I've had a few scary melty moments, in that I only have a makeshift test area....the 12 should be interesting and might be soon or not for a while

These cages just aren't strong enough for the new and improved (more destructive) robots.

Yeah, it doesn't make sense for the test box to be weaker than the battle box (battle box walls are about 1"-1.5") - after all, even though it's smaller you're still putting a 120 lb robot inside and running its weapons.

that was a long time ago with the first excellerator. I know the guys who built it (I built Copperheads 1 and 2 in their garage) cause they live in Sarasota. It was pretty intense lol. They certainly learned from that, as did BotsIQ haha.
