Just.  In fact I had to enlist the help of my CR-10S as well to get the job done.  The S5 was printing TPLA and the CR-10 just regular PLA.  These parts were actually strapped to a car and driven at 150mph! Everything was good and I think they are going with this design for the season so look out for it.


I also made a video about it here if you are interested.

That is so cool!

I haven’t looked at the video, I cant use audio at the moment. If it isn’t explained in there I would love to hear more about how you “attached” it to the car, how it held up and so forth.
