I built one ,but I wrecked it ,stupid me , I built it an used a o-way diff spool
up front in which canceled out the front brakes causing a high speed out
of control when I used the brakes ,it slid an hit a parked car at full speed.

It hit so hard that it destroyed the ESC!...:headbang::headbang:

OUCH!
I did that first time out too with a similar set up
Very hurtful on the pocket book

Last one I built, I used a 1/6 grave digger body from a new bright toy
Left The sound in it. was pretty funny till I whacked the throttle. did wheel stands for 50'

if that part was for me.. its just the little arm/collar combo piece i need to replace to get back to flight attempts... i dont know if that aluminum t25 one cb posted earlier would actually work or not.. when i was looking at the specs on them things before they seemed alot bigger than what was in it...

That horn that I showed was for a servo ,that was before I knew what you need!

You will need a nose gear horn ,which dustybumpers mentioned to check Dubro's products earlier in the thread.
Dubro is a leading company that makes aircraft hardware ,an they have
those nose gear horns in any size!

You will need to know the size of the nose gear you have ,weather it
be 4mm ,5mm or 1/16 or 1/8 size!....YelloThumbUp

That looks like 5 mm........ Best to put a measure stick on it
I think he has one of those fancy micrometer mojamy ones......
smilieeatndrink
 
the inside of the collar converted from in to mm came to just shy of 2mm.. was like 1.9775

LOL, wrong kind
I have the shed stuffed full of cars, planes, and choppers.
People loose parts and pieces, sell cheap at the flea market. I buy it up, repair, and put the stuff back together.

Mo money mo money mo money

All I need is Mo time...........
 
speaking of time and money...

Got the new rotors on. Cant wait to see how it does going down the road now. hopefully fixes the bottle of rocks sound i was getting...

That's purdy!!!!!!

I bet a drilled duelly rotor cost some buck er oos
 
shame they wont stay that way... theyll eventually start to rust...

unfortunately Summit's brand didnt have any for the rear from them... but wasnt too bad on the pocket book... sure the others would have if id looked.. but dont need to replace those ones yet...

The big difference will be in the rain pulling a trailer. there will be a lot more stopping power.

You will see less dust on the wheels too

Not having much luck on your plane project. everything so far is a lot bigger.
I'll keep looking

actually the exact opposite has been my experience... least it has been on the stang.. use to go a month before seeing the dust show up on its rims.. then when i went to ceramic pads and cross drilled/slotted rotors i get maybe a week before i see it... sure the truck will be the same way

no worries... im usually too busy doing other things to try and fly it when im down there.. that or its far too windy lol

Ceramic don't stop a load as well, not sure what your doing with your truck
They do last longer tho
