As far as the tracks are concerned, what did you buy, and what did you have to fabricate?

I'd love to take that design and add some mower blades to it. Im sure cutting the grass with something like that would be MUCH more fun :P

Hi I'm wondering how much you paid for the tracks? The cheapest I'm finding is $159 each online.

Awesome, so $159 each is a good deal. It's definately not a cheap way to go. But it seems the best option. Thanks for answering my questions. I'll keep an eye out for more vids. I absolutely love your bot. Agile little guy.

What is the stall current for wheelchair motors?
The Sabertooth 2x50hv has a max of 100A. What happens if you pass that?
