With the gear ratios you've got in the transmission what are your scale speeds?

I think you said you tried to stay close to the original ratios in the transmission, but the difference between your electric motor's max RPM and a diesel's max RPM could be why you need more reduction.

With the current gear ratio top speed in scale 1/1 is around 25 mph. The real one can reach about 30 mph.
The electric motor should reach 5,500 rpm, while the diesels do 2,100 rpm.

I never thought I would get (into) electronics, but so far it seems to work out.
In the past weeks i worked on all the electric connections and finding space for the electronics, etc. Although the Euc has a huge hood, I had to try various setups in order to find the right setup that fits inside the hood and cab without being too visible.

I bought a 8 channel system. One channel for the speed control, 2 channels for the 4-speed transmission, one for the on-off-on switch for the tipping motor, one for the on-off-on switch for the driving motor and one for the steering servo.

I found the right paint for the Euc. It looks decent, the color is very nice but needs a second coat and I didn't buy enough!! That means waiting.

That truck is a beast.... I can't get over the skill and attention to detail some of the builders have here....and this is just another great example.

It took me just under 2 years to build this truck. It was a lot of fun. The transmission and the controls were the most challenging, but after a lot of tinkering it all works and it is fully remote controlled. The right stick controls the acceleration and the steering, the left one is for the 4-speed power-shift transmission. There are 2 other switches, one for forward, neutral and reverse, the other for dump hold and lower.
I found the right kind of spray paint and I am very pleased with the result. I still need to add some decals and I will also prop up the front suspension. The powerpack is quite heavy!

That looks absolutely amazing!!!

Are there going to be covers for the passenger door esc, and right frame servo.

I still can't get over the work you put into the transmission, and would love to see some videos when you're ready

Glad you got this done Kerst. I guess with the big shut downs everywhere gave you time to work on something fun.

That looks great! Can't wait to see it loaded, starting out on the flat and then climbing a hill, downshifting on the way up.
