    He obviously buys far too much from Amazon.

    This is amazing. Love it.

    But where did he get the correct dimensions and things?

    Nintendo Labo got nothing on this.

    Imagine if Nintendo offered a whole Labo kit to build this, or at least the cockpit.

    Reminds me of this guy from a few years back who would make F1 cars out of paper and then got a job at RBR. Maybe this guy will get a similar fate down the line.

    It’s a bit of a shame he scaled it down to a point he couldn’t fit in it. If it was full sized he could seal the cardboard than create the parts from fibreglass/carbon. Put it on a basic chassis with a decent engine and have a great little track machine! :D
