Make it Extreme's Tank Chair

Using our two, previous creations with the number 0106 and 0107 accordingly, we made a new creation with the number 0108, which became our new vehicle in our collection. Undoubtedly, we could not omit adding in our collection of vehicles, a Tank Chair. 

Initially, we made a metallic base, on which we screwed the differential braking transmission that we created in a previous video (0106). On this metallic framework, we placed a110cc four stroke engine. Completing the rest of the framework, we put two levers, one for the right hand and one for the left hand. Pulling the left lever, the vehicle turns left while pulling the right lever the vehicle turns right. Additionally, at the centre of our structure, we adjusted a chair that was modified according to our vehicle. In this way, we made a Tank Chair.

After many days of work and making and collecting all the pieces apart of the engine the outcome satisfies us a lot. Aesthetically, the chain-linked chair meets our taste as well as functionally is perfect as we did not need to make any modifications. Regarding the noisiness that is provided by our vehicle, it is caused by the evaporation that we made out of stainless steel 304. 

In conclusion, despite our vehicle’s heavy weight and relatively small motor, it moves really well and fast providing to its driver a very good sense and experience. Also, the rubber crawlers enable our vehicle to move silently with reduced vibrations. Even if it was hard and expensive making it, the Tank Chair is a great tool to add in our collection. It is also very useful for disabled people who need to move on rough pathways, for entertainment purposes as well as for various agricultural tasks. For some people it is just a nice project, for others it is another vehicle but for us it is the Make it Extreme’s tank chair.
