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.
