What about leaving the water? Aren't you relying on the prop to push you far enough up the bank to drop the float and start the wheels?
Ermmmmmmmm good point . i'll rethink this a liitle

The important bit is that it works.

Just out of interest am i the only one who makes a proper technical drawing before starting a project like this ? I mean old school on a draftmans drawing board .I was lucky enough to find a decent image and i've since resized it to match the size of the model i'am working on . Using that i have overlayed the modifications to ensure everything will fit .

A couple of things,
1/ The RC$WD rocker dig switch is unreliable. I bought one a few years ago for an MOA crawler and it was nothing but trouble. I ended up using a mini servo and two microswitches and they never gave me any trouble.
1/ The RC$WD killer transfer box doesnt hold oil that well. I have one and it is now grease filled. There are no proper seals on the input and output shafts, only metal shielded bearings. I dont think that using rubber shielded bearings will offer enough seal against water.

Has anyone used these tires from the source in this thread ? Scale and looks wise their 100 % what i need but i've tried to contact the guy for details with no luck . Ideally i want to fit them to landie rims to get the hex drive .

Hmm... no idea about the scale, but those don't look like they'd be wide enough for landy wheels...

Has anyone bought or used
Komodo Nylon Rock Crawler Driveshafts ? Are they any good ?
Posted 21 April 2012 - 07:49 PM
Very similiar to Axials SCX10 drive shafts. I have a set here from a Komodo dragon crawler that I got cheap for a project. They have metal UJ`s, and would benefit from some drive shaft rings. The rings go over the drive shaft, and stop the plastic coupler splaying under heavy load.
