Howdy,

Over the weekend I hacked a couple of old toys into something else.

Both scored on eBay for silly money. Most expensive parts were the paints!

Can't you upgrade the motors on the HackTrak so it goes about ten times faster?!

I 'upgraded' my BigTrak with rubberised Caterpillar tracks, it was immense for using in the garden.
