Does anyone know where I can get a tutorial of how to actually wire this switch up. I went to Jevries and I just started doing my Impala. Thanks

O.k. got it working but am having trouble with the amount of line I need to keep as slack. All I can do is get it lifted but not come back down. Kinda sucks but will be persistent. L8R

The more torque the little motor has the less easy it will come down...Check the torque by turining the motors shaft by hand..if there's quite an amount of resistance it has a lot of torque. You can add a small fishing weight up front to get it down again.
Slack...I useally give it like 1cm of slack.
How many AAA's are hooked up to the motor? It needs quite an amount of V's and Amps to get it to hop. ;)

I got one just one 1.5v AAA running a 2.6v motor. Should I go ahead a run another AAA parallel to give me 3.0v. Would'nt this be to much or should I run a 4ohm resistor to get me the 2.6v from the batteries. I almost there and am trying to sucessfully complete this mod. Anyways thanks for the prompt replies. Any ideas are appreciated. L8R, Capon-E :cool:

Useally motors are running from 1.5V to 6V...and other configs like this. There are also solar motors which run on a way lower Voltage and cannot handle too much V's.
What type of motor are you using? I bet you can just go ahead with a 9V battery no problem there. With the single or dual AAA battery your car will not hop or very poor.
For instance those small N20 motors can handle 6V and slightly more...motors you will find in micro RC cars also can handle 6V as a maximum. ;)

O.k that's what I got. Took the motor out of a micro car. Could'nt find anyone who sold the mabuchi HO motor so i started experimenting with different types of motors. I am gonna start from scratch but push on with the 64'.

sounds like your making progress :biggrin:
on those little guys you have to make sure the ubar is not being pulled back
by the string your using. if it is it wont let it come down has to go straight up
and down. you can add a gide under the chassis for keeping it straight.
or if you use regular string.
it will bind on the motor shaft ,I only use fishing line 10 lbs.
and they work find also needs more power.. and also when you atach the string
to the motor try to put whatever your using to hold it as close the end
of the shaft of the motor as possible that keeps the string from locking
up on itself.
late. :cool:
