The T005's drive wheels are wrapped in 1/4" soft rubber.  I had slippage on my first 
(and only one so far) test run but I hadn't really tensioned the tracks well.  I'll 
be tinkering with my track setup at Frank's on Saturday to see if I can get some 
better results.

Internal combustion engines are prohibited in the rules.
