Daves RC FCRX7 13B Sound-a-like
OK, well I stumbled across this with my TA05 counter-steer setup. The rear spool diff is kinda worn out and a bit wobbly, so it makes this vibration at high revs which I reckon sounds pretty damn close to a 13B. Which fits nicely with the shell because if it were real I would 13B-REW power this thing B)
Unfortately it happens at too higher revs to really make that sound when it's driving :(
But yeah, just though I'd share this random find...

Edit April 2012: I have had heaps of questions regarding the video. Despite what Tamiya, Spektrum or Futaba says, it is possible to configure your own radio to work with the MFC-01 (or any other Tamiya multifunction unit). What you need is a four channel radio that has dual rates. Dual rates have two settings, 0 (off), 1 (on). In 0, have your travel range set at 66%, and in 1, set it to 100%. Run through your MFC-01 setup with dual rates set at 0. Thus, when you engage setting 1, you access the special functions. You will see me flicking switches during the video. That's me activating the dual rates.
Hope it works for you guys, because it works in every single one of my Tamiya models that use an multifunction unit - Tiger, Pershing, Leopard, Panther, and Scania.
Junk Yard testing
Got some more work done on getting the truck finished. I think I have the drive line and steering all figured out. Suspension is MUCH improved. Transmission is a lot more simplistic after being converted to single speed but as you can hear in the video the gears are still cooked. I think it's the plastic case of the trans that flexes under load that lets the gears slip.
