After many requests, I’ve decided to experiment more with leaf springs on these micro RC builds and model car conversions. Leaf springs are simple and have been used on many full scale vehicles. Recreating these suspensions in 1/25 scale however has proved to be a bit of a challenge. While 3D printing these parts offer some benefits, there are some shortcomings with 3D printing as well. Follow along as I do my best to make a well functioning rear suspension for this AMT 1/25 scale 1978 Pontiac Trans Am. After a little more testing and experimenting, I’ll be posting some STL files onto Patreon for you all to 3D print yourself and use for your own projects. Stay tuned for more information.
