    Had a hoverboard and I enjoyed riding on it.

    I am the Corvette Expert in South Florida. I have appropriately updated this thread: https://www.superchargerforums.com/t...too-hard.9159/And my car is ready for the dyno this weekend and my very first trip to the track soon after..Playing with plastics is fun on the weekends and when I am tired. But this car I built has a low compression 6.2L LSX376-B8 engine producing 476HP and 475TQ(on 87 octane), RPM level 6 transmission with 2500rpm stall converter, solid driveshaft couplers, 3.15:1 gear ratio ram air intake and full exhaust with longtube headers, high flow cats, an X pipe, and straight through magnaflow mufflers. The printers are my toys. This is my machine.

    And I'm gonna break it again, too. That's the rule of being a Corvette mechanic. Build it as strong as you can. And then beat on it as hard as you can. If it comes apart then you didnt build it strong enough and if it doesn't come apart then you are not beating on it hard enough.

    I know this is a 3d printing forum and I have many printers and shared many things on that topic here, But I have to share what I have done with my Corvette, here. I finally took it to the track. Just the straight line, the 1320. The 1/4 mile. Here are a few pictures from my first trip to the track..

    Oh ya. The transmission in the car is a RPM level 6 transmission. It is an automatic 4 speed electronic shift with a 2500rpm stall 10" converter in it. The transmission is a big part of how that car is doing the 1/4 mile in under 13 seconds. I have an android head unit in my car and I tether it to my phone for internet and use youtube as MTV on demand in my car. It is cool. And while staged up at the track to race what else would I be watching? Metallica Fuel..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvF9...&start_radio=1
