I got this pullback racer a few years ago, so i’m not sure where to find it. Now i got it from dollar general and it cost about five dollars, but the parent company that makes these is kids. Tech, Однако, walmart carries this adventure force brand 126 scale remote control car, which is made by the same company. That makes these pullback racers. It looks like this: lamborghini is now going to be offered as a remote control vehicle. These only cost ten dollars, as opposed to five dollars for this pullback racer, but still not a bad price to get a detailed body that should fit on your k989. This is a closer look at what i did to the chassis. This is the extended wheelbase of this. There are videos on how to do this, but you can move the gearbox back a little bit and that helps fit these body shells on here better as the wheelbase of this in its original form, is just usually a little too short for the body post. I just put the front one that was here on the back and raised up as high as it would go and took the back body post and put it on the front and lowered it down as far as it would go. A lot of the bottom of the car is needed to give it the completed. Look as you can see the front the sides, сзади, are all necessary to give it that finished.
Look so i did have to cut away quite a bit of the bottom of the car and put it back in there to give it that completed. Посмотрите. This is the finished version, a little more detail and up close, i was able to keep the wheel arches in there to give it a more of a finished look to it on the back, and i was able to keep the sides in the back in here And it holds in place with these screws here here in the back and then the front is held in place with those two screws. Another modification i did have to do is in the front here there used to be a couple screws in here that looked like this, and a little piece of plastic that’s raised up and held help hold the front windshield in that was hitting against the front shock Tower so the front wouldn’t sit very low, so i did have to take those screws out and then grind this down with my rotary tool in order to smooth it out to make it a little bit easier to get the front of the car to sit lower. Также, here i had to shave down where these screws go in order to get the in order for the chassis to fit in there, so i just had to cut away a little bit of that right there. The reason i reversed the body post was where i was going to put the holes, would make for less plastic to have to drill through so reversing that front mount putting the back mount on the front.
I was able to put the holes here and here as well as just being able to go straight up on the back. I could put the poles here and here just to make it easier to get my pins in there so that’s. Why i put the holes there and that’s why i you put switch the body mounts from back to front just made it easier to get the body shell on there. That way, this rotary tool comes in very handy when trimming out the bottom of the car, as well as having some grinding attachments. These are just kind of a sandpaper type of type of bit that goes in here, but using this tool made this job that much easier. A few other useful tools are some screwdrivers, an exacto knife, one of these little wheel, wrenches and also these body scissors. These curved scissors for trimming lexan bodies – these also come in handy when modifying these body shells to fit now. One thing unique to this body: shell was, Я не сделал, have to trim out the wheel arches. I had to do that on the other ones i’ve done, but this one actually lined up really well, so i didn’t have to do that to figure out where to make my cuts on the sides just put the chassis on there and see how it lines up As you can see on this, Основном, where these lines are on, the sides here is about the sides of the chassis, so that was the guide for me to of where to start cutting in order to keep the bottom of the car to give it.
That finished. Look once i got a general idea of where i needed to cut. I used the rotary tool with a cutting bit and it just began my cuts. I start him in a little. You know it went to here or here, but i cut it in closer. This way, because it’s easier to kind of cut out the biggest part first and then fine tune it as necessary. So it does take quite a number of cutting and fitting to get it to be exact. So just be patient. Take your time, but again, this rotary tool with a cutting bit makes that easy to do now. Let’S take a look at what i did for the wheels. When i made this mustang, i was able to keep the wheels off of the pullback racer shape the holes and then use it on the finished version. But in looking at the wheels on this, i probably wasn’t going to be able to do that plus that’s. Very tedious and time consuming to create the holes, and one thing that this car doesn’t have is the centers of the wheels just aren’t big enough in order to drill down in order to fit the wheel nut in there. So trying to use these wheels honestly was just out of the question the tire and wheels that i do have on here. I’Ve had for a while, and i used that for the camaro body, because that also had black wheels.
Originally, Однако, these rims aren’t in stock anymore, i got them from banggood.com, but they do have some that are similar, that you can buy that are still in stock. If you are looking for some tires and wheels for this project, banggood.com does carry these in stock. На данный момент, these are these fire lap brand wheels and tires i’ll put a link in the description here’s a little closer look at what those rims look like. These would probably look pretty good on there now as an option. I did test fit the tires from the pullback racer to see how they fit on the rims. Now the front tires are slightly smaller than their rear tires, but it looks like it would fit on those rims halfway decent the front. Tire fits pretty good. The rear tire is just slightly bigger, but it looks like it would stay on there decently. You could always add some glue if necessary, here’s a little closer look at the finished version. You can see that the front of the car does sit up just a little higher than the rear and that’s, because the the body, shell just hits up against those suspension pieces but it’s not too bad and it looks halfway. Decent doesn’t look bad from a distance here’s, a little more detail of how the body shell originally started, and the finished version.
