Re: Wooldridge 1940s Bottom-Dump Truck

Anybody remember what's the big thing a DUMP truck really needs to be able to do?

Well then we better do something about that!

Re: Build an Excavator from Scratch

That's really cool!

Re: Wooldridge 1940s Bottom-Dump Truck

Pufferfish, There are some small parts, but other than some gearbox screws and the setscrews for shaft couplers, it's not being too fiddly yet.

Mounting these gearboxes to the inside of a smaller...

Re: 1/10 Oshkosh M1070 A0 (3D Printed/Scratchbuilt)

Good to see you back with some updates on that project.

That truck looks amazing! That's gotta be a beast in 1/10. Plus the trailer looks like it'll be killer too

Used to drive those or just a...

Re: Wooldridge 1940s Bottom-Dump Truck

Jerry, thanks for your help brainstorming on this one! I think the Wooldridge power unit should be good for 2 esc, 1 rx, some sub-C nimh, pilot light, driver. Then the attachment can carry servos and...

Wooldridge 1940s Bottom-Dump Truck

Goal: I want a larger Dump truck that's going to be easier to hit with a Dragline bucket than my Structo 1960s pickup, and Nylint 1930s pickup.
Yeah, just for ease of loading, i'm not even worrying...

Re: Axle suggestions?

These '23 rpm' boxes use the same case as the '90 rpm', differences are just internal, gear sizes & layout.

Re: Axle suggestions?

A couple minutes with these new "23 rpm" / 260:1 boxes got the motors swapped. Wired straight to a 6 nimh stick pack seems like it should have the torque up closer to where i need it.

Re: Tamiya 3348 - how to change to 6x6

Can you get enough traction just starting with Locked axles or Limited-slip?
Do you want to keep the 3-spd?
Do you want to be Full-time driven or Selectable front drive?

There's a lot more info...

Re: Tamiya 3348 - how to change to 6x6

I believe most of the all-driven conversions used to use a Tamiya TLT front axle, rear inner-dually rims for the steer wheels.

Sometimes add a t-case behind 3spd gearbox, slight trans lift and...

Re: Nylint michigan crane conversion, hopefully

I know that a WPL / JJRC axle with the plastc D-chassis wheel is narrow enough it looks like it'd be the inner wheels of a dually. I still need to try ordering some aluminums. Do they have anything...
