RE: 50cc throttle problem

One of these should do the trick:

RE: Drilling hardened steel axle?

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...

Yeah the older EVXs are barely enough to push the Maxxes around! They've been relegated to use in 1/10 scale like stampedes and such for me now...

Which motor are you popping...

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.

To mount the...

RE: New Project

Hey DVP, I hope you're planning on using a dedicated charger for lithium chemistry batteries! I've got quite a few of those lying around as well but have never used them. I felt the need for a...

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...

RE: Bob Stormer, scratch built Monster Project.

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....

RE: wiper servo

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...

RE: Another large scale Impreza project

Can't say I'm too familiar with the other brands, but I've heard of others using Hitec, Futaba and JR radio systems as well. Someone might be able to chime in with a suggestion for cost-benefit...

RE: Another large scale Impreza project

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

For servos, a relatively inexpensive choice is the Hitec 805BB servos. I've got a single one to steer my large scale (20+...

RE: Another large scale Impreza project

Nice find Frederik.

I have two engines over here, one on my project, and one waiting to be used. The engine cylinder looks like a cross between the two in the pic - I would say make the...

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.

Yeah, the tank pressure can be increased with a hose...you might have seen a pic from my build or someone else's, lol. I wasn't satisfied, however, because of the oily pressure line and inconsistent...

RE: Another large scale Impreza project

Nice real car too!

For the pipe, if you have a tube bender it would be quite easy to fab a curved section that goes above the engine, leading to an expansion chamber...which can be "salvaged"...

RE: Another large scale Impreza project

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...

Not sure if you're using the same slide carb as in the above pic but I found an upgrade with more tuning was definitely helpful in my...

RE: Custom built car: Mini-mo

Wan, I'll try to get a pic of the 15T; the 6T is in the pic above beside the 9T on the clutch (added).</p>

The 15T is too small for a pocket bike but it is good for the RC taking into account the...

RE: Custom built car: Mini-mo

Thanks guys. It does go relatively fast, and quite quickly. I find it has loads of torque, almost too much!

Some of the parts in the car are:

That looks sweet - good job! Next time I decide cutting the grass is getting to be too much work, I'll look into this ;)

RE: Homemade 1/4 scale Replica of Baja.

Looks like you should have all the stopping power you need. I get the impression that a tubular frame would look more realistic and would weigh less. If you're interested in seeing what that kind of...

Custom built car: Mini-mo

Hey everyone, I just wanted to show what Mini-mo has been up to...I had the chance to get a vid of a few asphalt runs, including a rollover and losing a wheel, lol.
