    I took over the principle of Simukit for the platform. Only with 3 motors. So all 3 motors can rotate freely, without damaging anything, should that happen once.

    I support the engines with 4 springs. 2 front for the engine in the middle and one for each engine behind

    Thank you !
    But I have to thank myself, because without the many contributions and help from the forum I would probably still play with steering wheel and Joystik at the desk.

    About 90% of the ideas come from the forum !!

    Thanks all :)
