Remote Control Rock Crawler (posted by Simon - for the boys)

Ok it is a shared toy Sarah has had a couple of goes at driving it but she still needs to learn a little coordination, pratice makes perfect. I have never been happy with the flex (the way the wheels go up and down) so I started to modify the body by cutting the wheel arches out to make more room for the wheels to come up then he changed the spring rate fom the hardest (blue) to the second softest (white). Then I discovered that all the trimming of the body was for nothing so over a couple of nights there was some careful planing and measuring but I have now trimmed the body to allow maximun articulation. The first photo is what the body looks like as stock the others are as it looks like now and a very impressive wheel up at 22cm off the ground (any higher it falls over).

The Show

Last weekend we went to our local show for the afternoon. Sarah went on a couple of rides, we bought a showbag and patted some baby farm animals.
