- Step 1: Acquire an RC Crawler/Trail Truck.
- Step 2: Customize your truck(s) using any type of 3D printed accessories that you prefer (these can be acquired from MyMiniFactory or elsewhere). Don’t know where to start? Check the inspirations section below!
- Step 3: Take as many pictures of your creation as you can and really show off its potential! It’s better to put your crawler in some kind of atmosphere or story if you can. Use any material you may have to improve the look of your pictures as you see fit!
- Step 4: Upload your pictures via any “Submit your Entry” button on this competition page. Each RC entered will be an additional submission to win. Each person will only be eligible to win 1 prize. Submissions close July 7th, 2021(Updated submission deadline - 7th of September, 23:59pm UTC, 2021.)
- Submissions must be a customized RC trail truck.
- All submissions must contain one or more parts 3D printed. We recommend taking close-up shots of the 3D printed part(s).
- Add a list of the 3D printed parts and their origins used for your build in the description. For example: chassis, fender, rims or tires, which body and what other accessories. Don’t forget to list your 3D printed parts and their origin to credit the original designer!
- Winners will be determined by several judging criterias. The competition will be judged by Chris, owner of the Hemistorm Youtube channel, and announced shortly after the end of the competition.
- Originality. It's important to show how much effort that you put into your customisation work. Use your creativity and DIY skills to customise your RC cars with 3D printed parts. A nice paint job and some unique touches will certainly add to your chance of catching attention!
- Build coherence. Trucks that have a nice balance between their looks and performance, and really invite you to go scale off-roading have a higher chance of being more eye-catching.
- Picture Quality. Almost as important as the printed model, is making sure your pictures are clear enough to see the beautiful work you have done! If you’re not great at taking pictures, you can ask a friend for help. No one should have their beautiful work held back by lower-quality pictures!

“RC Crawling is an area of the RC hobby which is increasing in popularity by the day, but it’s by no means a new interest area for hobbyists. The original scale off-road vehicles were produced by the likes of Tamiya in the 1980s, often with metal chassis, solid axles and realistic styling. They were typically shaft driven and some even sported sequential gearboxes allowing you to have high and low gears options” British Radio Car AssociationSubmit Your Entry
