    Any idea what kind of plastic the wheels of Gabriel were made with?

    The entire thing was constructed out of HDPE - i don't know how thick.

    As demonstrated with Gabriel - it tends to wack out of shape or bits fly off, rather than total devastation, so you can usually take a few hits before things get seriously bad for you - as demonstrated with its survival against Carbide.

    edit: Robot Wars Wikia says its 25mm thick

    There was also a little bit of metal (steel from the look of it) for armor in certain areas.
