I am utterly amazed when ever you show one of your creations, Chris. :give_rose: If only I was born with talent instead of good looks! :sarcastic:

As the guy says on one of those cooking shows "OH YEAH, BABE!". That's downright "perty".

Is the 36D rewound or stock?

Jairus,

That is just so cool!

A "Dynamic Jaildoor"!

I love the super skinny wires feeding that big humongous 36D motor!

Today we run almost 'welding wire' to a motor that almost draws and amp under load. Back then we ran such small wire to a motor that could suck the lifeblood out of a set of batteries! And to think we all used nothing but resistor controllers to make them run!

A big thumbs up Posted Image

The tires and wheels really complete this car. What brand are they and where can they be purchased?

Wheels are Russkit re-pops from Electric Dreams.
Inserts BWA
Front tires are model car tires that fit tight... and then trued.
Rear tires are NOS Dynamic right out of the package.
