3D Printed RC Buggy: Version 2 (RWD)

Files can now be found at Cults3D


I finally feel finished with the V2 Buggy that I've been working on for over a year, on and off.
This has been a huge project with many iteration so I appreciate any tips if you like this model!

Pretty much everything is printable on this model, even the drivetrain. It uses steel driveshafts/dogbones but the rest is plastic and holds up quite well.
It's currently rear wheel drive only, which is the way I like it.

You can run it with 1-3S batteries assuming the rest of your hardware works with it.
It's possible to run 3D printed rims and tyres, but also bought wheels if you print the adapters to 12mm Hex.

I'll make sure to do "how to build" videos on my youtube channel so stay tuned for those.

Most of it can be printed in PLA but some parts require Nylon or similar.

~800g of filament.
57 unique printable parts.
If nothing else is mentioned, part should work fine in PLA.

These need to be printed twice:
BuggyV2_RearSusp_WheelshaftA(Print with Nylon)

If running 3D printed tyres/rims, print these twice:
BuggyV2_Tyres_Front(Print with Ninjaflex, low infill)
BuggyV2_Tyres_Rear(Print with Ninjaflex)

If running 'real' RC tyres/rims, print these to suit:
Offset will depend on the offset of your rims, print one and test.

You should print these in nylon to make them last, other plastics don't survive if you have a strong motor:

I would recommend printing these with PETG, Copolyester or even nylon, PLA is unreliable for these parts:

These are optional but recommended for bought rims:
BuggyV2_RimWasher (Print one for each rim and use as a washer on the outside)

This helps you push some bearings into place without damaging stuff:

Epic wheels for trashing around:

Some hardware might depend on what shocks and rodends you use!
I've spent hours just on these notes so please let me know if something seems incorrect.
