Eagle Racing Countersteer Gears for Tamiya TT-01 Chassis

Time for TT01 owners to rejoice, Eagle Racing has finally released a countersteer CS gears set for the Tamiya TT-01 chassis. Active Hobby was the first, now Eagle Racing the second company to start producing these CS gears. In the past when Active Hobby gears ran out, you had to sit patiently and wait for the next production run of those gears. Luckily now there is the Eagle Racing alternative. These new CS gears will provide a ratio of 1:1.44 (44% more rear drive than the front), just enough to get started into countersteer drifting.

***EDIT: This set of TT-01 Gears is designed for the Eagle Racing TT-01 Front motor conversion chassis.*** (Read below discussion for more information)

This gear set is great for any beginner looking to start their path down the countersteer modified drifters category. Check it out today.

The Eagle Racing TT-01 1.44 Countersteer Gears include:
20T and 36T bevel gear
Solid axle/Rear spool axle
New rear propeller shaft

      1. Is there any kind of review of this new CS? People are really reluctant to try this new one knowing the bad qualitiy of the active hobby one… what do you think?

        1. Eagle has just released this product so no review so far. I understand what you mean with the active hobby CS kit, the plastic is soft and if not shimmed properly it shreds easily. I have personally destroyed a set before understanding how to shim it correctly. Just take care and attention when installing it.
          So far our experience with Eagle Racing products has been very good, they stand up quite well. Just take your time and attention when installing it, make sure its a good mesh before running.

          1. Thank you for your comment. I’ll do so. I hope I will be able to set it correctly! I’m quite new in RC Drift and I know that TT-01D have limits but I’m willing to try CS drift 😉 I also hope that the pack includes some instructions

          2. Yes the tt-01 is very limited especially when you start CS modifications for it. If you really enjoy CS, then I recommend that you limit the upgrading of this chassis and start looking to find something new that is more capable. Good luck!

    1. Hi. I received my CS one week ago but I’m not able to install it. The propeller shaft is too short (shorter than the stock one) and doesn’t even have the whole to fix the main gear! My TT-01D is completely stock. What about you?

      1. I’m Running Eagle racing Driftt tt- 01 front motor in my case the dif with the spur is front so the propeller shaft in the CS kit is  actually my back but in the original TT-01 they are backwards

          1. i forgot the supplied prop is yousable only with the Eagle Racing drift front motor tt-01 or if you have any other front motor conversion kit active or home made

          2. Thanks for your answer mate. I noticed about that when I tried to install the CS one time and another.. then I sent an email to BroadTech (I bought it there) asking for what was happening, and they finally said that it can’t fit the TT-01 stock chasis. In consequence, they have added a note in the advertisment telling that it won’t fit. I have already tried to use the stock propeller shaft joint but then the umbrella gear doesn’t fit correctly in it. I need a larger propeller shaft joint. Do you know any model that has a similar propeller shaft? Thank you. 

          3. yes your right my bad . i have a problem and i need help can you write me the broad tech email from that they send you the e mail i order drift conversion but something is wrong with my order i send email but no reply from them

          4. thank you and your right so sorry 🙁 for that problem 🙁   but if you can find the active hobby umbrella gear you can use it my friend have the active kit and it is in a stock TT 01 so the active   umbrella gear is ok for stock tt 01 he will change to eagle racing kit  i can ask him to sell you the active   umbrella gear but i don’t promise i will ask him ok ??? 

          5. ok thank you. I’m really interested in this issue. Do you think that the Active umbrella will fit de Eagle gear differential? 

          6. The Active “umbrella” gear is designed for the original TT01 Prop shaft, so it should fit, but check the gear difference between the eagle gear and active gear.

          7. Thank you for your interest. But I’m not totally convinced of using the Active umbrella gear.I can’t understand how Active one can fit without having the same problem, is it larger? In this case it won’t fit because it won’t exactly fit with the differential gear… mmm i’m a bit confused about all this… I also thought to try to perform a  front conversion from the stock one, rotating the whole chasis, arms etc. By the way, where is your friend from? Do you know the Active umbrella price? Thank you Pavlin

          8. Sorry to hear that it did not work properly. Thank you for the insight and have already put a note into the post letting future buyers know.  Currently cannot think of any other chassis for you to get a longer shaft from, will let you know if we think of any.

          9. Thank you and I hope my unfortunate experience will avoid other people to buy the CS taking for granted that it is will fit the stock chassis.

      1. empathize with the people who have problems installing it or finding it thats all personally i don’t have problem with the cs it is ok for me  i have the eagle racing drift conversion so it is ok nice kit

  1. HI there! Been drifting wid my TT-01 for over a year now and have enjoyed. Wanting to get the ER TT-01 GRTv2. It looks like its front mount/front midship. Confused much… will this work for this chassis? and what do I do for the front diff? Open??? HELP GUYS!

    1. Sorry for the late reply, glad you found the information you were after.  The front one-way diff is popular among RC Drifters, it might be something you want to try.  Otherwise the stock tt01 gears will work.
