I used grade 8 bolts on the T34. Works great.
I used Hex Head Shoulder Bolts on the Cromwell (also known as lawnmower
axle bolts). Works great in this suspended application. Look to the
bottom of this page,
I am helping a certain someone in building a certain un-named tank. It
is a solid axle design using bolts screwed into 5/16" thick 6066
aluminum bar stock that is bolted to a 1/2" ply hull. So far it seems
to be a very rugged chassis which should hold together well. This new
vehicle will be ready in time for the next MAG battle on Oct. 28-29.
