  • Another BRM

    I finally got my printer back and its working about halfway. That is the single head extruder works but the dual head extruder doesn't. Anyway, now I need to get out and clean up these parts and assembled. I modeled up the chassis with a partial engine, transaxle, side tanks and cockpit.

    All I have to say about the chassis is WOW.

    Puts my lame motor plate and suspension work to shame. That's amazing detail.....great printing!

    Can't wait to see it running!

      Yes, very nice detail on the body and chassis. I'm looking forward to seeing it all assembled and ready for the track.

        Finally found some spare time to paint and assemble the chassis. The white posts (once sanded to length) will be glued to the body and are held in place like VTECFOUR does it with threaded inserts and 2-56 screws. Now to start on the body to get it to fit over the motor and the 22166ff and 22125 tires. The Chassis weight in at a heavy 79.4 g and then I tried adding 7.5 grams of lead in an attempt to get it to stick to the track better. Also need to locate the driver and steering wheel onto the chassis. It took about 2-1/2 hours to clean the support from the chassis so it looks like I need to get the dual head extruder working on the printer so that I could use the water soluble filament for the support material.

          Heavy is good...more weight is better...maximum weight before lap times suffer is best

            High cg makes it tough.....the great deal of detail affects the handling....but boy is it pretty!

              I put the side tanks on line the real McCoy thinking that would counter the cg issue but it didn't. I'll have to complete the body and then try so other ideas.

            Cobra, Great work again Mate
            Personally, I've never really been that quick on a track, so for me, the extra detail is awesome.
