Tank tracks. Sources? Theory?
August 3, 2011
I am looking at tank tracks at the moment, and I want to ask two types of questions.
Firstly - theory
I am looking for a rescource which explains stuff like the theory behind tank tracks. What does good and bad design like? For model robots, does it make sense to use bogie systems etc. I'm guessing there is a lot of stuff on the net, but no idea what to put into google to get the results back that I am looking for.
Can anyone throw up any useful links?
Second - Sources.
I read Servo magazine each month, and there are a lot of tank track bots being shown each month - but I don't see anyone selling anything but the small kits. For the medium and large sized bots, I don't see anything to buy.
Again - can anyone point me at some links?
