Where to even start on this project... This is the continuation of the 3D Printed Rc Truck V3.
I remade 80% of the drivetrain and it's now a full-time 6x6 rock crawler.

The whole idea is to make everything easily replaceable if it breaks and all the hardware you need is screws and bearings.
Axles, "differentials", transfercase, driveshafts, wheels, chassis and so on is all 3D printed.

I have done all my prints in PLA with ~50% infill and 4 perimeters. Holds up well.
The axle shells could benefit from being printed in a more durable plastic, maybe copolyester.

Parts that need to be printed several of:
3x Truck_V4_Axle_Diff_Gear1
4x Truck_V4_Axle_Diff_Gear2
4x Truck_V4_Axle_Diff_Halfshaft
2x Truck_V4_Axle_Diff_Halfshaft_Front
6x Truck_V4_Ujoint(Connects to driveshafts)
2x Truck_V4_Ujoint2(Outer steering joint for front axle)
3x Truck_V4_Centerdiff_Ujoint
10x Truck_V4_Ujointshaft_Ujoint_Cross(Spider that connects the Ujoint brackets)
4x Truck_V4_Ujointshaft_A1(1 for each driveshaft)
3x Truck_V4_Frame_Shockmount1
3x Truck_V4_Frame_Shockmount2
*2x Truck_V4_Frame_D4(ACC)(if you're printing the other Dx parts)
2x Truck_V4_Rim_Front
4x Truck_V4_Rim_Rear
**10x Truck_V4_Tyre_Treaded_Solid

*Truck_V4_Frame_Dx(ACC) is an optional tray for counterweight/tech storage, requires a large printer or splitting

**Truck_V4_Tyre_Treaded_Solid is ment to be printed in Ninjaflex or similar soft material.
Recommendation is to modify infill extrusion width to for example 50% which makes it underextrude on the infill, making a soft and mushy tyre that's nice to drive with.
Can also be replaced with Tamiya truck tires like these: https://goo.gl/gqUhKS
