  1. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Could be a stripped spur gear, bad gear-mesh, snapped or loose drive chains, stripped drive sprockets (thatthe chains run around), or like you say; a blown diff. Unless you strip it down, impossible...
  2. RE: Help to find components for a hovercraft

    You can buy ready-made ducted fan units off a lot of RC sites; something like this - http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=21491

    You won't necessarily need the two additional motors...

    RE: nitro blizzard

    Not a problem. You may find that it might not engage properly occasionally (very rare though), but at least it doesn't strip any of the pins by trying to engage at high revs.

    RE: nitro blizzard

    I had similar problems with mine; I solved it by ditching the mechanism and having a 3rd servo to seperate the forward/reverse changing duties from the throttle.  Pictures on page 71 of the other...

  6. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    It may be much, much later than the 80's; only with the newest Blizzard SR have they gone back to the twin motor system.  I bought my Nitro Blizzard in 2004/2005 and the electric version (Blizzard...
  7. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Definitely a Blizzard; although the Unimog body isn't original I don't think.  If you show us what the transmission is under the shell we'll have a better idea...

    Schumacher Manic brushless conversion

    Hi guys, I'd like some advice please on a conversion that I'm planning; I intend to convert my Manic from its twin .36 to a brushless system. I've just done a brushless conversion on a nitro Kyosho...

    RE: Schumacher's Newest Rc - Manic

    Thanks guys.  I completely forgot about measuring the shaft diameter; massive brain-fart.  I'll contact Schumacher only if I start to struggle; I dont like the rear motor placement on the concept...

    RE: Schumacher's Newest Rc - Manic

    Hi guys; after a bit of advice.  I'm planning on doing a LiPo Brushless conversion on my Manic, I have just done a similar conversion on my Kyosho Blizzard, but obviously a 4wd monster is going to...
  12. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    I've got everything set in the chassis where I want it now, the last thing I need to buy for it is a suitable motor pinion.  How do I work out how many teeth I should be running?  I have a 3030kV...
  13. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Ok, so I've got all the parts now to do the conversion but I have a couple of questions; due to lack of space on the top plate, can I mount the ESC on the underside of it?  Does this mean it will not...
  14. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Thank you very much for that Barney!  I've ordered the part now, what with it being Sunday I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if they are ok with shipping to the UK.  If they are not,...
  15. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    I used M3 x 25mm bolts to add the new brake pads on my mod.  They are only slightly longer than the stock ones but they are all that you need to accommodate wider pads.  I didn't use the MP777 pads...

    RE: 57cc Twin cylinder with Beetle exo cage

    Your build looks absolutely brilliant mate.

    Speaking of home-made cages, I've not seen Stiggwelder churning out any for a while now on here, does anyone know if he is still active?
  18. RE: smartech 1:5 scale gas truck - problem starting

    The wheels moving in opposite directions if you spin them whilst the truck is off the floor is perfectly normal; this is caused by the gearing in the differential.  It will be more noticable though...

  20. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Actually, don't worry about it, I think I've got my head around how batteries should be chosen for an ESC; if the Ah rating of the battery is lower than the ESC, you damage the battery right?

    What...
  21. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Thanks.  My basic understanding of motors it the higher the turn, the better the torque, but the lower the top speed and power consumption.  Is this right?

    I don't understand this bit of what you...
  22. RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Thanks for the info mate; looking on e-Bay though, there are 25A,35A and 60A versions, please can you tell me which one you are running? Also, can you tell me what turn motor you are running and what...

    RE: Insane 1/5 scales with Big Blocks in them!!

    If you're getting an FG on-road and you're on unlimited budget from your lady, why don't you try out the big BZM...? ;)

    Brilliant mate; thanks for the advice, I'll get some M5 long bolts or thread.  No; I'd heard that you could get studs that were like grub screws, that could be installed (and removed if needed) with...
