Still awaiting video :)
A few days ago I received 240 thread links (bricklink order) adding to the 74 from 8043... I've started building small machines but the grip is a problem. I went to the biggest book store (and office materials) I know of around here but they didn't have rubber bands in size "10" (as someone wrote was ideal) and they couldn't special order them :( I went to a hardware store but they didn't have these. Neither could I find it on ebay.
Gekke Ted, on the photo with lots of these there is a label. Is it some article # for this items or names? Googling such information can sometimes give results on finding the product, any help with that would be very much appreciated :)
I am truly sorry for the delay
I do have a video but it's hard to control the model and make a decent video at the same time. I have shot a video with my phone mounted on the model, but I am not sure whether it's useful. Another problem was that my batteries where nearly dead.
So two issues; I had mounted two M motors, one for each tread. Driving the model was great, but steering it was a problem. Not enough torque, maybe due to a lack of battery power. Changing the motors to two XL motors resulted in great movability and turnability. So making a larger model would definitely need two XL motors.
I will replace the batteries with fully loaded ones and see if I can get someone to steer it, while I make a movie. Also I like to do some tests with an NXT brick and two NXT motors.
And I will see if there's an article ID somewhere on the bag.
