Hi guys, I'm still scoping out tanks and deciding what would be fun to build/battle. I live in southeast Georgia, with enough land to have a decent battle on :) I had considered switching from boats to tanks a while back, but up until now, I didn't have a house large enough to accomodate it. The new house has a 20x20 heated and A/C'd shop, so the wife can't give me grief over a 3 foot long tank taking up space :) I've built scratchbuilt a few combat RC warships, so I'm okay with woodwork, CO2 plumbing, and electrical systems. I have a 6-ch radio for a tank, and a 2-ch for a future support vehicle.
My main pondering question tonite is: Would a couple of 18v cordless drill motors get a tank around well enough? Or do I need to spend a bunch more money than that?
