Connections[edit | edit source]

1.This part is tricky, so follow the steps carefully.

  • Lets start with the left controller. (facing the back)
  • Connect the front bearings to the controller on the left. (the vertical bearings)
  • Do Not connect the wheel or steering bearings to the controllers! (the horizontal bearings)

5. Your vehicle should look like this when taken off the lift. If it does not, right click on the bearings with your connection tool. This will rotate the bearing angles.

Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Each Controller requires 20 components to upgrade for usage in this build.
  • Can be used for semi-rough terrain.
  • Because of the symmetry of the build, the gas engine could be replaced with an electric engine. Electric engines have more torque, so you could hook a trailer to the buggy.
