Looks like a blast. Too bad the web sight for the guys that made it won't work.
That popped up about a year ago I think. Had me dreaming of tracks for a while. There use to be two videos that were a lot longer.
Man that thing looks like it has a pretty hairy engine in it. I wouldn't like the load transfer on take off though. It would be like driving a boat, only a tree could be in the way......
I wonder how you could fix that though?
Uhm, drive slower? Obviously he's going balls to the wall.
But that is no fun!
I mean something like an anti-roll bar, but longitudenally (sp?). I don't know.
that Really blew me away the first 20 times i saw it...
Especially 3 yrs ago....
427 cid if memory serves me right...
...sorry dudes... didnt realize it was a repost...i tried to search for it before hand...
yeah it was a supercharged 427 smallblock chevy ls1, I think I know what your talking about, maybe a gyro that would control weight transfer between the front and rear, but I am thinking the only thing that would control that would be some kind of suspension that can load up, or just lay off the throttle from a dead stop.
Wasn't really home made. They were trying to sell them as a business.
I would not call it a tank. There is not turret just a tracked vehicle
Try not to take it personally...
