Thanks, I'm near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, I never intended to get hooked on tanks, my initial plan was to build a R/C lawnmower, so I collected some parts (Futaba 9ch radio, 8 wheel chair and scooter motors-had to buy all or none) then in doing reseach on how to build a tracked robot, I stumbled across this site, I plan on doing the roller style chain if I can locate some #2060 in Nisku or Edmonton, I would love to build the old Mk V, ever since I seen Indiana Jones thats been my favorite tank, but I see someones beaten me to it. I'm not sure on how well the Wheel chair-Scooter motors would lend themselves to a tank application, the biggest motors are rated for 84 inch pounds of torque, and there 24Volt.

Hi Trev,
Welcome. Where abouts are you located? Any plans for a tank or vehicle of
some kind?
