V-mies thanks for taking the time to translate this article. The pictures were interesting but being able to read what was going on makes it a lot more enjoyable How did this modification work on the track?

Default That's my car!

Very interesting - Somebody have found my car!

Thanks V-mies for translation! I think, that everyone understand now what was the the purpose of this silly project. It was just a joke. However there is also some experimental testing. Couple of comments:

- There is no torque steering, or it is insignificant
- Metal gears are noisy and maybe little bit ineffective. I think that plastic/nylon gears would be better choice. But where I could wound these?
- Gear pitch is too big
- I have only one pinion gear, so I have to find proper overall ratio changing the motor
- I should have more time to test this car. Current setup is far from the best.

Your mastery of the English language it better than most people who speak it natively. Thank you for your hard work, the translation made this whole thing much more interesting.

I don't know enough about car design to know if this is practical at all, but it sure is neat to see people experiment with new ideas.
