RE: The Looks of Things/SethReview by Seth
My name is Seth. I have not put together my robot yet. I figured the frame was going to be tough. It is tough but not to the extent I had imagined. There were certain sections on the laser cut material that had not been fully released from the cuts.
I am going to poke them out in time. It should not be that difficult since most of the parts are cut well.
I was just thinking of what I can purchase to make my Sumo Kit complete. If anyone has any ideas, please contact me...
P.S. Overall...the item is nice and I am sure it will be fun to set up and dismantle to make it mine over and over again.

Great ChassisReview by bryan
This is my first chassis and I am very pleased. I added a plexi glass on the deck above the wheels and moved everything up and switched the Hexagonal Standoff Screws to 2" #4-40. If you purchase this, you will want to expand the kit height-wise. The space between the wheels is great to put a power regulator with 8seg LED readouts for 12v on one side (for a motor controller board) and 5v on the other (for microcontroller). Motor controller board sits on the new Plexi platform at top wheel level and Microprocessor on the level above that (the original top wheel deck Lexan piece with angled corners). The half size deck is on top with a nice prototype solder board and x-bee. I do not feel there is room inside between the wheels for much as far as electronics after wires and split loom. Probably won't be using this as a sumo fighter. It is about the size of a large cantaloupe, not quite the size of a basket ball, but a good size for what I was looking for in an indoor "pet" type roller. I chose this over the tracked models after hearing the sound levels they seemed to produce, but tracked will probably be my next purchase. I would recommend above 12v battery with a power regulator keeping motor controller board right at 12v, You only NEED a two motor controller as the instructions from Lynxmotion shows each side wired together not 4 motor controller unless you prefer 4WD. The "Rims" are not the same as pictured, but that is clearly stated in the sales page, and I still love the wheels. Hope it was helpful, Enjoy your Terminator Sumo!
