What Happens When 3D Printing Meets Small Scale RC Models
An easy and useful way of adjusting the height of the body at the front of your Kyosho Mini-Z RC model is to control the position of the front body mount. By adding a spacer under the front body mount you can lower the front of the car’s body to make it more aerodynamic and stable on the track. So we have designed an easy to use spacers to go under the front body mount to help you adjust the body height at the front of the card in a more easy and straightforward way without having to rely on shims. The 3D printable front body holder spacers are available in two different heights, to make it easy for you to adjust the height more precisely – 0.5 mm and 1 mm. Make sure you 3D print them using finer layer height such as 0.1 mm for best results.
A set of 3D printable spacers for the front knuckles of the Kyosho Mini-Z MR-02 and MR-03 RC models. These are used for regulating the height of the front suspension as well as limiting the maximum travel of the car’s wheels. We have the spacers available in three different sizes in order to help you get finer tuning ability, so here are spacers height 0.5 mm, 1 mm and 1.5 mm. You can also combine multiple spacers to get the desired height adjustment. Make sure you use finer resolution for printing these out as they are quite small and need to be precise, we have used 0.1 mm layer height for a great result. Also you might need to lower the extrusion speed a bit while 3D printing the part for best results.
The Audi R8 LMS body for Kyosho Mini-Z RC cars is designed for use with 98mm AWD Mini-Z chassis such as MA-10 or MA-20 and is not intended for MR-02 or MR-03 RWD Mini-Z models, even though it will fit on them as well. When using the Audi R8 LMS body with a rear wheel drive Mini-Z RC model you will notice that the side body clips are not fitting tight over the chassis like they do on the AWD chassis. We have addressed this issue with a custom 3D printable side body clips for use of the Audi R8 LMS body on MR-02 and MR-03 chassis removing the chassis play inside the body. We are already using these on a Mini-Z MR-03 chassis with Audi R8 LMS body and our 3D printable body clips work great.
