    I really think RCU should make a section for the semi tractors and trailers...

    RE: Knight Hauler and Box Trailer build thread

    Forgot that I am subscribed to this thread! Good to see TEX's old thread back to life!

    Seeing TEX's KH in person was one of the reasons why I ended up w/ the Aeromax!!

    It would be cool if they did, but I have a feeling that they would more likely just make another section for Redcat since they are a sponsor.

    RE: Knight Hauler and Box Trailer build thread

    How fast does the Knight Hauler go?

    What is the suspension like?

    In the videos I have seen, all the trucks are on smooth surfaces, but out here all the side streets & parking lots are brick (see picture below). Would the Tractor Truck Oil Shock help?

    What would be a good radio since the 4VWD is discontinued?

    RE: Knight Hauler and Box Trailer build thread

    You'll be fine on that brick, some of the streets here are brick like that as well and the suspension is leaf like the 350. The oil shock would be a good hop up since the stock suspension is bouncy.

    I ran mine on gravel, you'll be fine.

    ORIGINAL: []TEX[]

    OK, NOW it's time to mount the speaker box. I used two layers of velcro to secure the MFU instead of the supplied dbl stick tape. It is a weak think antivibration tape. Plus, the speakerbox must be removed to access the transmission and other parts so the velcro makes for easy removal.

    The box on the upper left is the vibration unit. Much like on a cell phone, just much larger scale[8D].

    The Rx has velcro too.

    There are three through way holes in the base plate. The main set of wires, as you can see, have been run through the center. I also ran the antenna wire underneath.
    What do you mean by using "two layers of velcro"?

    I see that there are 2 strips (left & right), but if I look closer at the picture it seems like you put a "bottom" (fuzzy part) on top of another "bottom".

    SICK! That's a very complete list!

    So you are getting the box trailer?! Not the open trailer, right?!

    I was hoping that you'd get something other than Aeromax / Knight Hauler so we can see something new, hee... still excellent, of course!

    Yep, I'm SICK - just like you

    The main reason I got the Knight Hauler / Box trailer combo is because it reminds me of growing up in the 70's when trucking was such a big thing.

    rcMart, Tower, ebay (sometimes)

    If I buy locally, then I would be paying out the nose.

    For example the Knight Hauler would cost 479.00 EUR (747.821 USD) if I bought it locally, yet with shipping it only cost 239.072 EUR (373.27 USD) when buying from rcMart.

    RE: Knight Hauler and Box Trailer build thread

    I picked out the paint that I am going to use - Spaz Stix multi-color changing paint (Gold/Green/Orange/Purple). Since the cab is quite large, it should pop really well with all the chrome trim.

    If I can find some realistic lettering, then I might add that also but until then it will be a solid color scheme.

    RE: Knight Hauler and Box Trailer build thread

    I just picked up the Futaba 4EXA radio for the semi project - I am sure I will find uses for the other 3 memory slots [X(]

    Since I had to buy it locally to avoid any frequency problems, this package is a little different than the one from the US.

    Tx = T4EX
    Rx = R136F (6 channel receiver)
    Servo = 3x S3003 (not going to be used)

    Hoe gaat het?

    got mine to self-centre at the authorised futaba distributor in s'pore for the equivalent of 5EUR, or about US$7.

    btw, speaking about paintjobs, i'm intending to send my globeliner cab to a shop that paints cars. i've asked around in local forums for the right proportion of thinner and paint, and it seems that automotive paint on plastic works with that "magic" proportion. i've seen a couple of rigs with automotive paint, and after 5 years, they are still shining and gleaming!!
