Steam-ready Driv­e­train

RC Car Action - - PROJECT -

The ac­tual driv­e­line was go­ing to be a bit more com­pli­cated. First and fore­most, I needed to make sure that the power be­ing gen­er­ated was go­ing to flow through an Ax­ial trans­mis­sion. With the help of GCM Rac­ing’s front mount plate and trans­fer case, I was able to move the trans­mis­sion to the front of the chas­sis. This kept the driv­e­train ac­cu­rate, low, and out of the way in prepa­ra­tion for the steam unit. With the me­chan­i­cals sorted, I needed to find a small but pow­er­ful steam en­gine.
