What would make a good tank with a low budget?

I am playing a decent size field and we don't have a limit on speed or anything cuz its just at a friends house... so whats a suggestion i don't want it to be 2 big so its easy to be hit but i want it to hold a few pple

Ok, first off, having a price limit, is your first step towards failure. You canít have a limited budget on these things.

Second, you DO have to worry about speed. Safety first, no need to crush your fellow players.

Youíre too young to drive legally, so that limits you to throwing together a bubba go cart/lawnmower/ATV. Thatís going to limit how many people you can have in there, but itíll give you a good base to work off of.

I really do not think you understand the slightest bit what is involved in this project. Might wish to reconsider.

a good tank would be a 68/4500, you should still be able to stay tight. And you should worry about speed, never go over 300 fps

lawn mower is prolly your best bet, especially if you dont wanna spend to much money. heck, if you're really cheap just borrow the one from your house(if you have one) and put a cover type thing over it.

and if your parents dont want you too, remember, sometimes is better to ask for forgiveness than for permission, lol jk.

set a speed limit anyways, those are there for your saftey almost as much as the people around you. if you're goin 25 mph(can you hit that in a lawn mower? prolly not, but just for reference) and you hit a bump, your pretty screwed. most small vehicles dont take to kindly to bumps and going air born.
