RC power functions control
- XL motor for Drive
- M motor for High/Low gear selection
- M motor for Steering
- M motor to raise/lower the snow plough
The model also features
- Full Suspension - simulating the action of the leaf spring suspension.
- Drive to all four tracks via central differential and Differential for each track pair
- Pivoting Tracks
- Opening Doors
- Manual adjustment to Snow Plough to angle it Left or Right
- Steering wheel in Cab turns as the tracks turn
I think that in time for winter I may strip out the High/Low gears and put in two L motors to increase the power and speed, then test it out on the snow. I may need to double up the tracks as well.

Sry if you wanted to post these yourself, just ask me to take them away:)
This looks very complicated, I would love to see the linkage for the drive axles to the four "legs".

And yeah, I second the request for pictures of the linkages to the tracks ;-)

In the end the suspension and track connections turned out quite simple and effective. It took a while to come up with the sturdy design though. Regarding the tracks themselves, the tyres I used on the track guide wheels in the MOC look better, but are a little thick so needed an extra chain link to be put in - reducing performance. For best performance you need to use the thinner - tyres with offset tread.
I will make a video at some point, I don't have a great video camera though!!!
