is that 4wd? Have you tested it on carpet to make sure you don't have problems with breakers popping when you turn on carpet

It turns fine, we have a different kind of tread on the front wheels so they slip on the carpet and allow us to turn faster, this tread grips really well on the ramp though!! Its 4WD!!

sweet, great design, looks like its gonna be a tough one to compete against in competition, it looks like you can get under the bar correct?

and by any chance have you timed how long it takes you to get to the top of the ramp?

Yes we are 13.5in high! We can go under the bar and stack bins. Our current auto program can get us up the hill in 4 seconds. If we start at the bottom it takes us about 1-2 seconds to get to the top!!
I hope to post more movies soon!
