I think the chassis are 3D printed; I'm fairly sure the bodies are resin - whether the master was 'printed', I think only Pascal can tell us that. Yes they are quite expensive but the quality is excellent and they perform well; I'll certainly buy Pascal's next offering.
The bushings I used had thick flanges, I went over and picked up some single flange bushings and problem solved. I appreciated the good fit between the bushings and the chassis. Thanks for the service after the sale.

My understanding is that these are like the Ghostrax Brabham BT46B released a while back, i.e. Made from male and female hard moulds, not latex. I am not an expert but believe that is why the quality achieved appears far better than anything else i've seen in resin.
So presumably the cost is due to up front production costs.
Bonjour, Dans un premier temps, la carrosserie et tous les accessoires sont créés et imprimés en 3D, puis retravailler à la main pour en faire des masters. Ensuite avec ces pièces maîtresses, je crée des moules en silicone et la carrosserie et tous les accessoires sont moulés en résine.
Le châssis est créé en 3d et imprimé en 3d (polyamide).
Hello, Initially, the body and all the accessories are created and printed in 3D, then rework by hand to make masters. Then with these masters, I create silicone molds and body and all accessories are molded in resin.
The frame is created in 3d and 3d printed (polyamide).

I just got my 246P on the track for some testing before the final touches and clearcoat. I was impressed on how well it ran with the printed chassis. Lap times were close to the race prepared P48 that competed in the Tasman series a few years ago and it weighed only 5 grams more than a car with a light fiberglass body and wire chassis. Good job Pascal you made a very nice race car.
I ran my 246P last night in practice at our club race, I was impressed with the way it handled right out of the box. It needs a bit more break in time on the track before I will race it against the boys.
Bonjour à tous. Effectivement je suis obligé d'arrêter mon activité à cause d'un cancer du poumon qui a été diagnostiqué fin 2015. Les premiers soins ont été très efficaces mais malheureusement les symptomes sont réaparus fin juillet et il faut maintenant que je recommence tout le traitement qui est très fatiguant, il m'est donc impossible de travailler actuellement et suis obligé de faire une cessation d'activité pour raison administrative. J'espère bien cependant pouvoir reprendre une activité en 2017... Merci à ceux qui mon soutenu. Cordialement.
Hello everyone. Actually I have to stop my activity because of a lung cancer that was diagnosed late 2015. The first treatment was very effective but unfortunately the symptoms returned in late July and it is now I start all the treatment that is very tiring, so to me it is impossible to work now and am forced to a cessation of activity for administrative reasons. However well I hope to return to work in 2017... Thank you to those who supported my. Cordially.
