Default Re: Built your own tracked vehicle?

The simple ones I've seen with solid axles didn't have suspension it was all in teh tires driving the track. It's more of a 2wd truck driving on conveyer belts with an _M_ (bolted through the belt to a piece of angle steel for traction) shape that the tires roll in. in my head I picture an axle with up and down but no articulation and an idler made out of a trailer tortion axle end. The tracks I've ridden in were ROUGH riding.
