    I needed to do some changes to the the frame to accommodate the shorter leaf spring.

    Now I will tackle the complex front axle.

    you can officially say "it runs and drives". Now there's some debate about not saying it steers or stops. But that thing definitely runs and drives. Remarkable. Way to go!

    Still can't believe how much I've done and learned.

    That is a big bug.

    The last couple of days were spent solidifying the parts. After 1 minute in the snow I broke the output shaft and a steering buckle.

    I changed the orientation of the printing to provide toughness in the other direction. It paid off. after replacing critical parts with the new orientation, I was able to test drive it in the snow for 30 minutes without any breaks. I believe it will be tough enough for a 3D printed car.

    Here's a small video

    Well, you can tell it's an MB. It goes through snow up to the frame and bounces hard enough to put things in your throat that shouldn't go that high.

    Great Job!
