Open Wheel Kit

I've developed an open wheel kit designed for the MR-03 that uses screw holes found on the rear end of the PN alloy motor mount.

I designed this so that you could run your racer open wheel but still have protection on the front end. I used the XYZ DaVinci 1.0 3d printer and Simplify 3d to slice the 3d model. I used TinkerCAD to draw up the design and save it as an .STL file for printing.

The chassis is a 98mm PN2.5 with A-Arm kit. I'm running zero offset Wide wheels up front and +3 offset Wide wheels in the rear. The esc and motor are Kyosho Mini-Z VE board and Atomic VSX 5000kv. All the holes were drawn into the model but the printing is not precise enough to leave a perfect hole so I use couple small drill bits to open them up.


The kit is four pieces all screwed together-


Attach the box to the motor mount-

Attached the rear diffuser-




Now the wing. I sanded the bottom of the base of the wing just to get a flatter more consistent surface-

Now attach the front wing. This is pretty cut and dry. It uses the existing screw holes for the nose clip-


In total I've spent ~15 hours printing and designing to get what you see. I need to give the front nose clip one more redesign. It's very thin at front edge. Earlier versions of the wing were larger which I may end up going back to.

Here are a few other things I made-
