There is a file to print the tires in the car linked above.

Found out we have a 20v lithium leaf blower battery and charger. Should be easy enough to 3d print something that it slides into with spades in the right place.

I wish I could. Near home the only place has ancient karts and a small track limited to a pretty slow speed. Near my college there is not even a place like that (that I have found).
