Knuckles Works!!

We took Knuckles and Spot out to Cliff's Insane Terrain over in Marseilles, IL and had a riot of a time. Both cars ran great! Knuckles is vastly superior to Spot in control and maneuverability, but Spot still has a bit of thunder left in him. Well, he did until Faye here rolled him over onto his side.

Knuckles had great speed for a while, but after an hour or two of heavy driving, he lost his power. We think it’s something in the gearbox. Perhaps a shaft broke, but we’ll have to get back to the shop and take it all apart. John’s worried he may have to redesign and manufacture the whole thing in fewer than two weeks. We shall see.
