The guy i talked to at Whistler. How are you doing?
I came up with a good design for flat grousers and easy to make tire guides. I'll post a few pics tonight if i get a chance...
I am really impressed with your project. It almost needs its own separate section. Most of us modify our rigs and call it a "build". This is a true BUILD!

bill-tracks4.jpglooks good but what about a bit steeper pitch so the wheel wont walk out of the track?
The stress on the side in a tight turn could be pretty significant.. just sayin.. looks great
and look forward to each post.
some different examples below

another idea ... this type inner cleat would not damage the wheel
I started working on the Hägglund again today. First i set it at ride height and put on one of the last few missing tubes:
Then i started cleaning up the wiring mess and place all the switches and fuses and electrical stuff:
Prepping the ammo can for the ecu:
Everything together. It`s a lot cleaner now:
Also ordered about 170ft of square piping for the grousers...
When this thread first started, I really didn't have any hope for it. I figured it was someone just throwing ideas out there. I have been away for a few months and am utterly surprized/exilerated to see the progress you have made. The two quotes in your signiture could not be more spot on! Being an R&D engineer and someone who makes most of his money Macgyvering things together, I am proud, impressed, and excited to see your continued advancement. Keep up the good work!
