    It looks pretty cool although I can't help but think that it could potentially be an absolute nightmare to keep running and fixing it up between fights if it sustains any damage will be next to impossible.

    I like those wheels! Any chance of documenting the build process?

    We have spares of every part and the armour is replaceable. So shouldn't be too bad.

    Also to take it apart the entire top or bottom comes off and you can access everything. Which makes it significantly easier to replace parts than a welded design.

    We had a few comments about that already, we are going to move the wheels out a bit to give it 10mm.

    What's the yellow goop? Liquid silicone?

    Let us know how grippy the moulded tyres turn out. Interested to see how effective self moulding can be.

    Also very pleased to see this making it into the real world! Great job.
