R/C in Afghanistan. If anyone can come up with a good way RC10talk can help our military out I would be willing to donate parts/car.

Here's an idea....I put this together when I was in Iraq. It's a Traxxas Emaxx that was supplied to the EOD guys for use against IEDs. They really didn't know what to do with it, except strap C4 to it, drive it to the IED and detonate it...one-time use. I took it a little further...The idea was to carry a stick of C4 to the IED, drop it and run.
I beefed up the front shocks, shifted the battery weight to the rear for balance, built an opening claw, and added a remote camera they had lying around. The wire mechanism on the side carried the detonation cord, so it wouln't get caught in the rear wheels.
It looks crude, but I had no budget or hobby shop, and had to use anything I could scrounge or steal.....function before fashion.
