Thanx Dave,  Still working on a few mods to the suspension, it just doesn't 
look right........Using 24v scooter motors, 280w, 2850rpm  roughly a 9:1 
gear reduction . motors from good old EBay (5 bucks each)wish I would have 
bought more when I had the chance. So far I'm using the sectional track as 
per Bill's plan although tedious to build seems to be very reliable, will 
see how it goes this summer, if need be I will "TYNG" it.
