    Hey Dave,

    Loving the content so far on your channel!!!!

    I've been watching your channel from the first sim you made and i was going to try and make the 1st one, But this new design has made me change my mind!! how do you think it will compare?

    Can't wait for you to post the dimensions!

    I'm just waiting for my new fixed back seat to arrive, and picking the last of the materials later this week to get started,

    i have the 25:1 worm drives from motion dynamics I'm hoping they will be ok for a more compact config, my control system is built and ready to go, Eagerly waiting for episode #4!

    Thanks for the inspiration Dave!

    Hey Dave, thanks for all your awesome content, its been super helpful. I am following your progress and making my rig along with you. I have basiclly bought all the same stuff you have for your first rig, the 3 crab pot motors, the same hall effect pots, the same motor controllers.
    I am starting the wiring now. I bought a 600 W power supply i am going to attempt to use on all 3 motors. How are you planning on powering this new rig? Using the truck motor again?
    Thanks Dave!

    Looks good Dave. I watched your latest video during my lunch break. I made my rig by closely following your videos for ideas and inspiration so thanks for your many contributions! I got mine working this week and I am enjoying it so much!
