Post by Team Invade »

Brand new heavyweight, bigger version of Explosion
Image
Made out of 3.2mm and 4mm Hardox, weight should be between 90kg and 95kg
Full pressure flipper, 140mm stroke, 100mm bore ram, two full-size buffers and one gas bottle

Not too sure how it works yet, shall be testing it at Worthing :D

Quite pleased with how it worked, but still a few things to do before Portsmouth, namely:
- Adding a hardox, removable skid to the back
- Re-routing the bungees
