Re: RoboShowdown

My Appologies, But due to the numbers we have so far, We have changed the fight format to allow for no limit (other than antlog's limit) so if everyone could re register via antlog, that would be great.

hallo spinboy
the width of a circle (the man who spun the world)

in honesty other than a few gouges, there wasn't much damage to the polycarb... it was mainly the mounts fir flipper and wheels that failed

Re: Team Rocket Robotics Updates and Reports

these are some i made... inside it all is a fake pololu along with a filler to make up the width then some tyres from an old rc car that i made slick (i don't recommend slicks)

i may switch out the tyres for some treaded ones though
