    Kreb,
    Are you going to make it R/C? Are you keeping the chassis or cutting it up?

    Can't wait to see it.

    yep she's going to be a rc. i have a power wheels truck hood for it that fits the wheel base perfectly. soo she'll be mounted on it. i'm just deciding right now if i want to use the motor i have witch means i'll have to make mounts for it and flip the axle over to have the drive on the other side or get the motor thats go's for it. the motor i have has electric start and a gear reduction system. it cam out of a mini chopper that was dot approved so it was ment for 200lbs people and could get up to 50mph. so i figured that should give enough power to a 50lbs-60lbs rc. will post pics of the hood later. before i mount it i'll have to either cut part of the hood in the back or cut and reweld the back top of the fram so the hood will sit lower.

    got the steering started. did a prototype and tested it and it worked great. had only one servo on but i am going to have two hooked up. took a vid and posted it on youtube but i don't know how to post a link so you can see how well it worked. anyhow here are some pics. i will be making the brakets out of steel and welding them on. if your interested to see i go under krebidoux on youtube. i think if you just punch in my name that may work.

    What type of servo are you using? I would make sure you use a steel gear servo rated at 6V and make sure your receiver is putting out 6V to it. That will give you some pull. Two will be better, just make sure you match them well.
    Nice job so far.:cool2:
