Custom 3D-Printed Hot Rod [READER’S RIDE]

Jason Suter designed in CAD and used rapid prototyping to develop his custom Hot Rod, which is inspired by the classic ’32 Ford Deuce Coupe style. The body is 3D-printed in SLS nylon while the chassis is laser-cut out of aluminum. Most of his driveline and running gear is aluminum, sourced from the RC crawler world and adapted for use here. It is built around an Axial SCX10 gearbox and rear axle, with a Wraith driveshaft connecting them. The front axle is an aluminum hop-up part designed for 1/14-scale Tamiya trucks. The power system uses a Hobbywing Xerun 120A-SD V2.1 controller running a 7.5T brushless motor on 2S Lipo. Jason documented the entire design/build process in amazing detail HERE and check out the video below of some of his initial test runs.
