    Very cool to see that short running video! It does looks like it is a blast to drive. It will be nice seeing all those details being added.

    The toe in is kind of extreme looking for sure! It probably makes the car easier to drive though, but it is cool to have the option of the uprights suggested by Caprinut, you can try both!

    Yup, I love that sorta thing- like a proper track car, you can do a few laps, change the toe/camber, then try again.

    A few more details- lenses were printed in clear PLA, i was pretty surprised how nicely they came out:

    All detailed up- I painted the clear ones clear to help clarity...?!?!?

    They added some grilley bits. Slats for the bonnet are printed, for the mouth and next to the lights I used some ebay mesh:

    All put together:

    It looks sweet with the paint, the lights and all the details! For the kind of neon look of the lights I guess the LEDs are blue-ish so they add up to the yellow-ish lenses and you get green :) You could always switch to warm white LEDs if you want the other look, but it is definitely also a very cool look just like it is now.
