Today the servos are arrived from Hong-Kong. The packaging is really good, all the four servos are arrived with the extra parts (scews, horns, etc.). As I wrote before, the power of servo is 25Kg@6V, and costs $15 each. Next time I disassemble one to check out the quality of the electronics, bearings, etc.

Well, the moment comes, whereof I'm waiting for a long time. I can hold the first parts of the car in my hand. The spring is too silky, we must replace it in the future, I've planned more springs for the car, with different power. The pre-tension of the spring is adjustable.
