Hi,

yes with support :)

cheers

Im confused. How can you print the axle with the right angle that it has? Do you guys use support material to build it?

Use punching bag balloons as a replacement for all balloon powered vehicles for more power.

 Hi ! thanks :)
well about the "launch", I used to pinch the base of the balloon , put the car in place and release it. No need for blocking the opening, even if it was my first thought when I conceive it.
If you want and if you have solidworks I can post the file so you can modify it ?
Glad  you made one , It look great in green !
Cheers
