In accordance with my goal of bringing one random vehicle to every Swapfest, I rolled LBS out of MITERS (this time on a handcart to prevent 50-feet-away-death syndrome) once again after rebuilding the motor controllers for the nth time over. It proceeded to run the entire day without issue. Due to its more tame nature compared to things like LOLrioKart or melon-scooter, I let a few friends zip around the seller booths and parking garage on it (some of which is seen in the compilation above).
But with the day reaching temperatures of 95 degrees or so, and after climbing a dirt mound for a while – with much stalling and low speed running – and then afterwards gunning it at full speed up the parking garage ramps, the Beast-it-trollers finally gave out.
