Here's "Someone's in the Kitchen With Dynamite" (only half built).

Four drill motors, two 50A boat speed controllers and a fire alarm battery.

looks pretty solid, I take it you will get some box section to make the frame rigid at a later stage? I would not rely on the polycarb to do that.
Best regards,

I've got a cunning plan to make an angled box out of http://www.directplasticsonline.co.uk/h ... a066e37a4f this stuff (12mm) something like Dynamite would be if it didn't have to fit in the cube. I'll fix the chassis (what you can see so far) to the box via some bolts with springs between the box and the chassis, and the chassis and the end nut, to give it a suspension.

I chose polycarbonate for the chassis because it should flex if hit from the side. My tactics are about survival.

Let me know if that makes sense.
