Having had a preliminary look at my new HL pro T34, I reckon the metal hull may help with the weight balance. The plastic hull is so light with all the metal running gear at the back I keep thinking it's gonna pull a wheelie!!!  :D

Just got round to watching the vids in my tea break.

Looks like some new ideas have gone into the metal chassis, totally redesigned gearboxes to fit rather than make model fit around existing.

Slip ring for some reason I thought needed to be central, but guess not. Hopefully not too expensive as only ones Iíve found cheap enough to consider are from China at $20 - $30 and not certain if right size to fit the tank.

Ian.

Very interesting.

This T34 has recoil fitted to it too.  The only ones I have seen so far have been BB.

I noticed that but to be honest I think that style recoil is not the greatest. I will say servo mod is better but only available on IBU2, TK20/22 and ElMod Pro but Taigen could of considered it.

Hi Ian,

I have not used the servo recoil yet, but have 2 shermans which I will be installing them on over the winter I think.

I have 3 of these Taigen recoil units, and all seem good.  The weak spot seems to be the micro switch which controls the motor that winds the barrel back into place.  I replaced the ones on mine with direct replacement units from RS, and now they are very reliable.  I like the way they pull the barrel back sharply on firing, and then slowly wind it back into place.

Like I said I will have a better comparison when I have installed servos in the Shermans.

all the best

Paul
