With such a small number of things left to do we took some time after dinner tonight to wrap up Malicious Mule and get it ready for competition. We needed to trim some weight and bind the receiver to the radio, then see how it behaved. Hit Back after viewing an image.
SGGS: Houston - we have lift off!
After a quick turn on Milly we put the 'bot back on the scale and the problem quarter of an ounce had disappeared, and we were fighting fit at 15.94 ounces.
SGGS: Although Malicious Mule, like Steel Stiletto lacks a weapon, it makes up for it with Formula One-class driving and indomitable intention to win!
After bolting together the drivetrain it was time to put the newest antweight through it's paces on the test
SGGS: In it's initial test run I was pleased to see that the Malicious Mule drove more reliably, smoothly, and with a more reliable drive-train than my Jaguar ever did! For the remainder of this week, the Malicious Mule (along with it's sister Steel Stiletto, will go the the paint shop for a Graffiti-fabulous paint job and of course, custom shoe logo. We must look our best, after all, for the competition.
