Very Nice! How long did it take you to complete it?

That's awesome! Tell me more about the new motor, gear reduction, and what mods you needed to make so it all fit. I love the new tube frame....

@ G-Class
it took a couple hours to make the frame. it aint done yet. lets call it version 1.0
all together i spend about 6 hours to make the frame and have it sit like it does. the hard part was to find a way to mount it on the chassis so its bulletproof. i had my son ( 3 years) to play and test it. after about 1 hour of´"hardcore crawling" and drop tests of my son i was extremly suprised. no dents :D nothing broke of or was bented. i`d say its profen tough!

i make some pics of the motor mount. u have to do some dremel work to the motor mount to make it fit. cost of motor was 25€ dont know how much in US$

@ minizmaster
i guess like every one who does that hobby knows that for some things there is no price that u will sell what u made! but maybe if i make a new frame we can talk about a price :D

@ all

if someone is wondering Y i didnt make the frame to cover up the batterys: the frame is screwed to the chassis.

Awesome vid. Can you tell me more about the gear reduction, what you used? Would it work with the stock motor? Thanks.

sweet video, looks like it crawls good!

2006.05.18, 03:35 AM

it crawls pretty good. i was suprised. if kyosho would bring out a 4WD OL it woould be a top seller.
i will mesure the max. clim ability if i have time on the week end.
i guess i make a small vid so u can see how it runs.
