Small update on the Euc.

I didn’t have much time lately for a variety of reasons, including a bad cold that kept on coming back.
But I managed to get the drive shafts done. I installed 2 temporary gear motors and that gave me the opportunity to test the truck and worked out some problems in the drive axles.

Given that the rear axles are not driven off a common drive, how are you going to match the axle speeds?

This is a temporary setup. It will have one motor with a 4-speed gearbox.

I did some work on the Euc. I installed a Mabuchi 555 12V DC Motor, which seems to have sufficient power for this truck. And I built a temporary reduction box, so that I can drive it around and get a sense of the speeds. later I will build the final gearbox.

I tested the Euc in the dirt and took some videos:

I would have given up the "left one" to be as talented as you. That is so fantastic. Keep up the pictures and content for us. CAW
