RC car run 4

Despite all fears of shoemageddon, the 1st RC car run with the new shoes happened with no issues. It was a bit easier, thanks to 2 easy days. Didn't feel any hunger, thanks to a large salad with nothing else. The shoes just felt heavy. Fully intact soles put them at 11.6oz. After wearing down, they were 10oz.

At 7.4V, GPS reported the fastest segment was 8m8s per mile for 1.8 miles. The same segment uphill was 8m31s per mile. After GPS reported 10.25 miles, the battery started fading fast. Automatic steering died completely. It now has 109 miles on it. Used gyro * 4 for the automated steering, to no avail.

Still expect the tires to go before the motor. It's going to suck to spend $44 on another piece of junk instead of an ideal solution.
