    I must admit, I thought f a transformer when seeing this. Converts to action at a moments notice.
    Would it be a deceptcion or autobot?

    j'ai enfin commandé mes cartes j'ai reçu ce matin la monster moto
    j'attent l'autre.
    la partie mécanique est entièrement finie il ne rete plus que les finitions esthétiques !
    Pour la partie éléctrique , j'ai modifié pour le moment, une alim ATX qui me délivre 12V 14 A

    Hi all
    I am back!
    I had to leave my project for a time but working there from time to time.
    I missed it all essential way: cards and a good power supply
    I finally ordered my cards I received this morning the monster motor
    I attent another.
    the mechanical part is completely finished it more rete that aesthetic finishes!
    For the electric part, I modified the moment an ATX power supply that delivers 12V 14A me

    super merci !
    bon voilà une fois cablé j'ai voulu par curiosité brancher l'usb
    là il me demande le driver
    j'ai suivis la procedure mais je n'ai rien en ports com
    rien non plus sur autres peripheriques juste un peripherique inconnu
    super thank you!
    What a good time I wanted wired curiosity plug the usb
    where he asks the driver
    I followed the procedure but I have nothing in com ports
    nothing about other peripheral, just an unknown peripheral
