This is the OpenR/C Formula 1 car. It´s the third generation OpenR/C car and this time around focus is on ease! You can print everything in PLA! Of course you can print it in any material you like but this is the job for you!

A note on the servo saver. It´s designed to be used with PLA, the upper and lower BOM applies force similar to a spring at a servo saver. Of course the pressure is based upon the type of material used, infill etc.. Fine tuning can be done adding washer under or over the servo saver.

The "Main Turning Vane´s" needs to have it´s lower part trimmed using a "exacto knife". Then slide it in the chassie plate and push it on the "Lid" and it should snap into position-
