Take a look at the Subaru Travis will be sending into the air on New Year's Eve. It's an impressive example of both ground and airborne vehicular performance.
And in the same way we've prepped the car to perform at it's absolute best, the Long Beach Fire Department is also preparing for anything to go wrong, including the possibility that Travis ends up in the water.
This New Year's Eve, action sports icon Travis Pastrana will star in Red Bull: New Year. No Limits., live on ESPN. Travis will attempt to shatter the world record for distance jumping in a car at the Pine Street Pier in Long Beach's Rainbow Harbor.

"The OpenR/C Truggy" started in 2012 as a open source project to showcase 3dprinting capabilities on "RepRap" 3Dprinters but totally got out of hand. Several hundered hours spent on development so far and breaking of more parts than i can count but it´s still worth it!
A community (on Google +) also grew out of this and has become a great source for further development and support aswell as a platform for other projects.
Printed materials used in the car in the video includes ABS, Nylon, TPE (NinjaFlex), Polycarbonate, tritan and PCTPE.
Most parts are 3Dprinted including tires, rims, diffs, gears, inner driveshafts and many, many more.
Parts NOT printed: screws, bearings, Stainless steel pins, CVD's, body and electronics.
Thanks to everyone supporting me in this project, without you none of this would have been possible.
