New Zen Wheels Android App Works Great.

One of the two samsung galaxy note II phones I just installed it on gave me problems at first, but they were solved.
I had to reinstall, and mess with the wifi/bluetooth on off buttons a few times to get that phone to work.... suspecting interferance.

The app works great, just hope there are enough new android sales to help pay the programers to develop it further, and get all the other features that are in the iOS version!

I like being able to connect to the car INSIDE the app, unlike the iOS version, so hopefully more of this app will be superior to the iOS version as they continue to develop it.

More Body Ideas for Zen Wheels Hackers:

Mini Stompers!




The ones I have here in the photo, are the non powered versions from 1980's Happy Meals. Their wheel base is about 2mm or 3mm to long, but it is easier to lengthen the WB then shorten it!

If you are looking for off road tires, the best ones in my opinion are the tires from air hogs thunder trucks or windstorm trucks, weray good grip, the bodies from thous trucks are allsow weary good.
