    Link: The Ultimate All-Terrain Vehicle - With independent 7-feet of suspension articulation, there is very little this bad boy can`t force its way around.

    Slow but sexy. I figure you could do some good navigation, though. Here, they were just showing it off rather than trying to get somewhere with any amount of speed. Like it!

    Banger - I dont think you can, unless you pay him to make you one. Apparantly it was made from scrap parts; Ford 5.0 engine,, V8 from a cobra, transmition and t-case from an old bronco.
    Those are most of the parts he used, the rest of it would just be the hydrolics.

    It also comes with a sort-of anti-theft device; you just park it so the suspension looks horribly broken, and no-one will be interested.

    Matwix, was the 5.0 V8 from a Ford or a Cobra? One is more potent than the other.

    I like how there`s a spare on the back like if you pop a tire in one of those ravines you can just go ahead and replace it.

    Mikeado - Cobra, I think.
    I`m not that good with cars, so I`m not sure what is better, althoguh a description of it said that, so, I guess that`s what it is.

    So it`s basically a sand-car, but ugly and with ridiculous suspension? I wonder why anyone would want to drive around terrain that requires that though...

    Alright, the guys who made this should seriously consider going to NASA with this suspension system. It would work perfectly for Mars rovers, moon rovers, anything!

    I kept thinking that the wheel would bend because of the pressure exerted on it. It happens alot with normal utes so I was kinda surprised it did so well.

    I`m just wondering how long it`ll take the military to contact them for the design.

    I`m just wondering how long it`ll take the military to contact them for the design.

    Many people are talking about military use, but I`m not so sure.

    The military need more than a open vehicle that can carry two people very slowly over extremely uneven terrain. It needs to carry more, tackle steep gradients, grass, mud, water, dust, sand, never break down and if it isn`t heavily armoured it needs to be fast. Unimogs are used over here, because they can do things like hauling 8 men plus kit through a river, up the bank and up a 45 degree mud hill quickly.

    Angilion,

    So, the military couldn`t snatch up the design and have one of its pet contractors improve on it? We`ve seen our military work on flying saucers in the 60`s and 70`s and then abandon the project, work on the "Big Dog" project that looks and acts like nothing more than a zombified pony skeleton and sent our soldiers into urban combat in cardboard clad Hummers.

    You think there isn`t a general somewhere watching this and sporting a full-on robot chubby? We`ve got missiles with cameras on the front of them for cripes-sakes!

    LOL

    Making that into a vehicle interesting for the military shouldn`t be hard. Equip it with a bigger engine if it`s slow (hey, we ain`t seen nothing but tediously slow impossible-terrain-trekking), put some bulletproof plates as bodywork, and presto, reconaissance vehicle!

    After spending the money to create the most badass suspension in the world, he couldn`t spring for a fuel injected engine.
