I changed dc motors to 70 rpm 12 volt gear motors. These motors are much more quiet and use less energy--hopefully will have a longer lifespan in this high use application. The maximum run time between charges is now 35 minutes (up from 20 minutes).

This required changes to the body, wheels and front bumper (to accomodate the new motors). The "Sept" files reflect those new parts.
