What a great design, and simple print. Very easy to print and snapped together in a couple of clicks. The suspension design is genius and works really well. Went with the two tone tyres and swapped out the filament to white on the last few layers. Wheels clipped in well with the rims and work great.

I swapped the tyres round in Cura so the left and right treads were pointing forward. To do this, I first split the tyres stl in Cura, deleted two of them, then duplicated the other two and mirrored the two new ones in the “Y” direction. Then you have two new tyres which are mirrors of the other two… simples, and no CAD software required!!

I would recommend from the suspension to the body cab, the structure either needs thickening or I would suggest printing the body with three perimeters or more infill – I cracked mine while playing with the suspension, right at the junction of the suspension base to the upright to the body. Little bit of glue and it’s fine though!
