If I thought building the moving battery tray was tedious I had no idea how cantankerous custom retracts would be

It took me the better part of 4 days to figure out how to get a set of gear that fits around the big hole in the middle needed for the battery to slide through, weighs as little as possible, can take the loads of long spindly gear legs, and has some bump absorption. Attached pics should explain it....

Now that the 2 major complicated pieces are done, I can start to think about framing this up....or maybe I should build the new super lightweight Shuttle first so I know what I'm dealing with....
