    Nice build :]

    However there are no differentials in it...

    There are slip gears yes, but a differential is a gear system that will disperse incoming drive to two wheels (in standard use), but while allowing them to turn different amounts (which is needed while taking a turn because the wheel on the outside will have to travel a greater distance). However there is the con of having the possibility of one wheel taking full drive while being on ice for example, and the other wheel staying stationary, thus the vehicle doesn't move. For this reason the limited slip differential was made.

    I encourage you to check it out its details though and try making one! All the best!

    Please post.it would be great if u did :)

    Does it slip easily. Try putting it on the ground picking the back up and have the front touching the ground and twirl the rear wheels.Does the front peel out?

    So... do the gray gears have pins or the blue? OR NEITHER???? In which case it would be relying mostly on friction? If either have pins I am jealous and wish I had gears like that. In fact I wish I had more gears in general.

    One of the cooler cars you've mad, awesome job dude, I really like the drive system

    it took a while to get built but i like it because its got a limited slip diff. on it so if the front wheels lock up the rear wheels will still work and vice versa
