  1. The world as we know it is destroyed. All that's left is the wastelands of a civilization that once thrived. But for us who have survived the fall of humanity, we need a vehicle that can bring us to safety - and help everyone else do so. It is the Halftracker. This is my submission for the TC17 contest. As the name suggests, it is a half-track. It will have a claw arm attached to the roof of the truck. The arm will have full 360 degrees of rotational freedom, but unfortunately this means only two functions can go through the turntable. The functions/features I am considering for this model are: Driven tracks (uses an individual L motor on each track as opposed to a differential to prevent slipping) Steering on front axle Oscillating front axle (with shock absorbers) Suspended tracks Arm rotation (full 360 degrees) Jib elevation Claw Additional motorized function (e.g. a winch). It will have 3 IR receivers, so there is room for one more function. The suspended tracks and oscillating axle will help the Halftracker tackle any fallen debris, and the claw arm will clear out any roadblocks for people to get through. Currently I have the tracks and their drivetrain and the front axle (the oscillating portion) completed. The tracks are pretty solid at this point, so building the chassis should be pretty straightforward. Photos:
