The servo looks quite sorry for itself but i plugged it in and it all works... Although the exposed wires by the plug will need covering!

I'm going to use the dodgy old silvercan that came with the car. I will clean it up with some wire wool and use the wonder-lube ZX-1 on it to give it some life.

Also got some lightly used mounted foams for £1.99 and free postage but they haven't arrived yet. I got those as I intend to run the car at my local club as a bar for the speed.

There are plenty of wheels without tyres on eBay for £1.99-£2.99 inc postage so basically it's a choice thing. I have a spare set of wheels here which I will use with the rubber wheels I got of the Toy RC car. ( BTW it's not cheating as most will just use rubber tyres I just wanted the bargain foams as they run these at my club)

£13.27 - £6.98 leaves me with £6.29 and take £1.99 for the wheels and I have £4.30 left!

That's a full 'hobby grade' rc car ready to run for £20.70!!!

Now the question is... Is it any good?

I'm racing tonight but might just be able to get it together to test at the track.... Best charge that battery!

  1. RC servo is to position its output arm to a position that exactly corresponds with the movement of the corresponding stick, switch or slider on the transmitter. RC servo is controlled by sending them a pulse of variable width. It parts very useful in toys.
