    Don't forget to check over sized ones.

    With luck the other one is standard for something else.

    I've already found the servos I want to use/test, just a matter of having the spare cash to buy it (and the related power supply) for testing.

    Teknic Clearpath motors.

    They've already been used on other 3D printers built by a couple of people with the same board I'm planning to use

    Fully integrated is the way.

    They are a pair anyway, the drive and motor.

    It's a 3D printed Hypercar so it goes here.

    And it's beautiful.

    I'm not 100% convinced that it will turn into an ongoing thing by the financiers (i.e. the rich guy who's obviously using it as a platform to gain interest and sell his technology) but...

    ...it's beautiful.

    Very interesting. I remember seeing some similarly exterior shaped car years back but has space frame chassis... graphite tubes and 3D printed nodes connecting them. I wonder if the same company has further developed that thing?

    Anyway, will keep an eye on it..., let's see if they can really translate this from paper... or computer to the actual road and track performance that they're aiming for. Designing and building their own power unit is kinda amazing too... makes me wonder if they're being way too ambitious?

    Nevertheless, the prototype looks good. I would certainly buy it if I have extra $2 million in cash that I don't know what to do with.
