Active Hobby Japan was one of the first to produce a countersteer CS modified kit for the Tamiya TT-01 chassis. Tamiya TT-01 owners have always been restricted to the traditional 1.44 ratio from Active, because those were the only sets available. Now Active Hobby has announced the availability of 1.5 and 2.0 Counter-steer CS ratios for the TT-01 chassis. A new solid spool/axle looks to be included as part of this kit. This means that TT-01 owners will have options when it comes to CS modifications.
This gear set is great for any beginner looking to start their path down the countersteer modified drifters category. These new CS gears will provide a ratio CS ratio of 1.5 or 2.0; 50% overdrive or 100% overdrive respectively. These gears are made of high quality Delrin material because of lightweight and excellent wear resistance. Active Hobby TT-01 CS kit includes a rear spool axle but utilizes stock TT-01 out-drives. This means that you can use your old dog-bones without changing the entire assembly to universal drive-shafts. Active Hobby also sells all these gears separately in case you have a problem and strip one of the gears.
STR102 – Active Hobby TT-01 1.5 Countersteer kit include:
17T and 22T bevel gear
Solid axle/Rear spool axle
Approximate MSRP: ¥3000JPY
STR123 – Spare Gears Version 2.0 (17t/22t)
STR124 – Spare Gears Version 1.5 (17t/29t)
MSRP for Spare Gears: ¥2000JPY
Personally we have used this gear in our old TT-01 and it is very important that during install everything is shimmed properly. We highly recommend that you take your time installing this and ensuring a proper gear meshing before using it. Also after one run, open up the gearbox and check to make sure everything is still proper.
