a project of epic proportions

ok so this is going to be my first attempt at a build log. its been a while since i have did anything with "toy" grade rcs. i found 2 super cool 1/6th scale rc humvees on a used website and picked them up yesterday. the brand name of them is "ultimate soldiers" and i guess they were sold at walmart a few years back. they originally retailed for 200 bucks. they are digital proportional with changable crystals and hobby style pistol radio. they run off of a 7ah lead acid battery simular to a powerwheels vehicle. they also have a "tow" missle launcher that can be fired from a button on the transmitter. i tested both of them, and they worked ok, but had typical toy grade flaws like glitching and sloppy servo control. seeing how i have 2 of them, my plan is to keep one stock and convert the other to hobby grade running gear. heres some pictures of one of them.
