    RE: New Kart from hobbyking

    Wooo looks good, minus the driver but a lil paint can fix that (paint him white like The Stig ) interesting with the CF chassis and brush less drive. How much to ship out to here is the question [>:] Other than that, if we had a carpet track i'd snap one up

    If this is a promotional shot, then why does it look like a 5 year old did the wiring?

    RE: New Kart from hobbyking

    whats so bad about the battery being held in with zip ties. Comeon, most pro guys in on-road ive seen use filament tape to hold their packs in . And the Kyosho one is nitro/aluminum chassis I think "scale go-cart racing" would be fun if the steering wheel worked and the drivers turned their heads as you turned the car

    Shouldn't be too hard IMO all that needs to be done it, branch the turn servo and mount the wheel to a micro servo, can do the same for the head shove the servo in the drivers rear, cut the head off, drill a hole from where the servo can sit through the neck, run a pole to the servo through the body, and glue the head to the servo's pole

    My old HPI's had the battery compartment held in by zip-ties. It worked so IMO that is a non issue.

    RE: New Kart from hobbyking

    That is the excact same way to do it as i thought A servo up yours, hehe! And somehow get the arms soft/make some hinges (if they not already are) so the arms move with the steering wheel. That would be cool!

    well could use some nitro fuel tube I guess and dye it with rit Dye to match what you paint Heat it up to try and melt it into a shape (not sure how good that would work
    Or steal a jacket off a ken doll or something from some little girls dolls(whatever fits), and glue the hands to the end of the jacket
    I'm sure other ppl could come up with other ways/materials too

    I had a toy like that when I was younger, minus the head turning. I think it would be rather easy to make the wheel turn..just connect it to the steering linkage.
