Back in the Studio is another Pitdawg Hydro-dipped Body! This time I requested a “GRAVE ROBBER” body – I think its pretty darn BAD ASS! For A Slash or an other vehicle you can think of. If you want it hydro-dipped – go check out these links!
The time has finally arrived to show you what we have been working on for about 1 month now. The Planning, Building, Shipping – IT’S ALL DONE! YES – YOU TOO, can have a Tonka Truck RC! Want to see how it is Done?
Check out my friend Judd @ JRPRC: https://www.youtube.com/user/juddphillips
He has a Build Video series that will make you smile! This type of conversion is VERY Easy – and I’ll let you know that it can be done in a relatively short period of time! Here is a Link to the first Build video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Av1Kl8Nm20Y
Follow along in the step by step process! Judd makes it very easy for you to see, and understand. I am excited at the opportunity to showcase his channel, as he is very skilled – and helped me out with this project!
Thanks a lot Judd – I know this will start a new wave of Construction RC! Great job, and I really like this build Anyone can do it!!
The Spring melt is finally here! It has been an unusually long winter – but at last we can stretch our legs and get out to have some fun! I made sure my “Beast” Axial SCX10 I have built.
This particular truck runs on Dual 35T Brushed Motors, and an RX8 ESC. Everything is powered by a GensAce 3s Lipo (8400mah). The Servo is a High Torque Savox, and the tires are Traxxas Sledgehammers. The rims are the GMade Air System 2.2 in size. The Drive Shafts are RC4WD steel Punishers, connected to a VanquishRC Transmission with RRP Steep Gears. This is an electric 4×4 that was pieced together over several years. The Shocks are Integy MSR10 (my personal favourite).
Everything about this truck has been made to be Super Tough, and durable. It is a very expensive truck – but certainly worth all the hours of amazing fun I have with it
Enjoy my friends.. this is certainly an epic journey..
This video is AWESOME! My friend Tobias Braeker takes some time to do a tutorial for RCSparks! Tobias knows I have recently acquired a Front End Loader.. and I’m struggling a bit with the practice. So, in true RC Community spirit, he took the time to do a GREAT Video showing how to Fill a Bucket without the Tires spinning. Here are a few words from Tobias:
There are only a few rules you have to follow and your wheel loader operation will look like the real one:
1. Keep the operation area in front of the pile flat
2. Acute-angle of 2-3 degrees between ground and bucket blade
3. Lifting the bucket to avoid spinning of front wheel
4. Drawn back the bucket to avoid spinning of rear wheels
5. Constant but less driving speed
6. Harmonic cooperation of speed, lifting and drawn back
7. Training, training, training
This is my first time using the this loader. I have been dialling it in, and have since switched out the old FM radio that it came with. This loader is actually 14 years old.. but was well taken care of. It is an original Graupner 1:15th scale Hydraulic Loader. The Noise you hear coming from it is the Hydraulic Pump. I have it on a variable knob so I can control the pressure. This loader turns with a Hydraulic piston, not a servo. The only servo’s on this unit are Micros, that control the Hydraulic Flow Block.
