Like the rest of my teammates I also bought me a recycle project last year. Up untill last december I didn’t have a clue what to do with it.
As a member of a young group I personally need more time to cope with the rest of the fellows….. So here I am, posting my pics at last…
This is from where I started:
Basic twotone paintjob
I’m very satisfied with the result. Still got three bodies left to go So there will be more in the future
Finally my Supra is ready for use. Dennis (hotrod13) gave it for my birthday last january. Ever since I’ve been wondering what to do with it. But I’ve decided to only use it when there are only drifters on track. This way it will not be bashed by others.
In the photo’s it sits on my TB evo chassis with some alloy wheels. These wheels have huge offset, so I had to figure out some trick to fit the slim tamiya body onto the chassis. But as you can see, it turned out to be quite nice!!
Let’s hope it will stay this way for a long time……..:P
I’ve been trying to mod my 415 to CS. This is how it got so far. Still have to change the front belt and pulley. Still didn’t find a suiteable belt to fit with a larger pulley.
The centerpulley is changed with a HB set. To the back it has a 18T pulley, and to the front it has a 16T pulley.
This here’s the back differential with a TA04 pulley on it. I had to tighten the drivebelt up with extra tensioners. It may look a bit crappy but it works fine.
Also you need to change the positioning of the tires when they are under angle of steering. The tire closest to the driving circle has a shorter radius of steering than the one that’s on the outer circle. This is called Ackermann. When you are modding your chassis for countersteer, you have to minimize, if not, completely remove the ackermann from your steering house. This is a very tricky mod, but the internet is full of alternatives.
I’ve chosen to make it by myself. Still need to finish it, but it works just fine.
