Sand-brat recent update
miniguy77

bumper of super champ is also my home made. I bent and cut 2.5T aluminum to build that bumper. That's been very long since I started the champ project, still not finished yet. I need a paint and decal work left, basically, it's my laziness that holds me up to completion....Thanks for your comments!

Thank you for the comments! The track is one of club members property. He opened this track as a rallye track, but this day, he spared our old buggy club members a day. Track was just so wonderful. I wish I can own one as my retirement plan

Grasshopper with rear suspension and gearbox upgrade with 3d printed custom parts
miniguy77

thank you guys! it's good to be back in tamiyaclub,...I guess I just forgot!
My 3D printer is tevo tarantula, it's a really budget model, but just like most of other $300 under printers, after few upgrades to the printer, it does print well....I should say it meets the minimum required specification. I recommend better ones like prusa i3, if you have little more budget.
I use PLA instead of ABS. There are pros and cons for each material, but in general PLA was more strong but a bit more prone the hard impact. But PLA was more easy to print, with out any smell.

Thank you MAD-BEE :-) well I already have my front suspension parts 3D printable & ready...but I am thinking of upgrading it to suite tamiya CVA oil shock without hurting the original look. I will get back with that when ready!
