Won't be making its debut this Sunday but for sure the next battle day, provided that I can make it go forward........ Everything else works though. Can I put a 360 degree IR shield for this bad boy ?

That looks amazing..!!

I like the look of the tracks on the inside like that. 

Gearboxes? Weight? :O

Can you imagine the explosion when somebody puts a .50 cal tracer into that fuel tank! LOL! In other words a willis jeep could probably disable this silly thing!

does look cool Mike. Hope you get it moving forward. It going to be funnier than hell if you have to battle with the turret backwards all day! Razz Razz Razz

Thanks guys......... The tracks are supposed to be covered on the inside, but because the way the hulls are glue together I need it open so I can actually put it on and off. Gears and sprockets I stole from leftover parts of my Matorro KT which I believe are Mato brass 3:1. Weight is not as bad since it has plastic tracks for now so it is all the resin.

I have been making some fixes to see if it will go forward properly, but the sprockets keep slipping on going forward as I don't think there is enough weight on the tracks, kinda of like a rear wheels drive car spinning on the ice. Going backwards is like front wheel drive so no problem there.

I might have to take Dean's advice and try putting metal tracks on and see if that helps. It does have 360 rotation on the turret since I put in two motors, so I will just put it in the middle of the field and stay there like a fortress with a gun.

The gas tank can be release from the inside in the real thing so they can jettison it when they get to the battle field, I am just trying to figure out how to do the straps since the gas tank is a solid piece of resin and weights a ton.

That's really cool Mike.

I know it sounds simple and you've probably had to do this before but consider small washers on the inside of your sprockets against the drive shaft, it sounds like you might have a very small allignment issue. Big Tiger type tracks usually don't want to slip so that could be it.

Hmmmm...... Interesting. I am sure I have an alignment issue since I bolted the gears on the resin kit. Will have to look into that. Thanks !
