Shall i make a robot or a tank?

I have this idea,

It could work on a robot or a tank

What about a robot that turns into a tank?

tanks sounds better
Build a VS. robot from LP2
I'd say tank if you had more cogs, or even two small wheels to go with it; those work pretty nicely as well. I've also used white circles with green rods in all the slots asgear replacements on tanks before, so that should be an option. Those also take up less space, so if you use those instead of gears you could make a lighter tank in the end.

 Don't bother building a tank unless you use knex chains. Then I would like to see that.

A tank makes a good base to build on for a larger robot so you could be doing both at once.   You could work you way up to something like THIS.
