A spiked wheel for 1:10 scale RC cars designed for winter bashing.
These have probably even more grip in the snow than normal tires in the summertime. Got to be careful not to turn at high speed as the truck wants to flip over due to good lateral grip. Had fun hill-climbing it on slopes I couldn't get up myself on foot :)
Designed for Turnigy 1:10 RC truck but the same attachment mechanism is used by other RC cars too.
Print at medium quality, I found that about 50% infill provides enough strength without wasting too much material.
Does not require using rafts or supports. Drill flat the round bit in the middle of the connection point with a 10mm drillbit. This is the only post-production required enabling printing without supports.
I have included the SolidWorks file should anyone want to modify it to fit other models. Share if you do!
