Interesting, one of the 3D printers said 100% infill can actually be brittle, no room for the part to deform under stress. May try 80%...
Sorry that’s 1/2” rubber risers.
I had a great time building this with my kids and it’s amazing to ride! Scary fast! I wish it had regen brakes... I wanted to point out a couple things I noticed. I also had to file the truck a tiny bit to clear the wheel. I put on 1/2” Uber risers. I made the battery and elec boxes out of bent sheet metal. I put in a toggle switch using another set of xt90 connectors. I also noticed the speed controller or motor will error (not start) unless trigger is pulled all the way to stop, duh. I have broken 2 PETG motor mounts so far, printed w 100% infill (or so the printer claimed). Both broke at the thin collar around the truck as pictured. I’m going to try nylon or maybe ASA next. Unless you have any other suggestions?

This looks like a fantastic project. I priced everything out and it comes to ~$300 each even cutting some corners (I have a pair of trucks and extra wheels, free decks, no 3D battery or ESC box, etc.). The batt, motor, and ESC are big parts of the cost. Have you used any alternatives that might save $? Just checking!
Great idea w/ the tripod, Melarky. One important caution is no matter how loose the stump gets, please do not attach it with a strap to a trailer ball as in the photo. Even with a 2WD truck you could put way more lateral force on the ball shaft than it's rated for. If broken, the ball turns into a potentially lethal 2" projectile! Google this for some interesting photos and x-rays... Instead, attach the strap or rope to a secure point on the vehicle frame and live to fight another shrub!
