with patience can over come most things

he's gone a step further with it now--

Couldn't resist to start the last major upgrade... Although I don't have the appropriate 10A mini brushless esc yet I mounted my iniminitiny brushless motor (12mm x 20mm 10300kv) on the chassis. I took a 8T pinion from my old walkera heli's tail and drilled the hole from 1 to 1,5mm. It fitted nicely on the shaft.
I drilled and cut a hole in the motor mount and glued the motor with epoxy inside. It was a one time shot but luckily I got it right with a nice gear mesh.
The esc...
Well I had a 1:10 45Amp hobbyking esc lying around. Took off the fan and heatink, shortened all wires and taped it on top. It fits!!! baaaaaarely. No more room for the transponder though.
Drove the car in my living room. Couldn't give more than 1/4th throttle. Speed is insane!! looking forward to Thursday.

If you have the Corona CS/DS-919MG, I don't know why you would want to change it to a Turnigy. In my own experience, the cheaper Turnigy and HK servos don't centre well, but I have not had any problems with Corona servos taking a beating in 1/24 and 1/18 trucks and they come back to centre well. The 919 is plenty fast enough IMO and for high-traction on-road conditions, having a steering response too fast will put you on your lid!

I stated in post: a member on another forum had superb results with chassis: from which i posted his replies to question on mini z shell fitment as you had drama with no sight of a remedy/ lost interest, I knew car had protential not a paper weight
the 919 good spec for very little money but not exactly same build spec as mine(coreless,ballrace & heatsink) which i've been running for a year an half in carisma gt14 pro mk2 issue free, have few other turnigy & hobbyking servo's no issue. I rather a fast response servo which i dull down with settings on my radio if too aggressive for conditions

finally got one :)

Been waiting an age to get one but been on BackOrder so I thought till another member showed me theres a tz4 V2 an in stock brought
so late week gone it arrived





Added some hop ups available from hobbyking (got few other parts to arrive)



Was going to wait till all parts was in before putting tool it but couldn't resist


I started at rear attempting to mount bulkhead onto chassis screws got tight too point of snapping an bulkhead still able to move (thats how screw ended up after tightening not crossed threaded) the screws supplied with alloy rear bulkhead need to be tat shorter 3-4 threads less(fire up dremal time but would like hex screws instead)



Front seem fine

Moslar with pn racing interchangeable mount




Bodys fit well into side clip no fuss but clear to see sits too high on this chassis so side clips require raising in body.

So got about shortening servo an motor lead, had quick test on pool table (hear some clicking when pinning thottle so need to shim diffs) will have some fun with it once source front springs
