Now here is a good reason for a speed rule! A huge, impenetrable tank that
on a good day could go 8mph. In 1/6 scale speed that would be damned slow.
Yet with ample space for 400W kollmorgens (or larger motors, I've found up
to 600W) this vehicle would be able to haul ass, have 40 paint balls, and
argue for 10 hits to kill it! Despite the fact that there were only two
made and only one with a real turret. This one is in Kubinka, Russia (the
one that had the real turret). http://www.tankmuseum.ru/ I would love to
see it in 1/6th, but DAMN!
