    Information
    13 Black is a robot from Leicestershire which was built for Series 5 of Robot Wars where it fell in the heats on a judges decision to Corkscrew. It was later re-modified for 2002 the following year where it had better success, causing a lot of carnage in its heat taking out Double Trouble and the seeded Stinger before falling in the Semi-final to Firestorm. 13 Black is armed with two fast powerful spinning discs which didn't just cause destruction to whichever robots came near it, but when 13 Black was flipped. The discs were designed to get traction on the floor and make it "crab walk" around the arena which always provided a laugh for the audience!

    The wedge looks very nice! Good looking angle, I'll be keeping an eye out for the results.

    Good look!

    BOB BW Series

    There's plenty of force in it too, this is what it did to 1.8mm titanium, and underneath it is 10mm aluminium

    So Kaizen is ready as it will ever be. At the last minute, I fitted a 10mm thick polycarbonate wedge plate, primarily to square off the the side armour

    There is a function in the SimonK assembly which can hard code how many cells it is expecting (CELL_COUNT) and get it to bleep how many cells it is detecting

    BOB BW Series

    This is robot BW I faced, it's a mini PP3D.

    My robot wasn't in this one, I'm not sure if any one recorded that one.
