Show Us Your Scaleauto 1/24

Recommended Posts

Hi Mike,

 

That really looks the ducks guts mate - actually received the same decal set today, together with the RedBack set. I got both as I could not decide which one to do - guess the choice is easy now, just hope it turns out half as good as yours.

 

Look forward to seeing it in Sydney.

 

Cheers,

 

Jan

The decals came from Germany with a set of the red back spider ones as well. Patto put similar decals on his site about a week after I ordered these.

Probably just as well you didn't buy from Patto, the sample sheet on his web site has "quattro" spelt wrong.

 

Mike, how did you get the matt black finish?

Hi Guys

 

Another Scaleauto Audi that will be going to Sydney shortly. Don't know if we will run this one or another car that Sammi has prepared. I also have another body for this Audi that I may prefer to get dinged up.

Hey,..is there supposed to be a 'Tow-Hook' at the Front of the Audi ???

 

The car seems to have a Small 'Slot' in what would be an appropriate spot in the front of the car just above the 'Splitter'.

 

I certainly Don't have anything like a 'Tow-Hook' in the Plastic parts or Photo-etched bits.

Only reason I ask, is there Does seem to be 'Tow-Hooks' fitted to some of the other cars I have seen in some of the pics 'posted' on this forum and the Real car Obviously Does have one.

 

Plus,..The other things I am wondering about are whether the Front Number Plate is 'Required' to be fitted to the Grille area of the car?

In the package Kim sent me, I appear to have 2 x Number Plates, 1 x large and 1 x Small,..Not sure Where the Smaller of the Two should actually be fitted,..If at All,..Plus,..it Seems like there are Two 'Wiper Arms', a larger one and a Smaller one,..IS this actually the case?, as from the photos of people's cars I have seen 'posted', only 1 x Wiper assembly appears to be fitted.

 

One other thing I am Now perhaps concerned about, is Engine Detail.

 

Whilst I Do understand that one can use the Lexan Interior, it is 'Sorely' lacking in Any Real Detail,..especially where the Engine Bay is concerned,..Is it OK to simply run the Car with the Lexan interior,.. 'As Is' ?, or should the 'Bit' that replicates the Plenum chambers etc, required to be fitted?

 

Cheers

Glad you're asking these questions Stoo.. I have no clue

 

As per 1.1.6.e. of the car regulations the wipers and engine details are not required when the lexan interior and window set is used. The only hard plastic part from the interior that must be refitted, is the roll cage.

 

Cheers,

 

Jan

Anyone ever had trouble putting a Steele pinion on the NSR Evo motor?

 

I stuffed a motor today and don't know why, I used a slot it press and bent the shaft and there's a lot of play now..

The simple fact that you can't actually Press against the 'Shaft' at the Commutator end is a good enough reason for myself to Not even Try and Press a Steel Pinion onto the Evo motor shaft.

 

As a reasonable amount of Force would be required, it means you are Pressing the Commutator and shaft up into the Endbell Bearing,...

 

Which might account for the Extra 'Free Play' you have mentioned,..you have either pressed the Commutator further onto the Shaft, or shifted/dislodged the endbell bearing.

 

I've opted for a Plafit pinion and spur gear combo.

Here's my solution.

 

My home made pinion press with adapter for motors with enclosed endbell bearings.

You can see from the mark in the centre of the adapter that it does push against the shaft and end float is not affected.

 

Assembled with the adapter.

For that adaptor to work, the motor shaft must be very close to the pressed metal end cap then?

 

It looks like you have you machined a centre spike to push the end cap onto the end of the shaft?

 

If it is not, end float will be affected.

 

Edit

Another thing to make it easier would be to put the pinion in the oven and the motor in the freezer before pressing them on.

Yes, I really don't see how that device is particularly different to either the AvantSlot unit I havre or the aforementioned Sot.it unit Gary.

 

You Still cannot prevent 'Pressure' from the Can/Pinion end pushing the shaft into the endbell/bearing end when Pressing the pinion on, as you are in effect Only supporting the metal 'shroud' or can, Not the Shaft directly

 

But hey guys,..Feel Free to 'Mess' with Your Evo motors that way,..Especially Your Race motors ,... lol

I'm Quite Happy with the Very Smooth and Silent Gear Mesh I have,.. :)

The bottom of the adapter is flat.

 

The shaft pushes on the cap which pushes on the adapter.

 

I've put steel pinions on 2 motors with no increase in end float.

 

It works.

 

Nuff said.

 

If you don't want blunt replies then don't argue every damn point.

Gary, if there's a gap between the end of the shaft and the end cap (on the inside I'm talking about), end float could be comprimised.

You might have just been lucky.

My lastest weapon (actually it's more like a BB gun)

To para phrase Crocodile Dundee, you could race with it...but it goes like s#%t.

It might come good, but my Porsche is a tenth quicker on my track.

Thanks Jan,

 

No connection, just liked the livery. It was a challenge with the decals, the only paint on the car is white.

I need to try some of the tuning tips you posted.

 

Cheers,
