24/3/01- All together

Well... look at this the little fellow is up and running, finally got the drive chains sorted out, We took it for a test in the church hall, and we've got loads more torque thanks to the reduction gearing, unfortunately we've also got quite a lot of wheel spin, and we were starting to make nasty black marks all over the floor, so had to stop.

I took KC to work to try and have a good thrash but, the brakes on the car seized on the way so I spent my lunch hour stripping them down instead of testing. Next week I'll take it in, give it a good thrash, assuming the weather is fine, and try and fit the gyro, as the steering remains a little sensitive

I've started welding up a pivot for the flipper, and Gary at work soldered up an adapter to the regulator, all we need now is some more flexible pipework, as the nylon stuff has a good bore size but won't bend around the tight turns. finishing touches needed include some ramming spikes on the rear, the removable link, and a couple of lexan panels to cover the side of the battery.

Time to concentrate on the big boy now!
