I built this Vex Robotics Tank five months ago, with the help of Justin (you might see him at iHobby 2007).

I might have building instructions out for it, but I've been very busy...

More info on the Tank (http://ribolabs.wordpress.com/2007/01/01/vex-robotics-build-report-9-video/)

If you have any questions or comments please post them to my blog, here, or if you have my email send them there!

Also if you think this is stupid because you are jealous, don't hesitate to say so. I've herd it before (some where *soo* bad I even had to remove them from YouTube!).

Neato. I think I'm gonna grab up one of the new VEXplorer kits when we get them in stock. Looks like fun. BTW, I fixed your videos in this thread and the Ultrasound Bot thread. Just take the code after "?v=" at the end of the URL and put it in the youtube tags.

Sounds like you'll have fun harassing Matt!

Uh, that came out wrong. I ment "Sounds like you'll have fun hearing Matt"! You know, he'll be so happy that you are buying tons of VEXplorers!

I sold my Vex Kits on eBay a few days ago, because I do not think they will come out with software for Windows Vista. But then again I may be wrong. Also I just wanted a different kit too. I am thinking the Bioloid Comp.

Well I guess I'll see you at iHobby in October.

All the best,
--Scotty

BTW - Thanks for fixing my posts! I had to go as soon as I posted them so I did not look at them.

ummm... yeah. The Administer is trying to get his post count up, good one Scotty;)

Seriously though, I have to let everyone know when a project has been approved for submission.

BTW - Don't ask for my head, it's already taken (yeah, it's true, somebody said they "liked" my head!?).

Nice. I like the articulated tread design, very cool. I bought the Vex tread kit but havent begun using it yet... you gave me some good ideas. But shouldn't the brain and battery be a bit more securely mounted?
