TOO COOl. It's true that the Tires are a big expense. The tires and suspension on my 1:2 scale are the biggest expense thus far. I am really looking forward to seeing the first layers of the body panels applied. I am so glad that there are more Tumblers being built. Because I WILL own one eventually. I even have WIFE approval for it. Anyway, I will watch this thread with great interest! And thanks Kevin for creating this thread, just seeing the chassis really makes the dream of building the car within reach. Regards to the builder/engineer.

Good luck with the build. I'm hoping to see more information come out of this thread too. However, I wouldn't hope for much. There is either very little real information regarding the Tumbler, or just very little information sharing going on. I've seen a couple projects start on here, and haven't heard anything since then. Guess everyone lost interest after the movie left the theaters.

My canopy works the same way that the real cars work. Using the bearing and bar method, with an actuator to push the canopy forward. Nitro's car works in a similar fashion.

502 crate may have been TOO much power for the drivers. Wasn't the driver practically sitting next to the engine as it is? I'm not too up on my GM powerplants, but I'd think overall dimensions played a part in their engine choice.

Absolutely not, my friend built every thing you see in the pictures in two weeks. He had to abandon the project because some one from this board tried to claim he built the car and tried to sell the car without his permission and got him in trouble with WB.
The electric motor was canned from a proto-type vehicle that he owned. Hopefully he will finish the car in the near future.
