What are you building ? And why do you need tracks????

is the main reason a robot can't carry 200 lb's because of the srain on the motor shaft
or are there other factors

that is one factor, you would need larger bearings, larger chassis, thicker material MUCH larger battery.

I've never tried any "buyable" chassis, i make my own chassis ;-) But it looks awsome!

I think i know what ure thinking of, u mean like one of those robots you see in the US army driving around in the desert or whatever :D ?

If im right then, it should be a standing robot but instead of the legs moving its attached tracks (like on tanks) making the robot move?
