allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
This soviet truck ZIL-157 has 1/16 scale and based on the WPL transmission. The model converted from the GTA San Andreas in Zmodeler and SketchUp. All parts spliced for printing on my Delta printer with a small bed (19 cm diameter) and to reduce support material. They must be glued together with a superglue or ABS juice (if you will print from ABS).
I've replaced the plastic leafs to stainless steel which cutted from a spiral spring. You can use 3d printed leafs for run or as sample to cut new from metal.
Also there are need any RC receiver, ESC, 9g servo, LEDs for lights, M2, M3 screws, nuts,
You can buy a N30 motors separately because a plastic case is useless and motors must be mount in the 3d printed gearbox case. (ZIL has a longer wheelbase then original WPL truck).
Gears is not very strong (look to photos), I've used replacement from a N20 gearbox 6V 200 rpm. Also you can use that N20 motors in this truck, but it has less power and need to add some spacers to gearbox case.
