Default Scale Banshee !!!!

hey guys, i've taken a long hiatus but I have been watching your builds when I can. Anyway i have 2 builds on hold due to lack of funds. But I am expecting a little green very soon. I started getting board and decidied i would teach myself to braze. So I needed a 3rd project.

Heres the plan..

Brushless motor as fast as I can get.
Mini T sized wheels with sand tires out back. (hope they make them that small)
mini t sized in front but may have to narrow them
Mini T servos
full scale custom frame and body
motor cycle chain and sprockets.
not sure about tranny

Should be about 8 or so inches long and about 4.5 wide

And if you haven't figured out what it is i'll give you a pic of what i'm going for. I want this to run when i camp at the beach...Let me know what you think and have you ever seen one of these made? I could use suggestions if anyone has them. Will post some pics tomorrow.....thanks

I'd go 2.2's and 6th scale, and maybe even use a nitro engine. 6th scale you can use a 12" action figure for a rider.

I agree, GO BIG!

Much cooler like that! Also, maybe easier to braze with a larger frame?

Sounds awesome either way!

well guys i didn't get to take any pics (get some tomorrow), but the frame is mostly done with the exception of the mounts i need to braze on... Its actually alot easier to braze than i thought. would have had it all done but i was trying to fab some swing arms up and searched for an hour trying to find some metal sleeves. I'll pick some up tomorrow.

I want to build a trailer and pull it behind my scaler when its done. Thats why I'm doing the small scale. Its going to be around 7" long and 5" wide. The body for my scaler is a 2500 hd silverado 01-02 like my 1:1. unfortunately the body is closer to 1:12 scale.

mojave i entered the contest for the atv, i also started brazing the cage for a mini-t powered sand rail. I'll start a thread for it next week. I'm expecting to have the sand rail ready for sure but the banshee going to be a hard build. But i'm going to give it the old college try and get them both done before the contest is up.

thorsteenster , i thought about doing that because i've got lots of extra nitro crap laying aroung like a fresh 3.3, but the beach i camp on won't alloy us to run nitro/gas r/c cars. plus i'm bored with the nitro and i've alsways wanted that mamba setup that makes the mini t do like 60.

FURAI i'm just using a craftsman self igniting hand held torch with a 14 ounce mapp canister. i borrowed it from my neighbor so i could teach myself to braze.

MOPAR- your my hero. i always wanted a 88 250r and a banshee. i miss riding a ton, i sold my last quad in 95, almost bought another a couple years ago but talked myself out of it. thanks for the offer of the pics, i may take you up on that as i proceed. still a long way off. i'm waiting on a chain, sprockets and transmission. i hope i have room to fit everything... the battery will be the biggest challenge. gonna have to go with a 2 cell for sure. this thing is gonna be small enough to fit in the bed of a 1/10 truck with the tailgate down.
