2x2 FET stack of SI4562DY FETs (you'll like this one)

Carbon Fiber Midship Conversion X plate...now I need a Ferrari Enzo body....:rolleyes:

This isn't a really good shot....GPM Alloy motor mount

http://img19.photobucket.com/albums/v57/amitojbatra/758c3810.jpg

And I need a ball diff (for more clearance and for WAY less slippage in the gears...With all the power from the FETs and the 35 turn motor with Crest Spinbrush mags, this thing freaking screams!!) for this to work, because the screw gets in the way.....The GPM 11T pinion....

It's not installed now, instead I have to use the stock 6T pinion because of the lack of clearance from the stock diff....and it's also what's causing a heapload of slippage in the gears inside the stock differential....:rolleyes:

Now I have to get a USB/Firewire cable and some movie making software to take a video....:rolleyes:

interesting. be sure to keep us informed ;)

Arch, if a person like you thinks it's interesting, then I guess I'm a lucky fellow. ;)

everyone else's opinions are welcome ya know! :rolleyes:

Anyway, I think I may have already fried my FETs.....The motor hookup wires just keep coming off, but I think I may have done a bad soldering job, because when I gunned the throttle with my finger on the FETs...they got really hot, I almost burned my finger! But no smoke came from them, so I think the FETs may be ok. I can only hope! :(

Anyway, I have some Xmod motors, when I'm not feeling lazy, then I'll get a candle/lighter, heat the pinions and pop em off, and try those out. :D

I have to start working a bit harder around the house, but when I get 20 dollars, I'm getting a ball diff, and some more FETs just in case (and if ph2t keeps selling his Woah nelly turbos, I'll eventually buy one) and hopefully I'll be back in business.

you definatly need to replace those skinny arse wires if your going to increase the power to motor...

neat trick with the xmod pinions...let me know if it works and how well they perform. god knows i have about 6 of them myself. :p

your pictures aren't coming up for me right now :confused:

Umm arch...they're working now :p

And the pinion pulling didn't work...I practically burned the pinion black, and when I pulled the pinion with a plier and held the can in place with a hammer...it pulled the leg a bit out of the armature! :eek:

what body do you use? if you have some wide rear wheels, try those as drac suggested.

Charlie Brown
2004.07.12, 08:37 PM
Umm...what?

Anyways. I'm planning on another order anyways...

Ball differential, stock motor (to play around with, hopefully I won't break it...lol), and maybe some more FETs.... :confused:

you know that the ferrari enzo body dosen't work with that midship
c/f x-plate. You'll need some way of converting an h-plate from the mr02 mm
and a mr02 mm pod if you want that. Oh yeah,l you'll need some REALLY wide front rims... :p

mike, trust me man, with the X plate, there's a longer wheelbase than if you were to use an h-plate. I know...I screwed the X-plate into the position to create the shortest wheelbase (that's the distance between the middle of the front and the middle of the rear wheels, am I right?), and even with the skyline body it would rub the rear of the rear wheel wells....The Ferrari Enzo is the way to go....

Anyway, I switched back to the stock h-plate, the X plate makes the motor hard to remove, and the carbon fiber plate is very rigid and hard to flex....So, back to the stock h-plate, I mean heck, it's not gonna break unless you try to fold it or something......besides, the h-plate and behind-the-axle mount is just more....umm...."mini-zish"....;)

charlie,
the x-plate gives you the longest setting on the mini-Z, and two others, basically giving you the longest one on the mr02 RM and then the two shorter ones on the mr02 MM.for the x-plate, you CAN use a mr01 body, any LONG body.
i.e. altezza, nsx(all). skylineJGTC, clk(all), c5r, 360modena. i know there are others
just can't think of them right now. :)

edit::: you'll also need to somehow make some really wide front rims for the
enzo if your using that. I dunno why you would want enzo, its ugly(in my eyes
that is). ;)

lol, thanks Mclaren...I WOULD like to use the 2F2F skyline body or the 2F2F lancer body, perhaps the taisan porsche...but for now it's all in my head...Stupid ****heads at the stores, they don't allow people under 16 to have jobs... :mad:

and in my eyes, the enzo is just sexy :p

Does anyone know what the wheelbase of the enzo body is? I hear it's 98mm, and the X plate, according to Mclaren f1 t3, gives an L wheelbase (94 mm). And the differences between each body setting (S,M,L,) is 4mm each, so if I moved the X plate back one setting, then I could probably fit an enzo body on! :eek:

Well, looks like I made a big mistake in ordering the GPM Alloy motor mount. I hear from pomme de terre that it only fits the GPM motors...when I put the 1.5 spacer in, the clip won't go back on! Drat....However, if I use the 9T pinion and a 1.0 spacer, and push it in with the set screw a LITTLE bit, I'm good. So, that's my only option at this point.

I'm also getting 2 sets of delrin servo gears, the Xtra Speed High Performance motor, bearings, a clear blue chassis, and alluminum lug nuts from D i n b a l l RC m a r t. I received 2 9T pinions, a Kyosho stock motor, and a great ball differential from Wedginator (Thanks buddy! :D), so I just need those parts, and if my 2x2 stack of 4562's can handle it....then I'm good!
