Wow 5 months go by

I can't believe the last post was 5 months ago. Well we did some stuff on the vex. Added length and put 2 tank track kits into service on the vehicle. Had it running with 2 servos and it was running sluggish, and was already slow with the tank tracks in the April configuration. The extra track was making it run less good. There is a feature to run 2 extra motors to get 4 wheel drive on channel 7 and 8. You just need to install a jumper to activate it on the controller. Anyway I added the 2 extra motors to drive the tread and it works pretty good. A maybee next step will be to gear it to make the vehicle run faster.
