The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
brad, thank you!!! tim, thanks but, i'm sure they got nothing to worry about! hehe. bob, the stagger is on purpose. sort version is, it keeps the the tire in the beam longer and helps shorten the track. left side is always leading, right always trailing. hope this helps.
i do not own or use a cnc. i did use the bridgeport to remove large chunks, you could easily do that with a good band saw. much of the work was done with a die grinder and some good carbides. i literally made a left and right side profile of the body on self adhesive art paper printed on a regular HP printer. pieced it together, roughed it in, and started grinding away. MAKE SURE TO WEAR A RESPIRATOR OR MASK OF SOME SORT! you will make ALOT of DUST. heavy sand paper(80 grit for roughing) and sanding boards will also be needed. you can also make small chunks of the body and glue it together. stuff glues really well.
john, no problem....glad you're hangin' out!! tyrone, like john, tim , chris, paul...etc. you too are an inspiration for all here!! dave, glad i could make a work week start out well. well, the front is done steering is complete, wheels are on......DONE!
an inspirational shot........ i need to get this done.
i have used ren-shape. great stuff to work with. while it's soft enough to sand an file by hand it's dense enough to machine. the stuff i use is 440. here's a project i started a while back but never really finished. '41 willy's pro mod. 1-8 scale.
