Post  coxaddicted Mon Jul 08, 2013 1:04 am

Hi,

i found a nice little buggy with .05 engine. I was allways excited about the small xray 1/18th on road racer with .05 engine, but never found anywhere one to buy.

I purchased the .07 version (still same chassis). I can't wait to hold it in my hands.

BTW: I am allways dreaming about a Small Cox Logo powered off road car. Maybe it will work with this chassis. The .074 Queen Bee would be a good choice I think.

But first we will see what I will get (hopefully) soon-

Update!

The Buggy is hanging around at the customs. The same mess as I have ordered my Cox Stocker from US. I have to wait for a customs statement, pay the charges and will hopefully receive it next week.

BTW: The .07 engine delivers 0.7 HP at 31.000 rpm!!! Not bad I would say

Wake up early this morning and walk to the customs office.

Paid the bill and now i have got it cheers 

Looks not bad at all - very small car. The engine looks like a real performer with a real reso exhaust and all that modern stuff. A 2 gear transmision is also available:Thumbs UP: 

Maybe i find time for break in this weekend and of course a video.

Wow, I have started this little Beast. Man, that sound is awesome, a little bit like a cox. Loud and high frequences!

Sadly my rc was a little bit weak, the steering servos does what it want. So I decided to stop the break in-

I have to check the tx/rx first, I will try again tommorrow afternoon.

But it is very cool.

Hi,

yes I also can't wait for a video. Sadly I cannot start the buggy at the moment. The Pullstarter slips.
Seems that fuel lubricates the bearing of the pullstarter too much. Very annoying:no: 

I am in correspondence with HK regarding this, seems that i am not the only one with this problem.

Maybe it is caused because I am using Fuel with high Castor amount. But I don't know because all car fuels content castor oil (which is of course a very good lubricate).

The engine is made by SH-Engines (Taiwan). Maybe it is a clone of Toky. But it seems to be a real performer.

When the pull starter slipped on my .15 truck, I would take it off and soak the little one-way bearing in alcohol. They act up when they get dirty.

Nice looking truggy, very compact.

when the bearing slips in a pull start I use RC motor cleaner and spray it down in the unit and that makes it work like new again.

Indeed, cleaning helps. But only for some pulls. Maybe it is caused by too much castor in my fuel.

Hi,

Any update on this? Did Hobbyking reply and solve your problem? I'm thinking of buying this for my nephew as birthday present. Wish to know its quality .

Sadly not really. Hobbyking was very customer-friendly and replied very fast (They gave me a refund from which i could buy a new engine). I think this is ok, but I didn't bought a new engine yet (The engine is not the problem, only the pullstart mechanism and one way bearing is faulty). The engine is produced in Taiwan (SH Engines) and it is not from Hobbyking.

The rest of the Buggy is not to bad for the money and all parts (except the pullstart mechanism Mad ) are available for really cheap.

I already ordered a new one way bearing and managed it to change, it works fine for about 30 pulls and slipped again.

I am in progress to find another solution, I will try to fit a oneway bearing in the clutchbell and will try to start the engine by twisting the rear wheels. This should work but needs some machinery to fit the one way bearing. Or I will cut the undercarriage and use a Starterbox. 

Sadly I cannot advise to buy this buggy at the moment Thumbs Down , I altough know that other customers have the same problem. Maybe the older version with the .05 engine has this problems not but i am not sure. Very annoying, this buggy makes a lot of fun and has a good acceleration, the overall quality is not to bad.

Hope I will get this Thing run some day.

Thanks for detail , The 05 size pull starter seems the same as the 07 , have you check carefully check the one way bearing? it worn out fast? for less than $100 ,really can't complain much. hopefully you can find a solution for fixing it.

Just for interest sake, the "one way bearing" is actually correctly called a "sprag clutch".

Hey dinsdale,

sorry my english is not the best (I'am German) but I think one way bearing is the correct expression. What you mean is the clutch in front of the engine.

Sadly no good news about the engine. I have sealed the one way bearing with silicone sealing compound against the fuel. It was working a couple of times until it slipped again.

I found already a rotostart backplate, but it uses also the bearing and same shaft, I guess this is no improvement.
Sadly I cannot find any spare parts especially the shaft is unavailable (the bearing is no problem to find), I guess the shaft is worn out.

My next step is the hard russian way Very Happy  I will use the cut-off machine or Dremel, in Germany we call it ,,Flex'' and open the undercarriage of the car. Than I could use a handstarter with a rubber disc to start the engine. I have to find a solution to close the cut after starting the engine with something.

I might be setting myself up for disappointment, but I'm going to get one as well. I love my planes and heli's, but I'd like to have something nitro that I can just walk out the front door and run...

Hey Vince, that was my intuition too. The car is not bad for the money. The engine is extreme powerful (it has much more power than my Kyosho 1/10 scale cars with .11 .12 and .15 engines!!! the power of this little engine is doubled!!!Very Happy ) I think it has even more power than a picco engine.

The buggy has a good disc brake, slip proof tires. The chassis is fully adjustable, thread schocks, 2 diffs.

A wide range of option parts including a 2 gear transmission. I already buyed a shock tower made of Titanium!

So if you can live with the faulty pullstarter it not a bad deal I guess.

Here is a pic where I want to use the E-starter:

Slightly knurling the shaft where the one way bearing is on would expand the diameter and may work for a while. Dont want to over do it as the one way bearing may not fit on the shaft any longer.

Hi Jason,

sorry but I don not know what you exactly mean with knurling. Should I use a file or pliers on the shaft?
Ah, I do not have a special tool for knurling. Have to find something.
I think you mean with kurling, to bring more grip on the shaft.

Slip proof tires... that would have been nice on my Nissan GTP. The tail never would stay planted in a hard turn.

As for the one-way, I ran across a good read on RunRyder about how they fail due to fracture or not being able to center. Makes sense that it wouldn't grab if a pull starter was keeping it off center.

Hey Vince,

I opened a Topic regarding the GTP Nissan/Stocker Indy car. It would be cool if you could make a video and post it in that Topic. Never seen a GTP Nissan running yet.

*A single tear*

That was quite a while back... like ride-to-the-park-on-my-BMX-to-run-it ago. Honestly not sure what happened to it. It was pretty worn out by the time I left home. Yet another reason to pick up one of these buggys.
