This thread has been so quiet! Either everyone is being cagey about what they're entering or I'll only have to beat Rhys and Will to win!

Like I've said, we'll be coming, just holding off signing up until I know what I'm going to get finished.

I'm pretty sure six will be going (four ants, two fleas), but I'm not too sure what these robots will be. We've reverted back to using an RS valve with a servo for the pneumatic one, as the parker valve has a disappointingly small flow. All works well but it could be a challenge getting it all in the robot! If I can't get it going the parts will be dumped into a pusher to make up it's spot.

Ah yes, the joys of trying to fit an RS valve and lego ram into the four inch cube! It's not been going too well for me either, I seem to have a robot which is as tall as it is long, never a good sign. If you manage to fit it into a chassis as low as Spark's is, you're a better man than me.

Hi All,

Sorry about the quietness recently. Those of you who know my other hobbies can probably guess what's been taking up the majority of my free time.

I'm going to find some time this weekend to put in a load of updates, directions, maps, times, information, etc. Stay tuned ;).

You can enter up to 3 rollers and a cluster/walker
The latest version of the rules are at: http://robotwars101.org/ants/rules.htm

I'm planning on coming to this, I just need to turn the pile of bits I have into a robot(or several)...
I'll sign up when I know what/how many robots I'm gonna have. :)

Loads of updates added to first post. Please let me know if I've forgotten anything, or if there's anything that requires clarification.
