Nathan III - The Turtle (Rock/Mr. Wiggles)

The robot on the bottom was The turtle. For some reason it moved so slowly, Nathan and I never did figure out why, but it was a simple tank tread using a chassis similar to that of the box bot, except we had the side plates you see on the top. We are using gears and sprockets attached to motors in the back. The front had a axle all the way across so it couldn't turn. We "fixed" it and this time it wouldn't move at all (the Rock). We took off the treads and got Mr Wiggles on the top. That was the last time we supported the axle in only one spot. LOL...
