Thundershot Thunder Dragon Terra Scorcher Fire Dragon Super A5 Part

Recommended Posts

About a year ago I got bored (as most with this chassis do) of breaking A5 parts. So designed a Super A5! Much, much longer pin engagement, and reinforces. I have been it ever since including some big impacts that have written off a tub. Still solid. It is now available on my Shapeways store CTE RC.

Here's the Super A5 next to the original. Taking advantage of the 58.5mm long M05 suspension shafts to extend and increased the wall thickness on the suspension mounting.

And all installed. Need m3 x 20 machine screws to replace the original mounting screws.

A5 parts have become very very expensive and the aluminium replacements are over £30 with shipping. This is quite a lot less than that, and as a bonus is available in loads of colours.

Hope you like it.

Cheers!
