BigGrin Hi All

Pack 5 is here, the first thing to do is to make up the steering servo linkage just a case of adding the ball ends to a rod by screwing them together and then adding the ball headed screws. Next we get the chassis plate nothing more to do on this stage. Now we make up a rear hub carrier then we get more parts for the rear diff but its not assembled yet but instead we start assembling the front bumper and frame to the chassis plate. Lastly more rear diff parts but no asssembly as yet, instead we make up parts for the right rear hub carrier. Everything went together without any difficulty and now awaiting the next pack.

Regards

AndyCool

BigGrin Hi All

Pack 6, The first set of components are for the rear bumper and saved until later you also get the fuel line but that will go on later in the build too. The next parts are the servo holder and drive belt tensioner . The tensioner is easily put together and fitted along with the fuel tank onto the servo holder which in turn is attached to the chassis plate. Next its the intermediate drive shaft assembly which is easily made up by following the instructions this assembly is then attached to the chassis plate.

First and second gears are next along with the clutch all are attached to the main drive shaft. The third tyre is next to be made up and finally the R/C box and antenna are assembled again this has not been fitted to the chassis as it will be fitted later.

Regards

AndyCool

Hi All

Pack 7, Made up the right rear drive shaft and stub axle then the right front arm. Next its the snazzy exhaust, make sure the silicon gaskets are seated correctly although I will be reassembling mine using silicon sealant aswell as the gaskets before its first run as the oil in the fuel will get everywhere if the muffler leaks anywhere from a failed gasket. Also my screws for attaching the manifold to the exhaust were slightly too long filing 1 to 2 mm off the ends cured this problem although anyone else building the car may not need to do this. Next the brake was made up and attached to the rear drive shaft and lastly another shock was assembled.

More soon

Andy

Hi All

Double update heres pack 8, made up the steering and rear suspension tie rods a servo was also supplied but not fitted as yet. The front left suspension was completed in this part and attached to the chassis. Made up the steering servo saver assembly [ saves the servo from striping its gears hopefully lol]. Now its time for the air filter assembly I did not add the oils as it will be added when the final assemble happens. Last of all the right fake brake disc's were added to the right side hubs the left ones will be fitted later.

More soon

Andy

BigGrin Hi All

The Huracan has been finished and run in and is one fast baby at full bore on the straightDrool Love Drool Drool LOL Laugh Blink .

Running it in was straight forward I just followed the instructions and all went well. First tank was stop start ,second tank went straight through without stopping and all runs after that has improved the performance.Drool Drool

I have added some pics of the finished car outside before another run. Must say this thing goes and is great fun.Drool Love Drool

A fantastic looking finished result. I really love the exhaust system on this and how it represents a real exhaust rather than the large ugly things that are normally present in nitro cars Cool
