The worst part is almost done! This has been a bit of a nightmare to get my vision into practice. but got there in the end. Had to turn steering servo upside down, as it was working wrong way to steering wheel and drivers head!! Oops! Have wired a socket to steering servo, then spliced wheel servo & head servo together, so i have a disconnect between body and chassis. I have made another connector between driver and wheel, so as i can split scale floor from body if needed. Powered it up? And it works! Oh yeah!! Was starting to doubt it. Now i have lights to sort out. Yikes......

Still enough room for light box & TL0 -U1

Coincidentally, I stumbled upon this a week ago and was wondering how it was coming. Looks very nice so far. Did you ever finish the pikes peak style brat?

Next time you need to reverse a servo and you prefer not to alter its mounting position, open it and swap two outer wires from potentiometer and change motor polarity... This will lead to proper head and steering wheel movement.

Trf 414 m2 you are a star! I will remember that for next time, thank you. Hi road burner, I have hit a creative block on Brat, as I don't know what colour to do it in? I have various ideas, but not one really grabs me! I need to see it done in my head, to be able to Finnish! The scorcher on other hand is complete in my head, down to the last detail. I just need to realise my ideas! Thanks again for all comments & especially pointers on electrics!

That is freaking AMAZING! Great work all around. Will you run this?

Thanks pastimesteve, I will run this just the once to make sure it works & to get some pics & movie down Sandbanks beach, then display only. Pininy, i plan on having it done by aipril, although my target is december for all major bodywork to be done! Ah slimmy, the arms! They are my last headache! I want to attach them with micro ball links, to the steering wheel, then his arms will be made of two rods with another two ball links, so they have good movement. will pad them out like real arms when they move right. I want to make proper race suit (70's style) outa cloth, as i dont want fabric arms & a painted torso! Any ideas would be most welcome guys! Thanks agian for all the comments.

Hiya SFTR,, Just a thought about Lights,, I have a mini Syma Blade, RC Helo, the battery is Very Small , I wonder if it would be possible to tuck away the system and battery from a mini helo, somewhere on your body mebbee in the Boot with the light-control unit, I think the Big, advantage would be to avoid wires Trailing from the Plastic(Masterpiece) Bodywork to the SRB Chassis, Your Lights would not need to draw power from your main system, and could be operated independently for demonstrations??. I am not at all, good at electrics but it may mean you would have to control the lights off a separate Transmitter,, which may be a Headache for the Indicators,, just floating around some Ideas I have considered for a while ,,,,, Cheers from Danno,,

Thanks Kyosho tomahawk, that's a great idea, will give it some research. At the moment I am planning a light box for rear lights & dash lights, headlights are easy, as they are close & hidden. Rest of lights will be fibre optic. Have various sizes for varying brightness.

Thanks so much Slimmy, I know how much of a collector of fine looking RC's Not sure this one will ever be for sale though! But never say never eah! I have wanted to build this one since I saw Rad's Amazing Snap ON SS in 2009, thanks to the re re scorcher & rouge dash kit, I have been able to realise my idea.
