Is there an all metal running gear version of the OpenRC car? Being from the USA, it can't include any Conrad parts. 

I would really like to get back into getting this working. The PLA printed drive train just doesn't work for me.

Another thought.. If someone has access to ordering from Conrad maybe I could order a batch of cvd's and have them available for other openrc builders. I could send payment via PayPal if that would work.

I'm new to RC world and don't know a lot of sources for the OpenRC Truggy project.  Does someone have good sources and/or recommendations for the parts.  The various BOMs I've found around are not complete.  I've found sources for electronics, but would like recommendations on what to buy  (cheap, but not junk).  I also can't find a US supplier for the CVD shafts from Conrad and can't seem to find an equivalent.  Can somebody help me out?

I didn't verify availability from HobbyKing, but surely something can be substituted using the Aliexpress link I posted.
I'm not an active RC enthusiast, so my resource links are lacking.

Plan B: get an online friend in GB to get the part(s) shipped to there first from Conrad; and then have this friend forward the mail to you.

Odd issue trying to print these... I get 3/4 done and it fails at the same point.  Changed multiple variables it always fails right as it starts to print the "top flange".  Every print has failed at roughly the same height when the extruder strips on the filament.  if you cut the front 1/2" or so off the face of the rim, that's what we have.  We've printed plenty of taller objects and ones w/ longer print times.  Using a Replicator 2X ... anyone have ideas?
Update 2013-04-06: Latest version (Rev A.9) uploaded. Rims for 1:10 RC Truggy (or other similar car) These rims are compatible with 320S Zombie Max tires: http://losi.com/Products/Features.aspx?ProdId=LOSB7213 Update: Added files w support.

Have an idea to make most of my 4WD truggy parts from glowing filament. Should be cool to drive one in dark.

Like the motor boat https://cults3d.com/en/game/motor-boat-rc-spiral-vase-printable I wanted to make another bigger boat. So I just scaled up my boat https://cults3d.com/en/game/boat-with-impeller-spiral-vase-printable to about 200%. Only the transom is half as thick. It can be printed in two parts: 162,5 mm (aft) and 163,5 mm (bow) height. Additional it has now a impeller drive and rudder control. The complete rudder control unit can be taken fr...

I like seeing other people do 3D printed turbo machinery. Are you the designer?

Can you send me one to model? I can return it with a few samples.

As of now we are 4000 members in this community!! To celebrate this here´s a new logo.
The idea was to make something less complex than the original logo and thus making it easier to make stickers or put on a shirt or whatever.
I´ve posted them together with the original one for anyone to download and use.

To those of you who printed your wheels in ninjaflex/whateverflex, how have they held up? How would you compare the wear to what a normal tire would experience?

Working on the openrswift.

Looking good, just missing the front piece which is giving me a hard time to print, but I know I'll get it done :D

I finally cut the pieces myself, and works ok, the glue does most of the job so it's enough with no tabs at the joint. Right now I'm working on the canopy, which fits entirely on a 20x20, bed (wining pose :D), and as soon as I can I'll get my hands on the wings.

This might be done before than I expected, the more I advance the more excited I get about this wing ;).

I need to find another slicer for now due to a Slic3r gap fill problem in Slic3r 1.2.9 that affects the printing of thin airfoils.  It's halted my ability to develop.  Is there another slicer I should be looking at for multi-extruder printing?  I'm about to give Cura a proper go.
