Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

The wheels,idler and sprockets seem to line up.I initially put 94 links on but ended up removing 1 link.I still need to do the other side.Ill put the motors in and see how it runs.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Allen,the 30deg tool.I initially just glued it but it kept coming apart,then I just bolted it but I didn't trust it to not move however tight the bolt was,so I did both.My original idea Wes to have the flat part against the Hull but the weld seams gave a false level,so I used it edge on on the outsi...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thanks Vince,Adrian as I'm only in the test fit stage I did fit 2 but they seemed to stop the arms fitting up to the Hull so I've left them out for now.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thanks for that Vince,I'll measure mine to see what they are.Did you have any trouble with the idler Vince.?I see Brian had trouble with his tracks riding the drive sprocket,I think he skimmed 2mm off the idler. Once I've run mine around I shall remove all the wheels and suspension arms and finish p...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I put a couple of wheels on and a short length of track,I'm hoping to have the thing running around under it's own power within the next couple of weeks. It's not as easy as you think,I have been juggling suspension arms around because not all of them seem to go fully in.Also the front sprocket seem...
