    The small video finished uploading, it works, but you can also see some of the problems that I need to work out.

    Still working out some problems but I'm almost done. In the meantime, this about sums up how I feel about this build right now...

    *Sigh*

    I've.....had......ENOUGH!!! The summer heat and this car is really getting on my nerves.

    So here's the new swing arms/mounts I made, much better than before, keep the wheels forward without any impact causing them to turn inwards/outwards.

    Of course when it was finished I gave it a couple drops, powered the motor to check and then did a quick test on my track.
    Well that ended badly. I hadn't allowed enough time for the glue to cure in the cups and this stupid track being what it is, the car hit the wall edge and both wheels flew off. And things were going so well....... Anyway, I'm gluing the cups back on and in a couple days I'll do a drop test vid.

    After that I'm done, I'll probably send it to Rangga/Team Flazh and I never want to see it again!!!! In the future, I'll make a proper plan rather than winging it.....

    I did drop test for 3 cars but I'll only post it once. There's the Arctic Savleo, Phantom Blade and this PoS above.
