Double-Tracked

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2colMsliCqw Double-tracked is my attempt at a robust tank using the rubber treads. I used the rubber treads instead of the hard plastic treads since they have much better grip (and I have no plastic treads). This worked very well. The only down side to this is that there was no suspension. Also, the gears connecting the front and back treads would often catch on the ground. Overall though, I think this could outperform almost any other Lego tank the same size with hard plastic treads.

Instructions can be downloaded here(Pdf).

3D files can be downloaded here (Zip).

Check if you have all he parts by going to rebrickable.

  1. It would be nice if you could be able to provide instructions to program a nxt remote on this tank im in the maine robotics club I’m interested in this build I think it’s a great concept easy to build instructions I think if I’m able to build this tank with a Bluetooth remote that would be awesome and i think it would be a winner in the tournament, thanks
