@teslarob - I think you hinted in an earlier post at having driven the RC cars...
is there anything from that experience you could share?
was there specific items/systems you were testing?
did you take the same car out daily or various cars?
how often were changes made (physically or software) to a car?
any interesting stories of people's reactions to seeing the car?

understand if there are multiple 'no comment' answers, but would be interesting to hear about the process from your perspective.
Hi Melinda, I actually didn't get much seat time in the RC vehicles. The ones our team had were in the shop all of the time. I will say there was a lot of software development going on during that time, and things were being updated very quickly. Other than that I can't really say much, sorry.

Hah! How about sending one of those 18" bright-wheeled RCs down to San Diego so I can swap wheels?
Haha, wish I could! :D

So I did a thing :) Swapped the "softer" struts and rear shocks on at the same time. Definitely rides a little better than stock, and looks great! Unplugged performance "Moderate" 1.5" drop.
