    Thanks for the review, really nice to see to that you realize where the challenges where and managed to point them out.
    I do like to point one thing out still though,
    You mentioned the offset of the wheels as a negative, however this is perfectly normal for a Tatra drivetrain, the only way to overcome this is to use different size gears for the left and the right axle which in return create different torque property's, so instead Tatra uses a slight offset on the axles so they can use the same gears/gearing. So to translate this into Lego results in at least half a stud offset which is what you see in this model. (not a full stud)

    Once finished and you try to drive it around the drive train will somewhat lock up. I do believe that replacing the 3 8tooth gears (going to the fake engine) with 2 16tooth gears will fix it. there are not enough of them in the model however so you'll have to provide them yourself.

    Thanks for the review, It is true that the steering in this model is hard to reach,it was on of those annoying design choices I had to make. I do like the solution you've come up feel free to share, just post them as a reply here so that others are able to take your change and implement it themselves.

    The instructions are correct, you'll need to use the #4 angled connector in dark azure. Due to the angle shown in the build step it seems like a different part (if you zoom in, in the instructions, you can see the "4" written on the piece itself)
