My Junk

#41
Thanks man. I guess the sayin holds true. Learn from mistakes. Shoulda painted the thing from the inside out. I forgot about that old trick from back in the day. O well. It's Orange as a mo fugga now. Think I am going to paint half of the doors black and the flares. And prob do something for the headlights, taillights, grille, etc.

I wish i would have had better internet and seen this thread, i could of gotten those parts from brooks for ya and dropped off on my way home from charleston today.

Looks like me and JR are the only ones that don't have an RC. Jim probably has something somewhere, but he has that barbie jeep too.

Looks good! I like the doved bronco body! I have some side post mounts laying around that came off of my ax10 if you want them
Yeah. I rigged somethin up but some legit mounts would be nice. Hell it's on there. More than I have ever had. Lol. I'm ready to see what this thing will do

Getcha one Steve. I have had this one for 2 or 3 years but have just never done anything with it. I played with it till Jay broke the steering and then Jimbo got it fixed up in Greenville early this year I guess. Then the battery apparently went bad. Then with all my new found time to do nothing I figured I may as well juice it up some and get it back right and do a body finally.

What? You painted the outside! And you call folks rookies. Is that the Farva Hoppa? Looks good.
yeah, if you painted the outside you may as well go ahead and paint the inside too, because its going to scratch off really bad.

I have seen people paint the inside silver so that it looks like metal under the paint scratches.

Well all the go fasterness parts should be in tomorrow. Ready to test this thing out! Just waitin on my charger and the deans plug. Both should be here tomorrow
 
#52
when you put that new motor in, start by using the same 14t pinion you have now. That motor is considerably faster than what you are taking out. You may overheat it with the 20t on there with those 5.5" Rover tires you have.

Well, got everything in. Still haven't got the charger working yet but what little life was left in the batteries it was 10x the fun factor. DeMarcus is about to bring some stuff over and see if we can get it to run a bit longer. Have to say thats the best $100ish I have spent in a while.

As to the motor heat. I ran it in the house for about a minute with the 20t pinion and it didn't seem to get extremely hot. Ran it outside with the 14t and it did get sorta hot. I never checked on the other motor when it was on there so who knows. As Brooks' PM box can tell you I am RC-tarded.

haha. it's a blast man. I will order that stuff sometime so that I will have it at Windrock incase I break it out and break it again. I actually happened to have a spare trans at the house for it so it wasn't down long.
 
#60
Do you have spares?
Ofcourse not. Lol. Was gonna take it to the beach and tool around but it bounced real hard on the rear yesterday and stripped out.

Cant tell from the pics on my phone did you strip the ring or the pinion or both ?:confused:
Pretty sure it just stripped out the ring gear. It looked really worn but that could have just been from yesterdays abuse. I need to order the parts and hopefully they will be here by next wed. and I can put it together wed. night or thursday morning.
