Could be that for a person to make something this small must have super duper vision , so this photo looks fine by them . Gee Randy claims 20/10 or something just short of x-ray .

Perhaps because the modeling is crappy and they're trying to hide it.   ???

Nice work, I must say.  But I'm holding out for a retrofit for a VW Micro Bus.  WM had a handful of them, including the pick-up truck version!

Ok, maybe not.  That would be an interesting piece though.

Eh.... why would anyone make an open inspection car? The hidious weight/motor sticks out as bad as those early donkey engines.

I think it is a great work of engineering but I would change the weight for a resistor. How fast would I burn out the little guy if I had to watch it not to apply more than 3V.

Well other than all the block heads in the car (big ugly weight) it is not bad. however the price is insane.
