Default my custom and homemade Kyosho Raider

(In Spanish, here: http://reparar-cochesrc.blogspot.com...de-piezas.html)

I had many spare parts from Kyosho Raider and I thought I could build a new buggy:




... I needed many essential parts (shocks, bearings, shafts, suspension and steering arms,..)






I started by checking and lubricating the transmission:






"homemade " Suspension arms in aluminium






The shafts were obtained from a DVD-CD rom:





the chassis diagram:



Building the chassis with a polyethylene-aluminum composite sheet:





Building the front shock absorbers with aluminum tubes:






Building the steering arms with two long screws:



I have put ball bearings and a 380 motor to test the transmission:



Now, I start to assemble the parts of the transmission and steering in the chassis:



Servo and steering are assembled and adjusted:




It starts to look like a car...








The first test with a 540 motor, receiver, ESC and battery:






Building a custom bumper. The curve is obtained with heat from a soldering iron




Bumpers and body supports are already in place:





Receiver and ESC has been mounted with Velcro:




The lexan body is obtained from a toy-grade car:







It's done !!!!








the bumper is behind the body






With its "brother", the original Kyosho Raider:

The time taken was about 10 or 12 hours over a month (cleaning, transmission maintenance, making homemade parts, ..).

I spent very little money because I already had many parts of an old kyosho Raider, wheels, 2.4Ghz radio kit, battery, motor and many recycled materials (aluminum plate and tubes, screws,.).

The used body of a toy cost me 5 Euros.

On ebay, there is sometimes a Kyosho Raider for parts or rebuilding for 15 euros.

On ebay or Aliexpress, you have stock 540 motors (€ 5), servos (€ 5), oil shock absorbers (€ 5-7), Speed controllers (€ 6), ..
