I don't think any tracks near me do 4WD mini races but I might be able to remove the front drive hardware and enter it as a RWD. 🤔

Have I -ed the body that's been sitting on a shelf for almost a year? Nope! Did I get another M chassis anyway? Yep!

I also got a 'setup board' which is really a glass cutting board that says "home is where you park it" and features a bear eating some food and some birb poppin' its head out of a cooler. Lots cheaper than an official setup board.

#TIC80 can be compiled to run on bare metal for the Raspbery Pi (all of them I believe, including the Pi400). This is running directly on the hardware, not on top of linux. Just like the old computers it is modeled after TIC-80 is the base environment. How cool is that!? Really neat if you put it on the Pi 400. Boot straight to TIC-80 and code some games or play some games.

#OpenSCAD debugging tip. I wrote a small helper function which creates 3 cones among each axis, in different colors. Anytime I'm lost (mostly because of rotations) I just call this function, and use it as a reference for everything what's below.

Gradually learning . I'm glad I did my NIH library since I had to read the lib's source code a few times to understand what the various calls were doing. 😅

I have some basic hello world projects here: gitlab.com/DavidDiPaola/stm32f and here: gitlab.com/DavidDiPaola/stm32f
