    Yeah...I invested in a nice bit a while ago to drill through some hardened gears in a differential, but that didn't work out so well. Then I decided to go the adventurous road: heated up the shaft to...

    RE: Custom 1/5 Onroader Build!

    Thanks. Were you thinking of something like this for the shaft front to back? I found a long shaft makes it easy to attach extra "things" on there like brake disks, sprockets etc.

    RE: Custom 1/5 Onroader Build!

    As a few have said, you should be ok with 3 mm plate with some bracing. The car I have has dual ~3.5 mm plates with bracing between them and it's solid. Car weighs 22 or so pounds. It also has diffs...

    Love the work. So excited to see more!

    Bob, for your tensioners, were you not able to use a standard low tooth sprocket (with hub + bearing), or was the pulley simply easier/quicker to obtain...

    RE: wiper servo

    Since the wiper motor is probably much more capable than a small servo motor, I'd say the limiting factor for holding power is the ESC. Until it burns out, you'd get as much current as it can supply....

    The pot you are talking about is there to tell the circuit board where the servo is positioned. Based on the current position, the circuit board tells the motor to spin one way or the other when you...

    Hey Frederik, looks like things are coming along well over there.

    RE: Another large scale Impreza project

    Hmm, I was not familiar with your carb, but it seems similar to this one. Since it appears to have a diaphram reservoir with prime bulb, you shouldn't have problems with the gas tank afterall.

    Great job, super CAD illustrations. This looks like it will be loads of fun to drive.

    Is your engine a 37 or 47 cc? I have a similar one (47 cc) on a custom built project as well. Any thoughts...
