for the wiring to exit.
A standard RX will fit,brushless motors and speedo`s are well cheap for this scale IMO,be brave

PS, you can use Lipo`s with brushed motors and ESC`s[without safety cut off],just don`t run them totally flat or they die,as soon as you feel it slowing down bring it in and stop,let it cool off a bit and get some charge back in,they will be fine.

hmm i was looking at the Reedy set up suggested by a retailer but he's informed me it wont run with Lipo's

to be honest Twisty i might end up investing in your setup as i am getting mixed answers from most of the retailers i ask with regards to what i can and cant do!

I can't afford Lipo's quite yet, so will be using the tamtech standard battery for a while, looks like it works with both LIPO & Nicd setups

also - many thanks for answering my q's, i know I have many, I do google first : ) but seem to get retailer links...

The problem i found with the tiny modified brushed motors is the brushes are so small they tend to burn out pretty quick.Brushless last and last.
Lipo`s for this scale are nearly as cheap as Nimh`s and with regards the retailers saying you can`t run lipo`s with brushed motors and esc`s is true if you are a nugget and keep running them untill they go completely flat,it does kill the lipo,but like i said before,if you stop running as you feel the power tailing off,they are fine.
I aint trying to sell you anything squire,been running Lipo`s for nearly 4 years now and never had any problems with them
I even run Lipo`s in my old Tamiya Mountaineer,that has a brushed motor and an old ESC with no safety cut off,never had a problem or killed a Lipo yet.[touch wood for luck]
