I was thinkin' about doin' this to my choas getting a custom motor mount cnc'ed maybe so i can fit both 540, 380, 280 motors, kinda radical as i see it but i want options drunken

i was just wondering if anyone had any imput on this, i figure i keep the stock drivetrain, and sterring set up the rest gets re desinged or remounted or something, any imput would be great

Cool, sounds like you got some work lined up for yourself! Be sure to post pics, and if you want, share the boat in the site chat section Wink

Just don't shred the gears apart. Sounds like a great idea but trying to fit all those diff kind of motors is gonna be a little hard.

yeah i know its still a concept with all the motors, i may just get 1 mount and a few diffent plates i can put on it,

and i may lock the center and i'm thinkin' now/next diffs, if i can fit um, or fenagleing a slipper...

yeah that was my thinks but i've heard stuff about the diffs, but hey the cost a $2 for a new set so why not, my problem not is finding the right pinion, and then i just gotta design the mount i got a CAD software from http://www.emachineshop.com/index.htm, it's completly different then the schools that i could've done this in 1 hour, but it watched the tutruail vid affraid and i get the software now, it just has less buttons, that are less specific, and more stuff you need to do thru a menu but no, multi 3d views in the main screen ahh well

We used to have a full machine shop but that was before cad/cam stuff became the norm. We could do almost aything the computers do now...ah, well, just a lot slower. It was fun though running the milling machine or lathe by hand. You had to be really carefull, but when you go it right it was great.

My school is luckty to hae computers, let alone cad software. I used to have alibre and I loved it. But the trial wore off nad now I hv=ave e machine shop, its actually quite simplistic and easy.

Hey you've mentioned emachine shop a couple of times...is that emachineshops.com? I tried searching it and found a link but the site didn't come up. If it is I'll try again latter, sounds like it could be cool.

this'll get you thier

http://www.emachineshop.com/index.htm

no new up dates that i can post but i do know that removing the motor mount may or may not be easy and i'm playing with a base that mounts to the current holes then giving me the ability to change out the vert plates, for different motor sizes,

not really, cuz the motors, about the same lenght as the engine, and with so i should be able to fit it, the batt, esc and reciver i'can figure out, i'll probally go with a sideways esc i may try to fenagle a stick pack on (standard sub-c for you mini guys) or have to go mini or somethin i haven't thought too much bout that... though doing more thinking' im gunna make a wood mount as a rought prototype, something i learned is very good to do that you engineerring comp. (i'ld thank it more if the school didn't take the $500 and we slit it among the 4 of us...)

I would put the esc/ reciever where the tank are, but a custom mount may be neeeded for the battery.

Looking at it I see that you culd put the battery strapped in sideways in place of the pipe.

yeah but that would really screw up wight and what would i put on the other side, the radio box will go, and then i'll leave the serring servo where it is, but other than that,

i think i'll make a deck set up and have the reciver under the ESC
and i may have to run the mini packs, Crying or Very sad now i can't use my EP's...
