can you show me the gear layout on the bottom so i now how to lay the flat gears in the correct position for it to walk

does the dual motor mean you can now steer it?

Yes! However, there is a small problem with the two sides getting out of sync when steering it left and right.

Terrific work.

Oh and one more thing: vid-e-o .. vid-e-o!

A video will be up once this gets moving! A little reworking needs to be done.

Wow, this must be a terrific spider. Did you get it moving already with the gear motors?
I made a reference link to your Dual Worm Gear Drive Spider Rover from
http://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-creature/.
I hope you don't mind :)

Not yet! There's a lot of work to be done, different motors are being tried out. The worm gear is slipping so that's the next challenge to get this working.
