Has anyone used this? I'm curious if it worked well and if you have some videos or pics of it in action? I'm a little concerned about durability of the tractor since it doesn't have trip springs.
Pawls are the half moon woodruff keys yes? I do want to use this tractor, if I just let it sit there won't be much point in me owning it even though it will look good it will take up space I don't have.Only weak point I see is your drive pawls, if you hit something hard you may possibly break one. Other than that it was made to push snow and dirt so as long as you know it's limitations and dont expect it to do the work of a tubeframe you'll be ok I would think
I know that feeling - they are expensive! Haha, none of that RTR filth, I started with that when I was a kid but now I do scale stuff. I am thinking of selling it all though and just sticking with RC planes and tractors as it is expensive to run them and since they are scale builds I don't like to beat on them. Here are a couple I've recently done. The Jeep wasn't done in the pic but who am I kidding, they're never "done".I was heavy into rc at one point I found the weak spot was letting the wife take the controls, she can break anything! I agree with you something will always give way, but I like rc cars these aren't miniature and were built for this. What kind of cars did you build, don'ttell me the almost ready to drive stuff, tthat's not rc?
