Default Electric LST Project: Pics.

I just completed the tenative form for my Electric Conversion LST-Maxx project. I posted this over in the Electric Forum too, so If you have already seen it I apologize. I just thought you guys might enjoy a look at it too.

Check out the project pictures and commentary on my website:

I'm going to try to get a video of it in a few days.

I'm sorry, but are you only using one steering servo?[X(]

Otherwise looks very nice!

Lol, yep I was trying to keep that quiet

Only 1 steering servo right now. As long as she's rolling, it works perfectly (it's a little lighter than the nitro engine, fuel, exhaust, and heavier transmission) so it works good for now.

I'm going to add a second 590m servo to match the first when I get a better mounting situation for the 2-Speed Gear Shift Servo.

I think a little bit of coaxing might get the shift servo next to the reciver, but we'll see. Hope you enjoyed the pics.

Why not just upgrade the 1 steering servo with something much better than a 590?

Yeah, I'll shoot some more pics tommorow.

Remember, it's still a work in progress, but the three runs I made today confirm that it works pretty well. 2nd Gear really gets her rolling, enough to lift it up on 2 wheels around a corner and throw the tail out in loose terrain.
1st is great for climbing up rocks and in my case yard bricking (heh, only thing to test it on). I need to tighten the slipper a bit to make it more punchy overall, but I don't want to put to much stress on the Transmission, as the LST is a heavier vehicle.

@Mikewoodkozar
Batteries are strapped in behind the rear shock tower right now. I want to mount them on either side of the motor, using velcro straps, but I haven't gotten to the hardware store yet.

Some new images of the battery mounts, transmission mounts, and other shots of the Electric LST have been posted at my site.

I took some video, but holding the camera and steering didn't bode to well for the truck. I'm going to try and get one of my buddies to film.

Sweet, I like the top tray. Didn't even know anyone else had tried to convert one before.

Nevertheless, nice work.

Check out the updated pics on the site. I just installed the new brushless motor system... What a difference in speed an acceleration.

Posted a video of the Truck in action on my website. Quality is low, but you finally get to see it rolling.

The video is pre-brushless installation, and I couldn't drive and film when I had the truck at fullspeed. Oh well, when I get a camera man, I'll try again.

It's about 9.75mb so it could take a minute to download. You can right click, save-as if you like.
