    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread

    You have to post final pictures. I am intrigued.

    I would alos love it if you could post all the parts required for the conversion as well as dimensions of the motor mount!

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread



    Yes, no problems for the pictures, but I'll post them, when the black matte paint is cured, now its drying behind me, over the wardrobe.
    About the specs of the motormount... nothing special here, I've only used the original 4screw holes from the nitro engine on the chassiss, and the holes for the motor - 3 here. The other ones, are with no specialmeasure or something else, thats abosolutely up to you.
    The material is duralumin, 4 mm, the strongest conssistension, 74 was, if I'm not wrong, and the only one, I've had around me. The vertical part is from 2 plates, just glued in between, for the 4 fitting screws, guess you can see them - 2 at the top, and 3 at the bottom, becouse of the 2 holding screws. And every one of them is locked with thread lock TL-242.

    Also I'v made last night, front lights, mounted in the 4 holes in the bumper, and the final result is just great. Also will be rear lights, mouted in the lower susp. armholes, they will be 3 in paralel on every side., all 10 LED's will be switchable, by the 3rd channel, with servo, just for contact. Thiss system is tested on my 1:10 buggy, and works fust perfect.
    Probably, tomorrow I'll finish this installation, so be prepaired

    Well, ok, here ar some pics, I made few hours ago:
    here, it's ready for paint:








    now, the only difference is, that it's black matte, pictures tomorrow, that's for today

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread

    Hi, the motor mount is set and it looks great with the motor on it. Last night i made switchable from the third chanelfront and rear lights on the front bumper and on the rear lower arms wtih fewLED's, resistors, spare bateries - 2x1.2v recharable and a servo.
    Also there is a li-pobatery holder, with 4mm duralumin again, and probably it will be replaced with 3mm, for lees weight. In total it will be ~5,7 kg, so few grams less will be good anywhere to save.
    I'll upload pics later, so stay tuned

    Hey Alex, how is your project comin? Just curious on how you mounted battery & esc. Been lookin at my Nitrage for this conversion and just tryin not to reinvent the wheel. Any pointers and pics would be appreciated.

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread

    Hi, Goat,
    well, I've got some stuff to do, but the changes to the chassis may be finished, at this point. I've made also a wheelie bar at the back, again from dural. 3 and 4 mm, few screws and some thred lock and 2 super strong axles, from CD drive (the lens are moving on them). It's matt black, and for me, the back is already finished. (it's strange, that Tamiya didn't made wheelie, but anyone can try to make one)
    Front lights aren't the brightest, but that can be changed (now using sony rechargeable 2x 1,2v 1050 mah), probably with other batteries - standart 2x 1.5V.
    here are some pic's, where you can see the changes and the wheelie:
    after few days, I'll have better camera, so the pictures also will be better.

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread

    Thanks Alex, those lights look sick. Actually, the entire project is comin along rather cool. I've already put lights in the nose of the body but I like how you placed yours on the chassis (might have to relocate mine). I have mine switched via my channel 3 button as I have a Flysky GT3C controller and powered via the onboard battery. Tks again. BTW, where did you get the boots for your axles?-Goat-

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread



    So, it's time for the next update of my project "Nitrageelectro conversion"
    Today I received my battery - TURNIGY 5.0A 20-30C Hardcase. After I got myself prepraired for the stuff I need to do, I got ouside, and began with cutting and drilling. There was little modification on the black plate for the battery - it's littleexpanded, and with another part, it's connected to the holding post near the diff, as you will see below. After that I try to make upper holder by trying few fittngs, but only one fit perfect. Again I've taken my imagenation to work, and that is what I made for a few hours work:



    Here's how it everything mounted:


    Also, I already have a servo XQ-Power 21.8 kg :


    And becouse of not well fitted body, i found a way to stop the moving of the body, on the posts:
    The front and the back:



    Thats all for now, next week I'll have charger - I-max B6, and I guess in week or thwo after that, I'll have and the last part - the ESC, wich will be 150A, becouse 120A will be on the limit of the motors spec's. Also the overall weight of the model with battry onboard isonly 4.9 kg., that seems to be good news for now.

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread



    Well, today was a BIG day, becouse, my Nitrage got it's first run ... aannddd it was the coolest thing ever !!!
    The ESC is Hobbywing 150A, with stock settings, I'll buy program card, but when it's available at my lockal RC Shop.
    I've removed the lights, from the rear, becouse there will be different positions for the different surface, so I'll reposition them soon.
    Heres the video, it's still "hot" made before 1h 15 min.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXRcOqwOSE4

    p.s. sorry for the hooked picture, but I was driving and recording at the same time, and it wasn't very easy to watch 2 things, butI guess you can see how the Electro Nitrage performs on it's first run.

