spidey Smart

Had my spidey smart out Saturday during the T or T in downtown. Notice the range is getting smaller and had problems shifting into forward... Think I need the software upgrade... oh wait!! maybe the battery upgrade! or at least a new transmitter battery....

Anybody tried rubber bands on the wheels for better traction?? Just a thought.

Traction is the least of my complaints...Both MiniNeon I and MiniNeon II had/have the turning circle (in scale) of the Titanic...

Project Black has a more accurate turning circle.

I'm going the other way. Spray the slick tile floor with water and the car does cheerios like the smart in the hayabusa video. A car this small can't do doughnuts.

I didn't think you were old enough to know about Spirograph.



I don't believe it

The things I can do with my Spirograph!

I remember way to many jingles from my youth.

Well spidey was doing a lot of spinning of the tires as I was running around on the street, on a linoleum floor, it gets worse. Just thought a rubber band on the tires might make for better grip. Looking for a small wide band. It turns pretty good for the price. I did a lot of backing up to escape the kids chasing it. We had a good time!!
