A rover. (Suspension and steering showcase)

#1
So, i've been experimenting a lot this week.
This is what i'm on right now. Developing some good steering and suspension for large vehicles. The suspension system is based on the Mars rover Curiosity.
It uses pistons as shock absorbers and has some structural suspension.
You can lock the different suspension axles.

Basics:
[Arrows] to drive.
[H] to activate the shock absorbers (needed, or the machine will break while moving)

Basic Suspension Locking System (SLS):
Extend the locks only while the axles are aligned (You can always release)
[Numpad 7] Extend (keep pressed untl grabber touches the opposite axle) the front left&right axle lock
[Numpad 8] Release the front left&right axle lock.
[Numpad 4] Extend (keep pressed untl grabber touches the opposite axle) the front&rear axle lock
[Numpad 5] Release the front&rear axle lock.
[Numpad 1] Extend (keep pressed untl grabber touches the opposite axle) the rear left&right axle lock
[Numpad 2] Release the rear left&right axle lock.
