    I was wondering how you were progressing with this! Looks great. It's amazing how updating the build diary is the one thing that's easier to procrastinate about than building the robot. :lol: Thanks...

    Yes, the drill output shaft has a 3/8" UNF thread. I think a lot of people use a brake union fixture as a hub, as they are quite long (so they can go all the way through a wheel). The outside is a...

    Looks fab! Really liking the way the forks are assembled. Also I'm a sucker for a red and blue colour scheme so I heartily approve of your aesthetic choices. :)

    Looking great! Well done on using most of the mass budget. :D



    I may be missing something there, but what's that going with to make 5s? Presumably not the 4s, because that would make 7s? :p
