    TT02 has me interested , rumours abound on the web , some claiming it will be a belt drive other claiming they have seen it and its just a reheated TB02 (which i highly doubt!)
    personaly i hope that tamiya have addressed many of the issues that existed in the TT01 such as the silly moulded in suspension arm mounts, whacky placky drive shafts and rather duff friction dampers, they need to make it more useable for club level racing right out of the box which a company of Tamiya’s standing should be easily able to do and still keep the price down , 3 racing have with the Sakura range so, come on Tamiya ,pull out all the stops and show us what you can do.

    Those rumour saying it’s gonna be TB-02 are from 2010, i wouldnť believe them..
    I hope TT02 will be atleast as equipped as cheap chinese cars… Ball bearings, steel shafts, oil or at least friction shocks.

    Belt drive is cheaper drivetrain but i think Tamiya choose shaft drive, as it’s better for dirty tracks and easier to maintance. Question is if Tamiya choose classic design or something crazy similar to TA-06/DF-03Ra, maybe it’ll be comeback of TL-01…

    I take it, these are the news for the upcoming Toy Fair i Germany?

    But a month prior to the opening? What a nice surprise :-)

    Hmm, I was hoping for a the original Hilux to appear or the Chevolet Blazer (both on the new Bruiser chassis). Maybe my hopes are to high ;-)

    And yes, I look forward to see the TT02 chassis.

    Best Regards

    Is that a new TXT-2 monster truck or aluminum shocks?

    In one week we will report from Nuremberg Fair and know more.

  • RE:
    We R/C hobby enthusiasts would like to see the TXT redesigned with today’s brushless power systems and LiPo battery technology in mind. The stock TXT drive shafts were a major weak link of this truck and prevented the truck from reaching its maximum potential with racers and bashers alike. The universal joints could not stand up to the torque of twin 17×1 brushed motors let alone a high powered brushless system. A new single motor brushless ready transmission with a slipper clutch like is offered in the Traxxas E-Maxx, which happens to be a popular mod for owners of this truck, would be a fantastic update. Owners also have been adapting Traxxas E-Revo drive shafts as a fix to the weak stock shafts. We would also like to see heavy duty axles and axle housings as well. Overall we would just like to see the next step in the evolution of the electric monster truck from the manufacturer that started it all. The scale realism of the TXT is a major selling point so please retain the scale appeal.

    Other weak areas that hobbyists have been improving on are the 4 link mounts on the top of the differential case. People have been using aluminum plates to tie them together for more strength and some have used epoxy as well.
    A possible solution is to make the axles and transmissions available in kit form as complete units as you have done for the Clodbuster axles and TLT axles. If the cost can be kept within reason (~$70 per axle) then I think that would satisfy a lot of people’s needs that currently own these trucks and people considering buying the axle sets for custom builds.
    Replacement parts that should remain available and be easily accessible to hobbyists are:
    1) Axle cases, diff cases, internal diff gears, transmission gears, transmission case, outer stub shafts, inner axle shafts (same as Clod), and knuckles (same as Clod).
    2) Screw Bag G, which contains the axle input shafts so Juggernaut axles can be converted to TXT axles.
    3) TXT rims which are popular with Clodbuster racers as well.
    4) Upper axle gears, just the gears and the shafts not the whole metal parts bag.
    5) Hobbyists have also commented on various message boards that they would like to see the gray plastic TXT wheel adapter sold separately rather than having to buy four whole parts tree to get them.
