Arrow ORCRC Article: How to build a TLT crawler.

Hi folks,

I recently built up a TLT for a friend, and took some pictures along the way. I hope some of the information proves useful!

http://www.orcrc.com/tltbuildup.htm

Enjoy!
-Ryan

ok man i was just wandering, with the 6-32 all thread and the 3/16 brake line did you have any problems puting the brakeling/tube over the all thread? im in the process of making links and im having to thread the all thread into the brake line. i was wondering if this was the same for you or i have something wrong?

thanks, Big john

The brakline doesnt go over the 6/32, I use 3/16 Aluminum tubing to cover the allthread. I only use brakeline for exterior tubing stuff. (Roll cages, etc.)

Thanks!

Any chance you could do a raw parts list from somewhere like MCMaster?

I never can find raw materials like all thread and aluminum tubing in the suburbs of NYC. Just no market for fine machine parts like that.

Great job rb.

Is there any play in that setup?
Is it over kill to toss in 3 extra gears?

The cover wont go on with 2 or 3 extra gears, only one extra like in the pic.

there is a tiny bit of play, but not much.

Excellent idea, clean and nice. I JB'd my first and then came across this idea. Did the 2nd axle this way, thanks.

Do you have any neat idea similar to this for the Pede tranny?
