Ran the blue "Bonneville" R/C car a bunch and got it up to 70MPH, but we need a bigger area to go any faster. The Electronic Speed Control/Motor I bought "on a budget" doesn't have very good brakes, so that will have to be swapped out. The motor is robust, but it was a "budget" ESC, and it's not very adjustable. I have a high-end one, but I'll have to fabricate some cables to connect it to the motor.
The hip isn't bothering me quite as much. I've been taking 600mg of Naproxen twice a day, and between that and the Tramadol, I can manage pretty well. Still waiting on the referral to the Orthopedics people to go through, and for them to call me.
Be back in a couple. The Little Guy's 3rd Birthday Party is tomorrow, and I'm sure a splendid time will be had by all.
