Seeker 2 (http://www.huv.com/miniSumo/seeker2/), my autonomous mini-sumo robot, won first place in the masters mini-sumo competition at the Canadian National Robot Games last weekend in Toronto...

That's a really interesting design. I like it when people deviate from the standard "bulldozer" style. Seeker is definitely one of the sleekest mini-sumos I've seen. Also, could you give us some details on the drive system, or is that top secret? ;)

[edit:] :p Duurrr, sometimes I forget to click on links and then I ask for clearly available information... I like how you packed the motors inside the wheels to maximize surface area.

I added a new picture to my Seeker 2 page (http://www.huv.com/miniSumo/seeker2/) with the robot pretty much taken apart (http://www.huv.com/miniSumo/seeker2/Seeker-II-Pieces.jpg), which shows more internal details...
