Well-thought-out design. Very decent workmanship. It assembles easily. From videos on Youtube it looks like it's very maneuverable, so I'm guessing it is the gear ratios of the engines are well chosen. Might consider adding to the kit Bidirectional drivers for brush motors. I just have these. I will have fun.

Everything as described.

The metal frame is durable and stable, but the way the wheels are attached to the frame is so poorly designed that when driving, the wheels can twist off by themselves, besides, the motors could be faster and smaller

Solidly made. Cool and convenient track connection system.

I do not fully understand the method of mounting the "loose" wheel (the one without a motor), but a bit of creativity and somehow it managed. Apart from that, everything fits nicely - so far the "dry" tests with 2x18650 (2S) were great.

5 out of 5 !!! Amazing to say! It's worth a lot more. I've had experience with other platforms like this, but this one is great !!! Thank you!

I generally recommend it. The wheels without a drive are a slight drawback. I don't know whether to treat them as sliding or they should rotate. The screw holding these wheels is actually shorter than in the movies. And the assembly of tracks presented on most of them does not match the assembly of these "sliding" wheels. With the reverse installation of the caterpillars (the edge to the vehicle) there is approx.
