I'll have to check on the batteries for characteristics. If I'm stay
with vehicle specs, the mount on the Elefant would be 14 degrees
right/left, 14 up, 8 down. I was figuring on a spring to counterbalance
the gun at the rear. Where should I look for the servos?
Thanks for the offer on the bushings and the other info.
Could you provide an email address for shipping info and other secret

T005's transmission uses 3L series pulleys (3/8" wide belt) on the EV
Warriors. I filled the pulley bores with epoxy past and then bored them
out with a 8mm bit. It's been working fine so far. My 35 series
sprockets were sourced from wmberg.com.

Last year I used two 18amphr batteries per battle, swapping batteries
out about halfway through the battle (the tank holds one battery at a
time). This year I'll have three for each battle. I like to run around
and burn the amps!
Are garden tractor batteries deep cycle, or starter batteries? You want
a deep cycle rated battery for this application.

I would think two 1/4 scale servos would be a better choice for moving
the mount around in a tank destroyer. How much articulation are you
planning for, 10 to 20 degrees in either axis? I'm using a 1/4 scale
servo on my elevate - works great. On the vertical axis, make sure you
counter balance the marker with a spring or a weight on the barrel (a
spring is preferred) to lesson strain on the servo.
