Since nobody comes back here because of coved, my boss is uh or too cheap to fix them. Anyways new table what’s what’s up anyways uh. Here we go hopefully this. Hopefully this works today. Biggest thing for me is uh exhaust, so the the most challenging piece of this. If you look at the manifold here, there’s really not a lot of room next to the uh next to the holes, so i can’t fit a nut on there. Uh and i can’t make this plastic piece threaded and drill out the holes in the engine and trust this plastic piece to hold the engine down because remember the exhaust studs there are the engine mount as well. So ah this hurts to say i’m gon na glue. This on best, i can ah red gasket maker, it’s uh. You know silicone rtv, it’s good to like 650 degrees, so that should work for a gasket and then a jb weld which i’m going to put in the holes and then slide it on there. I figure, if i put the jb weld in the holes and i had to, i could still back the screw out. It might destroy the manifold, but i’ve got several of these so i’m. Not super worried about that i’m using the red silicone gasket, because the paper one that came with it really only works when there’s pressure and since i don’t have any way of screwing anything down. I’Ll basically just take this off and push and hold, and the gasket will have to be sticky enough to hold the whole thing together so that’s what i’m doing today, i don’t think anybody wants to see that on camera but gasket maker on the engine jb weld On the manifold, stick it together at the same time and like hold it for 15 minutes, and hopefully it turns out well, okay, back at it again um the manifold is adhered.
There i’ve also attached my battery just with some sticky back velcro to the transmission into the bottom of the chassis um. You shouldn’t have to change it, but it turns out that’s a lithium supercapacitor it’s like a 500 milliamp 500 capacity, so it’s uh, not so great. So these these guys can can wear out pretty quick but uh that’s. Okay, i got a spare and now that one’s easily removable um. I reattached this wire to the washer actually it’s. Now a double stacked set of washers under that bolt right. There that’ll be the ground for my glow plug and, of course, this one is attached to the tip of the glow plug, so those two will give it power and i realized this uh i needed you know a connector and i really wanted to use my usual Glow plug starter, so so this is going to be stock. It turns out that a four millimeter bullet cut in half the outside taken off and then wrapped in a paperclip is pretty much the same shaped pretty much the same as a glow plug. So negative positive done, that’s uh that’s going to be yes that’s going to be writing on the car i’ll heat shrink it’ll make it look a little nicer but uh that will attach to these wires here and give me my glow ignition. So i guess i’ll pretty that up put it on there and then really just need to uh mount the exhaust, the actual tube itself well, it’s daytime again so uh we’re moving back to our normal spot here, but uh.
Here she is uh. This is kind of a weird setup really, but i guess on the plus side it doesn’t use his body clips. I can’t say i’ve ever had a nitro car that didn’t need body clips um, so the front is tucked in under the front bumper like normal. The back is actually held on by the the exhaust pipe tube. It just can’t come off it’s hanging from the body so go buddy clips, uh taking the body off is really easy. Uh all you have to do is unplug the exhaust in two places. No big deal and then pick the back up and pop it off from uh under the shock collar slide it back there we go no problem boom, that’s, actually really clumsy. It takes forever to put the body on. I hate this setup but uh here it is that’s that’s, all of it uh front to back things. I’Ve changed nothing from shock tower forward. Uh on the side. Here i hollowed out this side plate stuck in the sr215 down and without its shell, so it’s uh, very thin, it’s, just a printed circuit board and glued it in there. This wire here runs under the engine to the battery back there and then just several plugs. Like normal, so this steering servo plug was actually the perfect length. I didn’t have to trim it at all for the back here, the gas tank. This is a sullivan round. One ounce tank actually meant for airplanes, but it works.
