Misses is out, so Tooltime. Always dissatisfied how wobbly the servo is mounted in the WT01/WR01/WR02 chassis. The new DT03 and MF01x chassis however have these nice sturdy mounts. So down to the basement and hack away at the chassis some platicard and a bit of POM. To get this to fit You have to cut away one bit and for more stability add a spacer Which would come out a bit like this This is the first prototype, should be possible to have it printed at shapeway or maybe milled from alloy. Screws for the servo With some spacers makes the height variable Fitted into the chassis Leftside Rightside If I get to it I will make a sketch with some measurements.
This started life as a Blackfoot 3 kit, with the intention of making it 4WD and possibly 4WS. I built it as instructed and bought the extra gearbox/ shafts/ arms/ etc to make it 4WD I then bought a 2nd hand wild dagger? roller for the steering and extra gearboxes. anyway, not so much a build thread but thought some of you might be interested.......................... The gearbox and suspension assembly is held to chassis with 4 screws( well 3 so far in this case, lol ) each side, very easy to work on. I could drill straight through and bolt it but haven't yet. It's a bit rough, first attempt at this, still has sharpie marks where I was going to remove more metal, messed up the steering servo, cut the hole too big and had to add the extra plate, not finished it off yet. I have created a weak spot where I cut past the angle to clear the standard shock tower, maybe next time, just cut it off and work round it? I have some very rough sketches of a chassis idea that I had. I did say rough lol,.. I think another gearbox could be added very easily. Tools used. Cordless drill Round file half round file 3mm drill bit. 2.4m of aluminium angle. (enough of this left to do another, possibly an 8x8) Took it out for a spin today and it drives quite well. I'd say it's better than it was 4wd. Will try and get video soon.
