O.K. I have talked to Avant. I can be the USA guy to distribute the motors and the pay-pal money to him. So right now what I need is a show of hand or hands (if more than one) of who wants this motor(s) and when then can get money for the motor(s). So if you want one plan on paying $50.00 each. Once we get a total number off hands then Avant can get a better price each. Then I well e-mail every one with payment and cost of shipping. When I get the motors I will e-mail every one again and give tracking numbers. If anyone has any ????? You can contact me via e-mail at cavalierguy_2002@yahoo.com I will also update this page like so

1. Mr2guy94 (3) :D (paid for 4 motors)
2. Jimbo (3) PAID
3. Drifterdude(1) from (AM)
4.U4ICTHEORY(1) :D PAID
5.Johnrtse(1) PAID from(AM)
6.rizbel(1) PAID

O.K. now show those hands!!!!

Also if anything goes wrong like to much. Then it will go to mini-zracer.com
If not enough then it will come out of my pocket not yours!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Mr2guy94

Ok now rember everyone if its the cost that is scaryin you, then the more people we get the better the discount. :D Hope everyone that reads this gets one or more this is a sweet motor.

jimbo
2007.03.12, 03:26 PM
how many do we need for a volume discount? and you should say i believe this is everyones last chance to get them right?

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.12, 04:12 PM
Here is the deal Avant said once we know how many wants the motor and can get the motor then he will talk it out with Lemo-solar. This will be the last time he will send to the usa. So show hand and the more the better discount. I will get in touch with Avant again. To see if I can get him to get a ball park of a how many and how much the discount will be. Thanks

jimbo
2007.03.12, 04:41 PM
okay since this is the last time he is shipping them here the the US i will get 2 instead of 1.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.12, 09:20 PM

jimbo
2007.03.12, 09:25 PM

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.13, 02:19 AM
Just read my e-mail from Avant look like thinks might get cheaper!!! He has a person in Germany that want to start a group buy!!!!!!! I HOPE THEY DO GOOD LIKE I HOPE WE DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So the more we buy and the more they buy the better the deal????? Come on people im going to tell Avant nightly now how many we have and I'm going to ask avant to be a relay to the Germans and hope they tell us to and Ill update on the germans. also if we get this down to like $30 per motor I might order more than the two I'm going to order.


I'm going to start updating at night late night also :D

jimbo
2007.03.13, 07:35 AM
Cool if they are $30 each i will get three, just because i can. :)

I've talked to Lemo today and I got some more insights on the pricing:

The standard list price for the motor is 41 Eur and he has bought the last available amount of motors as the company which has produced the motors formerly went out of business ... (this is why you don't find this motor elsewhere)

Lemo has already offered the motors the whole time as a special offer for ~ 30 Eur and he has agreed on 26 Eur if grouped ordered (20pcs).

If I've done the calculation correctly the pricing for the Lemo-Solar motors will be ~ 37 USD shipped to the US ...

So hurry up if you really want to got one - it's the right time now ;)

Cheers,

Jo

mr2guy94
2007.03.13, 02:55 PM
Ok USA has 8 sold and Germans have 7 sold do the math that is um like 15 :D there are 5 left. They only have 20 to sell and when this is done thats is it. This is the last of these motors. Unless you bug (ask) me if I'll sell one I just might but it wont be this cheap. So order now

jimbo
2007.03.13, 03:37 PM
i am thinking of getting more just can't decide, and nice quadruple post on the AM forum. Now would the shipping go down on the more i get or is shipping fixed because if that can cut the cost i will want more even more. And my dad just said i could get 3 max so i think i will got for three but let me think about it get back to u on it by the end of the week.

