it added about 7/16" to the dia of the plastic. it all depends on the tire you pick out though. I wanted yellow though so I just grabbed something cheap off of amazon. the contact adhesive I used is called Dap. I'm not sure how well it will do with the UHMW but I think its the best non specialized option.

I have been pretty busy working on the bot over the last week. I squared up all of my frame bits and then located and drilled all of my holes. My pretendo bot was getting pretty strong now. I then shaped the reliefs for the wheels in the outside rails. The drive pods are looking very good and feeling very strong. I also sharpened the axe. I'm pretty much at the point where all I have to do is make the top and bottom plates and wire the thing.

It's looking really mean. Are the frame rails .25" 6061? With the standoffs I'll bet it is really stiff and solid when you tighten it all down. Mine is like a bowl of spaghetti in comparison :)

Yup .25 6061. It's very brick feeling with the top and bottom plates on it. All I have left is to wire it.
