  • en my recent 5E3 build

  • they are my recent build with some vintage components like Philips caps made in Holland and Roederstein caps made in W. Germany.

    one of cabinets is 18″ wide version like the early 5E3. Fender changed the width to 20″ right after some of the transition models. even there were wide panel 5E3 at ’55.

  • en ’54 Fender Tweed Deluxe 5D3 pics

  • this wide panel tweed deluxe 5d3 came to me with weber 12a125a speaker a few months ago. it was a very good combo and the price was fair with the new skin. but, I couldn’t stand the blue color of 12a125a. everything else was good to me and my friends.

    I’ve tried a like new ’51 p12r without bell, re-coned ’53 p12r came out ’54 5C3, black ’61 p12n, and this ’51 p12q.

    p12q is known as one of the original speakers for fender tweed deluxe. but didn’t have a chance to play with p12q before. 

    p12q breaks up early like p12r. it was my first question while I was searching this speaker. and the question has solved.

    I was obsessed with vintage jensen speakers a while ago. especially with p12n. but it didn’t work well with 5d3 because of the breakup point. or the family and the neighbors. 

    then p12q came into my mind. the sound was great like p12n even at the lower volume. and breaks up early enough like p12r in my imaginary world before I actually got this speaker. and it came true. I love this setup and won’t change the speaker again.

  • en fender tweed champ 5F1 1956 with 6 inch speaker

  • this 6″ speaker has the model name 6EV on it. I guess it’s Oxford from the 6EV. Oxford 8″ was 8EV-29 .

    this Champ had some noise issue even without any input signal. it came from oxidation and fixed instantly with EML contact cleaner. I don’t use the infamous Dexoit anymore. the residue from Dexoit caused some problem on the vintage cloth pushback wires. EML is still the best for tube pins, input and output jacks and plugs, and potentiometers so far.

    the filter caps were alive but the volume level was too law and didn’t sound like a Champ. this Champ sounds getting alive while the new caps are broken in already. the replacement is 33uf+10uf+10uf like my old Champ amps.

    the texture was nice with GE black plate 575. but turned out it sounds great, I mean more like the Champ sound with RCA black long plate 12ax7 from late 50’s. I prefer 8 inch speakers but this 6 inch Oxford still sings

  • en Yokomo MR-4BX

  • MR-4BX series has been produced for only a couple of years. the first version came at ’06 and replaced with B-Max4 which was different from previous yoke buggies at ’08.

    MR-4BX series is like the last blood of traditional Yokomo to me. and I see the same blood on Jconcepts BJ4. 

    a few prototypes on Japanese magazines were not far from MX-4 YMP until 2004. they put a slipper clutch, moved the motor mount forward, put B4 rear arms and losi style steering knuckles, and so on.. through early ’06
    my friend who has been working with Yokomo and other japanese rc companies told me their CNC machine was never stopped for a couple of years to make new prototype parts. I know it never stopped before MR-4BX. but more than a few MR-4BX prototypes have spotted on Yatabe arena for years.
     

    I have managed to get a nicely used Worlds edition last month. and took some pics with my factory edition. they both came at ’07.

     

    the differences between them are main chassis, F/R shock towers, top deck(s), steering, rear bulkhead, and a few misc parts

     
     
    Front End

     

    MR-4BX Worlds came with a new camber mount which allows only the longest upper rod setup. also the steering is different than previous 2 versions

    this new camber mount can be installed on older versions as well

     
    the original and Factory edition’s front tower provide 6 points of upper rod mount position. the tower is compatible with the original through Worlds. and the inside position provides pretty much same result as Worlds’ front camber mount
     

     

     
     
    Steering

     

    the steerings are quite different. I hope I can feel the difference while I’m running this Worlds edition. but, didn’t have a chance so far.

     

     

    this steering was introduced with MX-4. prototype MX-4 still had older servo saver. and the first time I saw this was in MX-4 kit.

    but the difference is the angle. this steering system on MR-4BX is tilted for better handling.

     

     
     
    Chassis
     
    this 2 piece structure was came from the prototype and applied to the production models through the 1st and Factory edition. but Worlds edition came with 1 piece chassis

     

    MR-4BX Worlds came with this 1 piece chassis with 2 extra holes for new steering system. please ignore the stainless screws on the Factory chassis. I’d go back to the black steel screws.

     

     
     
     
     
    Top Deck

    the top deck, now it covers the rear belt. and new camber mount is here

    Factory edition had 2 piece top deck like the original version. but the rear piece was improved that older one has clearance problem with the belt

    the rear top deck from the ’06 original version
     
     
    Rear Shock Mounting

    there were a few guys tried this before Worlds edition came. the shocks were moved to the back end of the car.

    also they put a camber mount like the front end

    the original and Factory edition had same suspension geometry. the shocks can be moved to the back end with this stock mount plus a few tricks

    the new aluminum part which holds the the shock tower is changed along with new bulkhead and camber mount
