All right, now it is - time

Got some of the needed parts to go on with the rear end of the Sandrail.

I found that the Scorpion gearbox (actually it is from an Advance with gas motor) would be perfekt for my needs as it is most compact, is made of aluminum, has a full working differential and because of the side mounted and 90 angled input gear shaft I can mount the motor in longitudinal direction and can be fully hidden therefore.

So I started to intigrate the gearbox into the motor block a little. After some rough cutting and filing, the gearbox is in place. Some fine work still necessary. Oil pan and gearbox will be screwed together and there will be no gaps then between. Will cover with styrene or aluminum.

The Gearbox:





Engine in parts:



After rough cutting and filing - a quick mock up:









On its place in the chassis.











Will sit streight once the gearbox is lowered into the chassis. Will have to cut a hole into the chassis plate and attach some mounting brackets for the oil pan.

Hi there!

Thank you for all the nice comments.

@Banana @GottaYota81

the trailing arms and the gearbox are from the Kyosho Cicuit1000 cars (Scorpion, Beetle, Tomahawk, Advance). All these cars share same chassis and the gearbox is from a gas powered Advance. It is special because of the left side gear intake for the gas engine.

The Scorpion:


The Advance:


There will be some changes coming soon. Found another alternative for the V8 Engine....

these vintage RC Cars are from those early days, beg. 80's. Quite rare now. But they were using only aluminum parts for the chassis. Looks very realistic.

Nope. It is again a V8, but a not such an old Ford 427 like I was using so far, but a modern blown V8 Also advantage, it is lighter then the heavy die cast engine block. This was always a headace for me...so much weight at the rear end...this I can reduce now by about 0,3 kg.

Currently there are some very nice aluminum wheels on ebay. Pargu2000 is selling them. They are excellent quality! I just have sold a Tomahawk with such aluminium wheels.
