Finding a way to control was not easy I almost lost hope I will surely revise the system the gearing ratio is 9 turn of engine for one turn on wheel Should be quick with the punch Small Cox Logo Babe Bee .049 St.Pats Beers lol!

Thank you all I really had fun building it it was easy as well less time to build than almost all the other models This little truck has advantages like the reversible differential so you can use any engine model.
By any I mean turn right or left The parts to modify like the drive shaft are easy to find, made with aluminum, a simple bar that can be modified easily with a gear of the right diameter which is fixed with a set screw. On m'y I used a derlin gear from junk stuf Which I modified very simply One end of the drive shaft is larger with an x-shaped notch the gear that lay in my junk pile had a tip like a busching Which was part of the gear I shortened it then cut with notches To fit and fixed it wit a ruber bushing glued in place That way it's held in place. Now Huh... What will be the next build Small Cox Logo Babe Bee .049

Maintenance day for the small truck ful engine inspection complète brake down piston conecting rod reset after brake in the engine has a super Good compression al Good Then I received parts for the brake calipers of my nissan skyline I have two kinds of fat all are written in Japanese Chinese I recognize one but the other pink color tells me nothing it say Rubber grease The other package the only sign I can decipher translate is rx_2 I wonder if someone can give an indication of what sort should go in and on the piston for the instalation and The other kind for slider pin The last time the guy who did the job put the wrong thing which destroyed the seals1\18 stadium truck convertion wit cox tee dee  16491710
Deciphering the instructions in Japanese impossible, that must be why the last time was not correct1\18 stadium truck convertion wit cox tee dee  16491711
1\18 stadium truck convertion wit cox tee dee  16491712
Just looking at the instructions gives me a headache If I knew which kind was used last time I could use the other this time If I don't manage to know in the end, I have a chance out of two of succeeding
Looks like it's the same thing but I think one kind is really to go on the piston seals the other in the pins Huh... DAMMIT! Computer Issues Crazy Eyes Head Bang

Me it was a new truck at the time I paid $150 Canadian dollar I really enjoyed it when it was electric, I used it for several years This year the current speed controller has broken and I said to myself why not convert this To a cox engine After checking it was obvious that it was possible I don't really calculate the total cost But for me it was not very expensive because I already had all the things to build it Just the exhaust system for example must have cost me almost $40 on ebay plus the norvel .061 hélicoptère cooling head 25 or 30$ cant remember It's cheaper to look for a model 1\16 nitro Something like an exceed blur hsp bugy those .7 has Good power i also have one But in the yard in winter it's a bit big it want to move fast this 1\18 Is more adequate And .049 cost ridiculously cheap to ride fuel gets more.expensive So I have to be creative to keep having fun for cheap
