Hi Bob, that guy was driving that Panther like he had stolen it, I doubt that engine and transmission is original, or stock for that matter.
I may offer the smoker for sale but I would need to modify each smoke box so would need the customers unit sent to me, or offer the whole package, let's see what response i get when it's out and about driving in period video. I love the RND trials, I have also to add a tick over fan before her first outing, that just smooths out the effect transition . Those 16:1 gearbox units should help keep the revs up and the speed down for more realistic period driving look. I do so hate the speedy AFV drivers, it can make our hobby look pants at times, each to there own I suppose :roll:

I have bolted all the crane components in there stowage positions, Now Im happy with the look I will replace the m3 screws with tee bars which can be finger tightened, then you don't need to find a wrench when in the field.

First outing with the Bergepanther A, motor/gearbox proving, winch proving and the high pressure smoker proving trials, all performed very well indeed.https://youtu.be/IryTytOtTts



I just love these 16/1 ratio gearbox units, she has amazing torque, a more realistic top speed, the revs pick up just like the 1/1 and for a towing vehicle which will need to pull massive loads on a regular basis absolutely no issues with the esc's and the drive train. I also stood on the Tiger1 tracks and surfed with a total towed weight with tremendous friction of 80kgs plus!
