Talking puegeot headlight solution

here's my peugeot headlight solution....

no matter how much plastic i removed on the headlights (using a dremmel to remove the excess plastic on the headlights), it always seemed to get in the way of the front wheels so i just decided to take it all out

i got a piece of material that would approximate the looks of the headlight from some sort of bag of chips (i.e. doritos, leys)... cut out a piece that was near to the ripple at the top (in the picture, its right next to the scissors) and stuck it in place of the original headlight with masking tape...

and here's it finished... which one is the original?

http://mini-zracer.com/forums/attach...s=&postid=6866

kinda looks good, plus the wheels/tires don't rub anything anymore

oh yeah extra link.... coolest collection of miniz's i've ever seen...

thanks to funkydog...

I did almost the same thing....I just took off the silver backing, and painted the clear lenses silver on the back side. Looks fine, can't really tell the difference, especially when the car's moving

that's a really good way of preventing rubbing.... i think i'll try that, cuz my S2000 has the same problem.... but the wheel touches the lights when the suspension goes down...

ghost...

here is a picture of my setup... using the peugot will require the kyosho high motor mount setting... and will take a while for you to get used to driving.... i put some lead weights taken from the tamiya mini4wd and stuck some under the motor mount to lower the cg in the back and put some weight up in front to balance it off (more or less)

you can also add a kyosho rear shock in the back by turning the whole assembly around... like what i did to my vitz...

this is the rear shock on my vitz... kyosho just came out with a rear shock for the high mount... still not available here... so in the meantime this will have to do...

if you can't solve it by using the dremmel, try putting in hard front springs, that way they won't compress as much, and you hopefully won't have any rubbing against the headlight assembly

Beyond srings

Herman,

The 206's rub-a-dub-dub problem goes beyong springs.
A full-lock turn either way will have the tyres rubbing on the inner headlight moulds.
Obviously, this can be dialled out using the steering response setting on thr TX. I just thought I'd add that

I am still to make the mods, I have got the headlights out and I've also ground away the posts that held the inner headlight moulds. Do I follow your lead, or just paint the headlights silver, like Russ did?

Decisions...decisions.......

Thanks

Thanks Russ,

Actually, it doesn't look to bad at all. Kind of reminds me of a polycarb/Lexan bodyshell

Once finishing this posting, I will continue to finish the headlights on the akward Puggy 206 WRC

PUggy 206

Herman & Russ,

Examining the pictures of your lovely yellow 206's, I decided to get one for myself too..
YUp, there's something about that colour yellow that catches my eye.
Also, the metallic paint on my blue one will get scarred when I race it..

Now to try and hunt down some Tamiya 206 WRC warterslides...
Any idea where? I sure don't want to buy a Tamiya kit just for decals...
