What is the Go Mobile?
Take a 1974 Cadillac El dorado cleaved down to a self contained two-wheel-drive module that can be used to propel any combination of chassis, crew, cameras, cranes, lighting requirement, and on-camera vehicle
( or proportion of vehicle ) to which it can be bolted. Where the actor can sit inside and act like he is being chased while a stunt man drives in a remote cockpit that can be positioned virtually anywhere out of the shot of the camera and you have the Go Mobile.

This fine piece of movie machinery is built to put the actors safely into the action without even needing them to be there.

How To install the Tri-C Hood kit
A common problem with four-piece hoods is that they often have a loose fit against the body, and they don’t appear smooth even when they are adjusted perfectly.

More Facts and Figures

Stuntmen Dan Bradley, Kevin Scott, Scott Rogers, and Darin Prescott (left to right) are the guys behind GO Stunts and the Go Mobile.

This truck was used in Cradle to the Grave and was, in part, the inspiration behind the construction of the Go Mobile.

Here is a shot of the Go Mobiles engine a '74 Cadillac El dorado 500-cubic-inch V-8.

Thank's to Rick Cresse - a long standing Southern California hot-rod fabrication shop that also builds specialty vehicles for films the Go Mobile is a reality and progress was swift. His first question was, upon being asked to fabricate the Go Mobile was, "How fast do you ant it to go?" A range between 60-70 mph was established and Tri-C came up with a truss-sliding chassis concept. Tri-C also helped with the fact that the stock Cadillac front suspension used torsion bars that don't require tall perches (although the bars themselves were swapped out for Schroeder aftermarket units). But the stock cadillac recirculating-ball steering wouldn't work with a movable cockpit, so it was replaced with a hydraulic steering similar to that used on buses and the shift linkage wouldn't work so the trans axle was fitted with an air shifter.
