Well I am hooked now. I was planning on modifying my old RC truck and doing a electronic replacement, but now I am just gonna build one of these. My work has a Replicator 2 3D printer, and I have access to a mill, lathe, laser cutter, and waterjet among other things.
I also just got my anodizing set up completed so I might end up making some aluminum parts and anodizing them. Hit me up if anyone else needs parts anodized.
The first parts are going on the printer in the next few minutes.
