Hello ...

I screwed the bumper steel directly after the body .. But I reinforced the point where it is anchored.





It's pretty solid.

These large 1 / 6 are very well to changes.

And on the rock, they climb very well.

Their engine and transmission need not be changed.



Bye

Texx,
I'm looking for some lower gear sets for my NB1/ th. I've been to two big hobby shops and they haven't had the gears or can't find them without me giving them a model of RC they came out of. Can anyone tell me a part number for the gear packs or the model of RC they were actually for that you used to put lower gears in your New Bright crawler. 
 
Any help is greatly appreciated. My 6 year old loves his New Bright and I've done some of the simple suspension mods and fender trimming, but it needs better crawling capabilites.

THANKS!!!

Hello...Vader5

Cobra ... a member of this forum has already given some models of 4 th gears ..

See below. All ratios are shown.

YELLOW-CRAWLER has a 4 th gear 34 X 10 = 184 / 1

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBzuNlozLk4[/youtube]

You can find them in old models of rc found in flea markets.

The installation of the 4 th gears should not be difficult.

good luck[8D]


COBRA69 said ....

I have used different size compound gears for the 4th gear mod with good results,the only thing that changes is your final drive ratio.

46x10 10t pinion=199 to 1

46x10 ((( 8t pinion )))=248to1

42x14 10t pinion=130 to1

42x14 ((( 8t pinion )))=162 to 1

56x10 10t pinion=242 to 1

56x10 ((( 8t pinion )))=302 to 1

Hope this helps a little ......

in your opinion are these easier to modify than my nylint 1/6 scale crawler? How does it perform by comparison?

I may just go get one and find out for myself, lol
