Great video. When you add a bit of slo mo it really improves the effect. I was thinking of doing up a Benedini file speeded up. So when you played the video back in slow mo the sound would be at the normal rate.

Thanks YHR. just the right type of dirt and powdery dryness to make it look like the real tank. and I realised how real tanks kick up so much dirt as seen at 1:17 and at 2:04. from the drive sprocket, dirt gets literally bounced around from last wheel to the first depending on the speed.

OK guys I have a problem, I have a HL leopard with a TK22 board and all was running great until I went to replace the turret motor with a faster one, well like some others have mentioned it started to smoke and then failed, well I went and put the original one back in and now it only turns right , the sound works when trying to rotate left but the motor wont turn, I hope I didnt fry the board, has anyone else experience this issue, I even tried another receiver, same result, also has anyone bought the 5.1 gears and motor set from rctanks.de, mine are super load and the speed is not fast at all, they are so loud i can hardly hear the sounds, thinking of buying their 3.1 gear set, but my board issue if it is fried for the turret can i send it in to anyone for repairs or am I screwed.

Unfortunately you fried the drivers for the small turret motor. To place a faster motor means drain more current from the drivers. Obviously you burnt the ones that allows to turn in one direction. You should replace the board or forward to Clark for repairing.

Ok, slowing down the playback is genius! It makes them look like real tanks!
