Default Giant rc tank

Found this yesterday, I am sure this guy is well known on the tank threads, but thought it might be worth posting a link here, as it is definately unusual !

Ive seen tanks like this at RCX in pamona a couple of years back, very very nice models.
looks like it could not only pull a car, but turn a honda civic into a waffle.
imagen fitting a .50 cal barrel on one of these things and having a RC tank war of epic scale....
wow thats dreamy. and if you think about it, quite scale actually...

There are some european manufacturers who make those insanely large RC tanks, generally upwards of $15,000 though :/

Hardly since it's only 551 lbs and less than 1.5HP. It's cool though but I would've put in a little more HP.

most of these are elec. not gas.
and they are geared very low they can pull a real car.
look it up on youtube they are all over the place and range from $6000 to over $20,000

if you ask me i would build a R/C  1/4 monster truck.
just build a full size r/c go cart.
thats what i plan to do with 1/4 radio and servos...
that would be nutz an r/c go cart haha
