Very nice!
I haven't thought of doing something like that myself before.

A slowly moving, large, brown machine - just as it should be. Good job. :thumbup:

Great job! This is an awesome mod and a major improvement, even the speed is realistic. I'd love to see it mowing over some imps in a video!  :laugh:

Nice job! I've never been good with PF, so even though this should be a simple mod as a tracked vehicle with steering already built in, I'm impressed. :sweet:

As the others have said the speed is great!  While the brickshelf folder isn't public I'll check back to see the pictures.  It's looks great overall! :thumbup:

You hid that main receiver very well!  I had to stare at it for minute to see it.  You got all of the parts in that space very well!

This is awesome.  If TLG makes another Sandcrawler someday, I wouldn't be surprised if they go this route considering the walking AT-AT.

If I get any of the CTT then I will probably try and motorise them, or the TIE tank, Sandcrawler, or the any other wheeled or tracked vehicle.

Good idea the turbo tank would be cool but it would have to go quite fast :classic:
