What Happens When 3D Printing Meets Small Scale RC Models
This is a work in progress project, a 3D printable front body guard for the Audi R8 LMS body for Kyosho Mini-Z RC cars. You mount it on the chassis and it extends under the front of the Audi body to increase strength on impact when racing with the RC car. This is a quick and rough design intended for testing it out, if it works out well in protecting the body we are going to refine the design further. You are welcome to try the body guard yourself and report how it works for you.
This is 3D printable replacement front body mount for the Audi R8 LMS bodies for Kyosho Mini-Z RC models, originally the R8 body is for the AWD series, but it can also fit on MR-02 or MR-03. You can print and use this replacement if your stock front body mount breaks and you cannot find an original replacement or don’t want to wait for such to arrive. The body holder should be a perfect fit and provide enough strength and durability.
Here is our design for plastic drift tires for Mini-Z RC cars that are made to be 3D printed using PLA filament. Make sure you use PLA and not ABS as with ABS there will be some shrinking and the resulting tires may be hard to fit on the rims. If this happens, could happen with PLA as well, you can try soaking the tires in hot water for a bit to soften them up and then insert them on the rims of the Mini-Z RC model. They will become hard again when they cool down and should fit nice and tight on the model. You can experiment with these plastic drift tires, they should fit on all on-road models of Mini-Z such as MR-02, MR-03 and MA-010 etc.
