Signed it up now. :)

Though Wedge Wedge Wedge won't be fighting, both the other 2 main drivers (Rory and Sam) aren't attending and I haven't had time to rebuild it into the version I am aiming for.

Oh I also sorted Test Robot Please Ignore's spinup issues.

Looking great Alex :P I had to shave about 18 grams off of error.exe 2 because I didn't calculate the spinner weight right and didn't have a set of scales to weigh it til last week XD can't wait to see ur bots tear up the competition like last time tho ^-^hope I don't face u in the first round XD

I'm still not entirely sure where the weight in the Wedges came from but they're now on properly mounted 1.5mm polycarb armour versus the dodgy 1mm last time. They're about 48.5g each in the end.

I followed your suggestion George and used a carbon fibre base for Don't Hug Me, that along with making the body thinner and shorter makes it far far harder for the bar to flex into the chassis (haven't managed it yet). New batteries and a quick tweak of the ESC program make it have a pretty decent spinup and the other plus is with the CF base it no longer resonates at above half speed. So I can full throttle and it is perfectly stable. :D

Thanks Kaazmin!
