On the Crabfu Steamworks website, I-Wei Huang takes RC models and mods them into steam powered models that actually work. Above, the R/C Steam Hauler.

This was a project that took some time to put together. It was a fairly easy hack job compared to some of my other creations, but it took a while to find the right parts for the hack job. I started with an used Tamiya King Hauler that I won from ebay. The chassis and most of the parts were in great shape, and it had ball bearings upgrade / hop up.
