Also a point to n00bs is: motors.

We use motors intended to run tiny lathes, that happen to be "540" (standard rc industry) size. They range from 35 down to 100 turn.

*The turn of the motor is the number of winds of wire it has around it's rotor*

The bigger the number, the slower they go.

Yes, SLOW

Don't ask a "Scaler" "How fast does it go?" or "Do a doughnut" . They will probably poke you in the eye and throw you off what ever they are driving their model over.

We try to make our speed scale too. Most people's scalers peg out at about 5 or 6 mp/h. That's "Scale".

*Scale - The division factor models are built to. Most of our builds are 1/10th scale, so that means they are 1/10th the size of the real thing*

So, a 1/10th model doing 6 mp/h is scale of one doing 60. Fair enough speed for a fourby in the bush.

Here's a note for n00bs....
Don't Necro-Post!
Look at the date on the last post made in the thread you are reading.
If it was made more than a month ago you should probably leave it.
Only the OP (original poster) should post in his or her own old thread, to update it, for example.
You may be reading it for the first time, but it's annoying for the old hands to see an old thread woken up with a "Cool Truck" comment.

Though, generaly forum's prefer you post in an existing thread, we don't need 7 threads on "Have you seen the new Tyco ZOMFGPWNEDBBQ???".

Though, asking a (well thought out) question about componentry or process is acceptable, I believe.

Thanks for the speedy answers on the thread size and that link is great. Another question - does the F350 and Hilux axles fit a standard Semi chassis and leaf spring brackets and would the chunky F350 or Hilux wheels/tyres bolt straight on to a standard truck axle e.g. my Globeliner? Thanks in advance.

I'm a noob who is going to break London's advise against necro-posting.

MOA = Motor Over Axle. This is a vehicle that has a motor over each axle, like the Clodbuster.

"Shaftie" = Shaft driven. This is a vehicle that has one or more motors attached to the frame of the vehicle and a transmission/transfer case/both. Driveshafts (one for 2WD, two for 4WD) run from the transmission or transfer case to the axles to provide power.

"Cut and shut" = Cutting tires so that they fit on narrower or smaller diameter wheels. This may involve cutting a slice out of the tire to fit a large tire on a smaller wheel, or cutting the center out of the tread to fit a wide tire onto a narrow wheel.
