That worked perfect! Do you think it will be strong enough to move with a load?

I made a few adjustments last night so it's a bit more reliable. It had no problems pushing and pulling my clod crawler back and forth. And unfortunately something happened to the HPI ESC and reverse is now barely functional. It stutters bad and then quits. Any attempt at re calibrating throttle on the ESC is not working. I'm now in the market for a really cheap ESC, but unfortunately completely out of funds for a bit.

If anything fails, it will be the little part I made that threads on the all thread. It is aluminum tapped to 8-32. If anything the threads on it will strip, and I will replace with a steel version, possibly a bit thicker so I can have deeper threads. It's really just an experiment right now to see if I could make it work, and now that it does - I will slowly start working in perfecting it.
