Introduced in 2003 under a Ferrari Enzo body, the TT01 chassis replaced the TL01 as Tamiya's mainstay value-priced car platform. Though intended for casual hobbyists & bashers, it features a race-inspired shaft-driven chassis with longitudinally-mounted battery and motor. The battery compartment features cutouts to lower the center of gravity of side-by-side racing packs and hold, but it's equally adept at holding a standard shotgun pack with the help of a reversible hold-down strap. The front & rear clips feature raised bumper plates that angle up to help bashers negotiate bumps & even small jumps. Differentials are gear-type with metal spiders inside plastic cases. Suspension is double-wishbone front & rear and not adjustable. Most models come with friction shocks. Many of the kits include the TEU101-BK ESC that requires the use of a BEC receiver. Some include LED lights with a modular TLU-01 controller that can be used in conjunction with an optional TLU-02 unit for dazzling dynamic lighting effects.

Pros: Low price, consistent shaft drive, durable Cons: Drivetrain slop, suspension slop, little adjustability