Thanks,
Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.13, 04:49 PM
Jimbo they wont let me edit my stuff there so lots of post. and if you are going to order 3 im going to ship them in the same package so it would be just one cost not 3 and save a little not sure till I get the motors but look at it probly as $7 shipping for all 3 or even if you order just 1 so im thinking it going to be $7 flat rate for all shipping.

jimbo
2007.03.13, 05:08 PM
um put me down for 3 its worth it.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.13, 05:14 PM
ok 3 it is

jimbo
2007.03.13, 05:48 PM
Thanks sorry about changing and not sure what to do but i should be final unless something very odd comes up and i need the money for something else.

Thanks,

besides, who wouldnt want 3 if you end up getting them cheaper than 2? ;)

jimbo
2007.03.13, 08:50 PM
its not cheaper its only like $10 or so more and i don't really care.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.13, 09:23 PM
Hey Ninja are you wanting a motor or 3????? :D there is ony 5 left

jimbo
2007.03.13, 09:59 PM
I am surprised how quickly they went, but i got 3 and you ^^ are getting 4 and drifterdude is getting one so i guess its not that quick.

Jim

2007.03.13, 10:34 PM

jimbo
2007.03.13, 11:07 PM
Man your missing out this is your last and only chance to get one come on the more that is sold the cheaper they are. ;)

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.13, 11:39 PM
If any one wants on I'll have two I might resale???? or trade?????

jimbo
2007.03.14, 07:36 AM
i would not resale it or if you do sell it for more because its their loss for not getting now while its very cheap.

jimbo
2007.03.14, 04:17 PM
Nice choice i can't believe how much money i am spending on my hummer i was only going to spend $200 max and now i am spending $200 in motors alone, the stage 2 was $18, 2 sanyos was $40 and not $120 on lemo solars. Wow i am way over budget.

Jim

2007.03.14, 04:52 PM
I read somewhere that there are 2 versions of the LEMO SOLAR that fit into an overland/xmod if this is true which ones are we ordering?

also, i have an xmod truck and want to move like avant's Xtruck.
WHICH LEMO IS FOR ME?

jimbo
2007.03.14, 05:20 PM
I think there is only one kind, there is something like it made by sanyo but not as good, and the ones avant has we are getting.

Keep in mind, that there are two different types of lemo motors.
The mounting depends on the type of motor you have.

vertical
The one shown on the picture you posted, is mounted vertical. Motor type #MU915L.
Maybe this link will help you!
http://549.rapidforum.com/topic=102878968346&startid=2
On the second page, there are a lot of pictures how to mount the lemo.


horizontal
It is the one sold by www.lemo-solar.de. Remove the worm gear (if it is mounted, you don't need it).

jimbo
2007.03.14, 06:18 PM
o i think it is if you look at the lemo on the site that they are getting them from there is a pic of one with external gears on it and another with just the shaft. thats what i think is the only difference.

whew... that's what i thought too when i first saw the pictures. they looked identical except for that the gearing was removed on one and the other still had the gearing intact...

mr2guy94
2007.03.14, 10:31 PM
there is just one motor. the brass parts are not with the motors, that I'm aware of. If it is then sweet a new center drive maybe????

jimbo
2007.03.14, 10:39 PM
i hope the gears are included what am i paying for then?

Jim

avant
2007.03.15, 12:22 AM
Guys - the brass parts are also shipped, but you actually don't need them, as the gear is already *in* the motor. The brass parts are just needed for smaller trucks or as add. gearing if you like.

Cheers,

Jo

jimbo
2007.03.15, 12:27 AM
Okay good thanks avant, i hope that paying $37 each i would be getting what i see and not what i can't read.

Jim

2007.03.15, 01:21 AM
This is what I'll order for you:

http://www.lemo-solar.de/11434b.jpg

"Truck Trial - Antrieb für M 1:87 (Bausatz)" in the lemo-solar shop.

You can decide on your own, if you like to mount it with or without the brass components. I've done it without the brass components ...

Cheers,

Jo

jimbo
2007.03.15, 07:22 AM
avant do you know if it can be mounted in an xtruck with the brass parts? Or is it very complicated?

