Talking Project Tamiya Lunchbox, The Brushlessbox



1st off, im from Sweden, my English aint so good, and i hope ya all can understand some of what i will wright here..can someone post a link with the code so i can do the pics SMALLER, thank you

To make a long story, short. My first ever rc-car was a Tamiya Wildwilly got it back in -82 still have it...DRY rubberwheels . No electronics, but someday...i will restore it.

I have always wanted a LB, a friend had one back in the 80´s and there it started...so for a few days ago, i did it..i ordred the LB from Honkong, but before everything, i read a lot of the car on rcuniverse, and here. Still a lot of unanswered questions, but hopfully they will come .

Since im in to racing 95% of my rc time, i have a need for speed.. (2wd and 4wd buggy El 1:10th). But this one, wont come near the performance my buggys will give me, i wil only build this one for fun, and to have anything to play with..kind of missed it a bit..

I hope to "pimp" it so much i can, and do some job on the handling...a major order from Towerhobbies will go on Tuesday. Will use Brushless spedo from LRP and a motor, around 6-7.5r and Lipo 4400mah for some runtime..

This is a copy from my project thread in Sweden..enjoy and il try to keep ya all updated.

Thomas P / back to basic ?


Tires and rims...

Bought Hornet AluHEX, they will let me try some diff 12mm Hex rims... i have or will order thoose..

RPM Bully rear/front (5mm axel är det, där har vi Traxxas NR som e bra)
HPI SS Monster Wheel
Traxxas Front Light wheel Dyable Truck

Rims above wil be shrouded with Proline rubber

Trac-Ta-Gator
Speed Paw
Striker II.

Batteries are as i said erlier, not decided yet, but it will probably be E-Power lipo 4400 mah 2s 20-30C series

My goal with this isnt speed , only joy..it will have a custom painted Parma lexan body for use, and a "nicer" stock body for meeting...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

20/3-2008

Car is ordred, app time to arrive in Swe 1 week
21/3-2008

Alloy Hex, app 2 veeks

22/3-2008

Starting the PAINFULL job to grind down my New FT rc10B4 shockhouse...this one is the tricky part..hard anodized .

Shocks in a Mr Muscle bath



23/3-2008

After a few hours...i was sooo close to give up...this is a true XXXX job, but something ive started i MUST end...Left house stock color..



At last...the first one is done...



The left one is my second, it is only "sanded, and it do realy have a weak surface, but the camera dont do it right... il think i go for the polished ones



Stay tune for updates...

Ok, so i took the motor today...my choice fell on a Novak motor, the new one with Sintred (this is used,some scratches, but ok) rotor.a 6.5r will be good.



First some Mr Muscle bath, to remove the most of the Purple color..



Middle ring is done..





And the result..enjoy!

Autosolvo by the looks of it, but you either got to keep doing it or sprat lacquer them (but they loose a little shine).

Looks wicked though!!

So..final race is over...to anwser ya Q

First Mr Muscle (it is a strong oven cleaner...not so healthy to breath in) it kind of loosen up the "color" on the house..you have to use something to rubber it of, like a fine sanding paper for wet use, like 800-1200 grid..im using a 3M-sponge, to final adjust Autosol crome finish.

im hopning to do something today..im not sure..

the motor and shocks look nice, i like shiny things

A friend of mine, on another forum made his lunchbox brushless, and broke a front wheel, so BE CAREFUL.

wise move getting the spare shells
