Looking great, that motor looks so good now its detailed nicely!
Thank you!!So good. What a cool project!
Thank you!!! Yes, exact ID as the OD of the Tamiya spindles. And yes, I haven't tightened everything up yet, the spring eye mounts will be tightened so as to limit the lateral movement.Awesome! :lol: Nice color scheme too, and very cool the wheels fit directly! So they have same hole diameter as regular bearing-in-wheel wheels? Like lots of Tamiya 2WD front wheels? (I don't know if they are the same as semi front axles)
A question about the front suspension, in this type of setup, what is locating the axle laterally? Are the swing arm bolts tight on the axle? It seems like the leaf could prevent lateral movement some, when the leaf is not the same length as the axle attachments?
Very nice creation, keep it going please! :)
Thank you!! My first design was to run the drag link connection from the casket to the front steering knuckle but it would have been over 10" long. I was going to add a mid support but once I mocked up the micro servo up front it just simplified and made the install a lot cleaner.That's looking really good!
One minor gripe might let you clean up the front end a little. With a Model T instead of the now common chassis mount steering box, the steering was handled with a lever sticking out of the cowl that moved fwd/aft. Then a long rod, running near the axle suspension 'batwings' , connects it to the inboard side of the steering knuckle.
Appreciate that!!! Thank you!!what a funny creation but what a serious amazing build Joe!
i'm impressed by your rc workshop too!
Was surprised myself that they came out uniform! Thanks!Very nice! I like how the headers looks like a pipe organ
Good info, didn't know this. I will have video, weather is so crappy here. Thanks!!!!I really like your variation on the theme Dragula. I was just watching a Youtube video about the model designs of Tom Daniels who designed the Red Baron and many other Monogram kits - basically saved the company from the post slot car slump. He was the designer of both the Munster's Hearse and Dragula though he was never given much credit for it. It seems George Barris got the notoriety for them, but Daniel did the sketches that became the cars. Barris didn't even build them - that was farmed out to somebody else. Great build! Now....when do we see the run videos???
