    Yeah, it shouldn't be a problem provided it passes tech check of course ;) Hopefully I'll have Kaizen running by Grantham in time to iron out any flaws in it.

    It'll definitely mean 6 powered wheels, which means more traction but if the belt goes, it means a loss of power and, depending on how it is setup, a lack of mobility on one side.

    A gear system can be fiddly, especially at the Antweight size and I don't know of any belt driven Antweights either.

    The very simple option is to run 6 motors, one per wheel but 6 motors will mean...

    Depends on how you plan to drive the 6 wheels I think. If a miniature gear system could be used, then I can't see why it couldn't work.
