Yup seems like everybody has jumped on the Zombiemania bandwagon, so rather risk being left behind...I did too

We moved the rig back into the main building and have the radiator out for re-core and fuel system components ordered. Also I dropped off a seat with a local upholstery shop along with a link to this thread so the lady could look at the machine and get an idea of how she wants to do the seat design

Is the transfer case usually mounted at that steep of an angle? Are you concerned about there not being any slip yoke between the transmission and transfer case?

I didn't change the angle on the transfer case and the engine and the transfer case are mounted with rubber mounts. Everything was assembled in such a way that there is neutral thrust load between the transmission and transfer case, and there is enough flexibility in the mounts to compensate for intermittent loading due to hard stops or other abrupt changes in motion.

Ok, I just knew how rare and expensive those transfer cases can be. Couple that with the torque of the new engine and I wondered if it was a concern. I know a lot of MVs didn't use a slip spline between the transmission and transfer case, like my old M715, but most civilian manufacturers included one.

Very cool, what make and model is the T/case? And how rare are they? I have a use for something along those lines.
Thanks,
Mark.

They are very rare and more expensive than any other transfer case I have seen. The last one I saw for sale was going for over $20k, not sure if it sold at that price or not. They were only used in the V100, possibly the V150. They are very similar in design to other New Process transfer cases from the era, but obviously in reverse rotation. I have plans to build a rear engine vehicle at some point after I win the lottery but to get around the reverse transfer case idea, I was going to use Rockwell toploader axles and flip the pinions.

How right you are...I am the pickiest person I know! There are so many little things on my buggy that drive me crazy, and I will fix soon . I even had to buy all new grade 8 bolts for the drive flanges because the head markings didn't match. To say I am particular...is an understatement. I am a Stock Broker, so I must be very detail oriented every day. Bottom line....this vehicle brings the win in so many ways!

Thank God...I was beginning to think I was screwed up for doing that kind of thing here

Thanks TorqueRanger!

Well, today was a good day! I purchased a spare transfer case for my machine and was given a lot of extra parts...some I didn't even know was available, like this new V-100 parts manual

No...you're still screwed up...but so am I . I bought new propane quick fill fittings, and the guy brought one out with a differnt style of yellow plastic cap (very slight difference of the markings). I made him take that one back...it's a disease really .

Now I know you are the man to build something for me in the future!

Again, thanks for the kind words!

Here's a small vid of Georgia State Patrol dropping by for some night exercises. The short FLIR segment was transmitted to a small hand held remote console from about 18 miles out...anyway I thought it was kinda neat

Just got all the fuel and hydraulic lines are hooked up, brake lines to follow.

This view will not be available too much longer…The radiator covers this area

So you pull up outside a really fancy restaurant somewhere in Paris, say, throw the valet the keys and tell him not to scratch it.

Do I choose this, or a 40"-tyred tube-framed rock-crawler to do that in? I can't decide!

I can't see where you'd go wrong with either


Just finished the headlight guards...these are made from stainless steel, but will be powder coated matte black.

Words cannot describe how awesome this is. I love tactical vehicles. I must say, the tank drifting is my favorite. That thing is beyond awesome. What power plant did you install into that thing???

I love the look of your building as well. Just all around awesome.

Do you guys build other things too, or mainly focus on tactical type vehicles?

Thank you!
The powerplant in the camo track is a 350 TBI and 4L80E trans from a 1996 shuttle bus used for the 1996 Olympics.

Oddly enough, tactical vehicles are more a hobby than anything else...our primary source of income is from doing process improvements associated with the food and beverage industry

I would not have thought this. If you guys do this kind of work at a "hobby"....I can't imagine what you could do if you made it your primary focus!!
