So this is an exciting video. For me, i love a mystery box so so far this is obvious. What i’m going to read it now is all i’ve got um. So, as i said, the it’s, the tour is from the grumpy modeler youtube channel, but he messaged me and he said hi i’m. The grumpy modeler on youtube i’d, like to give you a model that i have made for you to check out it’s a very unique buggy that i designed and made myself. It was designed in the spirit of the old school and unique tamir designs. Let’S crack that box open right, then let’s get into this i’m excited all right got a bag of bits. Oh wow, wow! Look at this thing. Look at that oh he’s got he’s, got a nice motor in there as well wow. What a thing! Let me get this out of the way and then zoom in on car, so you can see camera just putting this stuff away. Oops! Oh my gosh, Music right! So i’m back wow! So i don’t know if i said earlier, but i’ve got to message: uh tong out and see he’s going to tell me all about the case. He basically said unbox it, but don’t do anything with it until i’ve spoken to him. I’Ve got a serious bag of goodies for this. That is so it’s the same wheels and tires different tyres same wheels again. They look 3d printed, got a wing that’s like a tamiya battery box, two of them very cool.
All these are 3d printed. As far as i’m aware, that is really incredible. Obviously, the next edge after this i’ve made this section segment of the video i’ll have been contacted by um and he’ll. Tell me all about it, but um, and he also said don’t. Take the body off just wait because there’s a special way of doing it. I’M. Just i’m blown away by it, so so cool they’re, friction shocks, believe it or not um, and he said that he’s invented and designed, and he said um you’ve got to sort of work them before you use the car to get them working properly, but very light On it and got a battery on so all the weight on this cars at the front end but um, he said they work so much so much better than normal friction shocks and you can tell there look that’s almost like damping like an oil shock. I don’t know what the body’s made out of i don’t know if he’s making that himself but um what a thing front wheel, drive so it’s, obviously very similar to the car. I know which is the of these are supposed to handle superbly what’s a really cool design, right, i’ll, uh i’ll. What i’ll do is i’ll, obviously, as i say, i’ll contact her through messenger now and he’ll. Give me all the proper details and then we’ll come back and i’ll i’ll tell you what he’s told me about this.
That is so so cool i’m uh it’s just awesome. What a thing i’ve! Never i’ve, never seen anything like this before um. Apart from it, the oh, oh, not off, sorry orb orb to the two wheeled front, two wheel drive racing bugger, which we did a video on on this channel. Actually, oh, my god, i’m. Absolutely loving this i’m like a kid in a sweet shop, because i know nothing about it at all, but i know it looks really cool and i know the little bits i do know. I know his cat toss. Cars run really well right, let’s, go message him and then we’ll come straight back so before i bring a camera over and we have a really good look at this thing with the top off you’re gon na be amazed honestly, you’re gon na be amazed um, as I said i messaged or straight away and said right: it’s arrived i’ve made the little brief unboxing video now tell me all about this thing, because i am super well i’m, intrigued by it. So i asked a lot of questions and i’m just going to read you some of the answers very quickly and i’ll say then we’ll have a good look at the cab. I think a lot of this information is important to north of this video. The whole thing is basically 3d printed, a full 3d printed rc i didn’t even know. That was a thing and just before i read this that’s the important bit that’s.
Why tor has sent me this car kindly sent me this car because he’s showing what can be done with 3d printed stuff? Nowadays, i have no knowledge of it. I just knew people i knew it was quite getting a big thing and people were doing spare parts for certain areas of cars never drink for a minute. A full car could be done in one anyway. This is what this is just as brief replies, um it’s it’s, my design. I wanted a chaos, show maxim as a kid and i’ve always been curious about the front. Wheel drive cars since i saw the yellow camel themed one in the magazine. Back in the day when orb came out with their buggies, i started thinking about them again. It’S all 3d printed, except for the tires and the obvious bits like screws, ball, bearings and springs. The cvds are also steel. I have printed drive shafts before, but it’s not worth it for high performance. I’Ve included some 3d printed tires. I’Ve included some 3d printed tires too, but they are only good for grass, as they are so hard tires. 3D printed wow in the bag was also a clear wing which is much more durable. I recommend using it if you risk tumbling iris tumbling with my driving the shocks use teflon tube sliding in a silicone bush. If they are too tight drop a a bit of silicone oil in the shaft and it will help, but usually we just need a few compression extensions after sitting for a while, i think, i’ve included a usb stick with the files um for printing more parts.
