New wheel bearings

The metal bearings arrived after 7 days, got installed, & the steering was suddenly rock solid. Months of dicking with PID constants were suddenly proven meaningless. The internet wasn't kidding about plastic bearings being no good. Steering wobble is the mane symptom of worn bearings. The metal bearings should last forever, but the plastic axles also wore down a bit. There's always going to be some wobble.

Went up to 10mph with a shirt payload & didn't get any wobbling. This should get much better video. The new bearings & new differential are much noisier than before. The next step would be a metal differential, so the noise is a fact of durability.
