    I'd imagine because most of the braking is regenerative brake pads must last forever in electric cars

    I knew it! hahahah

    I hope they do not squeal for you, I've yet to come across a set which are silent.

    Yes, you have to source the running gear (motor, gearbox, etc.) yourself. The kit is designed to work with a specific setup so it can still be like a Lego kit.

    This is the future. Good luck on getting it all together, going to be a few good head scratches in it.
    Very interesting project that I'm def going to follow.
