Well, vacation has come to an end, though I managed to cross some things off the to-do list: clean the garage, make good progress learning CAD, and added pages to the book manuscript. Also received the suspension design software from Wm. C. Mitchell, along with an amazing suspension book by Rowley, so between these two I’m ready to rock and roll.

Oh yeah, I wore out the little electric RC helicopter, surprisingly, not by crashing it; the tiny plastic gears finally stripped out. So of course I fixed that by buying a bigger helicopter 😉

Looks like, as with Kimini, I’m going to have to buy a drivetrain if I want to know how big it is because no one’s taking the time to help me measure certain drivetrain dimensions. A little disappointing, but as expected. Short of that, I realized that a coworker has one of these cars so I guess I’ll be measuring her… engine.
