Please, introduce yourself :)

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 en castellano... ¿Cuántos estais interesados?

by dlb5

Pues eso, este mensaje obviamente no es para todo el mundo, pero me gustaría saber qué parte de los 185 miembros actuales del grupo es de habla hispana y podría estar interesado en que creáramos un foro paralelo en español o que mis publicaciones estuvieran como poco en inglés y español.

Parece una tontería, pero he escrito toneladas de "info" que no sería moco de pavo traducir. En función de vuestras respuestas actuaré de un modo u otro... en vuestro tejado queda ;)

Scale TPB build

by Live_wires


Hi all! I wanted to share the progress I've made on building a more scale 4wd rc truck using the TPB body. I had built the Ossum jeep and liked how it all went together. For this project I ended up cannibalizing that truck for its electronics and axles and printing a modified version of the jeeps chassis. I may revise the frame as it has a lot of flex at the length it is. When I mount the body it may strengthen it. Tell me what you guys think.

Getting started?

by francisdb

Wow, this all looks amazing but I am a bit lost on where to start. I have a vandal RTR ready to disassemble, am interested in anything fast enough / with enough clearance for a dusty forest off road track.

There's just too many choices :-) Do you have some base model part list that I could print? Preferably without any options to keep things simple. Then I can work from there to customise.

Thanks a lot!

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?

Time for a new Truck Body, any suggestions?¿?

by dlb5

Now we have 2 diferent chassis with a bunch of configurable options each. Most important one in both cars is the wheelbase.
If you take a deep look to my car makes you will know i used 270mm wheelbase for both of my cars with the OBTS chassis, and i wanted to use 270 in the MTC Chassis but i had to give 10mm extra in the front part to have enough space for my sensored motor.

How would i do it?¿?
As i did with FJ Cruiser, a good start point is a good 3d model, not designed for 3d printing but with as much details as possible. So if you know about a good car model and you can find a good 3d model of it in the internet, we can try from that model to create a 3d printable one.

The goal this time would be to make a enough resistant body to protect electronics and maybe roll without damage, but using as less plastic as posible, you know my FJ Cruiser Body is extra heavy, about 1,2KG.

So, any ideas, any suggestions?¿?

Please somebody, help with this!!!

Yuran Liu made it!!! The first real MyRCCar Make :)

by dlb5

But he made many more than that. I think he understood the spirit of this project. Be the first one is specially risky. You have to "blindly" believe it will work, and you also know there will be extra work, for sure.

I think if MyRCCar would be an exact thing and rigid in terms of posibilities and parts to use, he wouldn't probably start the project. But over that, he undestood that i could help him to fit his not-listed parts, and contributed a lot just with his observations and suggestions.

Yuran had a lot of kind words for my work, also for my mistakes. But now that he can start running with the car, (i'm sure he knows very good the hobby level) i'm afraid of his words turning the opposite... I hope we know about his impressions soon.

Thanks one more time, Yuran. We go on improving it as soon as you want.

New little video testing the buggy in a wet day.

by dlb5

So here it is:

If some of you is thinking about printing it, tell me before you start so if I have improved some of the parts then I can share them with you. Example: Stronger Butterfly.

Have Fun!!!
