man 6x6 cross-rc

Some new kind of vehicule on RC4ON!

Even if they are not vintage, Scales cars are also a hobby of mine and I want to share those ones on website.

This is a Man 6×6 from Cross-rc a newborn chinese manufactured. It’s a permanent locked six wheel drive without speed gearbox. Delivered as a kit but some parts are assembled like the transfer case and axle. The light kit, the motor are included.

The manual is well detailed but there is no translation.

The transfer case is epicyclic.

It’s a ladder type frame chassis.

The suspension look like the real one.

Follow the manual and you will obtain this in few hours.

The body take times many more. You should assemble all the parts with glue like a model kit.

The kit is sold as a military truck. But I’d rather to do something different.

A lot of work, some stickers and scale accessories, and here it is, a Truck from the Breslau Rally.

All the suspension parts are reduction of the real Man 6×6. You apreciate the work of them when the truck  climb a rock. The wheel travel is not overstate as a crawler or rock racer.

The tire looks scale but lake of grip. They are not sticky as those we found as aftermarket tires. You take your time when you drive,  to not damaging the body. This one is pretty weak and will not support rollover as a lexan body.

This heavy truck is fantastic, looks like a real one when you drive it. This Man climb everywhere if you keep in mind its 1:12 scale.

Kyosho Ultima 1987 WC Inspiration

Kyosho Ultima World Championship 1987

Kyosho produced the Ultima in 1987. But the same year, during the World Championship, Joel Johnson drive a prototype which inspired my restoration.

A link to the WC Ultima from Studio68 : Here

An article about the world 87 in a french magazine:

The beginning started from a chassis and a sheet of epoxy. I don’t remember how this chassis came to me. It look like Ultima Pro’s chassis cut to reduce the width.

Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

Before this result I worked many hours to fill multiple holes with tamiya cement and painted all in black. Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

The upper deck gauge.

Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

I found a Kyosho ball differential for Ultima as NOS and decide to put onto the transmission. The original gear was good but this Option House  is the cherry on cake.

Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

Notice, they is no differential drive ring. The balls are retained just by the outdrives.

Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

I also add Kyosho Gold dampers

I dyed CRP wheels in orange

And this is how the buggy look after few weeks.

Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

I don’t like the kyosho steering. The servo saver look to weak. I rather like to change it with a bellcrank from an 1984 RC10.

I swap all the Kyosho links for Team Associated links, I’m an RC10 addict!

Kyosho Ultima Worlds 1987 Inspiration joel johnson

The upper deck is in place, the battery is put in the chassis length. All Futaba electronic is periodic, like the AYK magnum motor.

And the dream came true:

I’m like Joel Johnson, a Futaba Magnum radio in hand, testing my brand new kyosho prototype.  I climb the podium, all the trims are adjust and…

Go!

The buggy started in a straight line like a rocket  The kyosho ball differential is very smooth.

The first corner came too fast, I don’t have the time to brake. Amazing! the car turn without overstreer, the rear drivetrain is glue to track. The steering is very precise, “thank you” RC10!

A big jump put the car to the air and the fantastic gold dampers do the job better than I ever hope. The light chassis is well balance.

I make the perfect lap at each time but my Sanyo 1200 Nicd decided to stop, It is empty. The Ayk 360 Magnum turn like a charm during 6 minutes.

What a beautiful moment.

6000 Team Associated Original RC10 1984

Here my RC10 from 1984 refurbished in 2013 before the re-release announcement.

Everyone know the name RC10, everything was writing about it. The only thing to retain from this buggy, the most important :

‘It revolutioned the RC market. It is the father of all modern 2wd off-road chassis. This buggy is a legend !’

MRC Bullit EP

MRC was a French manufacturer in the 80’s. The Bullit was design by Jean Michel Claudel. We had the chance to contact him in 2012 for an interview about his buggy.

RC4ON: “Jean-Michel, when did you get the idea to build this car ?”
JMC : “During may or june 1979”

RC4ON: “How to develop this kind of project ?”
JMC: “I used a minimum of tools and spent a lot of time behind the workbench. A lathe machine operator help me for some parts. Several plans were drawn and many tests during races at Martigue (France) reach to the final car”

RC4ON: “Prior to joining MRC, you worked at Micro Racing a Swiss RC company. Why did you not designed the Bullit in this company ?
JMC: “It was the time for me to find a kind of independence. My ideas were more appreciated by MRC, which wanted to produce a new range of cars for the market. It was a challenge, because MRC had the plan to work on 1:12 scale on-road EP car. They were not ready to include off-road buggy in there range.”

RC4ON:”Is the name “Bullit” a reference to the film with Steeve McQueen ?
JMC:”Absolutely, but there is two ‘T’ for the movie Bullitt. Moreover I was strongly inspired by ‘The love bug’ from Disney for the body.”

RC4ON:”You were far from imagining that the bullit would have such success?”
JMC:
“Today I’m well aware. 35 years later, we are still talking about the Bullit. At the beginning, I worked hard for its success and MRC distributors network were contribute too. In France they were race dedicated to this car, many beginners started into rc hobbies with a Bullit and I’m particularly proud.”

RC4ON:”Thank you very much Jean-Michel”

 

The bullit were mostly nitro engine, but this is a rare electric version with genuine motor and mechanical speed controller.

3067 Kyosho Progress

3067 kyosho progress 06

The Kyosho Progress was release by Kyosho during 1984. It  was the first four wheels drive with four wheels steering RC buggy of history. And it  was also the first 4wd from the manufacturer.

A kyosho scorpion gearbox is modify to accept a chain extended to a front gearbox without differential. There is one-way bearing into each rim to do the job.

Kyosho use only one damper to the front with torsion bar as a spring, which is particulary difficult to set for a smooth damping.
