Remote Control Car build

Primary tabs

I'm forming a small project team to customize a remote control car.

Specifically, I propose we design a car from chassis up and fabricate much of it using the makerbots and laser cutters. I'd like to recruit someone(s) with electronics expertise to help with custom circuitry.

These cars are really cool. I've built a 1/18 scale electric that hit 60. We could exceed that, if the team is determined.

Perfect "vehicle" to learn more about Inventor and the makerbots. I'm thinking weekly meetings, but I'm open to ideas. I'm also flexible on project goals.

Check out HPI or Tamiya to get an idea of what's commercially available.
