wtcc5s Tamiya Dyna Blaster

This thread continues (finally) ^_^

I printed all parts and threw them to the others. Where they caught dust for two weeks. Today then I had one of my favorite ways to spend a day: Watching motorsports and fiddling with R/C parts.

It started with the rear section and the chassis plate. I drilled and thread formed every screw hole before installation. Overall I am pretty happy with all the 3d printed parts:

Because of the use of Yokomo cardans, the rear mounts are wider and I cannot use the R/L-mount-connector anymore:

After the chassis preparation I could finally install the tasty new gearbox:

Everything fits very well. I was just surprised, that I didn't need the spacer for the forward gearbox mount...

How do you like the shocktower/shocktowermount?

The motor protector slides without gap into the rear chassis end:

The only print I don't like are the rear hubs. The support was a bit ineffective and makes one side of the hubs look fuzzy. Luckily that is just look. The Yokomo axle has slightly different bearing distances what forced me to make my own hub...

Both sides finished:

The battery will fit too :P

Lets move to the front. This is "All new" how Xray would advertise. I reduced the complexity of the front, by redesigning the bulkhead and the body post plate:

Front arms fitted:

Then without pictures made, I added all the small parts left and now can show you the result of this conversion.

A little comparison with my shelf Blaster:

Then I fiddled with the TBG body a bit:

While at it, I found the sleeved damper color to be wrong on this conversion. I also ran out of screws and now go for titanium screws everywhere. The high-torque servo saver had to move as well and the replacement was tuned with the aluminum cap:

Blue stuff:

Shock build:

All new parts installed:

Just a normal Dyna Blaster...

A personal suggestion for the Dyna Blaster, keeping in mind that its body is metallic red...

@kontemax: But his runner body (for which this chassis is/will be) is blue :P

Are those red dampers painted or anodized? On the picture it seems that they are painted…
