Hi there.

I am looking to model a robot i am building which features an expanding wheel to track mechanism wuite integral to the overall design. Something like this http://www.botjunkie.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/img_2013-custom.jpg  It's not quite loke a tank track so much as it is a spring-retracted shaped rubber belt. I am trying to model it in such a way that when i move the arms toe track actually expands. If that is a huge undertaking, a simple "rubber band" around the arms and the wheel will do. accompying are matching pictures of what i have so far
