    Information
    Axe Awe is Team Iron-Awes second entry into Robot Wars and was built for the year 2001 where it was involved one of the most famous battles against Wheely Big Cheese as it was thrown 15 feet in the air and out the arena after getting flipped from the centre of the arena. The axe was capable of going through most materials and could self-right the robot in style. Nowadays Axe-Awe is retired but it can be seen on display at live events.

    Removable link rule clarification

    In a car, negative and positive are very different from a practical point of view. The battery negative is grounded to the chassis, so it's not insulated.
