Author WillieStroker? NoButiWillLetYourMom ( ago)
that guy must have built the rc grave digger from the ground up roll cage
and all. because there's no was I would buy that peace of shit look at the
welds. He damn sure can't weld looks like a pigeon flew over it and took a
shit on it. that roll cage is going to fall apart.

@rcWizzard so like avengers exhaust ?

Author bigdaddymatty17 ( ago)
That sounds like the real thing!!!! nice!!!

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @baptistedeschrevel Me too. Depends on the final placement of the
engine, but a zoomie style, going down rather than up. 

Author Baptiste de Schrevel ( ago)
i rather prefer the sound of your stinger ! hey btw , how are you gunna
make your new exhausts and where are you going to place the pipe ? (are you
gunna make it a pipe header or a zoomie header?)

Author xXCREEKSTARXx ( ago)
even so small a v8 sounds great...8 cylinders are a unique piece of
engineering history in sound and power :D 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @MrBurnTec I'd say 6 to 7k, including the engine. But have not added
up the receipts yet.

Author MrBurnTec ( ago)
@rcWizzard do you have a rough guess how much it cost in the end with all
the parts and engine and wheels when it is fully made ??

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @MrBurnTec It's all scratch built. If you mean the engine, check out
ConleyPrecision. com

Author MrBurnTec ( ago)
how much does all of that cost ??

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @Sancho1388 So go play with your balls! I'll play with my Conley.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @mitchrox7 Go to ConleyPrecision. com. 

Author Mitchell Smith ( ago)

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @mudpuppy4life Runs on nitro 20%. Bore .875 - Stroke .625 - Solid
lifters - Cam has 280 degree duration & .059 lift - Siamese Porting 6 to 7
lbs - 3 to 4 HP at 12,000 RPM - Glow Plug Ignition. That would be a short

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @chevybogger9 It does, they're rubber mounted.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @copkilling745 12,000.

Author alex richter ( ago)
i think it needs motor mounts

Author AmericanThunder ( ago)
That thing is HOLY SHIT awesome. Seriously cool!

Author derneuschooer ( ago)
absolutely awesome!

Author 845jdog ( ago)
@rcWizzard thats prety sick 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @845jdog It's in the transmission housing. 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @blklightning330 4 or 5 HP. 20% nitro, for 4-Strokes. 

Author 845jdog ( ago)
do u haave a clutch for it 

Author Bullet Tooth Tony ( ago)
how much power does that make? and it runs off regular gasoline rather than
20 or 30 percent rc nitro, i take it. i hope it runs off the latter,

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @funnyboyswag I got it used from e-Bay $1650. Check out the new
version at ConleyPrecision. com

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @issackool4evr That's going to be a few months.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @MullinPerformance I do want to increase the final gear ratio, But,
before I invent another wheel, or gear box rather, I want to see how it

Author MullinPerformance ( ago)
I hate to say this because I love the project but I think its going to be
underpowered. All the video i seen and from what i read, I cant see this
going more than 10-15mph at best. I'm guessing that this project might
weigh 60 pounds or so when your done? I like the conleys but I think there
more show than go...

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @alexisdabest1 It's not drivable yet.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @crazydogg1313 You can find them on e-Bay, if you're lucky. Or, check
out the new Version at ConleyPrecision. com

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @baptistedeschrevel Hope so.

Author Baptiste de Schrevel ( ago)

sound ??

Author MrTeckman01 ( ago)
@rcWizzard lol

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @ElijahWheeler In my pocket.

Author ElijahWheeler ( ago)
@rcWizzard Where Are the valve covers?

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
To - @MrNEVEX One cylinder rather than 8, nah, I'll stick with 8.

Author Andre Neves ( ago)
@rcWizzard i think a 50cc chainsaw engine will be better

Author TROJAN P ( ago)
all this work u might aswell slap on a supercharger :D p.s. love the work,,
ur a true engineer bruva

Author Andre Neves ( ago)
@rcWizzard thath sound scares me . this is gonna be nice 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@Bubba9Gump I'd rather have the Super Charger. Never seen a 1/4 scale

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@pelonchasf97 Yes used from e-Bay. Check out the new version at
ConleyPrecision. com

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@Hogasofa 20% Nitro for 4-stroke engines.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)

ConleyPrecision. com 

Author 57 Films ( ago)
what kind of fuel does this run on?

Author XxxGoofballXL ( ago)
how much for a engine and were do i find one 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@wildkev1010 The length of the pipes will effect the sound, but I don't
want to make these any shorter. 

Author K sweeney ( ago)
is there any way you can tune the sound of the conley exhaust ??

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@mxfreedom155 4 or 5 HP.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@freestyleskier132 Won't know until I have it drivable. 

Author mxfreedom155 ( ago)
nice video. do you know how much hp it puts out?

Author naturalyshocked ( ago)
omg, that must be really difficult not burning any holes or other melting :
) awesome job

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@naturalyshocked Hollow. .035 wall.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@Rcslashchannle1 Even if we do strike up a deal, with the other things I
have on my to do list it would be 2 years before I could start it. FYI -
Custom one off items are expensive. Check out store.RC4WD. com .

Author naturalyshocked ( ago)
solid or hollow?

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@naturalyshocked MIG welded. They're ugly, but strong. Mild Steel. Not
4130, to hard to bend.

Author Lucas goodmanCharlton ( ago)
I need front and rear axles/differentials like the ones on ur grave digger
that are 16 inches long give me a price an I'll see if we have a deal

Author naturalyshocked ( ago)
that's not vry expensive, considering my 0.28 CI isabout 200€ : ) did you
tig weld the chassis? what material did you use for the chassis? 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@mach1stang310hp $1600. from e-Bay. Check out the new version at
ConleyPrecision. com 

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@kiriakoskakos Plan to film it this weekend, so Mon or Tues.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@blakemckee It's been 1000 to 1500 hours so far.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@tdizzleRC16 YES.

Author Tyler Ford ( ago)
what is your plan for this? are you going to drive with a reciever like and
rc car or are you going to use it for show?

Author justBlake ( ago)
I was just wondering how much actual time was spent doing labor on this
project, I am an impatient person so to me I would spend as much time
possible on completing a project. I was just wondering how much time you
devote to this project..

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@blakemckee How will knowing the amount of time I put into this project
affect your project???? What are you saying "Never works out" ??

Author justBlake ( ago)
I noticed you've been working on this for some odd years now, and I was
just wondering; How much time (labor wise, not waiting) have you or do you
put into this each week? The reasons for my questions are I want to do
something simular, but probably smaller like 1/10th scale pickup truck..
but i'm impatient. Never works out. Haha.

Author shuffle953 ( ago)
@rcWizzard just sand the welds down??????

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@simcaP60fan 4 or 5.

Author simcaP60fan ( ago)
@rcWizzard how many horsepower does it have would like to know

Author Matt ( ago)
love the sound of that deep tone american muscle

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@rrrtbds12223 Yes, and it shows. The welds are ugly, but strong.

Author Jim Jon ( ago)
sweet, did you weld that frame yourself?

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@NebunLaCap Check out other video's to see the valve covers. Not drivable

Author Carson Selensky ( ago)
Hey I love this project of yours. That is a huge undertakeing. Keep it up I
am exited to see the finished project.

Author rcWizzard ( ago)
@MrRfitz27 Well with Glow Plugs rather than Spark Plugs this version could
be considered a diesel. Check out the new version at ConleyPrecision. com.
Sorry though, it is NOT a diesel.
