    My New HL T-34 Suspension/Conversions

    well first thing i said was i'm going to lower the suspension
    so that's what i did
    i cut some styrene to fit into under the first three swingarm pins to shim up the swingarms

    The T34 is the best quality Heng Long has ever produced. Mine comes with a 2.4G radio and the speed control is much improved with a very linear in the start-up/slow speed region. The only issue with the H/L T34 is that it sits about 3mm to high off the tracks, apart from that a very nice tank....

    Can some lucky owner of this tank check what the rating is for the round speaker?

    Old style ones were 0.5 W 8 Ohm

    Thank you Airbrushler. The wattage is not clear, but the speaker is quite different from the older model.

    You're welcome Borealis
    yes it is a lot smaller it sounds ok but i would amagine if putting different electronics you would want to upgrade the speaker to get the best sound possible

    Thanks for showing us this. Looks like there are two positions to clock the springs as well? See in photo 2 and 3.

    Did you only shim up the first 3 swingarms? I did all 5 on mine with roughly the same thickness of styrene, it works great.

    Naw I don't think so, maybe by 1mm or so so it'd be barely noticeable.

    Does it not lean forward a bit though? Seems mostly cosmetic, I dont think slacking the tracks off a bit will change how it handles rough ground.

    Since I couldn't find it in under 3 minutes with Google.. which T-34s had which road wheels?


    There's always the option of having both... as history demonstrates.

    My understanding was the solid were early (obr 42-43) and the ones with holes are later like the ones sold to the Saudis.

    I'd go with the solid ones, and the front fenders were curved down not angled. You might find a lot
    of parts in Trumpeter's 1/16 static T34/76

    Looks sharp. The thought crossed my mind to paint the side walls white on mine...I just wasn't sure if the later versions had that.

    The white side walls were mostly for parades, which would make an interesting variation.

    Where did you finally get the solid wheels? Looks great, maybe I'll try that option. Could do a North Korean version to match with the Pershing.
