Toyota FJ45 from FMS 112 Scale – A New Color of an Old Favorite
Introducing the Toyota FJ45 from FMS 112 Scale
The Toyota FJ45 from FMS 112 scale is one of the most beautiful RC cars to ever grace the laboratories. It is a platform that was introduced in the form of a little Willys Jeep, and now comes in three colors – green, red, and yellow. The doors open on the rear, and the car is equipped with a two speed transmission.
Performance and Control
The low gear of the FJ45 is incredibly slow, as it is a leaf sprung vehicle. However, it is surprisingly easy to control, with a flick of a switch. The car is equipped with a servo for the two speed transmission, and can switch between neutral and high speed.
The Power of the FMS Tires
The FMS tires are a great addition to any vehicle, offering a lot of torque and power at low speeds. This makes them perfect for tackling steep terrain, as well as providing a smooth ride at normal speeds. The FMS tires also come with a lot of leaves on the pack, providing a lot of articulation and acceleration.
The Benefits of FMS Tires
FMS tires offer a lot of benefits for any vehicle. They provide a lot of torque and power at low speeds, making them perfect for tackling steep terrain. They also provide a lot of articulation and acceleration, making them great for off-roading. Additionally, they provide a smooth ride at normal speeds, making them great for everyday use.
Testing the FMS Tires
To test the FMS tires, we fitted them to a vehicle and took it for a spin on our test course. We were impressed with the results, as the FMS tires provided a lot of torque and power at low speeds, allowing us to tackle steep terrain with ease. We also found that the FMS tires provided a smooth ride at normal speeds, making them great for everyday use.
Lifting the Land Rover: Achieving a Higher Clearance
Military Hill Wheels and Tires
The Land Rover is equipped with military Hill wheels and tires, which are known for being strong and reliable. However, the tires are smaller than what is needed to provide the necessary clearance for the vehicle. To solve this issue, a lift was needed.
Flipping the Spacer Block
The solution was to flip the spacer block, which is the small knob located on the bottom or top of the vehicle. This simple action provided the lift necessary to give the vehicle the clearance it needed.
Achieving a Three to Four Inch Lift
The lift achieved was between three and four inches, which is the ideal height for the Land Rover. This lift was possible due to the leaf-sprung platform and two-speed transmission, which are both controlled by a servo.
Although the lift was successful, there were a couple of problems encountered. The front drive shaft can fall off at articulation, and the left turn can have a hard time due to the mount colliding with the vehicle. Both of these issues need to be solved.
