Making Tires with 3D Printed Molds

The last test failed, like the previous ones. Discussing with the resin manufacturer, I got some hints of what could work, and I will retry soon with those new enhancements made to the models.

Beside this, I was in a vintage event last week-end (Montluçonnaise 2023) with 16 of my cars and ran almost all of them, and that included both the Samurai and the Ninja with printed tires on the offroad track... The printed tires performed well in both case. I'm very happy with the traction and they way the cars behave with them...

And there was a short movie made at the end of the Samurai run (the last few minutes of the run unfortunately)...

The Samurai is light and there was plenty of grip with the tires... And that was somewhat similar for the Ninja : plenty of grip, with a layout close to the Optima. I was really surprised how well this one was during the run. And with a Sport Tuned motor, there was largely enough to open wide, with a very predictable behavior, like the Turbo Optima or the Javelin (but lighter than those)...

Tires conclusion : they work well on the track. I can improve the printability by changing a few things in the internal design, and once this will be done, they will be ready for publication...
