R/C Drift Car Arduino 3D Printing
Photo credit: Dimitar Tilev
Auto enthusiast Dimitar Tilev decided to take remote-controlled drift cars to the next level by building one that’s powered by an Arduino microprocessor and four servo motors connected to an accelerometer. Combine those with several 3D-printed parts and you have an active suspension that leans just like a real car while drifting. Read more to see it in-action and for additional information.



If you’re wondering what kind of car this is, the shell is of a 1963 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 Wagon. The active suspension works by raising and lowering each of the wheels to simulate the movements and weight of its real-life counterpart, thanks to the accelerometer. This means that the front-end dips just like you’d expect when you come to a hard stop.
