  • To be honest I've heard that aluminum and brass are alot alike

  • Great work. LiFePo4 batteries - good choice! However, try and avoid Copper Alloys being in contact with aluminum as they can cause corrosion problems due to their positions in the Galvanic scale

  • I found you mustn’t use any ferrous form of abrasion to clean the Ali. Stainless steel wire brushes work well. I once used a mild steel brush and it was a mess. Also iron oxide grinding wheels don’t work. Hope this helps, love your work.

  • So you could have did the same thing with the aluminum that you did with the brass

  • You have to heat the tank then use the heat of the metal to melt the braising rods.

    nivesknightnivesknight8 måneder siden
  • Aluminum flux is needed in all aluminum brazing operations. you may sort of get a braising effect without flux but it will be very insufficient and likely will not hold through any stress

  • hehe the aluminium soldering/brazing should be done the same way you did it with brass soldering(nice solder job there ;) . I clodderd it up too the first times, try to avoid direct flame and don't get it too hot, just like normal soldering but higher temp, but will not flow like solder. And it's really fussy to work with, only good for backup or if it's the only solution avaliable.

  • Hello, you had to have compartmentalized the tank, to avoid the movement of the fuel inside in the curves and start or stops, a greeting.

    Antonio RomeroAntonio Romero11 måneder siden
    • That would have been a better solution, however this can be mitigated by keeping the tank mostly full.

  • John, all I can say is TIG welder, I practiced extensively (2 years) on AL awhile ago: but yes it does take practice-[the hardest practice to do are aluminum soda cans]...I used a Lincoln Electric 300 series, the big expensive one and pure Argon. Not sure if you got it hot enough, but has to be localized/small area and very hot (plasma) for short time. Gas torch is not very do-able.

  • I can see there are some chinese

  • I've never welded before , but aluminium spreads the heat insanely fast so you have to heat it enough + cleaning the surface helps the stick join much easier. last thing, i think you are heating the rod instead of letting it melt duo the heat of the aluminium .

  • You should invest in a tig welder. It would be very beneficial

  • What did you use to solder this brass gas tank? Did you use flux or immediately without it?

    Александр ИвановАлександр ИвановÅr siden
  • Very well done! But you need a little hole in the Fuel cap, becaus when your Engine sucks in that fuel in your fuel tank will result a vacuum and your engine is running lean or starves because there will not run any more fuel. If you want to avoid fuel spouting out you can attach a little hose on top. But very good work so far. Maybe yout think about a Tig welder. I can recommend you the Stahlwerk WIG/TIG AC/DC 200 ST IGBT, its cheap compared to other inverters but ist welds very very good! And you finally can weld aluminium, brazz and other metals at a high quality. I bought one for myself before 3 weeks and i can highly recommend it.

  • When brazing the aluminum, I don't think you were heating both sides of the edge you were trying to seal. That being said it's incredibly difficult and took me days of attempts and lots of wasted material just to AL braze a small joint correctly :D. Great video!! (as always)

  • It's a cool tank, but in your last video you noted that the car was too heavy and in this video you make a brass tank that's twice the weight and half the capacity of the plastic one?

    Khum DhanKhum DhanÅr siden
  • You need more heat for brazing, that’s why it’s clumpy. I usually try to heat while running the rod across the joint, preferably vertically. Brazing is tough though definitely not my preferred method.

  • So with the alumiweld you have to heat the base metal to temp, then braze. When you keep the flame on the rod you're essentially melting without bonding. I've done really good neat work with the alumiweld rods, and I've done stuff that turned out horrible and bubble gum would've worked better. You kept the flame on the rod, thats why its turning out gloopy and globby. Heat, touch, heat, touch, heat, braze. Everytime you touch the rod to the base metal you're flame should either be ahead of your rod to heat the upcoming weld, or away from the rod. Hope this helps.

  • Aluminum needs a TIG welder as the aluminum will rapidly oxidize in the heat and cause fusion to fail. in fact, the oxide layer forms in less than a second. the AC of TIG will blast the oxide layer off the surface, and the gas will keep it off by blocking oxygen.

    skyliner_369skyliner_369År siden
  • You weren’t using that brazing rod properly. You heat up the aluminum and then run the bead. It gets chunky like that because you put the flames directly on it.

  • I get the plastic tank is ugly, and I admit I don't know the fuel efficiency of the engine, but it seems like a step backwards to get less fuel capacity while increasing weight, especially considering the engine isn't incredibly powerful. But who knows. Maybe he'll take a page out of Bad Obsession Motorsport and add a Safe-T turbo.

  • So, I suggest that you should put a vent valve or a rollover valve onto this fuel tank Also put a throttle return spring onto the throttle servo, just in case it fails in full throttle to return it to idle

  • You failed at welding because the only way to weld Aluminium is to tig or mig weld it.In this case thin aluminum would be done by tig.

  • i love this project but i don't understand if this project is only for see a working v4 rc car or to make a high performance rc car. Why make a complex system like this if there are no better performance? maybe just for the joy of doing it
