HL Truck Mods

Heng Long/WPL are now manufacturing 1/16 scale RC trucks, so it seemed sensible to create a forum area dedicated to the amazing things that members are doing with them. Post your builds, mods, and tips here.

So are the tires on the trailers the same size as the tires on the cckw?

Yes, they use a modified CCKW rim to suit a 2mm shaft but otherwise are the same.

Here's the next project, and as soon as I finish all tires and rims for this and the Q60 I'll start printing the one ton trailer.

Video test of my motor unit setup

Who wants a dual 370 motor setup, this is the best powerplant by far. It will take 3s lipo if you are made enough. We also have a variant which will allow 6s. But i am not even that mad! lol

Consider it done :)
i am printing a new prototype mount for dual 370s, so i will send you one over. I may have also found a good supply for the motors, i bought 12 of them last night as i have had a load of people from all over the world wanting to buy them after seeing the video from Tomley. Have some to ship to Oz, US and around EU :)
Sorry i am not trying to plug it(well not much haha), but just to show my level of madness is getting better haha

I have a couple larger more powerful dual motor setups in the waiting, but secret testing is being carried out

Think? I'm absolutely certain that Will is Bonkers, but that's exactly why I like him so much. @)

You have to be crazy to be an RC tanker ... a normal person would go insane. :haha: :haha:

HERE'S A LITTLE TEASER PREVIEW. THE REST OF THE RIMS ARE STILL PRINTING BUT HERE'S HOW THE FRONT WILL LOOK. iN THE SECOND PHOTO THERE'S A TIRE FROM THE CCKW NEXT TO THE NEW FRONT TIRE SO YOU CAN SEE JUST HOW MUCH SMALLER THE CCKW TIRES ARE.

Hey come on, i am totally bonkers :) lol

Another build started tonight!
This is my own dual 370 motor test rig. Mack M123 in the making using spare WPL B1 cab cut down a bit. Bit of a winch mech going to be made up which will be functional and a big dirty great 5th wheel to my own design. I want this to be a test rig for an Oshkosh M1070 8x8 i been asked to design & build.

WPL Cab before cut

After cut

On a 6x6 chassis with Metal rims, daka tyres and a dual 370 motor unit connected up with full metal driveline.

3-4s esc going in this thing. I like the idea running 2x 2s lipo in series for POWER

How to break JJRC axles. Drive 3s power through my dual 180 motor setup. Can you imagine what my dual 370s would do haha.
Anyway WPL metal axles on order and will be fitted to help transmit power and aid off roading. I know the dual 180s are sllllooooooooowwwww, but in love the crawling ability.

Gonna have to call this one a FAIL!! I suppose some energetic bloke could narrow the axles, but it won't be me. I'll just save them for when I build the Diamond T cargo truck, probably after the tanker.

The tyres look really good Gary, there's no limit to the builds now that you can print the appropriate tyres, your printed crates look great also :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

Been looking at the JJRC Q64 since it came out and have finally ordered it off Amazon, it's the cheapest I've ever seen it - £17.40 + £5 Delivery https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MT8LXHW/

Once it arrives, (and as long as it's what it says it is!) I'll be attempting to create the MAN HX58 6x6 Unit Support Tanker(UST) to go with my Challenger 2...

Will look at potential upgrades as and when necessary. :haha:
