This behemoth is no longer a static monument to an engineering mistake. It now runs well, a bit slower than I would like, but it runs. The gearing is slower and much more rugged. The tracks stay lined up when it turns and nothing slips. It looks nearly identical to this picture too. Now on to the next task…mounting the NERF Stampede.
I really wish there were much larger motors and axles. The torque that is needed is pretty high, even for XL PF motors.
