    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.

    Likewise Greg! Your diary was one of my most read bookmarks. The interlocking method definitely adds strength and rigidity.

    Great write-up Greg, very thorough and detailed. The new WeeWoo looked amazing! It was great fun to fight in the crazy axebots vs clusterbots whiteboard

    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.

    Yeah I've just tried editing a post and I'm also having this problem.
    Also I can't upload pictures using "insert image" button - the screen

    Has anyone else noticed that when you try to edit a post that the spinner icon just sits there spinning away without doing anything? Tried to do this

    I am not sure if this is why specific to this hobby, however in my experience doing lots of electrics, odd things can happen if you sever a connection

    Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but if there any reason why the interlink can't be on the negative terminal? Cars and heavy machinery are isolated on
