Looks like the bot will just be a raming battle bot typle thing to knock down stacks? Or else… lots of drilling will need to be done.

I believe the weight was about 42 lbs when we weighed just the frame. I don’t doubt it’ll turn into swiss cheese once we’ve bolted everything down.

We are at 120 lbs with the six wheels, electronics and gear boxes attached. We are about 20 over when we add the “extra” stuff.

To directly answer your question - The frame itself is 42-45 lbs (depending on how you read the scale) - the six wheels (with hubs, rims, etc), are the same weight. The frame is 1/4" channel with 1/8" plate on the bottom - it’s not as bad as it looks - the wheels however are Monster Truck level - so make a guess where the weight is going to come off.:smiley:
