Hi
I am new to the fora, but long time reader.
after have spent most of my soon 40 years with rc hobby, i now feel that i would move up a step, and make a quarter scale rc car from scratch (more or less)
Since i am on early retierment, i havent got the posibility to buy a skellenger rear end, and therfore i was thinking if it is posible to find some plans for it, if so i would like to have a go on a homemade one :D
i havent got cnc gear, but i do have 2 hands sitting the right way, and have a melting furnace, a milling machine and a lathe, so i feel i should be posible to make my own ?

Any help regarding plans would be werry apriciatet.

Best Regards
Martin

I don't have any prints and the original ones don't exist. Here are a couple pics that may or may not help. I do have a few unmachined center housings, rear covers and ring and pinion gears available.

Hi Mike
Thank you so much, i think i will be a big help :D
Just if i end up digging some money out of the garden, then whats the price for a
center house ?
After all to me it looks like the hardest part to make.

Best Regards
Martin

These might help. I don't recall where I found them, but I think they were online somewhere.

That's funny c103110. I drew those for John Foster years ago. I forgot I posted them. I thought I pm'ed them to him. Those are from a skellenger so you should be in good shape Martin.

Your welcome. I'm glad someone kept a copy of it. I lost that years ago on another computer.
