I started my robot when I was about 12 years old. I was inspired by shows such as Robot Wars. However, I did not know much about how to build a robot, plus I lacked a welder. My first successfully running robot was built around fifth or sixth grade, but there was not enough room for my batteries. =( I then built a much taller robot. I didn't. however, fully understand the power of a tape measure, and the drive chain kept popping out. A couple of versions later, I got a welder, and then made my next somewhat successful robot. Unfortunately it was too top heavy, and the tracks that were installed were too short, so I decided to design what is now my current version. It has six wheels, and each side can pivot independently of each other.

A bad center joint and slow hydraulics plague my robot.
This is an introduction, plus a drive train test of my robot.
