    Dude, there's a disturbance in the Matrix somewhere. Last year at around the same point, we both thought of making a Roadblock replica Last Summer (Starting about this time) I spent a load of...

    Well, Voodoo is about 600mm X 600mm (same as Hobgoblin which is convenient as I'm buying its wedge). My second will also be around that. But really anything that fits into the weight

    It survived in a heavyweight after being thrown around by Apollo, so it'll more than do in MWs

    If you're interested, I'm using TZ85s and the Cytron dual 60a for my middleweight. Only 24v mind you

    Whatever you like really. But most of us are using wheelchair motors, as they're a lot more viable on a middle, plus really cheap.

    On the little wheels I've got, Shu! moves at a relatively steady pace as below (5 minutes, 27 seconds into the video): There are some that are much quicker but for my purposes, the Como motors...

    Shu! uses a couple of Como 918D motors (https://www.technobotsonline.com/918d15112-1-re-280-1-4mm-metal-geared-motor-15-1.html) which move it quite happily. However, if I was going to build it again,...

    I'm almost certain Donald Thump used Ampflow E30s, as does Apex. If you run them, you'll get a moving heavyweight chassis. But nothing more. It will have barely any pushing power, so you'll need...

    No, I've little engineering experience myself so still learning what things are and what they are used for. Looking at an example, I can see that working though. The flange is threaded to fit onto a...

    Unfortunately not, I had planned to go but then other commitments popped up which I cannot avoid. A mistake on my part, I meant on the flange shaft so the nut can seat properly against it....

    I'll drop a M5 bolt through the shaft, possibly grind a small flat onto the motor shaft and then stick a nyloc nut+washer on it if it works.

    Yeah, that was what I suspected I may have to do. I have a pillar drill attachment but not a clamp that fits so I'll see if I can find someone with a facility to this. Thanks ;)

    If the flange was going to sit the way it was in the previous post, I'd possibly agree but the flange is the wrong way around, it needs to be in this orientation, which the holes in the flange...

    Since my last post, I've found that I can drill the flange relatively easily but fouled up on the motor shaft. Initially, my idea was to use the flange fitting as a wheel hub and have a M5...

    So Kaizen never made it to Grantham, it just wasn't ready in time. The wheels continue to be a problem, I got some M12 plates to mount the wheels to, drilled out the bolt holes to M8 and they are...
