Link doesn't seem to be working..

I'm interested for a kick ass material for crash tests (base of bindings, top of trucks and hubs

I remember the bad old days of Bennet skateboard truck base plates: they broke so often I gave up on them, and would be wary of using plastic (even injection-molded glass-reinforced nylon like the Bennets) for any truck component. My application is a little less demanding, but I've had to abandon using printed parts for testing.. just not strong enough for safety :(

I would also think of Taulman Alloy 910 as a very suitable material. Still didn't try it myself, but looking at most reviews and youtube demos, it seems perfect to me for this type of stress.

Going to weight in since we print functional parts on a weekly basis at work.

ABS = Durable, impact resistant

PETG = Flexible, Durable

Nylon = Strong, Flexible, Durable

PET = Strong, Flexible, Durable

PCP = Strong, Flexible, Durable, Heat Resistant

For your application you will want PETG if you need some flexibility, ABS if you do not. Nylon is a good choice too. Word of advice, PETG does not play well with supports (PITA to remove) unlike ABS.
