Roboball robot Answered

I want to build a roboball bot out of a NXT set and $30. I have no clue how to start. I can build a base. But tracking and other things are getting in my way. Any ideas?

Do you mean the "game" Roboball ?

No, there is a "sport" where people enter robots that bump a special ball into goals. Sort of like soccer, accept with robots.

Oh ok, I was not familiar with that. Do you have a link to a site I could go to, to get a better idea of what you mean ?

Welcome. If you have the kit, it is sorta like the tribot.

Go to Lego.com and find mindstorms. NXT is 2nd generation of robots.

yes, It is an advanced kit for robotics that uses legos for structure.
