Why thank you! Clearly you're an optimist. I think a pessimist might focus on the somewhat low run time to elapsed time ratio. :)
In other news, I have more gear arriving today -- a DX4C / SR4210....
In what must be becoming a trademark for me, today I didn't quite make it through a run. Shredded my motor wires due to uncontrolled wheelies! What a problem to have, though. :)
Got a wheelie bar...
I'd actually like to get this back up and running. The server I was using died a few years back, and I'm working on recovering the data.
By the way, did that wheelie bar require any modification to install? I'm looking for one for my LS-2.
Did a little transmission transplantin'. Finally!
06/29/2015 Transmission transplant - Good to get hands dirty again.
Sounds like you got some excellent use out of your fleet of hawks, well done!
Have you remedied your output yoke problem?
...says I, after yet another half year of neglecting my beloved hobby :)
I'm taking it slow at the moment, picking up some new transmission parts. Looking forward to getting things...
Cool, good info on the aftermarket stuff, thanks.
I'm currently running stock metal gears, I think from a Rustler. Pretty cool that they were compatible!
I may have bent something, as my spur...
Hey Harry! Many thanks for all your help getting it up and running in the first place.
I took it outside today for the first real run in a long time. Nothing too exciting here. I kept it around...
The LiPos are....scary.
But what a problem to have! :)
Man, I missed R/C. How did I let 4.5 years go by?
Since then, I've had a little fun with my LS-II, but not enough. It culminated in a trip to Outer Banks three years ago.
I was zooming on the...
Ask and ye shall receive!
Today's update, the 5/12/2009 WIP, adds the TCP model.
Thanks. Wasn't too bad, and a geek like me enjoys the time spent anyway. :p Also the work naturally followed what I was already doing to figure out how to upgrade my Hawk-II to an LS-II.
Great find, and looks like great shape! Needs more dirt on it though - you know what to do about that :)
I second that. I see those go for around $50. There's definitely demand for the right price - I see them come and go often.
After sitting out the entire winter...it still works. WOO!
We hit a local park for a quick run. Valerie was along with a pocket digicam to grab a few casual pics for me.
I was bored and remembered this project...so, now with more pictures! 04/08/2009 WIP
There isn't a whole lot that you'll be able to use from newer stuff, in my experience. The most useful and surprisingly part, though, is that Rustler VXL steel gears and revo-spec slipper clutch are...
Very nice, Marv.
Myself, I use a Rustler black gear cover on the LS-II. It's not the most perfect fit in the world, but it works (and it clears the stock titan shaft, too!).
Not too familiar with the layout of the bullet, but I have to give a nod to the Castle Creations Sidewinder. The 5700KV I put in my LS-II gets her up to 40 MPh (estimated) with fairly conservative...
If you use the 12T titan, just be sure 1) not to overgear it, and 2) to go easy on it at first to break it in. They seem to have a habit of kicking the bucket in the first few runs if you're not...
Many thanks to you both.
Just finished the gift wrapping bonanza. Now the fiancee and I are off to visit family and friends in CT and NY for a few days.
FrankenHawk coming next year! ...ok, so...
No kidding! Would have never expected a Bullet to be wider than the Hawk. How's the weather up there, no chance for an outdoor excursion any time soon (at least, without waterproofing :))?
I finished up the body the other day, so figured I would post on the completed product. This is a stock Rustler body, painted with Tamiya gunmetal gray metallic. The rear mount didn't need any...
Why, when a second truck magically appears, of course :p
