some tech. data:
2 x 12 V 7 Ah Batteries
4 x mech speed controllers (both ESC are burned at 14,5 Volt )
4 x stock engines
2 x steering servos with more than 100 N/cm, I donīt know the american unit
6 channel heli transmitter
5 x 4cm 1,5inch computer fans, at the moment
1 msc for the waterpump, wich pushes 4 bar 60 psi at 12V

and the whole thing is faster than my stock clod!!

The whole truck runs about half an hour and the water is in a minute empty !


the first idea


the first test without water
- the rotating servo with the yellow gears (the resistant inside is blocked, it stops to rotate if you release the transmitter)
- the servo to rise the hose
- a big ball bearing at the top, to fit the hose
- and a small bearing at the bottom

Thats inside now !

I try to explain:

-1 the msc for the waterpump engine (windscreen and headlight water pump)
-2 reciever 8 channel
-3 with the hose inside
-4 the resistants 200W for driving msc (the orig. busted)
-5 the waterpump, I try to make some better pics
-6 at the bottom the servo with the 4 msc

No, not Armystyle.
I like the Skyline Saftycar painting, itīs complete selfmade. All the Stickers etc. The MAN will get the same paintjob.

I also like "schwarz matt" black with no clear paint on.

The skyline flashers are working like the orig. in the GranTourismo4 game. The MAN will get also white and blue flashers.
