Also, do you have tire height and axle witdh on the m35 yet? I had an ebay scam shutdown the one i had coming.
Frizzy, as ALWAYS, thanks fir the help.

No sir I don't have that info. As of this time, I've yet to start building either of those kits.

I've heard others that have said the same thing about that seller. I guess I was one of the lucky one's that actually got the merchandise that was ordered. I'm sorry that this happened to you folks.

The HobbyCo bankruptcy has really messed EVERYTHING up! I went to the LHS today to try & acquire some square brass tubing, brass sheets, brass "C" Channels, as well as some more brass tubing. I need to acquire this stuff fir the Weyerhaeuser log truck build. I'm on a first name basis with the LHS owner. We talked fir several minute today about the bankruptcy, & how it's affecting the hobby supplies. He CAN;T order K+S brass stock no more. His supply chain was through a HobbiCo Company, Great Planes. Since K+S WON'T ship to Great Planes fir now, he'd have to place an order of at LEAST $1,000.oo to place an order directly with K+S. Even some parts fir RC trucks, & cars he's NOT able to order. Even Tacoma RC Raceways (The other LHS that has the indoor track, AND hosts the National Indoor Series of races) is having troubles finding parts. I guess that tomorrow, after work, I'll have to hit Evilbay, &/or Amazon to try & scrounge up enough materials that I can get started on this build. I tried Home Dumpster, & Lowes today, but they DON'T have brass stock that is as small as I am needing.

Hydraulic help needed. I plan to build another dump truck, but this one will have hydraulics to dump it. I don't know a lot about hydraulic units. If I run the Hydraulic pump from an ESC, (Obviously we have to) do I need a valve to make the box operate, or can I just run the pump fwd/rev to control dump hoist up/down?

IF I must use a valve, I was thinking about this one.

Problem is, it has 4 connection ports, but the hydraulic cylinder ONLY has 2 ports.

You should look for a complete setup. In the end itís not more expensive than getting individual parts. Magom is generally cheaper. Then you have Ledu and up to Premacon.

No need for a valve Skeeter. Check out these kits.

I though I was buying a complete kit. When I bought the one I have now, I knew nothing at all about 1/14, &/or 1/16th scale hydraulics.

Thanks guys fir the help.

Didn’t catch that you already had bought a system. Do you know the brand? If it’s originally dedigned without a valve, it shoud work with any ESC that’s support fwd/rew. Brush/ brushless is then the only question.

It's a LESU HYDRAULIC KIT. I don't have pics of it. Semi Joe on EvilBay has a few pics of it. Here's one of his pics. Mine is exactly the same unit, sorry it's a SMALL picture.

If the cylinder has only one fitting then iTS
A forward to fill and reverse to empty setup
Like my super dumper. If there are two fittings
Then you need a valvebody to Chang flow directions

I'll have to dig it out, & see how many connections it has. It was a long time ago I bought it. According to the Evilbay purchase history, I bought it in late 2016.

SORRY the pics are so large. I accidently posted them NOT realizing that they were the LARGE sized pictures, rather then the MEDIUM sized.

I got some goodies in the mail today! The 8 new cheapo ESC units, they arrived me. Also was the final brass stock I need to begin to build the log trucks headache rack. The nuts for the 2MM scale bolts that were acquired from RC4WD a while back came too. The bolts were direct from RC4WD, the nuts weren't available, so I ordered them from China. The local stores, Fastenall, & Tacoma Screw Products DIDN'T offer anything below 3mm.

As soon as I get the logging truck as far along as I can go with it..............Still trying to source materials for the trailer build, then I'll be moving onto the New Bright Firetruck! Frizzy, I know that'll make you happy.

I got the motor mounts back form the machine shop today for the 4200XL excavator this afternoon.
unnamed 141 by Anthony Kalnoski, on Flickr
I sent BOTH mounts, & one motor to the shop, so they knew exactly what I was wanting done. When they came back, they were BOTH on the motor, & secured with the set screws. They said they packaged them together like that so that the set screws WOULDN'T get lost. That was thoughtful of them, & a nice touch of customer service too. The 4200XL Excavator is now back together again, with Soyland Industries upgraded motors in it
unnamed 137 by Anthony Kalnoski, on Flickr

Shortly after I got home with the motor mounts, my phone rang. A feller that had a broken pop-up canopy called me about a Craigslist ad he had posted for it. He was offering it to anyone that wanted it for scrap. The legs on it are about perfect size for the telescoping metal that I need to build the logging trucks trailer. I rushed over to meet him, & pick it up. FRIZZY THANK-YOU sir for teaching me how to think OUTSIDE the box. Before I found that, I had tried EVERY source I can think of to acquire this stuff. Either it was way too large diameter wise, or had WAY too much slop (like 1/4 of an inch) when the pieces were inserted together. I had been to Metal Supermarkets as well as Onlinemetals.com (they have a branch near enough to me I drove there in person) Evilbay, ALL 8 of the LHS, from Hobby Lobby, to the small mom & pop ones, & even the arts & craft stores in the area..............NOBODY had it

Change in plans! I know that I said the New Bright fire engine would be the next project, BUT.....The Facebook group Pacific Northwest Scale Truck & Equipment (PNWSTE is hosting the next gathering on 3-10-18. There AREN'T any dozers but my lil Bruder D4 conversion. I'll be putting the Bruder D11 dozer at the top of the project list. I need to get it done for the meet. The D4 just isn't big enough to keep up with my 4200XL, now that I got er going again, let alone the OTHER 4200XL that'll be there too! The other one has been extensively modified, painted, and transformed into a Link Belt machine.

Before I got the call that the motor mounts were done fir the 4200XL, I cut the cord!
unnamed 134 by Anthony Kalnoski, on Flickr

unnamed 135 by Anthony Kalnoski, on Flickr

Then I had to open it up & take a peak inside
unnamed 136 by Anthony Kalnoski, on Flickr

I've got a couple ideas how/what to do for converting this...............but they'll have to wait for another month or two. I HAVEN'T forgotten about the Subaru WRX, just had other projects in the works.

Sounds like you've been busy!
The excavators looking good with the better motors.

Come on, now you're just trying to flatter me. I just like poking you to work on stuff and not be afraid to try doing weird things with it. Very few here build straight kits, or leave them stock for long, so it takes some extra creativity. It's a little more fun to see what was scrounged to look and work right than seeing an unboxing pic. "If it's stupid, but it works, it's not stupid"

You set up a meet, and arranged a venue to let everybody go play and be entertaining, that's way more impressive than 'some guy on the internet said i should do a fire truck.'

Yeah, free the WRC! Ya know, that's a really nice looking Impreza...
I'd probably suggest doing the subaru before moving on to the ladder truck, since there's gonna a lot less going on in the scooby.
