    I'm something of a stickler for scale and since I took my 
measurements from a later T-35 model my tank is close to 6' long so 
that's a lot of roller chain on the ground. I'm using 24v DeWalt hammer 
drill motors to power the tank, they run around 1680 watts and stall at 
over twice that. The downside of course is I'll need some serious speed 
controllers and quite a battery pack, luckily I have the space to fit 
them. Simply put downside of a big tank is cash, the parts are out there 
to move just about anything you build, it's all a matter of cost.
