"Yosemite Sam here...I have replaced my old and slow horse with a more powerful ride"

 

"Them varmints are always getting away!"

 

"The local blacksmith has promised me a fast ride with lots of horses"

 

"That hombre has hammered and welded and soldered and banged up a variation of the Super Bandit"

 

"Just wait you'll see it soon!"

Yosemite Sam says

 

"Still a work in progress, but this here's the chassis for my new ride"

 

"Those rascals and whippersnappers won't get away from me now!"

 

"Maybe I should tell how we got here..."

Tink the Blacksmith of Toonerville:

 

"We started out with a very basic configuration and we had a suspension rear end with a regular front end."

 

"We also did not have the original special style front axle / tongue / guide-flag hole assembly so we shored-up a regular tongue cut to help emulate the wheel base and  guide-flag distance to the center-line of the front 1/8 free-wheeling axle."

 

"We also did not have the original wheels or axles, and we intended to use modern silicone foam rear wheels & tires anyway so..."

 

"A neat set of La Cucaracha Roller-Bearing front wheels with knife-edge tires were selected for this hybrid version of the regular Bandit layout."

 

"Knock off three prong axle keepers were installed up front." "A Jet-flag Guide and a weight on the mount were used to help anchor this ride."

 

"Finally we were going to use a modern Black 48 Pitch Crown gear, maker escapes me."

 

"Then, impossible to-get-parts became available, making reality a possibility!"

Thanks to Pablo for 16D Dynamic Motor Mount & Jairus for the Endbell Motor Mount Bracket to hold the 16D in place.

Yosemite Sam:

 

"Tink will continues the build up!"

 

 “Test installation of a Kimble bearing drive stock FT16D can drive was next.”

 “Looked good but now we decided to up the ante and make this a Super Bandit!”

 “Using a Rewound SVP Motor and changing the front end to a suspension version did the trick.”

 “We also changed the rear Crown to a Tradeship Delrin version.”

 

 “One of the important items to having a somewhat proper Bandit is the unique one-piece body mount!”

 “Obtaining this item allowed this planned project to finally move forward.”

 “First, Mike DiVuolo donated an original one! That was great”

 

 “Then I also obtained one from Larry Horner. Also great as I need extras for various projects on the Dynamic Chassis System”

 “Lastly, Martin Windmill made up a batch of them as well and also some for the Renegade.”

 “First I installed the original one and it things started to get  exciting!”

 “Finally we settled on the MW example for this project. I am keeping the other two handy for future projects”
