Question: When will the Grand Prix car kits be ready for shipping?
Answer: Already available since February 2021. Type-L, Type-H and all spares are always available with printing/packaging lead times depending on stock levels. Customisations welcome to be discussed also..
Question: How strong are the 3D printing plastic parts?
Answer: We have used various materials based on their impact and temperature resistance depending on the component of the car and it's performance requirements.
The components requiring the highest strength such as the suspension, chassis, bulkheads and gearbox are printed with the latest exotic Carbon fibre and Glass fibre infused Nylon. Also a Polycarbonate (PC) blend has been used for it's high strength and fantastic physical characteristics. For a given type of plastic material; injection moulding will always be stronger, albeit not significantly so and to counter this we have purposely selected those high quality materials which make it stronger than some other plastic RC cars. Any part will break eventually with a big enough crash or bad impact angle, but not too worry we have all parts available as spares to get you back on the grand prix track!
Question: Will there be spare parts available?
Answer: Yes - all parts will be made available as spares, even if a part you require is not in the Parts collection in the shop right now, don't worry - please just ask and we will make it so!
Question: Will there be Option parts and any variations or even different cars in future?
Answer: We are providing the body set in 4 optional colour variations (Red, Blue, Yellow, Black - in addition to the kit white parts) as well as a range of driver variants/colours. The Type-L radiator and water tank /pipes detail kit is now also available. The Type-H body kit is also available which can convert your Type-L kit or be purchased in conjunction with a Naked chassis kit.
