Starting my all metal drive train OpenRC car. I'm determined to follow this through and get it working. I ordered all the drive train parts today. The only thing I will need to work on is the CVD's. I may need to modify the wishbones if I can't get the CVD's from Conrad.

I think I'm finally comfortable enough to make the parts I need using 123d Design. :)

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.

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?

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?

first I thought it would be difficult, but it is very easy to remove the mold. Not need to use anything as release agent. The silicone do not adhere in ABS.

Any recommendations for places to get bearings? It would be nice to maybe have some recommendation for several regions such as Europe, North/South America, Asia and so on... What do you think?

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

Slurry is fine, but acetone is dangerous in general.  I would suggest liquid vinyl  which can be found in the form of Aquanet Super Hold non-scented hairspray.  Same temperatures.  Works amazing.  I usually start @ 100C and drop to 90c after the first layer.

Something to note is that the troubles he mentions in the 2nd video about not achieving fast forward speeds should disappear with multi-rotors the further from the CG the lipped ducts are.  When the rotors are distributed, the pitch moments from thrust would swamp out the Coanda effect. It's mainly a problem for single central hovering Coanda lipped ducted fans.  Or so I theorise. ;)

Ok, for the next project is it Ok to source parts from Hobby King? I mean is HK available to all? Or is there a better alternative? I'll be buying stuff there and design around these parts. Let me know what you think.
I'll release the project in a few weeks....
