Yes That is what I'm thinking. But I think It will work well in big OP. Not the normal weekly game. I'm thinking of a madbull rocket.

You've never heard of a quad?...



As for the "give it treads" should check out those new Polaris winter quads. Four seperate track systems. Bascially each wheel was replaced by a trianbular shaped track rigging. Pretty cool looking, how effective in speed I'm not sure, but I'll be it gets great traction and climbing power.

One syllable is better than three. We use quad as a matter of efficiency.

Lol, you funny americans. 4-Wheelers? That could apply to any vehicle with 4 wheels? THis is a quad bike:



Now that one is 110cc, they go up to about 500cc. The better ones u get the more power the give. They are intended for speed but you could adjust the gear ratios to give more torque and slower speeds which is what a tank has. As a tank u don't really want it going faster than 25mph, some of those can go up to 60pmh though. They also have a strong roll-cage chasis so if it does god forbid tip over you stand a good chance of surviving. Retrofit one of those with some MDF or Plywood panels, those fancy triangular tracks in the previous post and slap a minimi on top and you've got a pretty authentic Airsoft tank.
