Re: lets see those rc cars

Waiting for someone to ask me about this mod to the gear box.

Using a hollow Tamiya spacer tube and a few washers and an Allen cap screw, this mod is made possible to clamp the gearbox from ballooning under load. It’s the number one killer of the Frog, Brat, Blackfoot and Monster Beetle’s gear train design.

Re: lets see those rc cars

Rebuilding the Revo’s transmission today. I had a buddy with some better engineering skills than me lock 2nd gear so I can get reverse back. So far things are going well, a lot of dirt built up and grease deposits everywhere but a good cleaning and well placed lubricant should make this thing better.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/240323/505fec43-68d0-4a12-a888-afc40aa055f660280b106a.jpeg

Re: lets see those rc cars

Sweet, I had to do the same thing on my old nitro-powered T-Maxx locking out second. got a big old box of aluminum goodies for my super baja rey, just had a chance to test it out and it handles smooth as butter. 44lbs now she may need to go on a diet!https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/270850/img_20210211_153043825602849557f.jpg

Re: lets see those rc cars

Picked this up today at an estate sale didn’t get them cheap but thought they were cool. Not sure on the models on the 2 buggies but anyone got info on any of these? May be on the chopping block soon so any info would be great. Thanks

Re: lets see those rc cars

the top one is a Marui Hunter from 1984.

Next is a Tamiya Rough Rider, their first buggy. Made in 1979. It is very much based on VW beetle racing buggies and Tamiya actually ripped off Rob Maynard racing for the stylings.

Then a Kyosho from 1980, Circuit 20 1/8 scale nitro buggy.

Some cool stuff.

Cool, but why? I just don't get the large scale R/C stuff. At that point I think I'd rather have something I can actually sit in. The biggest scale I have owned was a 1/8 scale buggy, 5th scale looks awesome if you have the place. I watched a 1/4 scale (I think) on road and all I thought was you could have a go cart for that price. Jut my opinion anyhow.

I can see how scale can play in the overall aesthetic.

Re: lets see those rc cars

Lotta awesome scale stuff simply needs to be larger in size to fit all the pieces to make the thing functional.

Turbine engined choppers and jets, etc.....
Lots of cool ships and construction vehicles out there too.

Re: lets see those rc cars

Used to race them when I was a kid. Did have a fling again about 8 years ago though. I had a Schumacher Cougar KR.

I also had a Kyosho Sand Master for running on the beach. No way I was going to wreck a carbon Schumacher doing that.

Re: lets see those rc cars

That's not that big. That's still completely reasonable IMO. The Big on road ones I watched were 4 times that size.
