Piston Series: Deadhead
About this creation

This is the side of the car. You can see one of the two drive motors, one on each side. And the blower on the front. It's part of the steering system, but that can you see later. And the car is 4x4 but the wheels aren't the same size. So I had to make an almost impossible gear combination. And you'll see that later, too.


This is the front of the car. Her can you see the blower too, and why this car is called Deadhead. Because of the black mask at the very front. Maybe you can see the return-to-center steering system, it's a modified version of the that Sheepo has made. And the huge exhausts at the side of the car. Yeah, and the headlights, but that's not very special.

This is one of the two exhausts.


And this is the rear of the car. It's not very special, but you can see the rear lights. The curved back is just two flexible axles and some beams, not very hard to make. The yellow cover at the top is the cover fro the battery box. You've got to remove the whole piece

This is the cover you've got to remove.

And it will look like this, if you've removed the cover.


This is the top of the car, the roof is just a couple of axles, but it looks cool to me. And if you take a good look, you'll see the return-to-center steering system. Just next to the vertical grey axle.


This is the underside of the car. You can see the drive train and the impossible gear combination, it's a 16 teeth gear with a 8 teeth gear, there's a little friction , but not so bad. The rear axles are strengthens with track wheels from the excavator. Without those wheels the car won't drive. I don't know why.

And her are some pics:









And a video:


More cars coming soon

Quoting Ape Fight A fun looking RC car. And 4x4 too - that's really tricky! I'm not sure how it drives with different sized wheels front and rear (and no centre diff'), but it seems OK in the video. Nice job : )
It drives very well, actually. And BTW, I don't have any diffs. But I'm gonna buy the new off-roader and the unimog soon. And in the text I said that I'd made a gear combination, wich make the different wheels run the same distance.

Quoting Chris lopo great moc hotrod i think its freaking sweet but i think you have a problem there with your driver side rear tire going on, in the vid it was wobbling pretty bad
Yeah, i know, the tire is not mounted very good on the rim.
