To each their own. The design isn't flawless and never meant for it to be. It is truly one of a kind and was happy to share my work if someone else was incline. Not only was this how to reuse the electronics and motors but a break down of how it worked and some issues i ran into. That is all I do not see tons of people running out buying old pedal cars to just re-purpose them they are getting tougher to find. this one was much better than some of the originals for this project as all the fittings are ball bearings.
I hate to say it but you are coming across as old and grumpy. Hey if building and modifying stuff isn't your thing then more power to you. I enjoy it and I can take pride knowing its truly one of a kind. I hope you have a great day!
You are correct on the cap nuts and that is something I can and will prob change these!
Heck yeah now you have me thinking electric go kart
I am not one for ordinary. Kids have been using pedal cars from the 50's so I do not find it unsafe that I wouldn't trust a child in it. The remotes are pretty new we all grew up without them so not to focused on that part.

I just took a bristle brush (something like you clean a shower or tile with) and soap and water. but be careful as the red will bleed and chip off sorta easy or mine did. I then just took clear coat over the whole thing and brightened it back up. Good luck and be sure to share some photos once finished.
This turned out great! Thank you for sharing with me. For this exact reason is why I love sharing my builds and photos. I love the plate fits it perfectly!

DIY Sliding Door Bookshelf
Build a Simple Box for My EDC With No CNC
That is a great idea and could work flawless. if I remove my center shelf i have plenty of room to stand and get to the rear of the units. but your idea would be best if the room for the shelf wasn't there.
My good friend David helped me with this step. In the settings you have to orientate the screen where to look for player one. after that in the settings menu of each game you have to change the screen style to cocktail vs upright.only about 100 games will work in this set up. im sure more but at the moment that is also enough to pass the time.
Table Top Cocktail MulticadeView Instructable »
Thank you Jusstanothernood,I only notice the vibration on larger loads of jeans or other heavier wet items. normal cloths and everyday washes I have no issue. the back wall its attached to is the back side of my kitchen so its also not been an issue as if it may have been a bedroom or something i was sitting in trying to relax ect. I would have no issue building this again.
Thank you Wrsexton!
Thank you for your input. and gives people more to think about when planning my set up as stated below.*The units have a good amount of room behind them. and about 6+ inch in front to move forward. if needed yes could find a stool or box to support the front if needed more room. *The top is supported by the cleat and center shelf it does not touch the units.and not screwed or bolted down just held in place by weight.
I do agree they are heavy. The top shelf is just laid on its cleat just holding on by its own weight.the center shelf is not bolted in place and now just sandwiched between the top and bottom and does not budge. there is a decent amount of room behind plus around 6 inches plus in front to slide out. I was able to easily get behind them and switch out the units once both were on the platform from the old to new systems. But that did give me another cool idea you could build a small platform on some sort of heavy duty drawer sliders and easy slide out problem solved.

Thank you, hope it inspires you or others to give it a try.
I personally would not buy the bases. They cost a ton in comparison of what you can build. They also lack useful space.As with any system when its loaded with jeans or any heavy material the dryer does shake. I've never had it move or even budge but it will shake the kitchen wall a little. Nothing noticeable or I have ever had a concern about. I would do it all over again. The added space and hiding the dirty clothes makes it all worth it.
