View Full Version : Kyosho Pajero 1:9

I'm not start building a truck, I'm just doing some mods to an old truck to improve off-road use without the pain to find spare parts. The idea was to lock all 3 diffs, but this would end inbreaking them, so the project is build new locked diffs using easy to find gears. The truck has same front and rear diffs. I found that Tamiya TG10 diff gears could work, I just have to trim them and reduce diameter to 32mm. I then built a gear mount, it took me 3 times to have the right one. A similar will be built for front.
I wanted to use both original axales, but once into the diff mount I found they are not centntered, so I will have to find an one piece steel axale.

One weak point of rear axale is it breaks easily. This truck came with the axale broken, so I made a brass tube and glued it inside to reinforce.

Next I went in the central diff. This diff turns by a belt from main spur gear.
I bought aluminium pulleys and reinforced belts since this will be a weak point.

Again I made a brass shaft for the pulley, then I had to make collars for ballbearings since the shaft is 6mm diameter and ballbearings are 8mm inside.

The central unit assembled.

In the next days I will make front locked diff, then I will rebuild main spur gear with new pulley. I'm thinking to add a 3 speed gearbox now that they are easy to find. But this will be a second stage work. I really want to trst all my gears before going on with more mods.
I love Kyosho 1:9 trucks and I'd like to run them without troubles.

Stay tunes

I love those old kyosho rigs too. it's a shame they didn't get more popular because there's hardly any around now :(

very cool work.... :chug: :chug:

should be killer once its done, plus it will be the coolest 1:9th kyosho cuz you wont be afraid to bash with it.... :chug: :nice:

I must admit when I saw the title I had a brain fart and thought it was 1.9" wheels not 1:9th scale and was gonna move it to the 1.9 forum.... :lol:

Thank spoon !
Yesterday I made a one piece brass axale for rear.

Did anybody ever use a brass axale ? Does it bend easily ?


09-02-2005, 02:48 AM
If it will bend just rebuild it :lol:
I don't wanna waste my time telling you the ususal boring compliments ;)

BTW where are the overall pics of the rig?

09-02-2005, 02:57 AM
I don't have pics because there is no 'overall'.
It is all in pieces


09-02-2005, 07:07 AM
So take pics of a box with all the pieces inside it and you'll have overall pics :lol:

I'll give it a try.
Maybe put in the ROM

I dunno about brass - I'm certain it will be tougher than alu, but no idea how it compares to steel.....best bet is try it, worst than can happen is you need to make one out of steel if it fails....

keep us updated as it comes together.... :chug:

Hi guys.
It's 1am here and I just came up from my basement.
I assembled it for my first test run tomorrow afternoon.
I ran it in my garage, couldn't resist to see how it runs.
Too much fast, I left his stock motor in
Tomorrow I'll see

They surely look better :banana:

damn, that thing looks rugged, like it could be jumped off a cliff and only suffer superficial damage! (kids, don't try this at home :lol: )

Hi guys.
Yesterday I made my first offroad test.
It failed

rear bevel/gear mesh wasn't right and I've heard terrible noise from that.

Have to check it again

That sucks :(
Hope it's a minor problem.
