Element RC Enduro Kit with a INSANE Jeep FC150 tow car 3D printed body
We’Re gon na have a look at a very special car built by one of our ss4c team members, eric, which is my brother, and look at this guys look at this now. This is element rc, enduro chassis, and it has a 3d printed cap and a wall cage in the coin and the rest is mostly are also skill, accessories that are 3d printed and it has the rear. The bed that is made out of phone so not styrene, but foam and it’s a it’s, a jeep, fc 150 and, as you can see, it is a very nice Music example: Music, Music, i Music. So one of the reasons i’m showing this is that i want to show you what you can do with the 3d printed body and in the link i will uh i’ll put a link in the description uh, where you can find this body. This is uh called, comes from uh from cults, um and it’s it’s, just a really nice body. What we did to it is that we 3d printed the body and he did all the work after that. We found the dashboards to be a bit plain. So we made some changes in that in the design made sure that there was uh interior and well, as you can see, everything came out really nice uh, i’ve, really uh. I designed the the wall gates, which is yeah just a roll cage with everything on it. Room for lights and everything that’s uh, something i designed myself and also 3d printed for him uh.
This part over here, the coin that’s uh another link i will put in the description it’s made by a card called dr newt that’s, got some nice aluminum wings and it’s packed with uh with electronics. So you can see that it’s just an element rc. It started out as an element rc enduro kit, the front bumper is the enduro bumper, you might recognize it and the rear bumper is made out of a phone now. This is quite heavy it’s uh around four and a half kilograms. We measured it it’s, pretty well balanced uh. It showed that it was well koala mode and a bit more weight in the front and some less weight in the rear, and it was also pretty much 50 50 on the on the side. So came out really nice. What can we say about it? Yet? I think the yellow just pops so Music, now Music, Music. As you can see, this all adds up in the weight and for that uh that reason to change out the install the element rc shocks, but the springs are from a traxxas slash and they can handle the the weight of the body better ever tried the the Most stiffest springs of element rc, but we’re not stiff enough it’s, just sucking all them Music time: Music, you, Music, Music, Music, so Music. So you can imagine that this was uh. Quite some work before the paint went, uh went on. The printer came out really nice.
I have to say that and so that that saves you time, but in the end you have to make sure that that it’s all clean enough to get some paint on it, so the false process of Music getting some primer on it, sanding down until you can Put the final coat on it as far as a functionality on it, the there’s, a winch on the front, um he’s, just waiting for the d links over here. So we can put this camera over here, that’s, the last part that’s gon na be on it uh. Furthermore, there is a wings on the on the rear that’s for the crane, so that’s all functional the lights over here are all functional, so it’s got full like it and i think it’s uh. It makes for a really fun car uh it’s, not going to be the best quality in the world, it’s more for off voting, uh driving some trails but yeah it is. It is a great looking uh car as far as electronics there’s a hobby ring 1080 in it, um it’s pretty much the standard in this kind of cars for the 1016 and there’s a homes, hobby’s trailmaster sport, motorway Music. So do you like it? Did you ever use hello, 3d printed body on your of your builds? Let me know in the comments and while you’re doing that, make sure to uh give a like keep a comment and subscribe: Music, Music, Music, foreign, Music, so Music, so Music.
So this was before this time on. This is on the bench one of the cars of our team members eric.
