I built it and made some modifications using other people's parts that they had invented. It has working manual steering, front and trailer independent suspension, an engine, exhaust and a working steering wheel that works with the steering. Please reply to me if you would like to see it. I'm working on a gearbox. All due credit to people who's parts I used.
