      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.

      Silver steel is OK. If you needed a upgrade to the silver steel, I sometimes have used tool steel bolts which are harder to bend.

      So 12mm sounds good to me, and I'm think of using the silver steel. I'm a bit of a dipstick and I looked back at one of my previous posts/questions about

      Jibril 1.6, the final incarnation of that version, used a 12mm steel shaft for the first stage and a 10mm titanium shaft for the second stage. For a MW,

      Quick question (apologies for the continuous amount of them), what would be the recommended diameter for the shaft, from previous experiences if you have
