If the gears are anything like those that Tamiya puts in its cars, I very much doubt that steel gears are necessary. They’re not Heng Long plastic, so to say. Added bonus of plastic gears is the noise, or rather lack of it.. more sound from speaker, instead of loudly rattling metal gears.

Afa the tracks go, the DKLM tracks with the separate rubber pads are a LOT of work to assemble, and are a bit too ‘realistic’ for my taste, in, that they spit and split rubber pads like a real tank.. .. I use the plastic/metal hybrid tracks from Tamiya on the Heng Long Challenger, the Leopard and the M1, and have yet to break one, even with crazy powerful DKLM double gearboxes with huge twin 550 motors.

by the by, check rctankwarfare.co.uk if You réally want to go ‘off the deep end’ with modeling and detailing the M1

I bought the pre-assembled tracks so the rubber pads were already installed and they worked great. I didn't have the tank long before it got sold, but I never had any trouble with pads coming off, and the guy I sold it to hasn't had that problem, either. They're more money for pre-assembled (I paid $135 for mine) but the price has come down just bit. But you should definitely shop around, and if you have to, contact the seller to make sure they're pre-assembled and not the kit.

I think I got mine from toucan hobby, but my purchase history doesn't go back that far so I can't tell for sure.The above link is for toucan hobby, and they have a pretty good rep in the hobby community.

And watch out for leo tracks, which only have the rubber pad on one side. On the Abrams you want the rubber pads on both sides of the tracks, so make sure it doesn't say "single" rubber pad, for leo and chally.

That photo shows the tracks that you don't want. The Abrams had rubber pads on the inside of the track as well as the outside.

Forum Server spam monitoring tool ( Barracuda oder so etwas) sieht da ‘ne IP-adresse das von irgendwo anders kommt als er erwartet. Plopp! Dicht gehr er.. Bericht zu Mod “ blabla adresse vielleicht spoof für nährende DDOS attack” oder ein andere Panik-Meldung... Vielleicht neuregistrierung via ein dummer Hotmail account wird funktionieren? Dàs wird durch die Hub in Hamburg ( glaube Ich, nicht sicher) gehen, und soll als ‘ Legitim’ gesehen werden. Nur ein Tipp.

And if the mods work with standard tools, and are not super into TCP/IP details. ( or use a cheap a## hosting corp without any rèal intricate knowledge) . “banned You are” Good luck trying to protest it.. from Your ‘flagged’ IP.

Sorry i forget to mention you did a good job you will see all areas turn white with ruff texture , suggestIon is getting a large soft brush gently remove excess


I did this as demo probably a better way
now that is anti slip ☝️👍
