oh ya, hope to have it driving sometime this month.

Did some "CAD" work on one the possible modular wedges I'll be making out of the mountain of tool steel I just got.

Still saving up for the sheet of titanium I plan on making all the armor out of.

My anti-triggo concept wedge. This thing is massive!!! I'm planning this wedge around .160" o-1 which will put it around 6 pounds for this wedge. all my other wedges will be a mixture of .25" a-2 and or d-2. I'm thinking about heat treating to around 40-45 c.

why not the ever popular ar400/500? its pre-hardened and somewhat inexpensive.

better metal with higher carbon content's that I can get heat treated to just the right level and I already have o-1 a-2 and d-2 in great quantity's for very VERY cheap.  ;D

Wheels yaay. saved 1.5 pounds per wheel by switching to colsons, although I feel I may have to armor them.

I'd be interested on seeing how well d2 works. The stuff is a nightmare to use and is very wear resistant, not certain about toughness though.

SUCCESS... kinda. wired it up by just holding the wires together with tape and ran the wheels with poncho blocked up. I'm waiting for some half links to tighten up the tension before I put it on the ground. Right now the chain is loose enough when I went from full forward to full reverse A bunch of sparks from the little sprocket shot out. Very exciting (the first 4 times) these motor's are kinda nuts.

Alright I have hit a mental block on how to do something. The pic is the current rear armor, .25" 5" diameter 6061 aluminum pipe, I now want to use .08 grade 5 titanium sheet. My question is how would I go about or what equipment would I need to bend titanium sheet 180 degrees with a 5" dia?

if it was an aluminum frame you could screw in one end, torch it and roll it like tha all on the bot but mwith in being uhmw you best bet would be to cut the piece to size, clamp it to one end of the current back armor and wrap it around that for a 5 1/2" rad, then massage it by hand as needed if you can using the inside of the tube armor to give it that extra bit.
