This the Halo Warthog that everyone's been telling me to build. It has suspension but has to have the solid axles front and rear because the real quad axles were to flimisy, the suspension kinda sucks but it works. It has a functional gun in the rear, and looks very similar to the actual thing. I will be devloping a winch and tow hooks for it in the week to come. I'll try to make some seats but i'm not that good at making seats. The gun doesn't show up in any of the pictures but I do have the assembley of the gun in the inst. and how to install it. If u need a more detailed pic of something I'll send it to u when i get a chance.

Ghostsniper (author)  AZIMUT6 years ago
Thx, I got the wheels from a the Overdrive Monster Truck kit about 2-3 years ago. The truck is really sweet, you should post instructions
do you know any place i could get them from? (apart from ebay, I already tried and no 1 ships 2 the uk...)
Ghostsniper (author)  AZIMUT6 years ago
im' not real sure were you could get the kit in the UK
try ebay.co.uk
Oh ok. Thanks anyway :(
Ghostsniper (author)  AZIMUT6 years ago
you can try to build a small set of wheels with knex or try to find similar wheels like the ones on your truck
ok thanx. if i build il use the 1s of my truck

what if you do not have suspension pieces, what can you put in place of them?
Ghostsniper (author)  harpuia6 years ago
on step ten there is an alt. suspension but it is either up or down you cant have the suspension half way (its a lot firmmer)

i made a new varient of the warthog - its got the gun turret and the troup varient -looks a little more sleaker than this - probs is its a bit bulky
Ghostsniper (author)  xm87 years ago
do u hav pics (if u do post post 3 at a time, so i doesn't go into the side)
bobbyk8817 years ago
dude you should try and make it so where all the weals turn separate.
Ghostsniper (author)  bobbyk8817 years ago
I wish i could but the axles would be to weak, and i've tried
Have you tried using a gear to help them turn?
Ghostsniper (author)  bobbyk8817 years ago
thats not quite the problem, its the suspension part of it the rods that would go out to the axle would twist under weight and cause the warthog body to lower to the floor
make swivel points.
Hellchild7 years ago
dude where do you get the wheels?
yuse the treker ones if you have them
what do they look like?
this is what it looks like

Ghostsniper (author)  Vynash7 years ago
well thats not quite the kit i was thinking of but im sure it would work
i know, these are the trekkers its what i used, i don't have the monster truck ones.
cool thanks
np
Ghostsniper (author)  Hellchild7 years ago
i got them from the Knex Overdrive Monster Truck kit, along with the shocks
could you post a link or something?
Ghostsniper (author)  Hellchild7 years ago
I dont think knex makes that kit anymore, you might have to get it through Ebay or something, i can't find a good pic and my camera hasn't been working real well
