Make a semi-scale model of the SubaruHummer of course!
It's in it's very early stages. I'll probably end up using the existing tubing as a prototype for the real body. I'm not sure exactly what to make it out of? Brass tubing just kinked! Aluminum rod works great but connecting/welding/brazing is a bit of a problem for me? Steel--weight? Since I have the plans for the full size version, I can make it exactly to scale and the platform has unlimited power so weight is not that big of a concern but still, a full steel body would weigh and be a little top heavy on steep angles.
Other modifications in the works are;
Rear steering--order the front end parts bolt on the back!
Dual speed controllers--one ESC for the front wheels one for the rear.
Any thoughts, suggestions, insults...
Ya, I know I had too much time on my hands last weekend!
82 SubaruHummer--now a mini version!
84 GL Mad Max

It’ll make for some neat pictures with the full-scale car.
