Good Day,

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! 

Any leads? 

All the best

Hi Super,

Any run of the mills Clark board will drive the original single motor KT and provide sound and the rest of the turret functions (elevation of the barrel and the rotation of the turret). You do need to change the programming so it will support single drive motor with a servo clutch for steering.
