This is how we did it. With our LEGACY Chassis v.1.1

First of all this this beauty here was our role model. The one we strived to recreate miniaturized.
We let you be the judge to tell how well it succeeded. Our aim is to get the authentic look as much as possible then test it to its limits.

Chassis v.1.1 (Ford Mustang ’67)

This is a Legacy Chassis! Click to v.1.3

Chassis dimensions

Front Wheel Track170mm
Rear Wheel Track170mm

This is our very first model! Please keep that in mind, since this one we went very far in terms of chassis innovations.

We strive for an ultimate universal chassis because we wanna use it under many 3D printed car bodies. So that’s why the slidable parts.
The chassis is built on a 2 (aluminium) U profile (8×10 mm) with bought and 3D printed parts.

3D printed parts: Housing of the electric motor, housing of the battery, most of the steering system…

Bought parts are:
The suspension (length 60 mm), the wheel rims with the tires, the servo, the receiver, drive shaft and the differential is from Tamiya, the electric motor (8000 rpm), and of course screws (M2, M3) and the ball joints (M3).

Chassis Assembly VIDEO

This video is for v.2.1 (BMW M3 GTR), but the majority of the constituent elements are the same, so you could easily see how to assemble v.1.1 Ford MUSTANG’67

Most used tools


Scalpel for removing print support. Keys for screws. Every kind of Rasps to get the surface smooth and even.

Most Used Parts for Assembly

Super glue

Both Gel and Liquid ones. Use GEL when putting parts together. When it holds use LIQUID on the surface.

Super glue for assembly

Glue Gun

It’s adhesive sets very quickly. We used it only inside the body kit, because on the surface leaves nasty traces.