If you should wish to do so, and also pdf documents with a full parts, lift bomb bomb means biller materials um. This is i love this bit. I i picked the colours of the parts based on tammy kit, since i know you like the blue arms and yellow sharks and stuff like that, you’ll where’d, you see it with top off and i then asked the question: um what’s, the shell did he make it And of course he made it now. He said: it’s called lw dash, pl air it’s, a special version of the same material as a chasse. The difference is that it forms when it gets hot, so it wears half as much um it’s made for aeroplanes, but um tall likes it for body shells, so um, basically, he’s designed this all himself. He’S made all the parts himself and now i’m going to drink, bring the camera over and have a look at it, and here it is close up what a thing so 3d printing wheel, 3d printed car, but this has got the actual um rubber tires on what A thing it’s i’ve never seen anything like it. It’S uh, yeah i’ve honestly, never seen anything like this that in there my friends is a bar of chocolate that came with it, and i will not be sharing that. I have to be honest right so to get the shell off there’s a little bracket that you just push on. Let me get this correct push and it lifts up, and then the front has got a lip on it as well that um just clips on.
Oh, my god, look at this chassis. How absolutely gorgeous is this thing? He’S even sent me with electronics in it, it’s got steering server, it looks like it’s got a hobbywing, 1060. that’s, just incredible and a mortar in it. Now i did just we’ll just go to the mortar first. He did say he thinks it’s, a 21 turn um, which is just absolutely fantastic. Look at it. Sorry is that in camera i’m, just so intrigued with this thing, look at that, i really am. No. I don’t think i’ve ever seen anything like this. This has got to be one of the coolest things i’ve ever had in my hands, those colors as well as he said, they’re just so tamiya try get a bit closer on the chassis, so you can see it. It’S got this big, brace the whole design of it. If it’s got this lower chassis, then it’s got like a almost like a top deck which bolts to the rear end and then obviously the rear shocks pivot on it so cool. I can’t even believe i i know it’s for all 3d printing. I can’t believe those shocks are 3d printed. I i didn’t think you could do anything like that. I’Ve got to be honest, not not on to make it work. You can certainly see the resemblance color wise to the um tamiya cars back in the day. Cart, yeah. What a thing so obviously rear wheels don’t do anything they just they just steer uh idiot they just they just well.
The free will don’t see. If i can turn it upside down, so you can see it chassis, absolutely incredible. I’M, i’m blown away by this thing, i’ve got. To be honest. I really am wow. Stick in the comments. What you think guys i mean any anyone else running who’s watching this running 3d, a full and 3d printed rc car. Anyone else doing that so it’s got a battery, strap in it and it’s kind of he prefer tor says to use short, is the best, but he’s put those battery cases in and there’s some supports needed and i can just run normal 7.2 stick packs, which is Mega cool let’s have a quick look at the spares. We’Ve got right so now i’ve got a better idea of what i’m looking at. I really do appreciate this shed load of spares. So first thing i had to look at 3d printed tires guys. I didn’t know that was a thing i knew wheels, so they’ve got giving them they’re, not rock hard they’re um there’s, not much in it. I will have to give them a try out. So we’ve got a full set of black wheels and three 3d printed tires. We’Ve got spares wise, we’ve got two front. Arms we’ve got the rear wing. Mount we’ve got the rear arms bumper motor mount we’ve got a spur gear, we’ve got a bag of links, we’ve got steering, we’ve got pulley and differential. Spares we’ve got nim support brackets he’s, giving some pins.
That is just absolutely incredible. Oh and also he’s he’s, even because he said he asked me what uh battery i use on the connection and that says uh i use danes, so he’s even sent me a tamiya to dean’s um conversion super cool, and then he sent me a usb stick with All the files on for this thing – just i know nothing – about 3d printing, but this is absolutely i’m i’m blown away by it. I mean not just his generosity of sending me this thing, but i didn’t know this existed this thing’s just absolutely awesome um. I should have known because when i was looking at spares, it said um spare pulley so pulling for bell. I’Ve just realized i’ve just looked down now and it it’s belt driven. Absolutely superb i’ve seen anything like it. I really haven’t um before i talk anymore about it. I just want to make sure i get the relevant information out about this, because tall’s been so kind to send me this from nowhere, and you know so. As i say, his youtube channel is grumpy modeller um. All the links to everything i’m talking about will be in the description of this video um. So yeah go show me. If you i mean not only just to go check out these things, but all his other rc content, amazing um. He also sent me a link to a video i’ll just play it play on somewhere.
I’Ll just pray, a little clip of it and it’s one of these bashing around in his back garden um, so that video i’ll put that link in the description as well. That video is about eight minutes long and at four minutes fought it. It goes to this car and it’s flying over jumps. Getting some air, and it looks to handle superbly, really excited about having a bash with this really excited um. Also so i’ll put his channel link and that video link in there he’s also give me some 3d links. Now again, i don’t know anything about the 3d printing side of it, but i’ll put the links in the description. Should you be interested in this? I did ask him how many of these cars are about and obviously he’s got a couple. I’Ve got one and they could be because, because, if people use the files that can make their own version of it um, i guess that’s how it works. So he thinks it’s, probably around about 10 12 of these cars in circulation, mega cool mega mega coal, um and and the and the last thing he he wanted to emphasize – and i i appreciate this now when he’s, when he first said it to him. I didn’t. I didn’t really give it much thought, but he said the whole point of this giving it to me so i can show you guys is to really see what you can do with 3d printing nowadays and hands up.
I didn’t know that this was a thing. I honestly didn’t absolutely superb, so i did make some notes um. I just want to make sure i’ve covered everything, um yeah, so the last one is it’s like what’s next to this. Well, obviously, i’m gon na run it um. All i need to do is add radio gear to it and a battery and it’s aware um. I think it’s 20 to 21 turn monitor we’ll run it on two west. So i have no idea how quick it’ll be. I also don’t know in the spares it had that uh blue spur gear and it’s got the number of teeth marked on it. So i don’t know if that’s like a a higher or lower ratio to get a bit more top end out of it. I have no idea but um yeah i’ve got to be honest. Last night i jumped on youtube onto his grumpy modeller channel, and i was looking at some of the running videos of this thing it’s. How can i explain this if someone had said to me before i’d seen this yeah, you can get full rc car 3d printed. I’Ll kind of i wouldn’t have thought. It’D have been any good if that makes sense, but when you go to his channel – and you see these things running, sh it’s, just a 110 fast car that jumps lands, suspension everything is on and, of course the beauty of it is again something i’ve, never really Thought about, if you do have a 3d soft print setup you you’re, never gon na need one for spares ever and you can just keep upgrading it and upgrading it yourself very cool market to get into market that’s.
Probably the wrong word. The niche of that particular bit of the hobbit very cool, indeed i’m – not saying i’m, going to get into it, but um wow. So i really hope you’ve enjoyed this video, my friends as you can see, i have um, so i guess i’ll end it here. So again, tor just a massive thank you for uh sending me this thing: um i’ll get it on the rc legends. Facebook group and i’ll get it on my instagram channel, because this thing needs to be seen: doesn’t, it absolutely quality.
