    That looks fantastic, are the parts cast or molded? Nice counter tops.

    3D printed from PLA. They are super strong pieces, and now all glued together the body seems very durable.


    Thanks on the counter tops! Ha


    I also ordered Yota 2 axles. And 1.9 Landies, and hub caps, and some other stuff. I'm gonna let my Paypal cool down for a minute. HAha

    That's awesome, but sad face it's PLA. Keep it out of the sun!

    Yeah, we watched him melt his really cool truck last summer at AxialFest. It's a thing. Unfortunately.

    Someone told me Manitou engineered these to be more durable so they wouldnít melt...as easily? No idea what that entails, but it sounds great...right?

    Mine is collecting dust, so Iíll live vicariously through this one.

    There is some internal structure in his printed bodies. So maybe that helps? When I get mine running Iíll play it on the safe side still.

    Sadly looking like USPS takes the whole week off for the 4th. Waiting for chassis to arrive so it can be a productive weekend.


    I am bringing some sanding tools home from the shop, get going on my 200 hours of body work.

    Update, USPS appears to have lost the package. I have a postal inspector friend and he says it was lost at the originating post office.

    Awesome.
