    remade the electronics tray with a fuse and a few grams lighter and the battery in a flexible holder that should keep it in place. Fitting flexi blocks on top and bottom of motors as well to keep them in place.

    Very neat looking, rather liking the carry case with it. When might we see it run?

    experimenting now with making some wheels. So far I've got some hubs and fashioned a mould and using black rubber shore 60 as tyre. Not too bad, but want to work more on the hub. Its ABS at present, then will be looking at some featherweight versions.asset.jpg
