  • MRRC kit cheetah put together finally

    After having this around for months I put it together.
    Some may remember last month when I re-found the kit I scanned and posted the instruction page.

    This sebring chassis had allowed the motor to sit very low, the motor shaft well below the axle centerline.
    I raised and glued the motor so the shaft was as close as possible to the axle center, much much smoother.

    Now that it runs so smooth and quiet I've been having a blast running it.

    Any way, some pics

          Thanks
          you can see the tail end of the motor is lifted to get the gear mesh correct.
          Fun runner, will have to look for another in red or yellow.

            I’ve had good luck with the black gears on Sebring chassis.
            The gray ones; now those were real bad. I sourced replacement black gears from REH to replace the gray ones.

              Moving the motor to align the shafts is what I did to eliminate the hypoid offset. The gears as the come aren't hypoid although a bit of running the car the way it comes sets them to run only one way. Accidentally running the motor in reverse ruins the gears even for a very short time. Aligning the armature shaft with the axle shaft eliminates that problem.

                i've had luck using the offset gears, even back in the 60's. not sure if slot.it still makes 'em. in my stash i did find some of their 26, 27 and 30's.
