    Nice write up! I think this design could be really effective if you sorted out the wheelie and traction issues. The drive certainly has some beans, and the machine kept working the whole time too.

    Did anything come of your post in URW, Sam?

    It would be a real shame for the forums to fall into rack and ruin. There is still so much useful information hosted here.

    Yeah I've just tried editing a post and I'm also having this problem.
    Also I can't upload pictures using "insert image" button - the screen just fades to white. It's been like this for a few days.
