We get almost all of those parts with the kit that we got this year, so that was relatively easy to make.

Unfortunately that wasn't the best video of it moving around. We had it sliding across the surface. Just the smallest push would send it flying. Granted it's probably about 70lbs under max weigh... and it'll be pulling the goal trailer behind it - that's going to change the driving characteristics alot!
Thanks, Drizz!

I was thinking like lawnmover wheels or something.
That is pretty cool though

Nope. We have to use the wheels provided, unmodified.

I'll get some more video this weekend. It's still just the test bot, but we have the 36 pound trailer it has to pull all built. And the camera (which is that little white box sticking up - a web cam) can track the colored targets, and even drive up to it and tell you how far it is away... pretty cool!
Thanks, Drizz!
