Time to order more parts .
Time to order more parts .
What did you break? Looks like you lost a tool box LOL.
The kids enjoy going to the skate park but OVERKILL not so much. All the kids were taking turns flying through some loose dirt. After a few doughnuts OVERKILL flips over and blows the shock cap off . I just threaded it back on without any shock oil to finish out the day.
What brand is that steering assembly?
Ordered an aluminum steering holder from the same company that makes the servo saver I just installed. Trying to talk the wife into letting me order some blue aluminum shocks from Integy.
Nice truck. Digging it
I fixed the wheel slop a few months ago on my stock Summit. Stopped at the hobby shop today and picked up some of the HPI 5mm wheel nuts # Z682. Remove the hex adapters and cut half the threads off then used lots of bearing mount on both nuts . With the big tires there is still a small amount of slop but nothing like before.
Got some more paint and put a couple more coats on the bottom side of the chassis plate. Their are a lot of deep scratches . Picked up some decals aka(stickers) and the boys chose this one . The plan is to put several coats of polyurethane over it in hopes it wont get ripped off too soon.
Be afraid be very afraid.
Gonna try and stop in morning after work to pick up a few things so I can try some copper plating. I have always liked chemistry since school and think it would be cool to put it to use in my rc addiction . I tried some plating a few days ago with stuff I had at home but the copper didn't stick too well.
Got Overkill cleaned up and finished painting the roof rack . Boys made me put their trucks in the picture since they helped clean Overkill. We have been cleaning him up for 2 weeks off and on in plans to have Overkills picture put on a t-shirt. The wife thought it would be cute for a fathers day gift but he was covered in mud at the time.
Nice. i like it. do you like KD chassie, just switched everything over to my new KD chassie and have not run it yet.
I like it a lot better then stock . Looks better holds bigger batts and easy to tweak. I ran mine for just a few weeks before I removed it and stretched it 2 inches.
Does anyone know where i can find the electronics to add some real monster truck sound effects to OVERKILL. I tore apart a cheap rc last night with starting and idling sounds and hooked it up . I'm looking for some loud revving sounds something that sounds mean.
What about a small mp3 player and small speakers under the body?
Xerun 150A 2200kv ERBE
Dewalt 14.4v Summit
I am looking for something like the Mtroniks Digisound module . I like the thought of it revving louder as you pull the throttle harder. I just didnt like the 2 second delay it had in both videos that i saw and that it wasnt loud enough.
Just get a little nitro motor just for the sound and run the output connected to nothing
Blue Summit with many blue leds
Awesome build.. I'm just starting my first custom build. It will be a summit as well.. I will definitely be getting a lot of ideas, tips and tricks from your build. Incredible truck man.
This maybe something that the new Harley Davidson electric motorcycle may need. People are already hateing on it because it cant produce that Harley Davidson exhaust note
MAN, Use Common Sense
Funky Gecko, SumVee HDE
So far, I've ordered the chassis and RPM A-arms all the way around.. extended A-arms in the rear. I'll start a build thread when they get here and I'll order more stuff when I get more money..
