What medium are you using for posting images Dadio? I used google photos but must have done something wrong

I use Imgur , it's an image storage site that allows 3rd party hosting , a lot like Photobucket used to do untill they started charging for it .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

What image hosting site are you using ?
First upload the picture to in image hosting site then copy and paste the image URL to the forum page , I usually size mine to large thumbnail , hope that helps .

hi, tried it with google photos, and imgur but without creating an account. guess I'll do that next. have just been pasting the url between the img tags.
but you ain't missing anything!! Looking at some of the projects on this site, it's the ugly sister of them all.
at least I've got the steering servo fitted a bit better without the 4x2 timber lintle. with the upgraded servo saver there's not much room between it and the battery holder.

Just found the PDF of zerda manual. I didn't realize how many bits are missing on my jallopy. And the drive belt must be too long as the tensioner is under the belt instead of over it. Tried fitting as per the illustration but the belt is too long, another long ago bodge. Have you found a supplier of drive pinions for the motor.

Cool that you got the pictures sorted , I got the motor pulley from Belting Online , they are 15 or 16 tooth for a 92 tooth belt or 18 tooth for the 93 tooth belt , the pitch it MXL , if you want a 93 tooth belt let me know as I had to buy 10 for $11 so you can have one for the price of the postage , the pulleys come with 3mm hole that needs to be opened out to 3.175mm (or 3.2mm) to fit onto the motor shaft .
Looking at your car the steering is probably better than stock if you can tidy it up a bit , looks a bit Heath Robinson with the wood block . The shocks look like Tamiya CV shocks and are going to be way better than stock , the front shock mounts in stock form are really wobbly so again what you have is probably way better than stock .
The top deck on the chassis is Krydex about 1.5 -2 mm thick , you can buy it in sheet form on eBay , I could scan mine and email it to you to use as a template to cut out a replacement , not sure it would fit over the servo in that position and that's probably why it was taken off , I've also seen another thread on here where someone made a carbon fibre top deck that looked pretty cool.
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

I'll keep the belt in mind, I have 3 spares of these oversized, too long belts. also some spare suspension arms if yours don't straighten out. I wonder if your contact can 3d print hard plastics? see this other repair for a broken motor mounting...Image

There's a rear gearbox side plate on eBay right now search "Vintage Hirobo carter back right rockn city" about £10 delivered so not that expensive really , It's for the Rock'n city but it's the same part .
