Hi Tom,

- I discovered the "tank web" on the net - clubs that specialize
 in R/C tanks/etc -[not sure, but these guys may be heavy into
 cannons - they call it "armour"]:

- tanks you can buy:

- really nice picture of model tank innards - 2 motors, geared
 way down, not sure how they synchronize the speeds:

- modifications - dual-motors, gear trains:

- hmmm, appears to be a lot more money in R/C modeling than in
 PICs :).
