Does anyone know a simple but effective battle bot for a beginner?

Hi, I'm a starter to the "battle bot" world. I've added stuff to rc cars but really I'm kind of a noob at it. So I'm just looking for a simple to make, possibly cheap and effective battle bot to make.

There was just an instructable about taking an rc car and just adding a motor to be a buzz saw and or etc.(requires separate battery I think?)

they have a good tire. they use timing belt and the pulley as the wheels.

I like what Computothought said, and you could build up from that by looking at examples on youtube. You'd be amazed at what people can build.

Search for Sumo robots in general they are quite simple and often small.