Thanks,
Jim

avant
2007.03.15, 08:02 AM
jimbo - I haven't made my mind up, but I see a chance in mounting the whole construction in a 130 class can and using also the large axle from a 130 class motor. Just take care for mounting the new motor on the chassis - this might be a challenge...

I don't know, why you actually want to use the brass stuff as it will be more complex finding the right body. Even without these brass parts the motor has loads of torque - this is what it makes so special ...

JO,

is this motor commonly used in OL's and XTRUCKS that are crawling in europe?
i've been searching far and wide and it seems like only a select handfull of people use this motor. what other motors have you tried using for OL's and XTRUCKS? personally i would love to see more video's you have made.

avant
2007.03.15, 03:05 PM

Yes it is - personally I know of min. 40 different CrawlerZ - OL or XMODS who use the Lemo-Solar.
i've been searching far and wide and it seems like only a select handfull of people use this motor.
Wrong google search strings ? :D
what other motors have you tried using for OL's and XTRUCKS?
just the Lemo-Solar and the geared Sanyo motors ...
personally i would love to see more video's you have made.
Your wish is my command - the following video is with my old Lemo-Solar based OL on my garden trail ...
OL-Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQgml6SwUCg)

Now it's up to you guys posting some interesting videos and pictures ;)

Cheers,

Jo

jimbo
2007.03.15, 03:34 PM
nice video, so comparing the xtruck and ol what do you think is better? And why? :D

Thanks,
Jim

avant
2007.03.15, 04:17 PM
Well each design has its advantage - I prefer in the meantime the XTruck because of the following reasons:
- unmatched outdoor performance - just watch the XTruck video. The OL cannot follow at all and the XTruck just goes over the rocks, though mud etc. No comparison at all. The XTruck wins by far here !
- 4wd design - As I'm a tech addict I love the 4wd stuff

Just because of one reason the OL might be more interesting:
- realistic suspension - here the OL definitely wins

So it's a question about personal preference if we're talking about indoor crawling. If you do outdoor crawling the only answer is: XTruck.

Cheers,

Jo - who likes both, his OL and his XTruck

jimbo
2007.03.15, 04:25 PM
Okay cool, so do you think it is worth me getting an ol, even if you say no, i will most likely get one any way i just want your opinion.

Thanks,
Jim

avant
2007.03.15, 04:28 PM
Well I don't say the OL is bad, I just say, that the performance of the XTruck is much better ...

On dry indoor tracks the difference might be not that big - depending on the track ;)

Cheers,

Jo - who still owns 3 OLs ...

U4ICTHEORY
2007.03.15, 05:00 PM
(avant)
the vid of the OL was awesome, extremely nice body work on that OL BTW.
After watching both the OL and the XTRUCK videos you can really see where the OL disapoints. After comparing the two the XTRUCK is the better at that type of outdoor terrain.

question...how many freaking rocks do you live by man? seems like you live on a mountain side or something...LOL

mr2guy94
2007.03.15, 08:53 PM
2 weeks from this friday so on the 3/30/07 will be the date that the order will go in. So if any of you guys want to pay now or later my pay-pal is cavalierguy_2002@yahoo.com in the instructions area put you user name so I can update with a paid next to your name just look at the first page and look at my name :D


so far only 9 people have orders so it wont be as bad but 4 left that i am aware of at the moment

I also figured that there would have been a huge demand for these look at the video would bring even more people asking for them like -turbo- who has not order one from me yet :D

I replied on another forum, but I'll also do it here.

I'm in for (1) at the price point of $37 usd shipped. At $50 plus shipping, the Minister of Finance (my wife) would veto the purchase.

Let's get it to 20!

avant
2007.03.16, 03:20 AM
All - we've already reached the 20 motors (10 for the US and 10 for DE), I'll give you an update later today about the exact costs which you have to pay to mr2guy94 and he'll transfer the money to me, so I can do the order if the total arrives at my paypal account.

