Eagle Racing TT-01 GRT Drift Conversion

Eagle Racing has just released a revised version of their GRT conversion kit for the Tamiya TT-01 chassis. The new conversion kit transforms the TT-01 into a more capable chassis for RC drifting. This conversion kit changes the motor position to the front of the car where the weight is better optimized for RC drift needs. If you are a Tamiya TT-01 enthusiast, then this is a good upgrade for you!

The Eagle Racing TT-01 GRT Version 2 conversion kit will transform the traditional TT-01 into a RC drift machine. The new kit effectively shifts the motor to the front for better weight balance and control while drifting. The new version 2 chassis has been redesigned to eliminate the top brace. It is now fitted with a stiffener below the driveshaft, similar to the new TB-03 VDS design. The new kit also boasts increased steering angle, especially useful if you are going for counter steer modifications. The GRT conversion kit replaces the plastic tub chassis with a Carbon FRP chassis that will provide better stiffness and rigidity for more consistent performance. This conversion kit is very well equipped with alloy and carbon FRP goodies!

  1. F… all this GRT and alloy. i just want a metal CS kit that wont get chewed in a blink
    yokomo has them, why no body else do it
    just so frustrating

          1. dude that’s awesomeΒ 
            i saw u posting that befor but u did’nt seem to be sure about that

    1. You are right, sometimes I question their motives with the TT01.Β  Its as if they let the gears work long enough for you to crave CS and hopefully upgrade to a more robust chassis such as the VDF or VDS.
      Yokomo DP’s are still the only chassis with ample parts support from 3rd party manufacturers.Β 

  2. This conversion compared to the original version looks completely different. I guess converting a ver 1 to ver 2 wouldn’t be an easy process like the TA05 GRT Ver2 was.
    Also, it doesn’t look like they allow weight to be added in the front bumper for the ver2. Β I kind of liked that feature.Β 

    1. Yes it looks radically redesigned compared to version 1. Β 
      Personally I would like to see a TA05 GRT high traction…. maybe I will have to try in the future…. πŸ˜‰

  3. I was wondering if anyone who has bought this kit is using a 3racing front one way and the Active CS 2.0 kit? If so, how well does it fit together? What did you have to do with the front one way to make it work?

    1. This kit has a reverse front one-way axle. Due to the position of the motor, everything spins in the opposing direction, which means traditional front one-way does not work. Have never tried the Active 2.0 kit myself, but I have also abandoned my TT-01 long ago for a more capable chassis.

      1. What if I can reverse the direction of my motor? That should make the 3racing front one way usable, correct?

  4. Hello, I have a kit of these in my car and to have a problem because he has a large gap in the direction that is normal? He will always be pulling to one side, what do I do?

    1. Did you center the servo before attaching turnbuckle?
      I was having similar problems. Do you know how long the turnbuckle(tie rod) connection servo to steering arm is supposed to be? Thanks!

  6. I think the actual conversion kit picture should be posted so that people will know what they are getting when they buy one and not be confused into buying it and expecting that it has full set of suspension arms, dampers and all the works thinking that this is a full rolling kit when you buy it. the lower picture even shows a pair of suspension arms…is that really included in the kit? Weird if they only have one pair…I remember building one a few months back and it is just exactly as shown in the bottom picture without the arms. I’ve had a lot of people asking me about this and now I too am confused if they are selling the ver2 in full option…are they? I know they have the TT01 full option kit but it is definitely not the GRT ver2…please correct me if I’m wrong.

  7. has anyone purchased this kit or anything else for broadtech.hk are they legit ?
    would like to do an order but looks abit suss! Thanks

  8. I just got this kit and its worlds of a difference to a stock TT01 chassis with 1.5 cs gears. Kit comes with everything on the picture including the front lower arm and also Eagle’s own motor cooling fan. I’m very happy with it cause I feel this kit makes the chassis handle similar to high end chassis. Its the reason I got the conversion so I can compete with my friend’s MST ms01d. It’s not perfect cause I had issues with steering and the front lower arm including with the kit. The lower arm from the kit was a very tight fit causing force when steering and didn’t have much up and down suspension travel. Using stock lower arms or stock lengths, your going to have to grind the and of the steering end part from the front steering knuckle cause it hits and binds into the steering arm that connects to the servo. Aside from little issues its probably the best conversion to date to make a TT01 into a competitive drift chassis.

  9. Is this mod available to TT01 XB? i just bought a TT01 XB not long ago, am doing some research on the upgrades available to make it more realistic in drifting.
