Welcome to the list!

> Quick question:  I'm more into the electronic/MPU side of things, so I was
wondering if anyone knows where I can get just a real cheap robot body frame
(w/ 2 dc motors, driver not even necessary) just as a starting block.

For a nice selection of small and exceedingly affordable robot bases, try
Gordon McComb's Budget Robotics:


If you'd like to see some of these robot bases in person, plan on attending
the upcoming RoboRama at the Science Place in Fair Park.  There will be
several in attendance.  I have three, two of which will be running in
various RoboRama competitions.

Although I haven't seen these yet myself, Pololu has what appears to be a
nice little base available in the same price range.  See their web site for
