Default 3D Printed Range Rover Classic

This rig started of as an original 1980’s Tamiya Hilux chassis that was straightened, converted to rear 3 link and a HSP gearbox in the front. It ran well like this but I fancy a change so I’m going to be using files from thingiverse to print a Range Rover body for it. The plan is for it to be ready for the UK Recon G6 which is in just over a month so I don’t have long.

Heres a link to the body that im using: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3253387

Iíve started printing some of the parts for it, black isnít the best colour to spot the imperfections but itíll be painted in the end so itís not too big of an issue. Iím planning on converting to front 3 link and doing the spring/shock setup similar to the full-size Range Rover with some 3D printed parts.

Started taking apart the front end to 4 link it, used the front leaf spring mounts as the lower link mounts on the chassis as I did on the rear using some scale hardware.



Im also thinking about slightly re working the rear end by mounting the 3rd link lower down and making a new axle truss that looks a bit better. As originally the Hilux was built with performance in mind I configured the links so the axle was on a slant for better driveshaft angles. This works well but looks a bit weird on a scale vehicle so Iím going to sort that out

Iíve started on the front 4 link, using the flat bar link mount as it gives me more space for the servo arm and made a link mount for the rear out of aluminium.


Also being testing some 3D printed straight axle adapters for the highlift and TLT axles copying an old RC4wd design. I need to beef them up a bit if I were to use them in the final model.

Finished the front 4 link, should have pretty scale flex. Need to start designing the spring holders for the axle and frame rails and then start on the rear end 4 link.

Printing continues, decided to experiment on doing some scale damage to one of the front wings, looks okay I think but going to keep this body straight. The body is going to be very wide, about 230mm so the wheels should have a bit of tuck in the end.

Not sure if anyone is reading this but hello!

Mocked up the ride height, I think it looks about right?



Started making the rear lower links, cut them a little too short (itís meant to be 313mm wb) so going to have to use extended rod ends for them like on the front.

Got the rear links done with the longer rod ends, got perfect wheelbase. Now just need to do the upper links, peoples should I use my original upper link mounts or mount it lower down onto the frame rail like at the front? As the old mount was just an ill slap it here and see if it works situation, I donít know much about link positioning and how it affects things so Lemme know!



1. To the original high mount



2. Lower down to give more interior space

I'll bet this would have a bunch of "likes" if they hadn't pulled that feature. I'm following along too. Very cool what you're doing.

Thanks everyone, it really helps hearing motivation when doing a build as i tend to lose interest otherwise . Building to a deadline helps as well, got 1 month and 2 days left
