Correct. But we can't increase the radius. So the only way to add more inertia is to add more material to the radius that's already there. The only way to do that is to increase the thickness of the disc (make it longer).

I think the Lionel trucks that come with the GP9 and F3 are too cartoonish and toy-like so I made new ones for myself :grin: . They are drop ins for Lok-n-Roll's mechs.

Those look great!

Are they from Shapeways or did you buy yourself a 3D printer?

Those do look nice. Also curious about the source.

iMaterialize. Worlds better than Shapeways (and more expensive).

I updated the description (probably as you were ordering) to note that it's a single piece. Unlike Shapeways, iMaterialize doesn't allow multiple objects in a single file.
