Default Fallen's 3rd (and final) Twin Hammers

I was fortunate to score a built, but not run kit Twin Hammers in a local trade. It came with all of the electronics and light bar. All I've done to this thing is paint some stuff and install my FPV system.

The Twin Hammers is an awesome FPV platform. Scale looking interior and ridiculously stable suspension combined with a drivetrain that goes over just about anything combine to make an ideal FPV car.

Anyway, here's some photos:

Electronics are the Castle SW3 with the 3800KV motor. Stock gearing, with an ESC and motor fan. This set-up does not need even one fan, but my FPV set-up runs hot so I want air moving through the electronics bay.

I painted my wheels with Krylon Fusion. Tan Khaki for the wheels and Spanish Moss for the beadlock rings. Both matte.

The lightbar is an RPM 4 bucket light bar, painted tan. I added the RC lights LED kit for that light bar, and power it off of the RX. I only added the lights so that when I'm driving FPV and go into a dark area, I can still see. And they work!

Speaking of the FPV system, it's a Spektrum video TX and a RunCam Micro Sparrow. It's powered off of the XH plug from my 2S LiPO.

I made a lexan cover for the battery tray. This is mostly to protect the XH plug which runs to the FPV system. Delicate wires and such.

I made a shift lever as I burned my shift servo with improper end point adjusting. This sticks up through the interior so I can shift it by hand.

And finally, I painted the cage with Krylon Fusion, Metallic Pewter. I actually don't really like it, and wish I'd left it black, but since this isn't a shelf queen, it'll probably end up that way soon enough.

I plan on only driving this on 2S and keeping scale speeds, scale sized jumps and hopefully ot too many crashes. I actually drive it mostly FPV which is a shame because the Twin Hammers is a great looking car. I miss seeing it drive, as I have the view from the driver's seat mostly.

Have fun! The Twin Hammers is still a rad, capable and scale looking little car.
