Track trouble, 2mm pin shear on one side & good thing it happened b/c I discovered 2mm pin on other side slid out of place& was carving into gear case





Added 5" cheater boards to the cross dump today. Surprisingly stable, I thought it would wobble from being top heavy... maxxing out the 8wd power to ascend the dirt ramp, lead axle spinning while the other 3 are flexing sidewalls to the max, doesn't show up clearly in the vid.

Been working on a new B50 with a pup this winter. I went with brushed motors in this one, it'll run a little quicker than the old one with brushless.

























The old B50 needed some attention a few weeks ago, had to pull the pump out to tighten the belt.

Hauled a lot of dirt out of the basement last couple months



Used the ol GL to catch the lumps from the screener & pile in the opposite corner for the B50 to haul out later. The tunnel ramp is lil steep for the old GL, plus it only hauls half as much as the B50. Once the 'fines' pile upstairs got wide enough to use the bellydump again, parked the GL & hauled lumps direct with B50.





Last couple days been crushing dirt lumps & rocks





Monster pile of fines

Man I know I'm repeating myself here but it is always so cool to see what you've accomplished with RC power (when possible). I also love seeing the wear on the vehicles since they are being used as 1:1 stuff would be and the wear patterns look like they would on the fullsize stuff.

Always welcome & appreciative of compliments 350tocazilla

Just about done with this adt & pup

I made a valve divider block from brass for the pup







This dump cyl was on the trk, right side... the flexible hose going to the "T" I think I made it a bit too short, box going up/down - changing angles tugging a bit on this fitting broke it loose from the tube. Pipe goes up to top of tube & broke loose from that soldered joint... buffed the paint off, resolder, repaint, put it on pup after dinner today.





Got the box on the pup, put oil to the cyls



This is where the connection is for the pup hyds



Got a leak, hoping I just over tightened the fitting & crushed the seal too much... put on a new fitting with some thread seal... give a couple hrs to set & try it again.



Made up some exhaust pipes from 5/16 Plastruct tube for this adt & the others



This air cleaner is 3D printed, used an 8mm magnet to hold it place for pictures & filming, leave it off during regular use so it don't get so dirty.





And I'm motivated to get busy putting this WA500 wheel loader together next, it's only 4yrs next month that I've had it ...been using it for spare parts on occasion for other models that needed repairs, still missing a couple parts that'll hopefully show up next month.



Degrease the cyls today & paint them yellow
