Ya, needs more traction, the DVD wheels are slipping. I'm building a better chassis now, and will find something better for wheels. My peanut butter lids look like a good candidate.

Peanut butter (or hot chocolate) lids make excellent wheels. Wrap them with ordinary elastic bands for superb traction, way better than foam or airplane wheels. And, you can stick them onto the servo horns using hot glue, after a week or two they come loose but the glue just breaks off and you can stick them on again. You can also easily poke a hole in the middle to put the screw through into the servo horn.
