This RC Car Grew On a Tree [VIDEO]

Well, if you want to get picky, it didn’t grow ON a tree, it WAS a tree. A maple tree, to be precise. Mechawood’s appropriately named “Woody” is made almost entirely from lasercut hardwood maple, including the wheels and gears. Other than springs, tires, electronics, and hardware, it’s wood through and through. Even the 2-stick transmitter is made of wood (or at least its case is). Here’s what Mechawood says about the car:

Woody is an RC car that is made almost entirely from wood! He’s got full front and rear independent suspension, a rear differential to keep traction when cornering at high speeds, and removable bumpers to protect his parts in case of a crash.  The best part is that woody is made right here in the USA and consists of high quality components hand chosen for optimal performance and style.
