Yes, but you can also carry around the 911's fuel tank.

No idea on ether question. I expected to find some form of disaster but nothing noted. It looks and feels mechanically sound. No big smoke was released. Some chip crapped out and threw a code perhaps?

Keeping the gear set as a demonstration tool and a bit of silky smooth Iron Age art. Planetary and differential demo in one melon sized device. The rotor has an insanely strong magnetic field. I can stick the pictured slugging hammer to the rotor and use it as a carry handle. You have to work hard to pull it off. Plan to use the rotor stupid science demonstrations to be determined later. Will go in a plastic bag in a wood box in the mean time. Geek is spoken freely here.

Reminds me a bit of replacing a NIC or modem when the IRQ was wrong or the driver needed an update. If the issues was on the circuit board that might 'total' the unit.

My two thoughts exactly! I mean the Tycan, I would think is still fairly new enough that one wouldn't expect this type of an issue so soon, if at all!
