    Information
    Behemoth is a robot that has continued to fight on 16 years after its first ever appearance on Robot Wars in 1998, it was built in Hemel Hempstead near London by brothers Anthony & Michael Pritchard and their friend Kane Aston. Behemoth's best moments in Robot Wars have been reaching the semi-finals of Robot Wars series 2 and finishing as runner-up to Razer in the First World Championship, but suffered from bad luck from Series 4 onwards where it has been very unlucky in competition. Behemoth is in its eighth incarnation today as Evolution VIII with improvements to virtually every aspect of the design but maintaining much of the original machine.

    Most recently Behemoth was seeded sixth in the 2014 UK Heavyweight Championships and won the 2014 Tag Team Championship with The Saint.

    Slightly oversized for screw, and slightly undersized for bolt. Excellent. Easily a Screwfix job. Much appreciated Nick.

    You shouldn't need any inserts, just a slightly oversized hole for the screw and an exact or slightly under-size hole for the nut so they don't fall out.

    HW motor advise needed for school team.

    Give those 30V and 8" wheels and you have a very basic HW drive. Support the wheels from both sides tough.
