I like it too, reminds me a bit of FrANTic except with two wheels...should be quite competitive I think, especially with the extra size to add appendages to.

Started work on the new strafen design; centrafugal impellor in the middle for downward force. Need to order some poly-urethane for rollers for new design wheels which should be more reliable. Unfortunalty there is no room for a weapon with the invertable design, but I should get more grip and pushing power with the vacuum effect. Watch this space for an undate when the design is finished, there should be enough time to get this running at the next AWS.

Awesome I like the saint, I look forward to seeing the antweight version.
