I'd like to tell you that all you have to do is hit them hard enough ONE time and it'll be over, but you might have your hands full...it looks like a world class line up, with a lot of proven bots....

On the other hand...2 things

1) Your fights should not last all that long, win or lose affraid

2) Driving the wedge bots will be a LONG uphill battle Twisted Evil

Gonna have to dial them both in, no matter what. From the videos i saw they look very very fast. perhaps too fast...

Just run them on low rates ...unless you need to push hard....and like you say, dial in the expo, etc.

They are very fast. the speed might come in handly in such a big arena....

I plan on running the wedges wide open and hit anything as hard as I can....they might throw me out if all I hit is the walls and end up damaging them... lol!

We'll see if those plastic and aluminum bots can take the hit

hit ss with one huge hit from the begining, a problem he has is the top tube warping from his weapon power. With such a weapon almost on the ground it wouldnt take alot to tweak to where it doesnt work
Although he pretty much switches to a new frame after every fight i've heard

His frame looks very simple, i wouldn't see why not.


I must beat SS, if rj gets the 12 pounders that is...

If I had it out for undercutters, I would go with the wedge and fork attachment..If it works, it will be very embarrassing especially if the undercutter never gets to touch your bot with his blade.. affraid

Cody..do you have a link to a video where some bot with a long floppy fork totally neutralizes megabyte by hooking onto the pipe on top and taking it to the wall??

That would have been a good strategy for a Biohazard/Megabyte rematch....after bio got totally trashed.....

I saw it somewhere on youtube....It was pretty cool....we're going underground with the fork thing for a bit...could be a good surprise for the moto crowd....but some of it might be installed and tested on Son of Thump in January , if it has the weight to spare.....

Yes, I think that was it.

I remember that thing flapping in the wind,,,but I thought that it won...guess not

But the idea is interesting

Thanks Cody

edit: That thing looked like it was made out of polycarb??? I'm amazed that it did that well before breaking

I'm amazed that he was able to hold off the spinner for that long, with maybe 1/4" lexan flapping in the wind like that

Anyhow that's a possible plan..with maybe 1 or 2 added twists!!!..if we have the weight

Stay tuned

btw: the alu inner frame for the wedge is pretty much done!!!

I have a GREAT idea on how to keep SS away from the wedge bot. It would never get hit, and you will most likely beat him by judges decision...

hmmmmm

and if we go inverted???

Nah..this will be much better and possibly powered and maybe even called 'The Clamp'

need to get all the alu and ti cut so that we can see how it sizes up weight wise.....but.....

When converting these to 15's..it should be really interesting....as in stop the spin, clamp and take out the trash......for both horizontals and verticals...lol..... affraid

bounce Twisted Evil Very Happy Laughing
