I have Two Heng Long upgraded with the metal my Panther is all metal from the gears, sprockets running wheels and tracks, but you have to break in the motors & gear boxes, breaking in the motors can give you as much as 20 percent more power! And most important of all you have to add a larger heat sind to the stock board to keep it cool pulling the extra weight! I have the HL Panzer III also with metal gears, & sprockets but the track is still plastic with my custom paperclip link connection for each plastic link!

My tanks have battled in two of the local clubs battles and have done well, see below! I am also building a Tiger 1 with all metal upgrades and will post pictures here within a week! I have a lot of pictures to show the process if you are interested!
