Default Slow Down Turbo!!!!!

Mr. Stu....I don't even know what to say. You make it look easy. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I can tell you that I made it to the ford store today and measured some frame rails and they are straight as an arrow. They are basically 3"x10" channel. I'm gonna make my rails out of .250x1" flatbar. I hate to even ask yet but do you have an idea of the overall length of the body? I also checked out the way the leaf springs are mounted. They mount right along the outside of the rails. It won't have much articulation and I hope I get that "jouncing" motion like it's big brother. I better get to work. What if I mounted a counter weight to another motor so that when it takes off it vibrates a little like the big un"s. That might be a little odd though. Great job Stu...I will not call this my project anymore. It will be a joint effort if I contribute something.lol

You mean like those shakers they put into the Tractor Trucks? That could be pretty cool...

CC you could always pick up a tamiya mfu for a semi they make the truck shake when it runnin. plus the diesel sound should be right at home on a rig like this.
whats your plan for leaves you gonna do a big flat stack like the real one or use jugg springs?

I can measure what I got, but I haven't made the grille yet. And I think the hood might be a little short, my first attempt at a fender wouldn't fit at all.

The shaker would be fairly simple: a 380 motor with the D-shaped weight on it, a cheap speedo, and a Y-harness. Do the setup for the cheap speedo with your throttle trim dialed back, then center it when you set up the one for the motor. Connect the Y-harness. Then your shaker will shake even at "idle"

I think he's Santa and has little elves working for him. Hey Stuclause, would it be too much to ask to sit on your lap and tell you what I want for Christmas?

Okay...since you think it would be cool I will admit that I really want to do it. Here is my thought. Take another lathe motor and hook it up in parallel to the drive motor. I will make a plate to mount the shaker motor directly to the frame solidly. Then I will make a hub with a cross hole for a long 4-40 screw. I will add nuts to the screw untill I get enough shake. What do you think? I figure that when the truck hits some resistance from the object it climbs I will need to increase the throttle to both motors thus sharting the shaking motor. Okay....you can laugh now. I may be thinking "jibberish". What do tou think?

I think you could accomplish the same thing much more simply by doing what Stu suggested, but either way it would work and look insanely cool.

Big Fattys. I want this rig to ride like the real one. I don't know diddley about leaf springs but I saw a set on ebay from an F350 High Lift kit and it looks like there are enough in there to make some pretty hefty packs. Any suggestions?

Can you open up your brain...I want to dig around in there a bit for answers I haven't come up with questions for yet. I happen to have an extra speedo and I can round up a 380 pretty easy.

We can mount it up on end in the bed and when it hits a bump it will kinda "wag" around. Okay....I'm gonna stop right there. I will steal a couple of my son's toy dirt bikes. Have you seen those things people hang from their reciever hitches? I am taking orders for CW-1's. If you have questions about the CW-1's PM me or stu, we might be able to help you out.

I think I have a couple 380's laying around. If I put a 15 turn in there for the shaker will I go faster?
