What are you guys using for a motor and ESC? Have you guys found a "perfect combo" yet?

Also this is the latest and greatest version of the car right, STL Files For OpenRC Truggy Rev B.3? As long as I print the .stl's in that folder it should work for me right?

I'm starting to print parts for a Truggy. I'm hoping to get a feel for what people are using for infill and material combinations.

I have a Stratasys machine so I'm stuck with either 100% infill or about 20% infill. I recently figured out how to hack the DRM on it though so I should have the ability to ABS, PET, PC, and some Nylon. (haven't done much testing with them yet though.)

Hi, sorry for lack of updates lately.
Anyhow in the beginning when I printed the wishbones In ABS I did so with a 100% infill. Now I print them in Nylon with 30% infill.

I have just recently started to use three different materials for the diffs. ABS for the gears, Nylon for the casing and Polycarbonate for the Axle shafts. This has been the most durable combination for me so far.

How much does print quality matter?

My printer isn't making anything as clean as the parts I see here. Anyone with a less than perfect printer that has succeeded in building a  truggy?

Well, some parts needs to fit good together, and some parts needs to be very durable. Such as drive shafts, diff plates and such. Other from that I don't think the quality matters much. Especially not if you talking about the looks of it.

i thought T-glase was for clarity, so maybe perfect for a shell or windows?

Is it possible to buy the front and rear, and central diffs? I printed them but don't seem to fit.

I have printet the plade called "Wishbone_Plate.A.2.stl" and as you can see in my early posts they dont fit to the Reely dogbones :-(
Is see the downloaded files as a big confusion between a lot a versions and WHO know what parts fits to witch versions. In the file (mess) I find files called "Wishbone Test Front.A.2.stl" and "Wishbone Test Rear.A.2.stl", they are 4mm shorter??
What file should I print to do this right?? Yes I need them to be shorter but is the "test wishbones" the right ones then??

So am I correct in assuming that if I print the newest revision number of each part in the original Git repo they will all fit together properly?

Well they really don't fit, or am I missing some thing here?

I’m founder of a new form of technological review, that is the review of Technology with responsibility of assimilation into the human life in mind.We are a non profit organization centered on public advocacy with the purpose of new policy development.http://www.ResponsibleAssimilation.org is in its infancy ,meaning right now is the best time for reviewers to jump on board this inevitably historical movement . One of the things you might help with if interested is, helping us in advocating for a  “drone operators license” of some kind. Such things are better dictated by the users during development, responsibly. Rather than the public demand the government do it in a blinding state of hindsighted haste after lives are lost . I firmly believe that if the users and developers of the unmanned vehicle community come together they could self-govern what is rapidly becoming  a potentially dangerous air traffic environment for passenger commuting flight . You MUST do this yourselves, responsibly before tragedy not after! Im interested in your thoughts.             best regards, Jason Eyer

This looks like one of those Makerbot feature projects. You know, something that will make you use up 5 kg of filament just to build it : ) Very cool though...
