1-10 RC RTR-X Throttle Bodies Bonnet Insert Design by SlantedRC

by slantedrcdrift

A more realistic version of the throttle bodies based on the parts installed in the 1969 Ford Mustang RTR driven by Vaughn Gittin Jr. and in the HPI scale version shell.

I recommend trimming a hole in the bonnet area and either glueing the part to the inside of the bonnet with lexan-compatible epoxy, or with 1-2mm thick double-sided tape. Personally would recommend using tape instead of glue to avoid damaging the paint, and the small gap between the throttle bodies and the body might just add that extra touch of realism.

It's up to you, and comes down to the printer you use, but personally I recommend printing the flutes and base seperate, removing the supports, and painting the parts individually priot to installation. The holes in the flutes can either be used to fasten each part with screws,or for the installation of LED's.

Product had been printed and tested, and flaws in the drawing repaired. V1.2 (current) yet to be printed, tested and reviewed. A solid (one-piece) STL will be uploaded soon.

This design was published to be used and printed free of charge and not to be distributed or sold for profit. (My contribution to RC Hobbyists to try and keep it as affordable as possible). Printing, installation and usage is done at your own risk.

Please post a photo of your installation on our Facebook and Thingiverse wall if you opted to use the design.

1-10 RC Redneck Snorkel / Military Truck Breather Design by Slan

by slantedrcdrift

Special request by a fellow RC enthusiast on Facebook. I guessed the dimensions so they're not 100% to spec, but rednecks don't give a f%ck.

Mount either using a 3mm screw, lexan-compatible epoxy, or double-sided tape.

Product had not been printed and remains untested for now.

1-10 RC Hoonicorn Hoonicorn Intake Bonnet Insert Design by Slant

by slantedrcdrift

Design inspired by the infamous Hoonicorn Mustang driven by Ken Block in the Gymkhana series. I've split the design into two pieces, hoping this might alleviate some potential issue during the printing of the item. The blower section needs to be superglued to the base to secure it.

I recommend trimming a hole in the bonnet area and either glueing the part to the inside of the bonnet with lexan-compatible epoxy, or with 1-2mm thick double-sided tape. Personally would recommend using tape instead of glue to avoid damaging the paint, and the small gap between the throttle bodies and the body might just add that extra touch of realism.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these items will come out 100% on the first go, but if there are any issues whatsoever, please reach out and let me know so I can fix whatever needs fixing.

1-10 Snap-On Toolbox Small Design By SlantedRC

by slantedrcdrift

Special request by a fellow RC enthusiast on Facebook. I made the dimensions up, so they're not 100% to spec. But in order for some of the moving components to work properly, this size should be sufficient.

Use small screws to secure lid - plastic simulation hinge "screws" were added solely for assembly and rendering purposes (try them first, but if they suck - screws it is)

Drawers are inserted with a tilt-slide motion. Stoppers were added to keep drawers from falling out.

This is quite a small item, so please sand down bits where you need to, to enable moving parts to function smoothly.

Product had not been printed and tested, and flaws on drawings repaired. Version 1.2 (current) yet to be printed, tested and reviewed.
