g'day peeps ....
after my kart project all finished
PROJECT: Nitro kart ..... turnigy ... :D
Needed another project to go on with to keep me busy .. so, got alot of my left over parts together to make up a truck with a live rear end and four link .. That was version 1.... made out of a old himoto 1/10 truck ... well it worked so well that i bought a roller 1/10 car off ebay to transfer the rear end into, as well as make it more drag looking and tidy it all up best i could .. i changed the rear shock mounting points giving it a whole new look ,it should work alot better .. still yet to drive it , waiting for the winter weather to come good ..
parts used ..
gv 1/10 onroad car .
wheelyking live rear end with full spool.
alloy axial crawler tail shaft.
modded .28 engine.
also tossing up to just use the old bodies i have .. the wheel base being long does not make it easy to get bodies .. got a ford xr8 felcon ute body on now .. as well as a ford drag sedan body .. needs triming tho.. at the end of the day i wanted a drag style car that will also kinda turn corners and drive around as well ... .
still working out what rear tyres to run yet .. they are just some old xxxnt losi road tires i had . need something that will grip a little bit ,but slip enough to not blow all the drive train .. its a hard one ...
hanging to drive it .. in version one form it was faster than my TECHNOPOWER .23 carbon mugen 1/8 buggy once it got off the line .. this car is i gear'd to the hills .. 18 or 19tooth bell on it ..