@U4ICTHEORY - as I own an old farm in a geologically interesting area, there are quite some rocks ... :D
My wife intended to build a nice scenery in the garden with the rocks, but it seems, that they'll stay in my garden trail ;)

@Jimbo - time will come.

do you live by other people who share your interest?
should i start doing interviews? :eek:
is this getting annoying? :D

you don't have to answer the last two... :D

[MR2GUY94]
I will pay once the final price is confirmed and set. i will be emailing you for updates regarding the buy. also, if the order goes in on 3/30/07 then when can we expect the motors to arrive in the US? (i'm trying to get a time frame of when i can start the build) :)

[JOHNRTSE]
i feel and shared your pain... but after the CFO spent $80 on shoes she will never use i thought it was only right that i could spend $50 on a toy that will get more use then her shoes. :cool:

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.03.17, 10:01 PM
YES all 20 have been sold. But I was informed that he can get more. So if anyone wants a motor then let me know and I will put you down for any amount that you want and can afford. So every one that orders is locked in at $37 plus $7 shipping. You will even save more because I'm paying for the shipping of the motors to the USA. Also the more you buy the more you save because you only have to pay for shipping once.
SO COME ON PEOPLE ORDER SOME. Order for the motors go in on 3/30/07. All the payments will be made by then also, unless you e-mail me. I will still order for you and you can pay me later. After payment then I will ship it but ONLY if you e-mail me first. My e-mail is cavalierguy_2002@yahoo.com that is also my pay-pal account also. Thanks Mr2guy94

P.S. Jimbo what day will you get back from your field trip???

jimbo
2007.03.18, 03:33 AM
my trip is April 11th, 12th, and 13th i think, and man do i wish i could get more motors but then i would have to rob another bank and i am tired and have the police out for me..................j/k but i do wish i could get more

Can you send me a email for the total price for the 3 motor and wire for all 3 etc? and i will pay ASAP
Edit: I said i would keep u posted on the sanyo motors, i would recommend not doing this your self the screws i needed are litterly impossible to get and i just need to get a couple of things from my LHS, but they have the weirdest hours you could think of plus i think they are closed on weekends. So get the lemo solar while you can do not try what i am doing.

UPDATE ok so far I need Drifterdude and Johnrtse payment both are getting one motor each so that is $44 ($37 motor + $7 shipping) total to pay-pal account cavalierguy_2002@yahoo.com

Jimbos total look like its $126 ( $37 x 3 = $111 + 7 shipping + 8 wires = $126)for everything. To the same account as above.

When I get all the payments. I will send the payments to Avant. If we send the payment and I get the motors. I will update this site on when you should get your motor(s).

Jimbo yours might take a little longer do to soildering and maybe waiting for the parts to come in to finish yours. I will keep you updated tho

Thanks Nathan

Money received, the order is placed at Lemo and already paid. I expect the motors ~mid of next week, so they arrive in ~2 weeks in the US.

Cheers,

key word SHOULD :D I hope so that would be nice. Also depends on the German forum to. If they all have payed???? but I'm still missing drifterdudes payment and I had e-mail one of the others on there payment. So I'm missing $88 if they dont pay I'll have 6 motors. I'm going to try to sell the other 2 that I have maybe one to my friend that has a truck. If the others dont pay or back out then I'll have 2 more motors to sell and make more money back or trade for parts????

Thanks,

long time, no type.

Thanks for the group buy guys, good comunitcation throughout.

My Xmod truck is being prepped as I type. Also ordered in my shopping cart are complete delrin gearing throughout, super swampers on slammed rims, and kyosho 6T pinion.

look whos gonna be crawling now baby...



