Default Ford F-150 1/6 Scale

Hi to you all, Need Some Help

I have a <u>New Bright Ford F-150 1/6 scale on 9.6v</u>, the problem im having is firstly the truck is weak, so i mean that if it was to climb a 30cm high rampor a small hill, it wouldn't do it and get stuck and rollback down even on fresh batteries, secondly the steering is absolutely ridiculous,

Anyone that has a tip and knows any cure to fix this problem please tell me about it, thanks to all your help......

Here are some pictures of the truck; <u>New Bright 9.6v Ford F-150 1.6 Scale</u> &gt;&gt;&gt;Yes not the best truck but i need some help on it&lt;&lt;&lt;

HELLO. rc2009 .. Welcome on the forum ..

..WOW ..[X(] Greast truck ..

If you have any pics of the mechanics, we could make a small idea ..[sm=thumbup.gif]

This model is surely made for speed, not to climb the rock ..
You say that the servo direction is not very powerful ..

You could install a servo quality (GRADE-HOBBY) (20.00) AND KEEP ELECTRIC PANEL STOCK ..



I have already installed a servo HG on my LAND-ROVER 1 / 6 NEWBRIGHT ..
Old ..


To make it more powerful, lowered the pinion, some tooth, this would improve its performance ..

But,this operation will slow down the truck, somewhat ..[]

You can also install a complete kit ESC, ($ 100.00) which includes the servo HG ..

My kit ... FUTABA ..



Same BIG-CRAWLER ..
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXASX4**&P=7

This kit would give more power to your truck ..

And, you can install the oil shock. For best performance ..[sm=thumbup.gif]

well,this trucks servo is not the one you have in the pic, its connected to a circuit board with 4 wires, and two wires to the battey, so i dont think i can change it, but here is a pic

However, the servo of my Land Rover, has 6 wire .. and installation of a servo HG, was a success ..

It worked very well with the stock electronics .. See pic ..



You need to connect the six wire for a proper functioning ..

If you go with the ESC, the servo is connected directly to the receiver ..

If you keep the stock electronics, you need to open the new servo, remove the electronics plate, and put the wire in the right place ..

On LAND ROVER, there were four wire to the control panel, and 2 wire for power (battery)

old servo LAND ROVER ..



Do not cut your wire on the panel .. just on the stock servo .. if you change this stock servo.

PS ..

I leave you tonight, consider these servos, and I will return tomorrow ..[8D][8D]

sorry, this is a stupid question but i didnt really get you, so basically for the steering servo can i purchase this item for example:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-PCS-Futaba-S3003-Standard-Servo-for-RC-Car-Boat-Plane_W0QQitemZ280362587245QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_T oysGames_RadioControlled_JN?hash=item4146e9946d&am p;_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&amp;_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A 2|39%3A1|72%3A1683|240%3A1318|301%3A0|293%3A1|294% 3A50

And how do i connect it to the circuit board and how to i do it,

original servo has 6 wires in total, and other servos have 3 in total?

Yes .. This servo is OK ..

But,this servo I installed in my LAND ROVER ..



http://images.google.fr/imgres?imgur...G1E6bUlQeJ5rAo

The location of the wire is shown in this shema ..

New servo (1)..


New servo (2).. on LAND ROVER .. 6 WIRE


PS ..

On this shema, the green wire ( motor ground solder on the case of motor ), was stretched by a blue ..
SORRY []

##################################################

((( If you keep the stock electronics, you need to open the new servo, remove the electronics plate( new servo (1)), and put the wire in the right place ..

FOR THE MOTOR = + red and -black, directly to the motor .. (=batteryPOWER)

the green goes directly to the case of motor .. ( for ground )..( solder )

Yellow-red-black, directly to small potentiometer ..

################################################## ###############

Consider the shema ..

1=The white and green wire on your pic, .....



... are those that are welded on top of the motor .. =(power)

2=One of the four other wire is welded to the motor case (on the side of the case) .. ( motor ground case ) GREEN on my pic .. new servo (1)

3=The three other wire is welded on the three wire, under the electrical panel (which was removed) the servo. ( center return )


#########################################

TEST on LAND ROVER .. HG servo .. 6 wire ..

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wfashueGsg[/youtube]

The servo automatically returns to the center [8D]

YES..
For rc-toys, endurance is limited ..

Installed motor too powerful, often brings problems ..[]

Thanks to all of you, i managed to get a a higher battery on it and now its about 2-3x faster in speed, but my only problem is the steering, the servo for steering i think its broken as its still weak , so as you guys helped on the last problem please do give me tips on this one....

