skid steer is the same as on tank the wheels one one side are lock with a brake and it steers in that direction
ie lock the left side and it goes left and the same for the right side

Hi rc maniac, this is the unusual forum so aint this unusual?? LOL,it wont fly but it will swim......

Hi Brel, yes indeed it will be skid steer, the mk2 has all four front wheels turning and then the skid steer engages just like on the original, the wheels are hpi savage as are most parts, the drive train will be an os 15 LDX, a nitrol blizzard 2 speed gearbox driving a central diff with diskbrakes which will drive the centre wheels, the rear and front wheels wil be chain driven taken from the centre diff, i am trying to stick as close to the original full size as possible.
