Twin Motored Nikko Thor and Dictator
« on: March 23, 2012, 10:17:20 »
These were always my favorite Nikko‚??s! Twin motors, independent suspension, 4 wheel drive, digital proportional controls, changeable crystals‚?¶great stuff for ‚??toy‚?Ě grade rc back in the day!

I picked up both of these for a great deal. The Thor is mint, hardly any signs of usage. The Dictator was a little dirty but it cleaned up well. I did have to repair the front motor mount, replace the missing steering servo arm, and tap the pinions down tight again on the motor shafts, but now it runs great.

Nice score.
I was watching both of those on ebay.
I remember the aftermarket springs on the thor.

That Dictator is ridiculous clean.

These are my favorite nikko chassis to. I grew up playing with the twin motor thor. When I worked at Radio Shack I sold a bunch of the Rock Crushers. I prefer the single 540 motor over the smaller dual motors. More power for going over grass and pulling wheelies. But really nice pair you have there!
