It says on the website that the buggy needs to be able to turn around, how can we do that if we can't have a remote control? :?: :?: :|

I was thinking about the "other" wheeled vehicle event. Please disregard my post below!

For anyone who needs help on turning, here is a picture showing one example of an adjustable steering system.

Notice the vertical bolt near the front. This allows the front axle to be turned, which in turn steers the vehicle.

Another way to turn is to make a frame that you can shift and that would get you the turn.
