  1. @colin wow those CF parts sure looks the thing. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  2. Yeah, i must agree i really like this team work to get this car built. It`s gonna be so cool once itยดs done. I have been getting some more parts for the build, like all titanium rods for steering and suspension.. i also started just a little bit doing the fine work on the chassis plate, but donโ€™t have that much spare time as we are renovating our house..
  3. @Colin wow this looks really good. Must agree about the double-sided tape, yeah why not ๐Ÿ˜Š. I have a 3D printer and could probably do a test print. I say probably because I have never used the printer, got it two years ago ๐Ÿ˜›. My plan is to try it during my Christmas holidays.
  4. I'm on the look for a DF03 Carbon chassis, preferably the white one, but the black one is also of interest. If you got one or know where I can get one please let me know. Cheers, Odd-Arne
  5. @Colin it will be very interesting to see how it turns out. I would very much like to have one. But as you say it will not be 100% like the Nimrod one so I think I will also try to get one made. I think I will get it 3d printed and so I don't have to make it old school for now. This is just because I don't have that much time for rc right now, but I really want to see this project done ๐Ÿ˜Š Really looking forward to seeing your end result..
  6. A little more done on this project. I got the donor car today I started making the lower chassis plate. I used 2mm CF plate. Iโ€™m not sure if this will be the one I have on the car in the end, I think I will get one CNC just to be more correct. I started with printing the layout on a paper which I used tape to keep it in place on the CF plate. I then took a knife and cut out different holes. I then used a drill to make the holes for all the screws. Next step was to use the dremel to cut out as much as possible. I now need to do the final work to finish it. Iโ€™m getting some help from the fantastic people on TamiyaClub to design the missing parts. In addition to @Colin helping with the airintake @jonboy1 is helping me replicating the upper to lower deck, I gave him a picture of it and some measurements from the Dyna Storm and the Nimrod lower deck design and he came up with this. Looks like things are starting to take shape and I can "soon" start the assembling
  7. I'm impressed, this looks really good. I'm sorry but I can't help you regarding seeing how the intake is shaped. one thought, is it possible to make several small channels from the wide intake in the front? this way the air would be forced the way you describe?
  8. Found this picture on Mokei Kagaku FB page. ( I tried to do a search to see if this thread already have been started but couldn't find anything) I think the Black Edition looks really nice.
  9. @colin Here are some pictures from @joe999, Jochen's other build thread hope they will help?
  10. Wow, that is so cool.. You got this far already. Looks good.
  11. Yeah, that is one way, or two ways to do it, that would be pretty easy to do. I would love to do it in carbon fibre, that would be epic. I for sure see your point, thay said, for me this is not a question if it works good or not. For me this project is mainly to build an Nimrod Dyna Lightning as close to the way Nimrod did them self. For sure I will not be able to find all the original Nimrod parts, and for the parts I can't find i will take the time or cost to get an replica part made. Once I have done this project I might have a look to see if the Nimrod parts can be made even better, if I find the time and motivation to do so.
  12. I would for sure like to get one as close to original Nimrod as possible with a little improvement to the mount, that crack on Jochen's part. I also think that 3D printing is the way to go on this part.
  13. Yeah i can understand that.. it twists and turns all places.. Not sure what could be used to mold it, my first thoughts goes towards some sort of clay. But not sure if there is one that is not that fragile. Anyone have a good idea of what could be used?
  14. Hi @joe999, Jochen. Is there anyway that you could try to take some measurements of the motor air intake? Maybe lay it on a paper and write some of the measurements on it. And do it for as many as possible sides of it? This would for sure help for 3D modeling it.
