SFC K's Puller

Post by SFC K » Fri Sep 27, 2013 6:15 pm

Alright! Finally started working on a puller project for the winter months. I got most of the parts and stuff from Jim (Aka 6X6_BigDollars). Thanks again! :)


I kind of have it together the way I think it needs to be. I am looking for two sprockets to get the chain drive working.

I was wondering what body to use and found an old Tamiya Touareg body from a spare CC-01 kit. I think it looks pretty bad arse on here and will likely keep it.

Know idea on electronics at the moment but will figure that out soon enough....

Well, I will have to post pictures later of the body on. PB is being a pain.... :evil:

So your the one who got it lol. that does look good i wanted to start a puller but the wife said i have to finish what i started before i can start another project. That body looks like it was made for that chassis. do you know what colors your going with yet ??
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,

Yeah I know CC. I told Jim you had first dibs on it. I did not want to scoop it out from under you...This body does seem to be right at home on this chassis for sure. I just wish their were no blasted body holes in it.

I am going to go blue and yellow?... I need to look at the decal sheet again and see what works with the decals it came with.


Their will be a sprocket on the rear drive shaft and I will have a smaller one on the motor mount bracket that will have a hud that will adapt to the 1/8" motor shaft...

Jim, aka 6x6_BigDollars, has eye problems, he can't see the screen very well.
He writes in caps so HE can see what he's typing, he's not mad/shouting.
In PM's, it's helpfull if you change your font-size to "huge".

Oh, they spin just fine Jim... :)


I just placed an order with Servo City for the sprockets and the hubs to mount them to the 1/4" axle and direct to the motor shaft. The prices are really cheap.

If you need weird things for your RC project, check them out...

You expect me to read your post when there are pics posted below it.... :lol: :lol:

Im getting kinda bored with all the stuff Ive built, restored, etc. I need something new. Puller build maybe the ticket.


What kinda electronics do these things take?
(maybe I should read posts above before asking :lol: .)

No worries...


I am going to be running brushed in this to start out with and see how it does. I do not have an ESC picked out yet but something that will handle a 10T or higher motor. Servo, just a plain old Futaba S3003.

And some more updates tonight.

I have the steering all straighten out with the addition of some new ball ends from my SCX-10 spares box. I also made some plastic servo mounts so that servo is centered on the chassis rails.

I found some clamp on weights out in the garage that will work really well and added a lot of weight to the front. I just need to chop off the ends od the bolts so the body will sit lower on the front.

I am still trying to figure out the gearing on this. I need to make a trip to the LHS and get some 32 pitch gears. Man this is going to be a brain teaser to get it right... [-o< [-o<

But it's coming along... :wink:
