Please read this post complete to better know each other and to try to form a group of work

I'm not doing a database and i think thingiverse won't do with the data we write up here in the forums. Maybe you are shy as I am. Anyway you know a lot about me: my nick, my city, my language, my interests, my apparently skills, that i'm trying to "make my name" in this world to get a good job, that my "art skills" live in my back...

So YES, I want MyRCCar to be a vehicle to "make my name", as founder and original designer of some of the parts or models. If you take a look, all my "things" are shared as NON-COMMERCIAL. For me this means you can't sell MyRCCar printed parts. You can print them one time or 100 for you or your friends or to have spares but never recieve money in exchange for them.

MyRCCar can be a vehicle to "make my name" but not only for me, i want it to be for you also. So lets imagine you are working on a new robust chassis to build monster trucks. You could ask for some help or opinion to us and also publish it as part of the project and ensure our attention to it. MyRCCar is no more than a keyword, not very reputated nowadays, but I hope it will be much more in the future if you start building your cars and getting fun with them. I sent a photo of the horrible new buggy to my cousin, rc lover, and he is crazy looking for a printer in wallapop now...

Ok, I think is enough about me... what about you?¿? Some ideas:

  • Tell us about your RC Car Knowledge and if you are an expert or know good some type of them.

  • Also it would be fine to know if you have some design skills and can do part of the coming work if the group works.

  • Please tell us if you have some experiece printing, wich is the max. printing volume of your 3D Printer and if you know some designing rules for 3d printing.

  • Finally, those not 3d printing rc car relevant things that will help us know you better, as if you like climbing or painting.
If you just want to be in the group as a viewer just tell us you respect all the personal info from group members and that you are not "spying" for other people or brand.

It sounds like a lot of work to write up all those things if you did not do it for your profile... anyway I like us to know each other so we can know how much "manpower" we have in our hands, and remember this should not be part of the profile that thingiverse makes of us, anyway I don't know if this posts are accesible without joining the group or accesible for SEO robots and so on.

So please, respect the info you get from the others as private and don't share with third parties without consent. The same way, I can't ensure any kind of data here is secure.

I can see part of this "data" in the profile of many of you... anyway if you want to tell us something "extra" things it will be cool too!!!

Awaiting for your answers :)

New Monster / Crawler Design

by dlb5

I have bought another kit to build a new MyRCCar (including Vandal, Trooper center diff., and electronics). As with the already made parts you can build mostly everything from a on-road car to a SCT, buggy or truggy, this time i want to use new parts to build something like a Monster or a Crawler.

I would like them to share the disposition of most elements in a higher chassis made in three main parts, center, front and rear. Changing this front or rear chassis you should be able to build a Monster or a Crawler, or maybe a Hybrid :S !!!

Are you interested in this build?¿? I know there are already 2 or 3 high quality designs shared in thingiverse, some have awesome gearboxes for crawling or variable length transmissions. I think those designs center their attention in being as much printable as possible. That's a very good thing for me, but i always want to be able to get my car nearer a hobby level "thing" than a "toy" thing.

I know many crawling cars are using brushed motors and ESCs and is a very cheap solution. You can buy both for about 10€. But please correct me if i'm wrong, now some low KV brushless sensored motors and ESCs are working good for crawling.

I have experimented moving my Truggy FJ Cruiser at very low speed with a 10.5T sensored brushless, but with the same setup and config it can also run at 50km/h.

So, are you interested?¿? Would you like to take part of the project?

HSP parts, why?¿?

by dlb5

They are easy to find in worldwide sellers, as in amazon, ebay, aliexpress and also i have discovered them recently in "tomtop", a new store for me but they have a clear stock by warehouse and good sending services i think. I would give them a try.

As you probably know, I made my MyRCCar without any HSP part. I could say i used 02024 fr diffs, but no, i used quanum vandal ones, they are exactly the same. I did dthis becouse i could buy a quanum vandal kit in hobbyking from UE store very cheap, about 55€. So i got a lot more of parts more than "02024".

So why?¿? You know i previously made OpenRC truggy using the creator recommendations for sourced parts. The worse thing about those parts were the CVDs. They should be bought in conrad.com and they were about 50-60€, just the CVDs.

As i plan to build another MyRCCar and i don't want to buy new parts, yesterday i dissasembled the openRC project. So to avoid buying new cvds I made a new "TYPED" of front and rear steering blocks to fit this CVDs without having to change the lower and upper arms length. The wheel is about 6mm far from car long axis than it was with vandal CVDs, so now its about 12mm wider.

So HSP parts, for example CVDs, bought from china can be about 2-5$ pair. So you can buy 4 CVDs to "give it a try" to a 3D printing project for about 6-10$ or about 50-60€... em... em...

Maybe one day, owr plastic car is so strong that metal parts break before plastic ones. Untill that day comes, i think we can use cheap parts and see if we can break some of them.

I have printed during this night (about 8h) the whole suspension system for this new (my second) MyRCCar. I'll upload a make next so take a look there to the new "TYPED" steering blocks if you want.

So for each CVD we can do a different suspension system if needed. It's not much work one time you have the appropriate resources to make it quick.
