Thanks,  I had actually been thinking of a sumo robot that used tank
tracks when I found your site. But know I think I will have to go
upscale and build a all out tank instead.  I have yet to decide on real
tank to base a design on. I had a design in mind for the sumo, but it
was not based on any real tank. Just a crazy idea I had, so I will have
to give this some thought (sit and look out the window and hope a tank
drives by?)

Welcome aboard, Jonathan.  With your mechanical design background, it 
sounds like you'll fit well with our motley gang of modelers and 
battlers.  Yes, one of the strengths of our hobby is the diversity of 
design solutions, most of which have been battle proven.  There is no 
single way to solve every problem and people continually improve on the 
solutions.  What tank are you considering?

Also, we have a number of battlers in your area, and I'm sure they'll 
speak up and let you know where they are.  If you can swing by and meet 
with them, that's the fastest way to get started.

Hope to see you on the battlefield one day.
