Thread: Road grader

    Default Road grader

    This is more fun than it looks. The difference in the way the trucks run on the new part compared to the old is like sweet and sour.
    Instead of having the trucks run around and around aimlessly they will now have a role to play and not only now but also into the future
    The grader is still not done, lots more to do to get it to where I want it.
    Runs tooooo fast and the controls are not smooth enough yet but at least it is a step in the right direction. What a great way to spend Christmas eave

    hope you enjoy the long video as much as I did doing it.

    Cheers Chrisrudy

    Chris, that grader is awesome!. Unbelievable how well it did even on the standard tires. I've attempted to motorize one myself, but the first outcome didn't convince me. Do you have any pictures available of the motorisation?

    by the way, your whole village is brilliant, and so are your vessels and tanks!

    Thats awesome man. Thanks for sharing the vid.
    You've got a cool set up there for sure.

    Are those burnt out looking buildings used for tank battles?

    I'm not exactly sure how that's possible. I just watched every second of your video without blinking. I want this in my life!

    Thank for the encouragement. Sorry but no build photos yet. I used 2 X 2 motor Tamiya hobby gear boxes for the power.
