RC 1/10 KITT & scanner

Postby ElaSteK » Wed May 11, 2016 12:52 pm

Hey guys, I am starting a 1/10 KITT RC build, gonna use a Tamiya TT02 chassis, got my hands on an Aoshima body but couldnt find the Aoshima wheels & scanner. Has anyone got a scanner they are willing to part with?? Haha, long shot but you never know !
Also got an old Nikko 1984 Trans Am, see what i can do with that.

I am thinking of getting a 3D print done for the nose/bumper, any help would be appreciated.

Anyway, I will post photos of the WIP as I go, and please share your own RC projects!

I suppose if you are feeling adventurous into the electronics side of programming, you could install something like a Raspberri Pi to run effects like red LED's that could fade out and play WAV files like the 'swoosh' sound and maybe even show quotes. Could even go so far as a tiny LCD monitor on the dash.

here are some photos of the build and -almost- completed KITT. I am quite happy with the rims, which i think look better than the Aoshima ones. These are standard Tamiya wheels that came with the kit, the 1/10 R/C Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI Jägermeister (TT-02 Chassis).

here's the beast. still waiting for the scanner, an Apex LED Sidewinder. not sure how good it looks, but i might use one of my 1/24 Aoshima scanners and ask an electronic shop to swap the leds for larger ones. thoughts?

Hey everybody,

Finally got my hands on a set of original Aoshima wheels & scanner and have a gorgeous looking KITT on a Tamiya TT01 drift chassis with a few upgrades.
I also got a new body which has not been drilled, I used velcro instead to attach to the chassis. Planning to upgrade the foglights to six leds instead of 4 and add a grill effect.

Will post some better photos in the next few days.

Cheers!
