Double Wishbone Little Bugger

It really 'bugged' me when I realized the suspension on the original Little Bugger didn't even work, so I put together this! It features a simplified version of double wishbone suspension, which is actually able to be driven by an axle, unlike the original suspension. The original suspension relies on the flexible connections between parts to articulate, which would not work with rigid metal parts, whereas this has a smooth, parallelogram-like articulation.

P. S. let me know if you would like to see more builds with realistic steering :)
