We are going to build an Assault Vehicle using Vex robotics and a Rival MXVI-4000.

Step 1: Step 1: Materials

- 1 (Nerf Rival MXVI-4000)

-1 (VEXnet Joystick)

-1 (VEX ARM Cortex-based Microcontroller)

-2 (Angle 3x3x25)

-4 (Standoff 2.00")

-8 (Nut 8-32)

-13 (8mm spacer)

-2 (Linear Rails)

-7 (Bearing flats)

-13 (4.6mm spacer)

-24 (Bearing Pop Rivets)

-6 (Screw 8-32x0.500")

-2 (Linear Slide)

-1 (1x5x1x25 C-Channel)

-3 (2 wire Motor 393)

-3 (Motor Controller 29)

-4 (4" Omni-Directional wheels)

-2 (4" High traction wheels)

-6 (60 tooth gear)

-2 (84 tooth gear)

-2 (60 tooth High strength gear)

-26 (Shaft Collars)

-20 (Screw 8-32x0.250")

-3 (1x2x1x35 C-Channel)

-1 (Angle 2x2x25)

-2 (Pillow Block Bearings)

-2 (Standoff 1.00")

-4 (Standoff 0.50")

-2 (Rack Gearbox)

-4 (1x2x1x25 C-Channel)

The base is important because the linear system, which shoots the Rival MXVI-4000, sit on top of the base.

Step 13: Step 13:

This will insure you build around the Rival MXVI-4000 so it does not jolt when driving around.

Step 14: Step 14: Linear System
