- Remove the body
- I removed the front wheel assembly because i saw that I could do it and it gives a more compact package
- After removing the front, there were two wires for steering. I clipped one and tested to see if it still worked.
- It still worked so I clipped the other wire
- Now you have to remove the tires off the rear wheels leaving the hubs
- drill a hole a little smaller than 3/16" through the right rear wheel. I drilled mine slightly off center so as to miss the axle
- Mount the body with the battery compartment up so you can replace the batteries. Pay attention to where the on/off switch is located
- The wheel you drilled should be sticking off the side of the cage so the rod you attach to it can move freely
- I purchased 3/16" threaded rod about a foot long and after attaching two nuts to it screwed it through the hole I drilled
- I also purchased an 3/16" eye bolt and attached it to the threaded rod with two nuts, one nut was extra long. You need to lock it all together
- I tied a piece of nylon rope to the trigger mechanism and tied the other end to the eye bolt
- As you can see in the pictures, the eye bolt starts in the top position and swings down, gaining momentum
- Wheel rotation is important. In my example, I use reverse to actuate the trigger
Remove the body
remove the front end
I duct taped a piece of wood to the circuit board area to prevent any short circuits.
