With just over a month before this happens, does anyone care or dare to make a prediction as to who will win this?

didnt take my lap top and it was a long few days.
The bracket didnt exactly go our way and the bot gods werent in our favor lol
Still got a first round bye only to fight atomic.
One lose for still
Final put uppercut off the roof and broke a panel out(and a drum) only to fight a ridiculous FBS from arizona(Williams High School/Requim)
It got torn up really bad(Chromolly is NOT the way to go). A trip to home depot and it was back together
Atomic had a really odd match against another bot from PA for its first lose, then losing to rugburn because of something Alex and i didnt entirely think threw
Atomic took third to Rugburn and Clam Slam also from Williams
The Arizona kids really raised the bar and as always so did Dunwoody
Even with the small turn out it was by far the BEST competition Ive been to
The bots were ridiculous, the fights were awesome, safety was well above par and most of all it was actually ALOT of fun and very very laid back, the way it should be

Next year.......


o yeah we broke another beater, redesign

Softer metal RC go down to 40s. Then Weld the beater contact edge and grind them down. Also get rid of those tips. Just make a square head with a curve in them (see figure below), and use the extra weight to thicken those top beams. AND NO HOLES!

josh the holes actually havent been a problem at all. From switching from bushings to bearings the beater was never thickened around the shaft. It didnt help that they werent hardened the right way but thats where it has broken both times now. It just needs to be thicker there.

Bloomsburg wasnt even registered i'm guessing they had problems getting the schoolboard to allow them.

Requim was the fbs. Im sure you've seen the video of that fight.
Williams High School showed up with 3 really great bots.

it broke like it did here on the left but only on both sides. The breaks are actually very close to identical


I honestly cant wait to see the videos the NRL is having made from the competition, they should be pretty sick.

the fbs looked to be pretty strong, but it didn't win? It looked to move strangely, what was powering the drive?

Is Rugburn a horizontal and not in any current videos?

Clam slam?

I guess that whoever shot the first day video lost and left?

I took the judges a few minutes to decide the winner of the FBS match. If that side hadnt gotten as torn up as it did i think we would have one with aggression and control.
The FBS was pulling to much power and couldtn drive and spin at the same time till alex fixed it. They also had problems with there teeth breaking. They lost to rugburn by judges decesion after the teeth broke and with out any spares they bolted the broken teeth back on and lost to a 4 sided Ti wedge from MA.

Rugburns a horizontal/sweeper thats been around for years. Alex and I made 2 different pieces like a suggested to you to; use against SS but another team told rugburn we had it and they had a wedge to bolt on to get under it. We didnt get to use the bar and it turned out costing the match. The one we ended up deciding to use got bent and kept us from driving up side down. Alex had gotten a few good hits in till both bots went flying and he landed upside down.

Easiest way to explain clam slam is a humdinger 2 but vertical Ti sides instead of angled. Wicked beater.

They actually got lucky at the end. Rugburn ripped there beater out in the first final match so they took there tapout and fixed it. When they put the bots back in the arena Rugburn had lost a drive and forfeited.
I had told the Arizona kids how rugburn sheared one of our frame rails last year and to be careful. Since clam slam was in the arena already they threw a broken scale in for it to hit, after a few hits clam slams inner frame rail cracked exactly where i told them it would.

The videos from a northern pa team who tapped every fight i believe and they just havent gotten around to uploading the rest, the internet at the hotel was real flakey

So Rugburn won? and clam slam came in second? or visaversa???

You guys did have some really bad luck...things happen sometimes and it can go south quickly....

On a side note...I think that MLEC can safely claim to be national champs, in that I don't think that rugburn or the beater would have done all that well against us....but I could be wrong...often am... affraid

alot of people over look that its not all about winning. Yeah we had a tough competition but were the last ones to complain about it. We did what we could and theres always next year

Clam Slam got lucky and won, rugburn took second.

I cant say you guys are the official national champion. I really think your underestimating how solid these bots are and how good the drivers were.

Plus you guys have still to fight outside of Miami

edit: Once more videos come out you may be a little more impressed, i cant say i remember seeing any fights quite as impressive as i did there.
