it looks cool!

Nice! Do the front treads swing up and down independently from the rear treads?

SprinkleOtter, I have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. Please explain. lama-mantis, where did you come up with your username?

I bet it actually could eliminate-um...me?

Have you seen natonx's pacbot? Like that.

You should never include "Read the title dumbo." in your project. Also, all the things protruding from the main triangle base look very unstable. It may look menacing, but you should make it compact as well. Four toothed gears are called knob wheels, and wheels that move chains or treads are called sprockets. I don't see any clutch gears in your project...

I will post V2 soon. BlizzardPenguin, I have fixed almost all of the stability issues. This is just Version One, you really did not have to be so critical.

SprinkleOtter, no, but now I have an idea!

Dang bro that's boss. Can the cannon move in its own, like is there a motor moving the shooter? If not u should add it

Very creative! It is ten times better than my robo rover, obviously. :)

RoboGeek525, it does. Caleb5112, thanks!

Sorry about being critical if you've fixed the stability that's good :) Your last additional step doesn't make a good first impression though.

BlizzardPenguin, do you have mindstorms? You have no robots on your profile.

can you give a video?

I heard you wanted an idea for a new project. You should make an NXT-EV3 compatibility test. Apparently You can use all NXT sensors and motors on EV3 but you can only use EV3 motors and touch sensor on the NXT.

look at that gun

This is the first of my Eliminator series. Obviously, I now have Ev3! So, this is my first creation with it! I did use some NXT parts though. For more information read the following steps. All suggestions are welcome! (I would add Power Functions, but I don't have any yet. Emphasize on YET.)
