    Information
    Barbaric Response is a robot from West Sussex built in 2002 where it entered Robot Wars series 6 from then on. It didn't have much luck in the UK Championships but it did however reach the Tag Team Terror final in Robot Wars Extreme 2 where they finished runners-up to Bulldog Breed and Robochicken. Barbaric Response has competed in a few events in the UK today as well after being retired for many years. Back after retirement at Burgess-hill 2008, it stunned everyone, beating Bigger Brother and Kronic on its way to the final where it was beaten by Iron-Awe 5. However, at the next event at Reading, it reached the final again and got vengeance on Iron-Awe 5 and beat them again a year later in Burgess Hill 2009 to become champions. Barbaric Response has definitely enjoyed a lot more success in the live events today after also finishing as semi-finalist in the FRA UK Championships 2009. The flipper is an awesome weapon in action against other robots.

    Hi David

    Firstly, I don't see using velcro to hold the link in place being an issue, however if a tech checker hypothetically did take

    Welcome! That looks like a really solid effort for a first go, you should be pleased!
    I've seen fuses being used as links in smaller classes but

    As far as I know, The fuse being the link is acceptable (I do this with my ants and have designed it into my feather) so long as removal renders the robot

    Glad the horrible noise had a reasonably benign explanation! It sounded a bit like the hole drive system was shredding itself.

    Look forward

    Team Death entered the October Robodojo with three robots and was semi successful.

    Danger UXB won two fights but I was unhappy with its drivability

    I need to get Azriel ready for EXR Cheltenham anyway so if it survives that, I might put in for Robodojo but likely at Full Combat rather than Sportsman.
