Thanks to Mr. Modified for the splendid electric fan idea.  Here is the tropical cooling package, tested it this weekend in 100° heat, works verrrry nicely.





No more swamp ass from the inline radiator fan hurrah

NICE!

Side muffler is pretty awesome too.

Pretty much I think this is one of or the best home made tracked vehicle I've seen online. Body and suspension are nicely done and the tracks don't fall off. Not only that but they look professional and they're not complete hack jobs. Nice deal!

Just a little bit of closure on this project.

For the year I am finished with the tracked machine to work on other projects.  It achieved the majority of things I wanted in my first amphib tracklayer.  Low ground pressure, high drawbar pull, floating capability, spacious vehicle deck, easy to build, rugged,  and built from economical common car components.  

Likewise, it starts every time, goes forward, backward, steers, kinda swims and has never left me stranded that wasn't operator induced.  So with that the "Drunk Frog" bids you adieu!

Can you imagine this thing at Haspin trolling the trails? That would be something to see.

I think you should put a grill on it so you can have a burger while you reenact the blitzkrieg. I'm sure @TheBeal will support this idea too Beal Burger lol!
