the FORD MUSTANG 1967 FASTBACK
How to build a custom RC Mustang?
This is how we did it.
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.
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).
Screws and nuts:
M4x40 1 piece + M4 nut
M4x~25 2 piece
M2x12 ~50 pieces
M2x16 ~16 pieces
M2x20 ~16 pieces
M2x8 ~ 8 pieces
D2x38 4 pieces
M4 2 pieces 47mm long
4x10x4 4 pieces
5x11x5 8 pieces

The whole design is made for scale 1:10
This is our first model’s self-developed Chassis.
It’s not perfect!
