Ice Road Truckers is awesome and she's a cute little thing

The Rush hasn't been used I'm afraid.

Hope the weather stays good for you when you are away mate.

Sounds like your freind is lucky to have you about, I take it he's very local to you then?

I'll have a look at that link for the spare part.

That's very similar to the diff one of our Touring cars needed.
Say touring cars as they haven't had drift tyres fitted for months, use them for speed.

Well dus buddy, would never sell the bycmos, we did have them out a month or so back.

The new cars are much better to use with the 4x4 and the brushless motors.

I know what you mean about the shumacher not being used....may as well sell.

Realy need to experiment with the Rush and try to figure out how it works properly but there is always something else to do.

These cars were fine during the winter but now they cut out after 5 mins dus.

Going to drill the chassis to get more air into the motor.

hi ian
couldnt you cut the windows out
say all the side windows or just both the front doors
and the grill and then get some mesh from b&q and hot glue it in place
instead of drilling the chassis??

Yo Dus, was going to update,

It's ok having cooling on the shell, do usually cut a vent in the front window and side window.

The chassis should now cool the motor a lot better, will put a pic on.

Last time it was used we used 2 4600mah packs back to back, so cooling seems to have worked.

Want to look into Lipos, trying to decide what to go for, we need 7.4v 2cell packs.

Will put some pics up and read your truck forum posts and report back.

Ah right, I remember you saying about someone who has their own large layout.

Are you going to buy them then?

Ok, well been a bit busy,
Got a version 2 speed controller for the lads car because the version 1 wasn't as fast, the fan didn't spin fast enough and the version2 also has more programming options.

Not finished yet.

Drilled holes to cool the motor as it is in a bad place for cooling, it already had a motor heatsink.
Got a bigger motor cog too for both.

Few pics:

Mine is perfect now with the added speed controller heatsinks.






Version 1 and version 2

hi ian
you could drill the whole of the chassis
it will make the car faster and lighter
but you may loose all the strength
as its a plastic chassis

here is a link to the peak truck show
http://scaletrucks.bb3host.com/viewt...hp?f=18&t=1382
i was going to take the bycmo
i put it on the bed
then i forgot it at the last moment
im such a dumbass

Drilled the bits that will count dus mate.

Your truck meet looked completely awesome mate... like a scale of real life.
Must have been realy good driving your truck around that lot.

Bet you had hours of fun going round that set up

Might have a bid on that.

Hi all

I have just won one of teh Bycmo Subarus on ebay for the princly sum of £14 including delivery for the car and virtually all the magazines.
Some of the upgrade options have been fitted while some are still attached to the mags. At the moment I only seem to be missing one of the upgraded wheel sets (issues 47, 49, 52, and one other). Has anybody got one they would be willing to sell?
Also, if I want to upgrade to an esc how do I work out which would be suitable? For example is this one OK? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EL-Model-R...item3f038e7e19

Thanks for any help

Vince

Whoops also need a front transmission upgrade from issues 51 or 53. I think the rear ones are teh same so that would be issues 46 or 48
Thanks

hi vince
welcome to the forum
you could ask ian78 if he has any bycmo wheels
or you could always upgrade the hex hubs to 12mm hex hubs
that way you can run any wheels you like (like tamiya,hpi ect)
as far as the esc goes i dont see there being much of a problem

hope that helps
