The camera angle for the video is cool, it made it look fun.. until i saw him sitting upright. Boo.
Is the 2wheel drive really an advantage?
He wasn't exactly "all terrain"ing Would there be a differential?

We borrow ideas and pervert them to our own ends ?

Course it is bragging rights !

Freewheel differential I suspect .....

Someone will be along with more brains than I to surmise how it works and enlighten us all .......

I presume he using 3 - 6, 45 deg cogwheel.

Set up like this: 3 cog formation -----{ _ }------

If the left arm lifts up, the left cog turns backwards, the middle horizontal wheel turns clockwise, makes the right cog push the arm down.

I'm I thinking right?

But they are probably using 4-6 cog wheels to even out the torque.

bit like a hand drill with an extra big gear wheel ?

it certainly looks neat (y)
