I seem to remember there was some minor interest back in the day, but it was mainly overweight ants or ants with weight added :roll: i think the original stewie was designed as a super-antweight. there was some interest a year or so back with me and Jack Evans, but he became less active and i think the idea kind of fizzled out

you can build one if you want, but dont expect there to be many opponents (i may build one just for the heck of it) i think the rules are kicking around somewhere, although it may have been lost when the forum was moved ages ago (i think?) i know a few ancient threads were lost

Jonno's new Battle Antz qualify as Super-ants, so thats the only competition you're likely to get.

I built a Superant in my D.T class today, with the fancy new laser cutter, its called the matador: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWwxJs6m ... ideo_title

i like it, its not done yet, got a few more fancy features to add in yet, but that gives you a small idea of whats going on ;-)
