An RC car unlike anything you've owned before... 

Available for now in our Shop HERE
Grand Prix 3D is a 1/10th scale RC car kit modelled on the iconic late 1960s Grand Prix cars driven by the heroes of yester-year...including Sir Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, John Surtees, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Bruce McLaren, Ronnie Peterson...who's your favourite?
This fully functional RC kit design has been meticulously developed to represent true old-skool realism in an RC car...
...AND it is predominantly 3D printed!
This is a fusion of RC car action, scale plastic models and historic Grand Prix!

IMPORTANT!
The prototype model pictured, could have some minor cosmetic differences to final production. Please note that 3D printing is not a fast process, however we will be ramping up production capacity according to your demand!
So if you love everything about historic F1 and RC please Order this kit!

CAD Design

From idea to conceptualisation to dimensional accuracy each component has gone through many iterations to find a balance of functionality, looks, simplicity, strength, printability all whilst maintaining the history of Grand Prix in our modern fusion!

3D Printing

Majority of the kit components are 3D printed using the latest printer technology and utilising a range of highest quality modern filaments including;
  • Glass fibre reinforced Nylon
  • Carbon fibre reinforced Nylon
  • Polycarbonate (PC blend)
  • Flexible (TPU) polymers
  • PETG/PLA plastic

 

Other components

  • Full set of steel ball bearings (19x)

Not included:

  • ESC (electronic speed control) 
    • Note: ESC area is restricted to approximately: 46mm length x 28mm width x 24mm height)
    • Most ESCs would need to be used WITHOUT the fan installed to fit under the steering column - with the small sized motor they don't get too hot anyway!
    • Some suggested known compatible ESCs:
    • Please ask us about any other ESCs --> and we can evaluate if they will fit, for you!
  • Transmitter & Receiver
    • Note: Receiver space is restricted to approximately: 42mm long x 26mm wide x 22m height
If your ESC/Receiver are equal or larger than dimension noted above you may have a challenge to squeeze it in the available area!

    ...however if you are still unsure if your electronics will fit (and not intending to buy new components for this build) - contact us with the exact model and dimensions of your ESC and/or Rx and we will evaluate the installation feasibility for you, given the variables we can't guarantee, but can give pretty good recommendation either way!

     

    Battery must be:

    • Size: LIPO Shorty 7.4V 2S
    • Max dimensions: 96mm x47mm x 26mm
    • Smaller will fit, and would require you to add padding to suit

    Finishing details:

    • This part is up to you!
    • Please add your passion and modelling skills to finishing off this model with as much detail as you can! The more realistic and period accurate the better!
    • We recommend as using an old-school cool sticker set that will be available for purchase from MCI Racing.com.
    • Even just good old plain British Racing Green, Ferrari Red, McLaren Papaya or Honda White is more that acceptable to reflect historic minimalism!
