Bot Chassis

Due to budget constraints, it is hard to find a chassis that has a wide enough base to hold all our equipment and support the weight. So far this seems to be the best bet:

This would be ideal:

If time permits, we may be able to build our own chassis and use our own motors. The only problem with this is making the turning function for the bot. We could put this down for future enhancements, to build a chassis that can accommodate different terrain and maneuver around obstacles with ease. The target market for this robot would be police and military applications, so having a bot built for different environments would be optimal.
