    Well if you want to post the pics in the post instead of URL use the image and put the url of the pic itself.
    In one of the pics is that a 2.5ton rockwell axle on the ground?
    Is that going on another project?

    The tail-lights are particularly cool. Fweemin' K5's, what next?

    Atlas *and Klune-V, jesus, what's your crawl ratio, like 400:1 or something? I'm jealous!

    Thanks Guys, I am very proud of it. justin @ Rocktek Engineering has put in a crap load of time and late nights (with me helping however I can) fabricating the Body, Supspension, Cage, and Steering. we have lost a lot of sleep on this thing. But I thikthe end result is gonna be worth every second.

    BTW, I think we calculated the final gear ratio at 170:1 /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
