    Thanks, it is indeed very tight in there. What I'll do is extend the wiring into the back part of the rails and then cover that up with HDPE, which will also make the basis for the weapon section as well.

    I think it is 15-17mph with those wheels on, The Honey Badger 2 was capable of 14mph with the 110mm wheels on.

    So I've finished one wheel adaptor to make the Gimson hubs go onto these wheels. Need a bit of tidying up but seems to hold on quite well.

    With any luck, I'll have the other one finished by EXR Guildford though I'll need to make a blanking plate for the rear and front.

    I've already booked a hotel to Grantham so I'll be coming. Provided The Honey Badger 3.0 isn't beaten up too badly at Guilford (and I am already umming and ahhing about not going), it will be there along with Shu! for the Beetleweight event there as well. As for Kaizen, provided I can focus on getting the armour fitted and wheels fitted, that might make an appearance as well. Had a bit of a setback over the weekend with the power drill so... we'll see

    The test wheels from Kaizen have now been attached and the The Honey Badger 3 is now mobile. I say mobile, one of the wheels did explode in style.



    I know what this is, the shaft on the motor is the new motor and it simply hasn't been worn in yet. I'll add a rough surface to it and that should hold it for a while. Definitely need some rubber tread on the wheels but I don't have time to get and fit some. The screws holding the motors in also came loose but I think that is a case of a few spring washers and away I go.

    Need some blanking plates over the front and rear to protect the electronics and then we are off to Guildford for the day.

    So a rear strengthening plate has been added in for the rails, front and rear blanking plates are added in and a crude hinge has been made for the front deflector plate. All a bit of a rush but fairly confident at this point it will go to EXR Guildford (and hopefully not get trashed this time around).

    I may very well end up having to finish this in the pits though. It runs but it has no weapons at the present and no rubber on the wheels. Impressive drifting will ensue but it is barely controllable over 40% or so.

    So EXR Guildford was a bit of a flat one - It went into the arena and then met Neon. Suffice to say, new wheels and hubs were ordered. :P Took some damage to the wheels and one of the rails but nothing substantial.

    I've finally found time since to make proper motor mounts. I say "proper", they are a bit rushed but they hold the motor up and with some spring washers holding the motor to the motor plate, it shouldn't disintegrate again. I also ordered the same wheels as I use on Kaizen as they are big enough to allow The Honey Badger 3.0 to run upside down though this is untested.

    Bring on RL Grantham
