I killed him with my Bear hands you know.



Had a new header ordered as well as a nifty novarossi fuel filter/cooler and it wound up being un-orderable. Called the distributor and they said they were gonna order the header tomorrow from Italy, gotta figure out how to shorten the neck when i do finally get the dang thing.

Once i get the header the last thing i need for break-in is fuel.

2: i also started a speed build nitro pede, i forgot you started one untill now XD
3: want to make a friendly game out of things? we both have nitro pede's, neither run yet, both are for hpi's list. First and/or fastest on the list between the 2 of us wins bragging rights?

its stalled right now. All of my projects are. My wife and i are trying to buy a place of our own and dig ourselves out of some medical debt from our miscarriage last march. It isnt easy. I also find that "trying to adult" is kicking my butt.

I would love to take you up on your offer but im in no position to do anything and most of what the 'pede needs is stuff purchased. I really want to do this project "right" not just a hacked up cobbled creation like i normally do.

When you start a thread shoot me a link and dont be afraid to ask me any questions.

jester, you got me going. i hope you're happy.

I spent all morning racking my brain for a way to make the throttle linkages work and i think i finally got it. my issue with the original setup was 2 part. it was not smooth on the carb slide opening and when brake was applied it did not go through the full action and gave me a weak braking action.

my plan was to make a lever system of sorts so that i could have the linkages and carb move through more natural positions (i guess thats the best way to explain it). originally my idea was to have a bracket come off the rear of the plastic chassis and span the gap across the clutch and flywheel but i found a front bulkhead from some long forgotten oval chassis that i re-purposed as an upright bracket.

my next step was to make a horizontal lever. went through 2 different designs before i figured out that i could press-fit 2 bearings into a standard 2 sided servo horn. with the help of a belt tensioner pulley post from a xxx4 i was able to get a smooth acting, adjustable, and sturdy design.

links were a nightmare too, had to really dig through my hardware boxes and parts bags. eventually i wound up stealing some hardware from a vintage nip rc10 sway bar kit. didnt really want to resort to that but i needed to finish this step.

also re-routed the fuel line around back and took advantage of to open space back there. doing that cleared up the front of the chassis too.

anyway, on to pictures.
