Default Project Scooby/Doo

Further to my madness of chopping tracks onto a geo tracker, I have settled up in weight to 3000 lbs of Subaru Impreza. MOAR power and a better power transmission system.
Phase one ATD/2TrackSteer with 15"x60" footprint per track
Phase two ATD/ATS slam enough front end parts in the back end and be able to counter steer and crab steer (no crab smiley so have a gator).
First parts en-route one hub and cv-joint for 100 dollar proof of concept check on the hub


Where is SlinkyPickle ? Paging Dr Pickle ? Dr Pickle to the chop-shop please

Well slowly getting parts selected and some drifting in, and got a protip, make sure you have your lathe setup for high elevation work !

Precision cut a splined shaft, bearing face and thread for nut to secure the works, in under four minutes with only a lathe and a mini grinder ?
Done. Probably 1/2 an hour plus to mount sprocket, next

Tracks are still up in the air, ideally I want to use 20x154 studded ones but I have in hand three exquisitely cheap 15x162s if I can get a fourth I will use them as pilot project and save about about $4Gs CAD

The pod design is somewhat like these

but will be driven by a rear sprocket instead of wheel/hub style allowing the track to be flatter aka 20% more flotation
