    Yeah, but this is a remote controlled wheelchair that can drag a bush hog behind it.

    Looks like great fun! You sure did a terrific job designing and building this beast. My OmegaTrac powerchair had air bags front and rear which gave it 4'' ground clearance plus a very smooth ride. I used to inflate/deflate the front or rear and use the tilt to tackle some very steep hills also. The one option I always wanted for the chair was a device that would always keep the seat pan level regardless of the slope. Needing to stop and adjust my balance was a pain plus sometimes very dangerous. Of course the weight of the base and batteries being over 350 lbs helped a lot.
    Good luck.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
