Been too long without an update!

Well that's because I've been testing and testing and testing:

Wait. Are you married? becase I can see a Loraina Bobbet type thing if a wife were to see you running that on marbel floors... It looked good though. Keep up the great work. and maybe sleep on your stoumach for a while. :grin:

The beauty of foam tires is that they're totally undestructive. :-o

More and better updates soon, I promise... here's one of the motor mounts just beginning the machining process.

I could be wrong, but I think color0 is either a senior or just out of high school, and that's probably his parents' house.

Only a high school senior, which unfortunately puts a limit on the crazy things I can do. :lol:

Don't be hating my pink slippers. :lol:

I don't think anyone is hating the slippers :???: in fact in some places that would make you really cool. I hear that in public schools now they have special...uh..."advisors" to help the kids figgure out just that kind of issue. :-)

And if/when you go to college remember that your Professors are great at the subjects they teach (well most of them) but in any other subject of discussion they are usualy full of crap. You'll see what I mean soon.

LOL... yeah, the condition is called teen rebellion, explains a lot of crazy colors I've seen worn lately. :lol:

I took the RM car to the tennis court recently, drove over 2"x1" ruts (2" wide, 1" deep!) in the concrete, heard the chassis smack the ground each time, but nothing broke or loosened up. That's good from a durability standpoint. :)

Even with the batteries pushed full forward, the car has massive rear grip. I was still using medium-compound GRP foams front and rear so it should've spun like a top, but all I got was a moderate degree of understeer and a little slide if you brake too hard and wrench the wheel. I'm more than happy with the results.

Cleaning is about the same time-wise as your average MR02. For those concerned about electronics: I didn't have any glitching issues despite all the dust on that board, but you may want to seal/heatshrink/case electronics if you drive in more rigorous environments. Indoor cars will have no issues.

I'm still working on the MM production car, obviously, but the G10 chassis parts are already done:

Yes, but I don't get a graduation gift so that's a reasonable tradeoff. :-o
