    RE: Elimination of HL M41A3, 3rd. and 4th. roadwheel struts

    great idea.....I do think he should havea little metal ear or something that hangs over the edge so that the springdoesn't have that sharp bend at the top, I see that as being a bit of a weak point where it might break sooner or later...

    RE: Elimination of HL M41A3, 3rd. and 4th. roadwheel struts



    Hello DirtyBird69,
    Yes I do agree. By the way SUGO has been thinking something further about the 1st,2nd,5th roadwheel struts....in real bulldog there are no coilsprings there!!! what we could see are only shockabsorbers. So he is thinking of the coilsprings elimination in this moment.

    NOTE: There are no coilsprings in real bulldog struts.

    RE: Elimination of HL M41A3, 3rd. and 4th. roadwheel struts

    Hi all,
    After discussing with SUGO, we are aiming for specific upgrades as follow,

    1. Hide the coil springs at the 1st.2nd. and 5th. struts of bulldog. (Also for M26)

    2.Remaking of the HL M26 suspension .

    So meantime SUGO is preparing all the necessary stuffs and he might be ready to start within 2 weeks.
    We will come back with new posts about 1 and 2

    Note : left photo..... this coil spring will be hidden inside of the shock absorber cylinder
    mid. photo....real M26 suspension.
    left photo....HLwrong suspension......It won't be long.

    We'll be back at the middle ofseptember.... bye.

    RE: Elimination of HL M41A3, 3rd. and 4th. roadwheel struts

    These look great!  Loved the videos (btw...thanks for the tip on my YouTube video...I would've missed this thread without it).  Any progress on decisions to produce these as kits?  I'd love to get the upper shafts and springs.  Any progress on the shock absorbers or the M26 suspension?

    BTW...HennTec already does an idler adjuster and metal road wheels for both the M41 and the M26.  If you can beat their price, you'd be onto something.

    Hello philipat,
    Thank you for you comment . As I knew SUGO has 3 or 4 tanks from friends parking in his room waiting for modifications ...
    One of them is HL M26 of which he plans to correct the suspension and transform it to be Super Pershing.
    About the kit making ....may be in the future SUGO might produce them , I hope.
    Thank you once again.

    Because it's a fun model and why not improve the glaring errors that you can improve?

    RE: Elimination of HL M41A3, 3rd. and 4th. roadwheel struts

    Hi gentlemen,
    So far we have a lot of funs improving HLs and found that we spent economic amount on those rc.tanks.
    Last month my son bought mea second handed WSN T34/85 then SUGO has been modifying it .....480 motors with steel gears with HL boards and the budget is so small...67 for tank, 8 for motors and free for the gears, boards,radio (present from friends) so 75 US. dollars totally.
    When we modify HLsthere are many stuffs remain unuse such as boards, radios, gears and we oftenly give the stuffs to friends.

    Couple days ago SUGO has just finished his custom made track tension adjuster for his friend's HL Panther G.
    It's a gift for his friend.
    Note: I 'll post this matter in another topic name.

    Looks great!  Would love to see a few of these things get sold as kits...or the CAD drawings with specifications.  I could have my brother make these for me.

    Hello philipat,
    Meantime SUGO did it as his hobby I also ask him making for me one but it might be months waiting coz he 's quite so busy. LOL
