okay.. This eggbeater doesn't really look like SnS, but the original drawing on the white board at school resembled it almost exactly! Turns out that it's the same weight as the drum is now.. We'll need to lighten it a bit. but here's a screenshot!

lol dont worry about being over kill man, ours is 1.5'' thick the whole way around. we KNOW that its over board but last year in the same grudge match that killed our axi executer bent our beater flat pretty beater into a curved pice of poo bcuz we were to thin near the shaft
our is just plain stell though we need to find a place that can heat treat.

I was considering doing the staggered teeth like you did.. and still might. how thick are the sides? you said they were too thin.. how thick are they now? also, how wide is it? ours is 7"

more expensive! lol Much more powerful, and the Axi's are outrunners, as compared to this which is an inrunner. We're getting something around 3.75 HP out of ours, after all we're running it with the worlds largest lipo pack, 6cell 5000mAh, and a 180Amp Castle controller! it's exciting

ours is a Phoenix 180.

Concerning the competition, there isn't any. There will NOT be a June competition labeled Rumble @ the Rock. Fail.
