Why not just make a separate class?
Not gonna race without metal involved.....
There are guys over at Gaslands who are 3D printing various parts for the cars. I've seen at least two versions of Bone Shakers that have had custom chassis printed to fit larger wheels, and someone did an extended truck frame for a hauler. However, these were still using the original (if modified) diecast bodies.
I can see printing various parts and pieces for the cars, but do not see an actual full 3D-printed vehicle race happening anytime soon. For example, I can walk down to the local store, pick up a few mass-produced HW's and MBX cars, then modify them using basic tools and be ready to race in a couple of hours. For a 3D-printed car, this also assumes I actually HAVE a 3D printer (I don't) and all the materials I need to build a car from the ground up. I would have to rely on someone else to build a car for me to race, and then it's not "my" car, it's one that I purchased race-ready.
Just my pair of Lincolns .....
Universal chassis mold?
I like metal chassis & prefer factory assembly. Human scale screws kill the suspension of disbelief.
however, MB & HW have yet to do a squarebody Suburban. Not one! One of the longest running production vehicles.
