Ball handling is this truck's first priority. Grab the ball and run for the
goal. The one big problem with being a good ball handler is it's the
equivalent of painting a target on your truck. The Bug got its name from the
two feelers that stick out from the front bumper. Red with a black stripe
starting from the front of the hood and coming to a V in the bed, this
paintjob has held up well. The Bug is still looking for a sponsor, plenty of
room for stickers!
Bugs modification is made from a screen door support ($6 at Builder Square),
four nuts and bolts, and two scrap pieces of metal. The first mod lasted for
the first season and a several games of the second season.
The flattened area of the support rod finally gave out. The second mod will
have a little more reinforcement.
An add-on modification is in the works, a flame thrower is in alpha testing.
The igniter is still a problem and the butane runs out much to fast.
Mounting a small seat in the back for a mouse failed horribly, mice are just
as curious as cats!
I love the stop shot, run "balls out" for the goal and stop short, sending
the ball in by itself.
I love when the trucks flip, I don't even mind it it's mine.
