I’m thinking of start building a T-54 / T-55, do you have some picture of tour project?
I’m very interested,,,!!!
I lost interest in doing the brake and differential type steering but I'd still like to finish my T54 to drive at the tank events. The new internals include a pair of 350W, 24V scooter motors and some big NiCad Battlepacks - 36V and 8 Ah (total). This setup saves 60-80 lbs! Saved weight means big battery capacity and big motors are not needed. It's also gentler on the tracks and chassis. The new setup will be slower than my original LEM-130 motor setup; while LOTS of speed is fun, someone could get hurt and I don't think it would give much of an advantage. (when I say "lots of speed" I mean 20 mph and faster). I'll use the turret I have almost finished.Gene
