Well... I had a day to rest up and a gift of a school closing today so I guess I can post some updates on here.

Brackets are here:

I see Jeeves and Steve have some video posted already!

A great event as always.

I just wish there were more schools that would buy into this event and come out and fight it.

It is so much more laid back than BotsIQ that you can relax a little without feeling that someone is breathing down your back.

We arrived there Saturday Morning after a furious last second attempt at getting 3 robots running on Friday night. (We worked at school till about 12:30 AM. Went home got a shower 1/2 hour rest then back to school to load up and travel to Harrisburg)

We had a student wire a scorpion in backwards and light it up on Friday so 1 ESC down the tubes at the last second.

Robot Power assured me that we would get one that we ordered a week before hand and it is Tuesday and it still has not come to my doorstep. (Thanks Chris;-)

So we had 2 ESC's that were unheard of.

We made some new drums for the old bots and finished them but did not have time to check them spinning at full speed. Needless to say they bound up with some speed because of the 7075 shafts. (ordering some precision shafts this week for them)

Everyone is going to bearings and we went the other direction to bushings (I guess it shows that everyone is still doing trial and error)

The new drums would of helped us as the longer teeth failed and pulled off the drum in the semi finals.
They did it again in the finals.
No weapon no win (well usually as you will hear about in a moment)

We got there and managed to borrow a scorpion from Kyle. (Thanks a million Kyle)

Bar Exam was running fine but we found out that the weapon was binding and not spinning up.
They did not pass it in tech inspection because it would not spin up.

We switched to the old drum from last year at the last second before our first match.

As you see in Steves video against faytality he spun it up and they DQ'd him immediately.

The old drum ran fine but the longer teeth just bend the bolts back on a real hard impact.

After the switch Bar Exam was running fine the rest of the event.

Doomsday was the second one to get running. We tech'd it and it was fine but the Weapon ESC was giving us problems. (would not ramp up fast and then it would shut off). We fought faytality with it shutting off and lost. Then fought anonymous with it shutting off. Then switched it with the Mamba from Through the Roof. Ran fine after that. We had a rookie driving Doomsday in the first match and needless to say he was driving like a rookie but he did get experience.

A freshmen was building Through the Roof and getting it ready with the Scorpion that Kyle lent us and was rushed so much that he finished it right before he was to fight. He forgot to put the bolts back in the bottom of the plastics and with one hit the battery flew out as you can see in the video. Rookie mistakes.
I thought this bot had the most potential coming into this event. But not ready and forgetting to do stuff will really put you out quick.

Rocco never got a chance to run as the ESC never came in and once we borrowed one and got it running, another freshmen forgot to grease the gears so they locked up while teching the bot. It would of never made it as the weapon was binding on it anyway.

We never did get Vertical Horizons finished with all of the craziness going on so we were down to 4 bots actually competing. I thought we would get 5 running but too much to do to them and the weapons binding up threw us in about an hour loop trying to figure out why when they spun on the shafts fine before we left. (a little bur is all it takes so precision shafts is a must when going with bushings)( A new realm for us with bushings so you live and you learn)

So with the battles:
Bar Exam got DQ'd for spinning his weapon up in the first fight.
Doomsday had a rookie driver and bad weapon ESC in the first fight and lost.
Through the roof forfeited its first match after not being ready.
Through the roof then fought Anonymous and lost.
Bar Exam switched weapons and fought Iron Hide and won.
Doomsday fought Lolcano and won with the bad ESC still in there running somewhat.
Bar Exam had a win against WoeBot who never came back.
Doomsday fought Anonymous with the new ESC and won.
Bar Exam had a win against Faytality who never came back.

Doomsday fought Bloomsburg's Axiom and I thought we were in trouble and would not win this one but my Junior driver took over and switched the direction of the blade in the middle of the match and it seemed to work out better with the impacts. We knocked the lock nut off the top of the blade shaft and disabled their weapon and managed to score enough to win the match. Made the kids really happy.

So we had Bar Exam and Doomsday fight each other after Bloomsburg decided to go easy on each other. My kids had personal vendettas against each other and wanted to go all out against each other so I told them to make the decision. They said it's on! So they both get in the ring and the kids from Doomsday forgot to tighten the set screws back up and the weapon just sat still. They were pissed. Bar Exam had an easy win there.

So Bar Exam had to fight Pixie. Once again, I thought we had no chance. We went in there and Bar Exam got it's butt whipped.

BUT, Take a lesson from this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Steve looked at me and asked if he should tap out. I said just drive it and finish it out YOUR STILL MOVING! 12 seconds left in the match and Pixie stopped moving! Steve hollar'd.... Can they move???? the announcer gave them a 10 count and they could not move.... One heck of a lucky win there but We did not tap out like we should of and got the win. Kirk said they had old batteries in there and they died on them at the end. Luck put us into the finals.

All the hits from Pixie bent the teeth on the weapon and side skirts and we fixed the skirts so we could move but the weapon teeth were just too bent up. The first hit against X and they bent right back and hit the frame. The Bloomsburg kids took it easy on us and had a bunch of softer hits that allowed us to finish the final without tapping out. (thanks guys)

So it was a crazy event and an event that started the blood flowing in my kids. The thirst is on now as we came back to school yesterday and they want to do fundraising to buy the castle motors and ESC's for all of the bots. Not just the new ones which did not fight there.

It was really nice seeing Jeeves, Kyle, Kirk, Pete, Dan, Cody, Al, Ed, Zac, Brain and all of the rest of the competitors.

A great event and a great learning experience as always!

Fingers are tired now so I am done with the updates!