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread



    Here are few actual photos of the truggy, where I installed light car system for 1:10 scale, made from hobbyking. The turn sighals, are not used, just there is no space for them and I dont nned them at least for now. I'm thinking for a proper place for the quick blinking leds, but for now they are not connected ot palced on the chasiss. Everything is placed in the box - receiver, led's contorler and the "BEC" made from 4 1.5V batteries, becouse esc's bec wasn't powerfull enough to power the servo and theΒ*light's.
    The box isn.t opened, becouse the cover was forced to close andΒ*clamped and It took me a few hours to find the optimal configuration of components inside.
    Now everything works perfect if we doesnt count one little accident this morning, when I wasn't fully awake and somehow I've pushed the trigger and the truck almost ran over me and chafed my cheekbone. After this I was already awaken I was stupid event, but that proves, that this configuration have realy giant amount of power when it climb my leg, when it was almostΒ*vertical...
    Few fresh pics of my monster truggy:






    Now I'm thinking for changing the shock's and diff's oil, but dont know what number to use, any suggestions ? Thanks

    RE: Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, The Offical Thread



    Hello everybody, my nitrage has some major improvements these days (staying almost a week dissassembled on the floor of my room) but I've put new bearings on the wheel shafts, and in the gear box from AVID . Also the middle diff is filled with oil, becouse when i opened it there was none oil left, so now there is 5000 cps, may be I'll put thicker soon



    Also i decided to put an 1:10 onroad body, just to save the original for show-off's



    The body had some cuts, but nothing serious, to change it's regular form - little cut in the front wheel arches and a bit more at the back, and cut for the wing and for the body posts, but after all, it looks pretty good in this combination. Btw, the body is bit more soft, than needed, but its not that rare like the original.



    also I've added extra stickers, just for it's sporty vision.



    And new shock oil, i bought 650 cps shock oilΒ*and 5k for the diffs, but it was like the old one - too soft, so i decided to refill the shocks with diff oil. There is a BIG difference between before and now. The chassis cant touch the ground, when it falls, from 2-3 feet.



    there is one picture of the truggy:





    the last impovement is that last two days, I was working on a skid plates at the front and at the back, new a bit longer screws and it looks realy good now. pictures will be uploadedΒ*tomorrow





    P.S. I'm sorry for the mess around the truck, but it was done at 3 a.m. and I was dying for some sleep...Here are the pictures: http://mishka1675.snimka.bg/hobby/ta...42798.30852648

    Hello, guys, last weekend, I've visit another track in the mountines near my city (about 135 km away), wich was new for me, and there was 1 realy high jump. It was awsome, to see an RC flying over 2,5 meters, over the ground, but it had its consequences over the front lower arms on my nitrage. They got a bit curvy, and one of them just broke around the 4mm pin. I couldn't find any spares left in ebay, so here is my last hope, before going to a spinner, to make them from alluminium, but this the last thing to do with this part. So, does anyone have 2 spare lower arms to sell me (contact me on PM) ??? ( if im not in violation if some rules here) please help me ...

    here are the pics, with the upgrades I've installed recently - new Frankenstein-alike body - from Kyosho and HPI, wich happened to be like a wagon, and looks pretty cool, atleast for me. New position of the battery, for better weight distribution, new bumpers, from Thunder Tiger's MTA monster, with installed LED's, who soon will be lighted up, for a test-drive.
    4 Kyosho 6mm offset hexes 17mm and 4 HPI Dirt Bonz wheels, with realy good traction on asphalt and dirt.
    Here, you can take a look, also I had a chance to drive in snow, in the 2 days, we had snow around here, but it was unstoppable :

    Nice looking car there Alex. I am pleased I still have my two Nitrages. Although they are all original with the 5.2 nitro engines, they still run great and I have absolutely lots and lots of spares and two brand new Tamiya 5.2 engines for spares, so I will still be running these in many more years to come. However most of my time these days is spent with my 1/5 scale gas powered HPI Baja 5b....lots of noise and speed. The nitro smoke still smells damn good though !!

    Guys

    Like coalminer not been here in ages but pulled out my Nitrage and all my other cars out the past week. My Nitrage Air Filter requires replacement due to turned into mush. Can't find Tamiya Air Filters, P/N: 41064. Anyone suggest an alternative that will fit the filter housing? Pretty dirty from the last run and the carb slider still looks shiny so hope she starts and runs ok.

    The beginning of this week have played with my Losi Ten-T, HPI Savage XL and this afternoon have got the Traxxas Revo 3.3 ready for a spin. Unfortunately the weekend is coming up which means quality time with the wife. Next week looks like rainy weather here so there won't be much chance to take the 5.2 out. That will give me time to do a little overhaul on first purchase in this line of nitro trucks. Tyres were bald but luckily I bought an extra set way back. Hope I can save the rims. Pulled most of the rubber off the grooves so will give it the hot water treatment.

    Can't wait to hear that 5.2 engine and JP-4 tune sing again!
