tt-01 semi-rally

Bits arrived this week for my tt-01, first up was the wheels, disappointed that they need to have the tyres glued on but no biggy, gotta find the time to paint em soon. Then i did the shocks they are ta-05 shocks and came with fine 3mm threaded stuff that didn’t really suit the plastic tt-01 still I battled on and found some long self threading screws with out shanks for the bottom of the shocks and then used 3mm bar at the top set deep into the plastic to mount the upper ball joint. Haven’t tested it yet but it should be good only weak point is the upper mount and if they fail it’s just some 3mm bar and eight 3mm nuts to create a really strong solution.

Also got a turnbuckle tie-rod set for the steering tamiya stuff really nice, some day now I’ll mod the chassis for a little bit more articulation get the handling more scale, shocks aren’t long enough for an out right rally car so I’ll just stick to tarmac rallying.

Bloody gilera can’t even bloody sit there bloody quietly with out some bloody thing breaking. fecking!!!

Right now I’m servicing this thing, oil in the frame had me stumped for a minute when only 500ml’s of oil came out of the engine 🙂

The honda 50 challenge battle scars, ted still made it around the ring of kerry despite the petrol tank (which doubles as a seat) cracking and letting out quite a lot of petrol and ruining the paintwork.

Also I’ve been playing with the busa’s suspension found out the standard setting and it’s still wasn’t right… then I got a manual from, I had the compression and rebound adjusters the wrong way around, DOH!
