Default Another Got_to_100 Production (GTP Video)

I know I havent been in these threads in a while since I got into the giant scales but there was always a project that I had that some might remember. Its the twin engine GTP. Well, Im proud to say that its finally fully done and ready. Here are some vids we shot last night of it running. Enjoy.

Pro, I didnt want to go with anything less and fail. If Id failed with those 2, then I know it just wasnt going to happen but to have failed with something that I knew was less, that would have had me trying again and again.

Well, the chassis was a custom fab. Started with a sheet of alum and placed everything on it and started cutting and drilling. The tranny is also custom. It has a steel 34 spur with custom 31 pinions. The motors are non modded RB928s with JP4 pipes. And the linkages were a pain in the BLANK to get right. That took almost as long to get right as the entire build did.

Yeah, the problem was that the throttle servo was mounted in a way that the brake had to work. Cant go fast without having to stop, so the brake was a priority. Then we had to figure out the throttle. Since the motors are so close together, the linkages were the issue because one motor would open up sooner then the other and when that happened, since the one that opened up first was trying to pull so much gearing, it would actually heat up the clutch shoes and burn them up. I was exaggerating a bit when I said it took so long but it honestly took a total of about 10 hours to figure and get the linkages right.

Yes u definatly had plenty of power and then some on that car with those 928s. I have at least 6 gallons on mines, and its still running strong. I wish i could find another one for another car im getting in the future.

One problem that we found with this car that we've come to the conclusion is that the gear rides on a bushing and not a bearing. Im not sure if its when the bushing gets hot or if its just not centered and its causing the gear to wobble but I know for sure that when the bearing gets hot, it melts slightly off the gear and it causes it to wobble which causes it to strip.
