- "You've been running off a lot without explanation. What are you up to?"
- "Oh, just stuff."
*beep-a beep* "The Shadowers are attacking! Let's go, team!"

Still pondering about the paint job, since I‘m pretty certain not to go with box-art.
First step is to take apart the preassembled gearbox to replace the plastic bushings with proper ballbearings. Whoever thought a prebuilt gearbox was a good idea, it is not! This is a kit after all, even a beginner friendly one.
Let the screwing around commence!
the new driveshaft required 8(!) o-rings to keep it centered. maybe this was so it could be used with the TA02 (shorter wheelbase)?
I should 3D print spacers and only use 1 o-ring per side
the chassis is now built.
1. aluminum motor mount
2. aluminum drive shaft
3. aluminum front arm mount
4. TA-01 gears
5. TA-01 red gearbox cases
6. 21 turn open endbell brushed motor
7. 19 tooth hardened aluminum pinion
8. 3D printed shock clips
9. normal tires (from HSP 4WD buggy) w/ 3D printed wheels
6502 history, Chuck Peddle
Oh, *wow*. I love this bit about its origin at Motorola:
"Motorola's Semiconductor Products Division management was overwhelmed with problems and showed no interest in Peddle's low-cost microprocessor proposal. Eventually Peddle was given an official letter telling him to stop working on the system. Peddle responded to the order by informing Motorola that the letter represented an official declaration of "project abandonment", and as such, the intellectual property he had developed to that point was now his."
sooooooo one of the shocks' adjustment collars was missing from the kit so I can't finish building it
hopefully the seller will send a replacement
love too drop an essential part on the floor and not be able to find it
there are two kinds of people who use computer
one kind of people who use computer looks at computer and sees big pile of poop and thinks "i do not like big pile of poop"
the other kind of people who use computer looks at computer and sees a big pile of poop and thinks "this pile of poop is not shiny enough"
I also need to figure out how I'm going to put googly eyes on it
oh no! Crunchy flipped!
