    Looks like something out of a MadMax movie. I love it. Just curious though, why slicks in the back and knobies in the front?

    RE: Home made RC Car 47cc water cooled . What do you think ?

    Lot's and lot's

    Most of the car got changed more than once during the build.

    Still not happy with steering servo , Has to much movement in gear box

    Brakes work much better with big servo and 19mm master cylinder

    Runs 19mm drive shaft with uni's from engine to gear box & diff they are one unit

    Want to move clutch back and fit crank mounted starter/generator to engine , mainly for its charging ability

    Gear box and diff is made up from pocket bike reduction box modified so input & output are same plane

    Crown wheel & pinion are 9" grinder , the center had spring loaded clutch's & one way bearing's on inderpendant shafts

    Since blown diff center apart 4 times now . I have locked it for now will redesign locker for better turning

    Rear drive shaft's are double ended c/v joint with a spline slip joint between them for 10mm shaft ,

    they come from HONDA self propelled push mower

    Had to remake rear stub axle's from 4140 as i sheered one off at around run 5

    been hunting for something like these, do you have a link where you got them or did they come from a donor mower

    cheers bud...i found em for 40each at quickieparts.com

    looking at the pipe also gave me a another great source...need to fab a couple to fit within a given space, was looking at boat pipes to alter then rolled cones to start from scratch but now see i can get pocket bike ones for 100bucks for 2 shipped

    i'm glad you shared your rig with us...not only is it cool it has helped me source 2 items i was struggling to find that'd work for my current project
