Oh come on Mitch,
its not that easy you always talk about.
Getting a strength into that body is a long way.You need an inner structure.That can be printed,of course.But this also cost about 300€.
And when you want the rest of the parts you have to pay another 500€ or even more Euro.
At the end its not that easy and cheap model car.
I bought the Cobra body and its a long way to get a "car" on his feet.
Please dont talk everytime how easy this is.Its not easy and its not a cheap way to get a complete 1/8 scale car.
He even dont know which parts are included in his projects.
And the printing quality is far beyond what is possible these days.When you want a thicker body is double or more on the price.And when you want a better material printed its the same.

In my view the body should be used as a master for making a resin copy of it.But its not a perfect starting point to make a car out of it.

Sorry,but thats my thoughts. Even when you ignore me on facebook,this have to be said to possible customers.
