These are all looking great guys,
I picked up one of these last weekend and made a start on the build,
What esc are you all using?

Hardest bit of the build so far has been deciding on a colour scheme 😂

Nice idea of Tamiya


Well, I like the idea of a trike... but Tamiya made a few mistakes:
  1. they should have made it a reverse trike
  2. they should have lowered it by a few inches, keeping CG as low to the ground as possible
  3. they should have used a brushless-motor and place it in the wheel, no gears needed anymore, no transmission-losses of any kind anymore

I made a proof-of-concept for them and anyone willing to give it a try:

I am what I teach
That's kinda neat but you missed the point that these little trikes are spoofs of actual delivery vehicles in Japan.

Sorry to hear that, Moparren. I completely overlooked that and assumed it was a crossbreed of a mobility and a golf car.

Here is the new body version. The Dual Rider. Same mechanicals, just a different body and driver figure with articulating arms.

Slipping


I built this model in January and have been having a blast with a 2s lipo and stock motor. Recently I have noted that it has begun to slip. I know it could be a number of things from pinion gear on the shaft to the spider gear differential to the shaft engagement. I'd like to go ahead and bullet proof this trike to run with stock motor on 2s lipo. When I saw Tamiya released the one piece axles I was tempted to begin the process but I noticed it doesn't work with the kit wheels and tires. What wheels do work? Is there any easy solution to my desire to upgrade it without making it look unlike the box?

Hello ODO. If I may ask, what brand and type of 2S batteries are you using that fit the Tamiya Trike battery holder?
