Re: Can you I.D. these?

No expert here....others will be able to add more....but...I think that's an OG Revtech modified motor 1987-89ish maybe. The blue caps and painted can are a dead give away. I'd say you might actually have a 12 turn Sizzler there! The number of winds is burned into the endbell of the second photo of ...

Re: Composite Craft Predator Lynx re-build

Finally got the right length tie rods...so...on to the front end. Associated titanium, DuBro 4-40's to the blocks and 2-56's to the Kimbro. You've got to ream the 2-56's to fit the rod...but, they're self tapping with plenty of material, so easy to do. Futaba S132h and good old 12e/i/L front spacer ...

Soldering 3 large gauge wires to OG 4 pin deans plugs...was not as easy as I remembered...could've used a few more hands/alligator clips :lol: But all in all hap...
