- Sozbots: The US antweights
are three times as big as ours, but still a useful site. Useful

Another US site. They have cool tyres
Batteries and servo plugs. Good for LiPo batteries, but they don't
stock antweight size NiMh batteries any more.
For Antweight (2/3AAA) size NiMh batteries, but you'll have to
solder a lead and plug on yourself.
- Dycem: Lovely rubber compound
for grippy tyres
- RS: Excellent for electronic
parts and tiny nuts and bolts
- Farnell: Similar to RS,
useful for hard to find general engineering/technical stuff.

for robots larger than antweights, but get your polycarbonate
