    good idea, but u need a lot of wheels, u will have to put wheels every 2 or 3 inches again so the tank doesn't breaks .

    I use stronger treds made with white tubes and small grey parts, always 1 light part in the middle and 2 dark parts left and right of it, when u attach 2 wheels on each side of a motor ( leaving an opening between the weels ) the treds will have a lot of grip and won't slide away !
