First Combat Robot (Antweight) Help

Hey guys! Very Happy

As you may have guessed from the title of this thread, this is my first bot and because of that, I have a few questions (which probably sound stupid). Here they are:

1. Do my parts "work" together?
2. Is there an issue in the diagram below? (excuse my masterful artistry)
3. Do you recommend any wheels for the bot?

4. Does the name Overflow inspire fear into your hearts?

Parts:
Transmitter and Receiver - https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobby-king-2-4ghz-6ch-tx-rx-v2-mode-1.html
Battery - https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-180mah-2s-25-40c-lipo-pack.html
Armour (2mm) - http://www.acrylicsonline.com.au/shop-product/polycarbonate-sheet/polycarbonate-clear-sheet-d-i-y-size
Power Switch - http://robotcombat.com/products/0-FT-MINI-SWITCH.html
Drive ESC - http://botbitz.com/product-category/antweight/
Drive Motors - http://botbitz.com/product-category/antweight/

These are the wheels I use https://hobbyking.com/en_us/small-wheel-diam-25mm-width-10mm-5pcs-bag.html Grind down to 20 mm. For larger diameter, use a larger ratio gearmotor.

I prefer mode 2 Tx. Throttle on the left. Get this cable also. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobby-king-2-4ghz-6ch-tx-usb-cable.html I use these http://botbitz.com/product/botbitz-gearmotor-12mm-301-low-voltage/

The power switch and transmitter are available from BotBitz also. You will find postage from overseas can be quite high on heavier items like the Tx.

I put a 3s lipol in my transmitters.

You will need some M1.6 screws.

Instead of cutting off the power supply wire on the second ESC's servo connector, you can pull the contact out of the header (lift the plastic latch with a jeweller's screwdriver) and then tape it around the lead with some electrical tape. This way you can put it back in if you want that ESC to supply power in the future.
