The gearbox repairs went ok, and even with desperate amounts of slack in the system, Metahammer ran ok.. well sort of..
The new batteries mad ea big difference, giving us plenty of zip, and powering along enough to push scorpion jnr and pillow torque.. though they faded after a few minutes and that was that.. I need to add another pack to bump up the Ah rating, I could work out what the motors are using but can't be bothered at the minute.
AN investment in another battery, and 4 bearing blocks is called for..
not sure when the next outing will be.
