Taigen Tiger 1 Initial Production Suspension Superiority

Post by Jimster »

The articulation is the best I’ve seen on an RC tank. And it’s not afraid of water.

Quite the oasis there.

Very cool outing. Nice driving too, thought it was gonna need a Famo tow out of the drink but she pulled through sure enough.

I get mesmerized just watching the articulation. That's half the fun for me.

Nice Jimster :thumbup:

Thank you kind sir. I envy your Tiger’s weld seams etc. Wish I had taken more time on my model. Keep the food recipes coming my friend.

I think the suspension shows its best at 3:15 and 5:45 onward. While these sequences may not be the most dramatic, they illustrate the range and flex of the road wheels.

Thanks, men! Very flexible indeed. That spot is only a few minutes from my house. The side slipping into deeper water was unplanned but no water entered the hull due to the soft foam I have packed around the driveshafts.

What a beautiful place to run. Do I hear a model railway in the background?

I don't want to alarm anyone, but there's an ant the size of a dachshund creeping up on the Tiger in the foreground a minute or so in. I'm not going anywhere near that place!

Ditto. I miss summer running the tanks outside. So it wasn't just me who thought I heard a train in the background. I love watching Tigers and Panthers going over obstacles. Panzer IV is another cool tank to watch the suspension in action
