mini-x project

Posted 04-22-2008 at 03:01 AM by cdog4w
So I started in hobby rc with a mini-x, but sold it long ago when I moved up to an Xray M18 for racing at a local carpet track. It still holds a place in my heart for that reason so I picked up one of the rolling chassis sets from a forum user.

My current plan is to use some Kyosho half-8 electronics that someone donated to me. For body I will go with a hard shell that I think must have come from one of the 1/24 mini-z clones that I got in a trade. So far all I've done is make a front clip for it (the rear is resting on the body posts). Ideally I'd like to do side clips or something similar so I don't have to drill body post holes in the body, but I'm not sure if I will or not yet.

It doesn't look quite right (wheels look too small), perhaps raising it would help?

Servo mounting/linkage will be the toughest, I'm hoping to find some micro heli links that will work for it.
