Working on some new axles with built in truss and a bit simpler design for the panhard mount and m2 nut retainers for the king pins.

On the rear axle I tightened the tolerances for the lockout hubs and added extra material for added strength.

Well forgot to post a picture of the new housings but their working out nicely!





Also working on printing out a new set of seats based of the JX trim level seats you can get in the samurai!

oops forgot to update this bad boy but here we go!

The seats came out AWESOME and really happy with the end result




Also made a new back cover... THIS TIME WITH A OPENING LID!




Also finally painted the inside of my hood


Currently looking to fix some looseness that's developed in my knuckles and print out a new steering column and steering wheel! then eventually look at getting the front an rear lenses colored more accurately.

Man, you're seriously designing and printing some desirable components!

Awesome axles, seats and trick-truck-tonneau-thing...

Thanks man! the cover is based off the rally tops sport cover for the samurai (which I have on my 88 daily driver)
Axles have been fun they have 8o KPI and caster though still need to work on getting ackermen closer to right.
Seats I'm really really happy with cause those were a pain to scratch make in tinkercad just to get the cushion pads an bolsters somewhat closer to the JX seats I'd LOVE to have in my samurai!

Great job T Tank, its an amazing build and looks absolutely fantastic!! I'm amazed at what you have done with your skills and a printer. ..

I'm a technological cave man so I'm loving all the new printed parts that are available today for the less talented.

Its truly amazing what 3D printing has done for the hobby we don't need a little cnc lathe an mill to make parts or lots of styrene plates glued together to make custom bodies (though still impressive so see folks to that)

ok so I have been printing all the files you have in the Thingiverse link and am super excited to start building this. But I've noticed that some of the parts in your build are not in the Thingiverse link. I can't find the front floor section, the "stronger" trussed axles, sport rear cover, transmission assembly, some of the link mounts, and interior detail parts...shifters, e-brake, cup holder, also the windshield insert with wiper arms/blades. Any chance you could add these files to the thingiverse link or email them to me?? I will upload some pics once I start assembling after I get it all printed out.

I'll double check through my file list I didn't expect anyone to print the floor if their gonna use their own transmission (cause the one I made has been a slight... pain to print consistently)
But I should be able to get almost all the files on thingie in the next couple of days.

Iím still really new to the 3D printing world and only kind of play in the custom RC world so I figured Iíd just follow your build and see what I could do. I can build a 1:1 all day long but to me thatís completely different than these.

I appreciate the files and work you put into them!

I added a good bit of the parts so hopefully that gets ya going further just make sure for parts like mounts that you print at higher infil and double check to make sure they'll hold screws without issue. Most of my stuff has been eyeballed on length on the rods an ends but hopefully everything works for ya without to much a hitch.

Only tricky part might be that idler gear from a losi mini/losi mini LST/exc smash/ but luckily a lot of the old losi 1/18 used the transmission gear parts

Printing and assembly has begun! I still donít see all the parts in the Thingiverse file though.









And hereís a picture of my 1:1.
