well here we go..for die cast especially those scale 1:18

alright..first you pull ou tyour die cast out tha box





and then you unscrew the original chassis and built your own chassis..here I use a see through styrene (actually plastic)






and then put these gearheaded motors in it... I use 4 of them...(it will lifts your die cast slow..more in stylin' stands though)



if you use other motors (those big ones, make sure it will have enuff power to lift ..cause big doesn't mean it will raise everything!!!)

and if you need wiring diagram just surf for an example her eon LIL aiigghhhtt..


good luck man....


my opinion on juiced die cast...make it hops or stylin' like the real thing....I did the escalade it hops just like that thing was on XTC pill man.. too hard and too fast