Fine i’ve used this in my mini t, there’s a 3d printed mount these two screws through it and holes in the mount for the zip tie to hold the whole thing down the exhaust right there intake for the carburetor on the side and uh not installed, but I guess i should. I just need a small tube plugs in right there for refilling uh. The exhaust is just mounted right here through one of the original screw holes, but i’ve put a longer screw in it, so it can actually hold onto it and it holds on just fine, with the pretty stiff silicone pipe attached. It’S not going anywhere throttle servo mounted by two 3d printed pieces. There it’s an l, shaped horn. This l shaped horn goes to the brake, which pushes backwards against the clutch belt, with a piece of fuel line tubing for brake and then moves the carb slide up for throttle open, close. Obviously, the engine is an added piece that’s mounted by those two screws. I go through the exhaust actually through the bottom of the chassis, and that holds it all down. Uh the clutch and flywheel setup is hsp. The spur gear is a 31 tooth, uh 32 pitch or mod 8 traxxas emax pinion gear. Actually, the few bits and pieces um i go into most of that, a little more detail in my other video, the earlier one. If you wanted to see more of the build but it’s about it, oh and the the ignition setup so there’s, my uh rigged, fake glow plug, so i can plug my glow igniter into it and it’ll light.
The glow plug remotely and also heat shrunk together is the charge lead for my uh 500 little battery, and this guy is the power switch for the receiver and that’s about it. Now you get to watch me struggle to put the body on, because this is fun. So you i found on the mini bees, it’s really easy. If you just take the very front of this and bend it up, so it catches under here under the shock tower uh first things: first, that that fuel line bit needs to be sticking through. Put that under the front shock tower flare, the front ends out, so it clears the receiver. Push make sure this lips under the pull start, pull this guy out, get the slack out of it, and then we need to make sure this clears the throttle, link and the brake and doesn’t hit the shock. And then we connect the exhaust and the exhaust pressure for the tank boom there. It is that was easy. Right, definitely beats body clip so obviously um. I miss body clips, but uh hey it’s together it rolls it sits, really low. Now, like really, though, probably gon na have to jack the shocks up, i might have to put little few line spacers under the shocks like i did on my new b, but um cool let’s see if it starts, i guess Music stirring, of course works. We got throttle open. I will close and uh right kind of hard for me to do, but open close break just as effective as the mini.
She was, i guess, and uh yeah all right boys. This is it world’s. First nitro mini b little plug igniter here plugs right in Music, i’ve already primed it Music, oh Music, Music. Well that sounds fantastic. Cool i’m gon na go through a couple of uh heat. You know heat cycles break in and uh i’ll see. If i can get some some driving footage on this video for you guys today, i am super excited. I have not been this hyped about uh about one of my creations for a long time, so uh let’s see in the next bit here all right. You guys let’s make history world’s. First nitro power mini b, glow ignition, oh it’s, almost on low ignition on Music. Oh the pole starts doing this again to me: it’s a one way bearing problem. So let me figure that out. Okay, maybe this time hey Music, Music Applause, wow – that is Music Applause. I can’t begin to tell you how little throttle i’m using Music Applause, Music Applause – hey! Oh, this is gon na be fast. Oh, i don’t have a thermometer with him, so we’re going to stop it there Music. I don’t have a thermometer so we’re going to stop it there, because uh i’m not about to blow up a new engine but wow that is uh. That is impressive, i’m excited guys. That was uh. I i was i i can’t show you on my controller here one second, i mean we’re talking like Music, this much trigger that’s what you saw in the video it’s, how much power i was using and that thing was accelerating i wasn’t even able to to go Full speed with it, but there you go: world’s: first uh nitro swap mini b, i’m sure it’s, a pretty small distinction, relatively speaking, but it’s fine.
I did it uh first mini t 2.0 and now the first mini b. I don’t know how well it’s going to perform. I need to turn down this. This steering it’s way too sharp. It turns way too hard, but we’ll we’ll tone that down break the engine in a little bit and maybe you’ll see this making some laps i’d love to see how well the low center of gravity does on the track. Anyways uh thanks for watching. I hope you guys enjoyed the video like it. If you did. Hopefully, you don’t dislike it, because you, like the video of course, hit the subscribe button.
