cammok5, thats the plan however the train stuff require 14 volts and i need to make it work with less. i was thinking of using a glow plug but the smoke liquid might snuff it out. just need an enclosed coiled resistor that is small and will get up to 200 degrees. haven't started on it yet, i'm having too much fun driving it.

Nichrome wire coil off of a 9v might be hot enough to make it not matter if it gets too hot. Not sure how safe if would be, but might work.

in U.S. millimeters or euro millimeters?

just kidding! somewhere around 115mm (they are pretty worn out). about 3-4mm shorter than a geolander.

that hitech servo box was an awesome idea, is it completely waterproof, like you can suberge it completely or does it just keep the rain out?

if you tape around the seam, it will be almost completely water proof. not sure how well the silicone job around the wires is but so far, w/out tape, it has kept all the water out. i went through a pretty deep stream crossing the other day and no water inside. tape would be reassuring though.

I think I read that model railroaders use mineral oil and a heating element to make smoke. Maybe you could use the heating element from one of those battery operated coffee warmers?

They use smoke bombs, I don't think that'll work here.

Has anyone tried using the smoke machine form the Jesse James Sliverado? I takes awhile to heat up but if you could find a way to get it to work,it could look good. Just my .02.

This thing keeps getting better and better.

Sweet rig. I really like the lights and the driver.

The only thing thats missing to make it totally scale is the half rusted away bed.
