Hi, first post here. I was out of RC for several years until I got the itch to come back. But found out that the local racing program all went extinct, and was a bit bummed out. I decided to go back to my roots and play with Tamiya cars that I did as a child. My first project was the Konghead 6x6. I've been through several crawlers in the past, but the 6x6 really got to me. Thought it might be interesting to see how much I can do with this chassis. I first locked the diffs and gave it some 1.9s I had from a Twin Hammers. Wanted a little more travel, so I added longer arms. Added a little more options, and ended up with this video. Still a work in progress. (need to decide whether to use the kit decals) Let me know if you have other suggestions for the project. Thanks!
I've put the gearbox together on my Konghead and with a dry run, with none of the supplied Tamiya grease, it turned over fine. Now all of the gears are greased there is an awful lot of friction. I was careful applying the grease, making sure i didnt apply too much. Anybody else come across this problem? I was wondering about removing all the supplied grease and trying the Tamiya ceramic grease which appears less viscous? Any thoughts on this? Appreciate any help 😀
