Tamiya Vanquish running again :)

Tamiya VanquishPosted by xilsoe Feb 14, 2008 10:58:52
Not so long ago I found out modern RC Car ESCs usually have build in BEC. This meant that I would be able to eliminate receiver four pack on my old Tamiya Vanquish so I went and got one.
One thing I had to understand was that I could power the receiver through one of the output ports. It also seems that output signals from a receiver hasn't changed for some time. The ESC is working fine with my old receiver smiley
I also went over the car and completed painting it. I couldn't find silver polycarbonate back then when I first build the car. This is more easily available now so I have tried to complete painting it. I am however not competely satisfied with it so now I'll have to try and remove some excess paint as the masking didn't work perfect smiley
I added the Vanquish to RCGalleri last night and it was apperently accepted with 100 acceptance points against 0 rejection points smiley I would call that an A+.
Here is the link to my Vanquish in RCGalleri.dk (Danish): http://www.rcgalleri.dk/html/gal_visbil.asp?ID=20759&ipc=74622
It has been so much fun getting this car running again. I am however not going to run it a lot as it has become a collectors item and spare parts are rare.
I have ordered the last ball bearings that were missing for it so it will have a compete ball bearing set.
