First (almost) fully 3d printed RC vehicle made by Michael Curry

Michael Curry developed and built fully 3D printed RC vehicle. The car weighs about 70 pounds and required $700 of PLA filament to print, it was printed over the time frame of five months. The majority of the vehicle is 3d printed PLA plastic with some obvious exceptions like: the electric motor, some metal pieces, and the Delrin ball bearings. I wonder if the batteries are also 3d printed?
Also: could it be enlarged and driven by a person?
