    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.

    true , we did change the firmware but as an extension of that there was lots of VESC tuning which is about the same level of black art as melty brain

    If the machine stays in weight, anything is allowed as long the basics of the machine don't change.

    Nothing wrong with tacking extra bits of armour on from scrap material, so long as the robot remains in weight. Rapid borrowed a sheet of HDPE from us

    To be honest flails are a uncommon and Nuts 2 got lucky (not taking it away from them loved watching them beat carbide). Really hope Nuts 3 goes "pro"
