Ruckus testing


The vehicle undergoes extensive testing before its 1 way trip to the city. The heatshrunk pinion gear continued to hold up for 12 miles with the full gopro, 4Ah 7.4V battery, & headlights on. Used the 16 tooth pinion, going 9-10min/mile on flat ground. It won't go out until installing a properly fitting 14 tooth pinion.

Current use with the least efficient configuration has been 220-240mAh/mile. A 4.3 mile drive used 1Ah. A 7.75 mile drive used 1747mAh. The 7.75 mile drive had 1.4 miles at 17min/mile.

Suspension still seems to work with this payload. When rolling, the wheels can move in & out, finding an equilibrium. On the bench, various wheels move all the way out & stay there, making it tilt.
