Reminds me of my first "Remote " control car , one chanel sonic control ,went forwards and backwards in a circle by means of a single front caster wheel that flopped round when in reverse , I was a little disappointed .
This should be more fun .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Yup
It's like a bicycle, axle in front of pivot.

That shock shaft is longer that some 1:1 scale cars
Consistency is the key I keep misplacing.
