Tamiya TA04 3D printed parts
Tizer posted a topic in TC Designs...Recently I aquired not one but 3 TA04's almost at the same time. 2 weeks ago I also got in a set of TA04-SS Toyota MR-S bodies. With this whole lot my goal is to build 2 nice TA04's out of the parts I have now, and build up the third with whatever I have left if possible. Ofcourse I was missing a couple bits here and there, so with me being at Shapeways everyday I decided to print the parts I needed. First parts to be finished are the battery holders for the TA04 plastic tub chassis. One of my cars was missing them, and they were easy to make so I drew up a set and they fit great on the first try. In case you want to buy one, they are now available on my Shapeways shop: https://www.shapeways.com/product/C4TDGN5JP/tamiya-ta04-battery-holder?optionId=64338862 Next up is the little bushing/spacers that sit on top of the steering arms when a carbon fibre upperdeck is used. I found a SSG carbon upperdeck for sale at this years IconicRC Revival and bought it, only to find out I needed the spacers. My latest TA04 had the full carbon fibre chassis on it, so it was easy to copy the geometry... But printing them to be the exact right size seems to be very difficult. The third version is in the printer now and hopefully it will fit snug this time
