    I finished my MSE droid today. I still want to do a little more detail work on it but over all I'm happy with the results. Shortly after I took it for an inaugural spin up and down the street. We estimated it was moving around 25mph. I'm glad I put the heavy duty springs on it 'cause it was listing on sharp turns and on two wheels at one point. It can do "Rockford Files" reverse turns really good since it's front wheel drive.

    Let me know what you think.

    That's really awesome.

    I joined your forum so I can construct one myself. I had no idea you were so far along.

    Very cool. Are those vacuformed shells? Where'd you get those?

    Looking againg at that thing, I've got the urge to play so badly right now. I could just see it rounding corners and skittering away from towering wookies.

    :D

    That looks excellent. The scene with Chewie and the terrified little droid was always one of my favorites. . . Chewie just looking so pleased with himself. :lol

    Yeah, I think IÂ’m going to put some stiffer shocks on it. I put heavier springs on it but still managed to roll it on a fast/sharp turn. These things are important when youÂ’re fleeing wookies. :lol One nice thing about the Star Wars universe is that itÂ’s ok if things get a little banged up. :thumbsup

    Suspension tuning a mouse droid....love it. :cool :thumbsup

    Ya I was going to mention the wheels as well...I'm guessing the original wheels as well were not that "low profile" ;)

    The details are amazing...

    :cheers,

    They were obviously wider too but that was the best fitting chasis I could find. Ooh. Maybe I'll put spinners on it and "Pimp My Mou$e" :lol

    They are vacuformed shells. I got them from a guy on the forum. I can't remember his user name. For privacy purposes pm me and I'll give you his contact info.

    Looks GREAT.. I have a long suspicion that the original chassis may have been more of a pan car design resembling the old "Bolink" chassis...fixed differential and wide....carpet cars in essence. I've held onto my Bolink for just such a project whenever I get time. The black rims and tires are foam and look similar to what the original was.

    LOL Fantastic Build. I love it. Are you going to get a little speaker put into it to say, "DOO-DEE DEE TOO"?
