Truck “Tank” Town Thunder is proud to present their 2016 Robot. Stay tuned for a few updates as we come back to Michigan to compete.

Are those rollers mounted the way they are because you have a suspension system? This is a fantastic looking robot, I can’t wait to watch some webcasts!

I suppose I can answer this. Yes, each roller arm is supported by a gas shock independently of every other. You can just see a hint of them if you look at the extra pivot point attached to the back roller, which serves to offset the shock away from the top drive roller.

Check it out at Lansing (week 4) and Howell (week 5).
