The Mission

I accidently bought a 1/12th scale RC body: http://www.killerbodyrc.com/page/products.aspx?cid=12&sid=28 I really dig the Martini Racing design. Did I mention I also own two Lancia Delta HF Integrale in Martini Racing trim (sadly, only in 1/10th scale :) )? They are so gorgeous (don't let my girlfriend know...). Anyhow. I have various 1/10th scale chassis, but the really cool LC2 body won't fit 'em. I thought about converting a Tamiya F-10x, but then I decided to go for a newly built (printed) chassis - I always wanted to make my own RC car.

The Idea

  • Luckily Daniel Norée did some awesome work on designing a 1/10th scale F1 car. I decided to use it as a starting point for my project.
  • I needed to adapt it to the body size (170mm width, 235mm wheelbase)
  • I wanted to use standard 1/12th scale wheels, since I didn't want to print them for various reasons

The Result

The Building Instructions

  • First, print all the parts
  • Get all the screws and nuts needed:
    • TBD
    • TBD
  • Get all the ball bearings needed:
    • 4 * 3x8x4 (front wheel hubs)
    • 2 * 12x18x4 (rear axle)
  • Get the wheels needed
    • 1/12th scale foam wheels:
      • Front: TBD TBD
      • Rear: TBD TBD
  • Get the electronics needed
    • Standard 540 motor and matching ESC
    • Some RC
  • Build
    • Screw drivers depending on your screw head types
    • Threadlock
    • Pair of pliers

The Learnings

  • Use a smaller motor - 380 type would suffice
