Leg0steen posted this YouTube video of his LEGO Technic Concept Car.  It has caster-wheel steering that swivel to get into tight parking spots.    "A creation I wanted to make a very long time. But designing good axles was a bit of a problem. Now I'm finished. The axles still aren't very strong, but it's possible to drive with this car."  He may have been inspired by Nathanael Kuipers' Lego Technic JEEP HURRICANE (which also has 4-wheel steering).

I saw the video on youtube as well.  I agree that no radius turning would be great for city parking  :wink: .

how does he control that? I've made a vehicle with a similar wheels, and it's a pain to control.
