Hopefully someone can help me :-D This is my first post and am really struggling with a vintage FAV. have totally taken it apart and rebuilt it. When I put power through the motor the gearbox runs ok - is noisy but is ok. the short shafts turn fine. When I connect the long shafts it seems to lose any torque so much so that the wheels don't turn once on the ground. Any ideas what I am doing wrong. Have had a look at all the elements and they seem fine (not worn out etc.) Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give...
For Sale... Link to my showroom post... http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=119944&id=31334 Tamiya Fast Attack Vehicle featuring Wild Willy... Fast Attack Willy This has been built by me, and is based on the Tamiya re-release Fast Attack Vehicle, kit no.58496. The idea was to build a Wild Willy M38 themed FAV. So basically this is a FAV with lots of nods to the Wild Willy M38, including; all-round Padlatraks (fronts by SRB Bloke), winch, jerry can, NOS bottle, fuel cell, roll bar foam and spot-lights, fire extinguisher, spare wheel (including a spare wheel), and of course Willy himself at the wheel. The model has been run once on a sandy beach, for the purpose of taking the showroom photos. It has been cleaned but there is evidence of sand in the model. It includes an acoms steering servo and Axial 55T motor, both of which were new when they were put in the model and therefore have only been used the once. No other electrics are included. The model is ballraced, includes the Tamiya FAV hop-up aluminium damper set and has Axial bucket lights (the lights are for display and do not function) Included also is the kit instruction manual, bespoke Fast Attack Willy decal sheet, Kit decal sheet, various USED kit parts, ie. front and rear suspension, the lights (one of the light mounts is missing). Please note that some of the kit parts have been used/painted and therefore are not as new. There is visible evidence of use where the ESC wires have rubbed away some of the chassis paint. Additional photos can be sent on request. £550 ovno, including UK Postage & paypal fees Postage overseas - please contact me for a price.
Completed my firs tamiya' real happy with the finish. Decided to go for a race version as I prefer the FAV's looks over the Wildone. Filed off a few off the "rugged army details" to give a more civillian look' Those tamiya paints are nice to work with if you take the time! I blanked off all those holes on the bottom with plasticard, relocating on/off switch to the deck opposite the driver, added foam blocks behind the steering servo to block out sand and dirt. Cut down the old battery box behind driver, and covered the old exit hole for the battery on the side with the nerf bars' and relocated motor wires through the old battery box. The shocks were replaced with the new FAV black damper set and I must say they are a quality item with no leakage' even after a bit off heavy abuse and they soak up the rough really well... landed a three foot jump off a set of steps on to concrete! RS Sports tuned motor gives it a bit more go' cant wait to hit the beach!
