Default Crazy idea

I was looking at a picture of a stampede that a guy was building with an extended chassis and the idea popped in my head. I wanted to make an air ride system for the stampede but i realized that thats too much but then i thought about a hydraulics set up for one. Think it would be possible? I have to figure out how i would do it though with running a hydraulic pump and lines. My goal is to be able to rais and lower the front and back of the truck. Ideas anyone?

You could prolly do something like that. It will takes some planning.

I've seen a few rc rock crawlers with hydraulics for steering and others that have used air for the suspension.

Looking at that thread the air suspension would be easier than the hydraulics.

the air shocks on the crawler i like but i want to be able to adjust them like air ride on a car. So the micro pump could work if its capable of producing air and filling a mini are tank for adjustable ride height. I would need a way to wire a switch on a radio to where if i hit the switch i could lower it or raise it. I have a touring car i actually want to use this on instead of a offroad truck. So where could i find some small shocks for a touring car that would be air tight. Any other suggestions as to how i could make this work? Any other information or just anything for that matter. I know this is gonna take some time and work to make this work but i want to get everything out on the table now so when it comes build time there will be less questions. Thanx guys
