    Information
    Ansgar 3 is a German heavyweight robot that was built in 2003 by the Thomsen family from Ahrienviol. The first versions of the machine fought in the International competitions of Robot Wars as did the 3rd. The first Ansgar took part in the Second World Championships where it was beaten by Manta. It was rebuilt again for the German Robot Wars as Ansgar's Revenge where it was eliminated in the first round of its heat. Ansgar 3 qualified for the 3rd World Championships held at the end of the UK Seventh series of Robot Wars where it lost in the first round to Storm 2. Ansgar 3 was originally built as a walker and had a spinning blade weighing 10kg, but for the live events (which the majority of which don't cater for those weapons), it was rebuilt to being wheeled and having ramming spikes.

    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.

    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
