tt-01 9.6v first bash

body wasn’t wide enough to fit over the wheels.

so i just gave up on the idea and quickly slashed open the wheel archs

High mounted it for the high speed off road rally look.

And went and had a little fun! i love the handling, steering is worth nothing it’s all done on the throttle, the diffs are wide open so it’s defeated by pebbles, crap got every where, needs a protective tub, even with a larger 9.6v battery pack wedged in there on it side high the handling wasn’t really affected mostly i think because the tyres are so rock solid and lacking in grip, some longer shock and proper steering joints will improve the whole car lending it a more scale dirt rally look to the handling.

I did the wheels better by running the marker over them while running the engine, much better looking (i’ll get pics some other day)

Only thing annoying me now is the remote, the one on the left is working fine but it’s tiny and my finger can fall off the brake trigger, the carisma one just glitches for no reason. Maybe the guts can be transferred?

Saw an rmx250 on gumtree the other day, nearly had a bikgasam, would it be better than a gsxr1100?

tt-01e rc and cbr6 fix up

So the tt-01e kit turned up in the post finally, just after i kinda gave up on meccano thing, still might see the light of day some time in the summer ya never know.

Didn’t take any pics while putting it togther, too busy following instructions for once.

Done!, rock hard tyres and blackened rims with a permenant marker

One of the white one’s was bent and all the other rims had glued on rally block tyres, so my single chrome wheel went on.

Want to put on the scooby body but i figured that I’d be crashing and bashing anyway so I started with a body i don’t care for, think I’ll channel the body down 2cm’s and raise the front arch to clear the wheel. the rear will be over the wheel much like an extreme touring car.

Definition of a well used tyre. Got my damn moneys worth I tells ya.

170 width conti tyre went in fine, it might rub the right hand side of the hugger a bit will find out if it ever rolls again.

Dinner time!

I must admit the for a while there during the snow I was thinking of spending the insurance money on a van. But I’m better now, gsxr1100 and while I’m on that the cbr should get a turbo.

RC meccano

Feelin rusty sitting here waiting out the crap weather, needed to build something.










Suspension? we don’t need no stinkin suspension!.



needs a few bits:

hi-tec servo saver

better motor (locked diff needs power)


gotta find ma fast battery’s (there red don’t know how i have missed ’em)

better get on the bay of e and sort it!

actually maybe i should clean up the room first swmbo will be back soon…

One more thing, nascar fiberglass bodies are cheap, bit long at 108″ wheelbase but might do the job over the jago chassis.
