Started in 2003 and not terminated until 2010, still nowhere near complete by my standards, this was the longest drag-on RC project I've ever attempted. Its original intent was to be the "Ultimate Mini-T" and the earliest mods were world's firsts and insane extremes. As time passed, though, realities of physics threw wrenches into the plan and wreaked havoc upon my goals. Frustration and demotivation struck many times, bringing the whole project to a standstill for months, and sometimes even years. In the end, I decided it was time to let this one go and just walk away. Thus, here it is, the final form of a difficult, long, project.
