Custom motor

If you had seen my Arduino RC car video, I mentioned that I wanted to build a faster Arduino car, well, I finally found the 2mm drill bit that I needed and proceeded to drill a hole in the axle and attach the technic axle onto the shaft. If your interested in doing it yourself, you have to first drill a hole in the middle of the axle, maybe halfway through. Make sure it's as straight as possible. Next, you'd want to slot the axle onto the shaft. Then use some super glue to attach it permanently. Make sure not to spread the super glue onto the motor so that it can still spin. Now all  that's left is to attach a lego piece onto the motor frame for easy attachment to other Lego pieces.  I hope to incorporate this motor in some upcoming projects. In the meantime, stay tuned for a cardboard + Mindstorms + Arduino humanoid that I've been working on during the holidays.
