    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.

    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
