I am brand new to the forum, after being referred here by an RC Universe user. I have a Tamiya King Tiger 56004 (80s model). I want to upgrade the electronics in it, and make it newer. So far, I have found the barrel elevator kit, and maayybe a controller board, that would offer sound. I would like to upgrade the drive motors as well. Has anyone done an upgrade on a tank like this? I do not need or really want recoil action. I am in the middle of building a Tamiya Sherman M4 Full Option Kit, and have some ideas to try and make the old KT 'better' but thought I could come to the pros! The other thought I'm having, is to buy a new KT.. or a Tiger I and make it Michael Wittmann's tank.(Always looking for a reason to buy RC Tank kits LOL)...and keep the original just that..original!
All the best
