All i have to do to steer it is pump the pump and push the lever and it steers in both directions.  My own design, i might make some money outa this.

Most of the frame was built from instructiones for something else.  But the suspension, steering and just about everything else i built myself.  The spring are off of some kind of monster truck toy thing, they work great.  The hydro stuff was off of a lego tractor and so was the tires.  I did have it so the front tires spun together like a spool but it kept breaking, so i took it off.  It does have a spool in the back, i also took the back driveline off because it also kept breaking.

It has a v4 in it lol.  The cop is the only guy i have.  but the engine doesn't work yet, no drivelines, so i guess no HP.  I push it over the opsticales, can go as slow or as fast as i want it to go.

Ya push it.  I blew up the motor. Well, actually, the motor quit working, and i truly had a motor.  It could just be the batteries but, what ever, not enough power anyway.