The other problem is that this truck has a circuit board inside and the servo is connected to the board with 4 wires, normal servos have 3 wires only: so will this work or not

heres a pic:

You have on your truck,

4 wire that go to the panel ..

and 2 wire (white.. green) for power .. total, 6 wire ..

Similar to my LAND ROVER ..

three wire, go to the motor,

and three wire will be soldered to the three other new servo wire in the small panel (which was removed) ..

you should cut the four wire to exit the stock servo for your truck ..

2=One of the four other wire is welded to the motor case (on the side of the case) .. ( motor ground case ) GREEN on my pic .. new servo (1)

By keeping your stock electronics, the return to center, will be done automatically (with a servo HG) in the six wire welding in the right place ..


New servo HG (1)..


So .. three wire for the motor/power (white.. green on top of the motor
and a black wire .. one of the four wire (black if possible) that go to the stock panel ,welding of the motor case for ground ..

and three other .. wire

(for the automatic return to center)

on the three small pieces of wire in the new servo , above the small potentiometer ..

(((( So, three wire on the motor, and three wire, on the the small potentiometer ..))))

#######################################

PS ..

You must do this work, or installed an ESC .. By installing an ESC you remove your stock servo, and your stock electrical panel ..[8D]

Wow......................i never knew this existed, my name is Rebuilder due to the fact that i do just that..........rebuild toys, i would like to post a few if you guys dont mind, i have many Hobby grade as well but in all honesty i get more out of the toy upgrade builds.

Here are a few, I hope you dont mind me showing them here............

The 1/6 Nikko F-150:

This one started as a 1/6 scale Nikko Harley truck, out came all the working innards and in went a Futaba 3010 servo, futaba receiver, duratrax sprint 7 cell ESC, and an integy 35t modified motor. Also added aluminum threaded shocks and slightly stretched 6" HPI's over the stock rims(which i like). I painted it to match my 45" Dumas triple outboard which it will be pulling, and added my signature "bedliner", textured spraypaint with a coat of flat black over it. I added led lights, the turn signals, and the roll bar, bumpers are a diamond chrome look. I know its not a basher and dont intend on using it like that, but its fun to cruise around the neighborhood and over a few hills. Its actually got pretty good power, real good acceleration, but the body lift i gave it makes it kinda top heavy, Anyways, their fun for me, i got a couple others too. Thanks for looking

On the Jeep:

I bought this new in 1996, and its been sitting in the garage collecting dust for 12 years. I got it down, cleaned it all up, took the body down to the base plastic, primed, alot of sanding, and 3 coats of cherry red. I painted the stock rims with a three piece look, it has the stock tires, and i added the blue anaodized shocks and gave it about a half inch lift. I custom made the soft top for it with clear rear window and added the running lights off of another nikko i had, the taillights are additions too. I run it on 7 cells which powers the 55t novack nicely. And of course "i know its not a basher" , but ive done quite a few of these builds and get alot of enjoyment from them, i do a little cruisin around my property with them.

HI ,

Great stuffs here! I also have two 1/6 scale New Bright trucks, one is the Dodge Ram 9.6V 2WD 2007, and the other one is the Ford F150 2004 9.6V 2WD. I'm trying to get the Dodge to go faster so first I got a 9.6V NIMH 1800mah battery instead of the 9.6V NICD 600mah and next step I would try to pu in a more powerful motor 380 as I am limited by the housing and wheel space soas the original motor does not show any number of anykind I'm not sure about it's real power then. Iwas thinking about the GWS EM 400electric motor and change the original 9 tooth pinion for something like12.
What do you guys think? As per the Ford Igot it from a neighbor and so far it's dead..onlty the sound comes on and nothing else??.. Anyidea onthis one as well?

Thanks lot!

Although this is a DEAD thread jean, i'll put in my 2 cents about the motor. But, for better responses, you should make a new thread.<div>
</div><div>1st off ; the GWS motors are for RC planes</div><div>2;  Here is your 12 tooth pinion; http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...LXRAJ5&amp;P=7 </div><div>3. motor; Are looking to crawl or make it go faster? If faster, look at choice A. If crawler, look at choice B.</div><div>
</div><div>
</div><div>A; You would need a completely new ESC, like so; http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...XAMN7&amp;P=ML   and motot</div><div>motor; http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...LXLYA6&amp;P=7  P.S, soldering would be needed to get it to stay. The connectors for ESC and motor are not the same.</div><div>
</div><div>
</div><div>B; The current board would be ok, and the motor is here; http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...LXVDV1&amp;P=7 </div><div>
</div><div>Good luck!</div>
