thanks for the glue link JB comp i used titebond when i was out in the states fantastic glue forgot all about it ,so i will be getting some ordered up cheers.
No problem.

I've tried to break one of those glue joints one time (hard maple to hard maple) and I couldn't break it. I even took a hammer to it[>:] I think its still together this day. (it was 2 little blocks probably 1" x 1.5") So that's all we use in my Dad's shop.

I would like to see a video of this when you finish it.[8D]

Hi jb comp ,as soon as she is up and running i will post a vid for all to see,
Hi hrdcoreglf,
yep thats right the blizzard is a tracked skid steer,
i aim to use the power pack and disk brakes,power pack with a bigger engine will drive the centre wheels.
sprockets attached to the centre wheels will drive chains to the front and rear wheels,
there will only be the centre diff as the right side front and rear wheels will be seperated from the left side front and rear wheels.
a servo will turn all four front wheels till full lock then pull the disk brakes to engage the skid steer system, a lot harder than just skid steer but true to the supacat steering system and all possible from a 3 channel system.
when it finished and all works it should look really cool.

Hi all its been a long time so here is an update.
I have finished working out the drive system and have revised the winch, who says you cant make a supawinch full rc and loadsa torque.
The hull is coming along also the power pack its all taken a long time and lots of trial and error to get it working right.
I have some pics .
