The truggy, with the appearance of a truck and equipped with large truck off-road tires, is very popular in the RC community because it has both the stability of a truck and the agility of a buggy. Thingiverse user barspin (Daniel Noree) shared a nice project with everyone: a 3D printable 1:10 Radio controlled truggy car.
To make it easy for you Noree has kept the design as simple as possible. Except the 3D printable parts, you need to get driveshafts, shocks, ball joints, screws, nuts, bearing and electronics for the assembly, but these can easily be sourced from many places. As a reference, Noree added a description and link to where you can find the correct size bearings in the instructions.

Noree printed his all plastic parts on a Makerbot Replicator 3D printer with a layer height of either 0.2mm or 0.25mm.
Want your own 3D printed truggy concept RC car? Find .stl file of all parts and follow Noree's instructions here on Thingiverse, or check the PDF files for Exploded views if you need assistance with the assembly.
