Default Electronics for a 1/8 or 1/6 scale Tank?

Hi All, I had a good diagram/schematic of a possible electronics package for a 1/8 or 1/6 scale tank using Tamiya and Sabertooth sound and motor controls, but lost it. I put this together from memory and wanted some of the electronic wizards to look at it and see if it is viable or will I see a lot of smoke being let out of the parts? Thanks in advance for your advice on this. Rudy

Looks OK, you are paralleling the electronics and I don't see an issue,.

I question why you are using the Tamiya electronics in this case? You are using them just for the sound?

Sound, control and IR. I was really hoping the Clark TK 60 would be out as I think it would be a better choice? I really want to see this 1/8 scale Tiger II of mine rolling with some sound and full option action. Could add a mini ts bendini to it as well, right?

The Benedinni would be the way to go as far as sound and yes Dan knows a way to use it with the Tamiya MFU and TBU systems.

You will loose damage when bypass the MFU as a speed control

Yes BARC/TBS would be less expensive and give you better sound

You could use the ElMod Fusion with the sabertooth and benedini for sound if you like it. The controls and ability to adjust all the fine tuning is unbeatable.

Yes that is a good way to go also and Joe would be able to get you through the entire process. Either way would be good options. The BARC/Benedinni or the ElMod/Benedinni. But Benedinni no matter what.
