Complete Shopping List to build a MyRCCar

by dlb5

All the MyRCCar project are around the same sourced parts. We could consider they are common 1/10 parts and you can source them from different brands and shops.

This list could be helpful for you to consider every little thing you have to buy, how many orders to how many shops you have to do, the shipping costs etc.

As I live in Spain, I will choose some shops convenient for me. I hope some of you can share other lists with other shops more convenient for other zones of the planet :)

Hey! Many examples here, but you won't need all of this things to make a MyRCCar. Think carefully if you need each of them.

Electronic Parts:

Now other "mechanical" parts:

Car in kit to make OBTS buggy/truggy or MTC chassis HK Quanum Vandal Kit ; HK Vandal ARR version

I bought most of this things in different orders, wich usually needed 7 days to reach my house from the EU warehouse for 0€ shipping costs.

Please, introduce yourself :)

A reply to this post is mandatory if you want to stay in the group

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 :)

MYRCCAR 1/14th rally truck

by Olivertwist

Hi everyone, one quick topic to share with you my RC dakar truck project.

It's printed out of ABS (chassis), PLA (body parts), HIPS (Bottom covers) and Colorfabb carbon fiber filament for the arms.

This chassis is amazing to print and to assemble, Thank you so much dlb5 and everyone adding upgrades!

The only issue I have is that the width is too much to look like a real 1/14th scale truck with the wheels being out of the body. Anyway, this will not weaken my ability to BASH LIKE CRAZY!!! :-D I've got a good feeling that this truck will be very able on offroad terrains!

I will make my own rigid axles in a future development to go out making some rock crawling.

Now I'm waiting for my differentials. I will post again as soon as I have installed them. Cheers!

Steering hits arm

by francisdb

As you can see in the pictures below the steering is hitting the arm causing it to break easily

Are there any versions where the steering bracket is mounted a bit further away? I seem to be having enough space inside the wheel.

Designing a 2 speed compatible gearbox, help or ideas welcome!

by dlb5

Personally, the funniest MyRCCar config for me is the MTC Chassis Independent Suspension Version in high speed mode.
But I recognize I run out of torque in some slow speed situations, which also makes the motor get hotter.

So I can go slow-mo with the gearbox with a lot of torque or run high speed whitout it, but I want both things and change between them just with a button in my Radio.

By now, I just imagine a sliding axle with 2 different gears which would enter in contact with other 2 gears, but not simultaneously. I could design something like this but I think there is a problem:

If I change speed while running, with both motor and center diff spinning at high revs, I think the side of the gear teeth which will enter in contact after changing speed could get damaged.

I had to do something similar with my motorbike going back home one time I had an accident and broke the clutch stub. I had to find the best revolutions to change the gear and it was kind of tricky!!! "Great experience!"

So I normally would give this idea a try and it could probably work better or worse and for a while. But this time I ask you for Ideas and Help so maybe we can have something more interesting soon!

So, what do you say?¿? Interesting path for developement?¿?
