That is a nice kit.  I have some of those metal gear motors (and later bought the wheels).  Amusingly enough, I spent a lot of time looking for the 'right' motors for robot #2.  Most of what I found were either too small or too big.

Then I saw the metal gear motors and they looked Perfect.  So I ordered four and then realized after they came, that each is about the size of the first digit of my thumb ...LOL.

Too small... way too small.  I should have read the dimensions a bit more closely.

Now I have the right motors but of course I kept the metal gear motors and bought them their wheels, they will be perfect for a desktop robot one day.

Do you still remember, where you ordered those motors?

Yes those are the motors I ordered.  I got them from Pololu back in November of 2012.  They are so cute you could mount them on a chain and wear them as jewelry.  I eventually ordered some wheels and some plastic brackets to mount them but haven't used them yet.

People sometimes us old DVDs or CDs as a robot base, they would work well at that size.
