The initial engine break-in was quite fun and the first video was about that.

2-stroke engines (as most of you know) require severe amont of extra oil in gasoline for the break-in period. Full-blooded racing engines like this one require even more and you need to run it obscenely rich and try to keep it alive with variable low rpms as I did, the over-rich mixture keeps trying to kill the plug constantly. I had a tachometer attached to the engine and max rpm recorded was 6150. So 10.000rpms to add up

When a 2-stroke engine is leaned out for max performance vs. durability then and only then will they REALLY start screaming. I'm used to these engines and can assure you that YOU HAVENT HEARD NOTHIN' YET

JariV, as everyone has stated, that is excellent ingenuity. I can only hope that you break the engine in quick and finish up the car so we can see it go for a spin. Amazing...

Jari, have you built any other big RC cars like this or is this the first one?
Can't remember if this was mentioned in the other thread.

Thanks

I haven't done anything like this size before.

I've played around with 1/8 scale buggies and truggies and naturally 1:1 real cars a lot. Hotrods, road racing cars, drag cars and so on.

One special rc build that I did before this Baja was a Hobao (in the States the brand is OFNA) Hyper ST 1/8 truggy. I modified it and fitted a rare O.S. originally supercharged 20cc (1,2 cu.in.) fourstroke engine. Made custom engine mounts and a clutch myself. That was a fun car but a collector bought it from me.

Here's something about that one:









Driving the Hobao, turn the volume up

Wow, it sound so deep - gotta love the four-srokers. That project must have required so much careful planning for weight distribution...any idea the power the OS engine was putting out?

Thanks guys.

Wan6176; it uses a separate portable electric 12V starter.

Da mad maori; No secluded oil in 4-stroke glowfuel engine. Those engines have a feedline from intake to crankcase and utilize glowfuel lubrication.

Now I'm a little surprised. You are like the tenth person to ask me to make a copy of it.

A word of warning here; only the material that needs to be bought for such buildup will be in the range of 5500 Eur. Plus it takes about 3 months to build. So we would be talking about over 10k. And if one would want for instance real live telemetry or some other extra things in then all that would be additional. So we are talking about prices that would be horrendous for an rc.

Jariv in singapore i got hold on to the tomegawa servo ss050,but didnt ask the price yet told the shop owner reserve for me hehehhe i'll be back for it
why do you need 2 servo for steering?isnt 1 of the tonegawa servo is powerful enuff to steer the monster tyre?
btw are u using dunlop kt11 or kt 10 on the tyre size? it looks ur using kt10,bt bigand easy got kt11.

KT10s are the ones I'm using.

Trust me; even if the PS050 is powerful then when you have a proper geometry in place then one is not enough. For instance the front hub has a lot of things to take into consideration so that bump steer does not happen. Study steering geometries and designs carefully. Normal size car car geometry is way too tame for these. 1/8 buggies are a good starting point. 2WD if you are making a 2WD and 4WD equivalently.

Final engine break in with over-rich mixture.
