I got these from an engineering firm called revolve bearings, they are on fleabay, if you do go for it always use British 04B sprockets/chains as these will match each other, if you get cheaper US gear it won't bloody fit!

Hi mark, yes I've got everything sorted from motors to batteries and even the infrared throttle, its been very expensive BUT I think it's going to be worth it. The very worst part has been filing the locking collars to fit the axle. 7 hours per collar and my hands are raw![ATTACH]1286[/ATTACH]

I'm happy with the finish but there is quite a bit more fabrication to do yet, once that is done the rest can be bolted together in about a week I'm guessing.

If you friendly chaps are interested ill continue to drop by and give updates!

Well that's it for the motor brackets, they are rock solid and hardly weigh anything, just waiting for all the electrical equipment to arrive
Next week and its just bolt it together and go!

Hi wsg7

It's very nearly the finished product, its not running yet, I need two lipo batteries and some other electrics to go into the black box and that's all. But the board won't look any different from how you see it now.
