Project: Tamiya Ferrari EuroTruck – TT01E MAN TGS

Tamiya’s MAN TGS EuroTruck has become a major hit in the US, popping up at almost every race track including the 2017 IIC (International Indoor Championships) held in Las Vegas!

I’ve had one now for quite some time and absolutely love it – the only changes allowed being bearings. As a fun project, I thought I would upgrade the TT01E with some of Tamiya’s aftermarket goodies and see how much performance I could get out of it … and here’s the result.

I hope you enjoy the video.
