Knight Customs "Wild One" Sand Rail project. 10 months 4 weeks ago #75374

Nothing too exciting but the roof mount tabs on the cage seemed a little lost Measured up a brace and asked Bezerk to cut out while doing a piece for the Maxxum ff

I hope that it will have a long thin antenna with a triangular flag

Going with Flo's suggestion I restored an old SRB type whip to use for a sand dune marker flag, Was pretty bent but straightened out enough Polished a frog resistor mount bracket for a whip base plate which of course fitted the original WO resistor mount location on the cage

After realizing my mistake with the initial servo install I have been procrastinating finishing it, Sucked it up and completed the steering setup today

Feeling Exceedingly grateful after receiving a custom driver figure from Knight customs for this project, As you can see it has a helmet which pays tribute to the Wild One 😁 Took some measurements and Shortened the steering column, Now I can put the driver in and out with ease 😊

Decided to make a shifter for this, Used the same rod as the steering shaft and thread one end to M4 and tapped the other to M3. Machined an old alloy pinion for the base and tapped to M4, Machined the hex off an M3 ball stud then bent the rod to the angles bringing it close to the driver. I used real world principals where driver doesn't have to move his hand far from the wheel to reach the gear shift 😁
