Default Honda 400EX

so a friend at work gave me a toy 4 wheeler r/c that his kid no longer used... flat spots on the tires...covered in dirt and just neglected... being the creative sort that I am I decided to try to make something respectable out of it



digging through the parts boxes I found an old grasshopper that had the chassis snapped in two in front... made a few braces and fixxed the chassis and using a few odds and ends from the parts boxes... a little cleaning and paint and we have this

it was free and turned into a test to see what I could build out of stuff I had layin around... I didn't have to buy anything to make it and I built it in 2 evenings of tinkering... the hardest part was putting the snapped in half hornet chassis back together lol... they always break right at the front shock towers.

Another cool little project KC. I love builds using just whats laying around the shop. Like Micky said it gives me an idea, my son broke his ages ago but I never could get myself to throw it away.. Think we can get a little vid of it in action KC?

i like this project looks cool and different but as i just sugested in another thread to complete i think it needs 2 mini servo's one to steer the bars and one in his neck so the head turns around as he is steering. all hooked in a y harness to the main steering servo? would then be pretty amazing and maybe a few leds for the lights.

Just an idea?

and once completed upload a video and send it to me if you get bored.

thats a good idea and all but not really worth the complexity to make it work because as fast as this is you need as little weight as possible up top... or you'll spend all the time flipping it back over instead of driving it.
