I didn't get to fight the lemon unfortunately.

The lemon needed to be more practical I think - it had so little weight to it that it wasn't much of an opponent for anything :( I'll have to use all the steel to make up for that...

Joey squeezed that lemon until the pips came out
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left

Well, that was an unexpected turn of events! Glad to have finally broken the Alex/Andy winning spree, and with a non-3D printed spiner at that:P

Cheers to Dan and everyone else who organised it; was a great event and seemed to all go smoothly :)

It's a shame you'll have to fix Alex's esc and various others, and I fear I may have to add exuberANT to the list of things needing your time as 1 wheel doesn't work and I can't tell if it's the battered receiver or actually a motor

Just been going through the results and it looks like three of my 4 robots were taken out by a combination of Alex, Rory, Andy and Scott.
The Fight results page link seems to be missing somehow but if you select the one on the AWS49 page and change the eventid=2 to eventid=3 you get there.

By the look of the results, you need to build more spinners Pete! :L

I must admit that thought had crossed my mind.
With a spinner I sometimes win despite my driving where as with my lifter or pusher I need to maneuver close to the drop off.

There were 5 spinners in the top 10; don't think that's happened for quite a while!

Also on a related note, have to say I'm really liking Antlog's new features; makes it much easier to assess how each robot did and whether changes improved performance or not...