(I use my fiances paypal account so it says Cheryl Viriyapunt)

vzereeys
2007.04.10, 07:10 PM
would 6t pinion gear mesh right with the xtrucks bevel gear?

jimbo
2007.04.10, 11:20 PM
no i think the smallest you can go with the gears you can get is 7 or 8. you can get 6 to work but thats if you have a huge gear for even more torque.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.04.11, 06:03 PM
MOTORS CAME IN TODAY!!!!! yey. I'm going to ship them all out exept for jimbos will be tommorrow on april 12 and jimbos will be on the 13 ok maybe 14 the hole friday the 13 thing ;) j/k talk to you all later

I need one for a spare. Reserve one if still available. Thanks.

For my crawler project I have super swamper tires with inverted slammed rims (tip: these are made of hard plastic, not rubber, so put in hot water to make them soft in order to remove/install rims) on an F150.
Anyone know where to get rubber swamper tires? Thanks.

mr2guy94
2007.04.12, 08:38 PM

go to ebay and search for "aoshima swampers". Buy the 38" one. It's made out of soft rubber and has amazing grip.

2007.04.23, 09:26 PM
you might try the suggestion of taking an old X-Mod motor, dremel out the center of the end where the shaft comes out, remove endbell, comm, and magnets. Sit the Lemo-Solar inside. and put the endbell back on. Happy Crawling :D

jimbo
2007.04.23, 09:37 PM
tried with another motor so i don;t have a spare plus there is no place to hold the motor to the case.

Jim

jimbo
2007.04.25, 06:01 PM
okay i got my motors they are great i was playing around trying to get it mounted today and both the tabs on the motor broke off is there anyway of fixing it please help i don't want $40 to go down the drain.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.04.25, 06:24 PM
ok i looked at mine also take the 4 screws out of the back and try to soilder wires to the motor that is in the case then slowly inlarger the holes and feed the wires thought the holes and put the back on that is what I'm going to do??? and I'll post the results and try to take pictures.

jimbo
2007.04.25, 06:31 PM
ok thanks my dad thought of like the same thing i was on the verge of decapitating my self for doing that and my dad was not to happy either with the price of these motors and the fact that i am blowing another $100 on RCM molds. my dad just noticed that you pealed away the silicone stuff weakening the tabs (basically making them break) and soldiered up pretty high. and left a burn mark in the back case.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.04.25, 09:00 PM
I did that to make sure the contacts did not touch and short out your board or motor. So I used shrink tube to cover them so that would not happen. Thats also what I did to mine and have had no problem with it yet. The connection between motor and wire ( the thin strips to the motor ) are weak that is why im taking one a part and soidering wires to the motor in side and feeding the wires out the case. About the case it was a pita to get them wires to soider on the small tabs so im sorry about the case.


on the other hand i would like to know how every one is mounting there motors and what they are using to make them go when I get done with mine i will post pictures

jimbo
2007.04.25, 09:47 PM
well mine broke in like 5 min while trying to mount them can you post pics on how you feed the wires through.

Jim

mr2guy94
2007.04.25, 10:15 PM
I will when I get it finished :D

sorry guy i would have posted on here sooner but i have had a hard week first my sister was in the hospital and then monday my grandfather died so i will try to get to this soon and sorry jimbo for the delay in pictures on the fix.

avant
2007.05.04, 02:45 AM
@jimbo - that doesn't look good at all - the only thing you can do here is, that you either dremel a little the brown cover around the broken tab and solder then the wire directly to this little piece of remaining tab, or you have to take off the brown piece of plastic and you have to solder a new tab to the old tab. Unfortunately I haven't opened the motor at all and it sems, that the plastic parts are glued.

After return from my holidays I try to get some more infos from lemo-solar directly.

Cheers,

Jo

i always wanted a lemo motor, but $44 shipped isn't worth it to me.

i don't have that much money to spend on an rc motor. :(

where are the new vids with the lemo motors in action? i've only seen avant's old videos that i've already seen when he first uploaded them!

Does anyone have a motor for sale for less than $50? Now that I have a job, I am willing to spend more on this hobby.
