I think u could make it an rc buggy if you tried or if youuse elastic bands you could make it 4 wheel drive but I think its good enough now

Yeah well i typed that before trying it out and well it is't that great but still.
For a week now i am trying to build a monstertruck whit suspension and stearing. I am using about the same design. I am doing it so that  that you are able  to hook it up to cyber knex engine's and make it rc. But because i haven't got cyber knex engine. I am stuck whit 2 engine's from a crane. That are hooked up to 1 remote i you know what i mean.

Some of this was stolen from a book.

i invented the whole lot all by my self. which part did you think i copied?

author

I see stuff from the "Crumple Car", in a late '90s-early '00s book. I think.

quite a cool looking buggy reminds me of early tamiya style rc cars i think a v2 would be great with much more reinforcements and just generally more bulk
