Hi guys,

Problem update, the problem is gone... don't know if it's solved though.

I did some more testing and tried to find surtain relations between movements. When the problem first occurred there were no mechanical issues. Just pulling to the side. I was under the impression that therefor it must be electric.
So I took the top structure off, and disconnected all electronics not needed for driving. Tried again, no issues. Running fine. No pulling to the side, and normal power.

So I connected everything back, one by one. And surprisingly still no issues. Now everything is back on, and still functioning normal.
I drove in the woods for a few hours the past weekend without any issues.

So what was going on, I still don't know. I'll have to see if it comes back or not, trouble shooting things like these is difficult but i'm glad that its running fine again now.
Kind regards,
Roy

Hi Björn, thank you, it's a strange thing, I have no clue what caused this.
We'll have to see if it returns on some point, but with every good drive my confidence grows. It runs perfectly now.
Kind regards,
Roy
