    I swear I was reading about some fairly recently, now I'm home I'll see if I can find the topic again, bear with... EDIT** All I can find is in the Team Triforce build Diary, page 3, but it's not what I've seen before.

    I'm thinking, T-shaped slots cut around the outer edge of the wheel and tyres cast on in moulds, but can't remember where I saw it. Sorry.

    How about 259-B's build diary? I know Adam was experimenting with that.

    Just had a look, and it looks like the one I saw, iirc there’s been a couple of people have tried, I remember some chat about some rubber in a tube and the different shore ratings available, £15 a tube sticks in my head for some reason...

    I'm using rubber from http://www.mouldcraft.co.uk and it seems to be fairly easy to mould and get them onto the hub. Trick now is of course to make a decent hub and get it onto a motor. I'm waiting on a set of brushless to arrive, then going to look at getting them mounted up and tested.

    Wow, thanks for your input, all!

    I brought this up with the boyf and he said it could be possible. I managed to find some rubber filament which should work with his printer - just gotta order some and have a few try outs. Otherwise, the option of printing the hubs then filling with rubber is definitely an option!

    As for the servo mount, it literally just came to my mind that our workshop has a milling machine. As well as some small-ish blocks of aluminium. I might have a brief go tonight at seeing whether that would be an option!

    Hi all!

    So, over the weekend I went round said boyfriends, and he was nice enough to begin the printing process for the new Antweight body.

    At the moment I'm working on a WIP version until I'm happy with the CAD, but so far so good!

    The motors & mounts fit like a glove! I am so happy with this basic shell so far. The wheels I am not 100% happy with, and I am currently looking at trying some of the thick Solarbotics wheel on it. I'll get them ordered soon enough.

    Kieran has said he will print the top lid CAD for me while I am away on holiday, and from there I will get the final bits and pieces of the CAD finalisised, then printed in Neon Green!

    With how light the new 3d printed body is (and hopefully with the amount of space I'll be saving with the new smaller ESC) I am researching some parts to make a small Magnetar-style drum spinner for it. Dave Weston has sent me some great part recommendations already so things are looking good so far!

    Looking very neat, how light is it at the moment?

    Wow, loads of great stuff in this thread! The beetle looks like it's coming along really well and look forward to seeing the ant finished.

    Welcome back!
