Summary:

Direction...
My path I know not;
Anywhere I can travel.
But how do I choose...

This robot is highly agile at low weight, but it struggles under high stress. It is unable to go up a ramp or pull much weight, so it is only good at scuttling around. This drive train can be easily pushed around, so it's not recommended for defensive strategies.
