      That's what we get for saying it couldn't be done :-)

      Your engineering solution seems about right. I knew an 8mm motor
      would fit, but I was trying to figure out a way to power both trucks
      AND include a flywheel. That's a nice piece of work. Now, I need to
      get back to the drive-train design :-)

      BTW, that would make a great article for Z-Track.

      If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then
      programming must be the process of putting them in.
