I've run it in a parking lot a number of times with a 1700 mah pack. Hopefully this year I'll get to run it with the 3600 pack you see in the pic. It weighs 64 oz(1815 grams). The chassis is .093 G-10. The rear diff/axel was made extra long by IRS. The rear shocks are AE long 1/10 buggy. I did try running it with a Nemisis "540" 6T and a Schulze 18.61K(8 cells), but the Schulze kept thermaling. The 6T is now sitting on the shelf as I don't have a speed control with enough current capacity for it. The car runs pretty well with the AFI 4T(4000 KV) and Novak 410 speed control. Don

Hey DLS II, this is a great thread you had started. Can you tell me what front end is on the 1/8 scale electric?

It's from one of AE's first 1/8 gas cars-RC300( pan car). I had it machined to accept springs. Don

Hi RCcartips,
Did you convert your M04M to L? or even longer? how did you do that? what is the final wheelbase? because M04L is only 239mm wheelbase w/c is still too short for a standard 190mm TC body (and too narrow) Is the Toyota Trueno Body a standard 190mm Touring Car Body?

Some tips pls. as I plan to do a similar project. BTW what make is your Trueno body? where you bought it?

thanks

Default Trueno

Hi TOJ,

The body is not 190mm touring car, notice the width is exact to the width of an M04 chassis. It is also not lexan,,, it it a JADA body, more like toy plastic... but very detailed...

Wheelbase is the tricky part... it is an M04L length minus 7mm... so I had to do some spacers in the rear arms to shorten wheelbase a bit...

(i have on my 1/16th ) at the moment i'm on my way to rebuilding an old 1/14th tc i have, as it has a really low centre of gravity (the cells are right at the bottom), although it has to be powered by AA cells (no problem when you can get 2500mah nimh's for 50p each .
Hey,
What do you mean by the steering needs to be laser cut? Also have you got any pics of the 1/16th or the 1/14th as I wouldn't mind seeing them.
Thanks, Paul

Now this car I like. The body and wheels couldn't look any better! By the way did it sell on eBay?
