Excellent input. We were wondering about the reliability of the rubber
treads, but the only way to find out was to convert it and try. I'm
sure everyone would love to hear from people who have already solved
some of the problems and we can exchange ideas on how best to proceed.
Please pass our name along to them and hopefully they'll join the
mailing list and we can discuss some designs.
Along those lines, has anyone retrofitted one of the plastic models with
Dave Spring's tracks and drive cogs? That would reduce the overall
weight (and cost) of the vehicle, while providing a reliable drive
system. And with the addition of one of our 40cal cannons (hopefully),
we'll be battle-ready in no time.
