      TX-108 is a heavyweight robot which was built by the Danby family from Bristol. It was built in 2001 where it fought in a Wild Card battle in Robot Wars Extreme 1 and beat Hypno-Disc, unfortunately due to the battle being so quick and not very exciting the producers didn't air it. It attempted to qualify for Robot Wars Series 5 the same year but failed losing to S3. It then tried again for Series 6 the next year but failed again losing to Reptirron the Second. TX-108 then tried again for the Seventh series the next year but failed again after losing its battle against 8645T and Mighty Mouse. TX-108 is one of the oldest robots that has been around that hasn't qualified for the show but has made appearances at events. It is now retired but the team fight with an improved version called TX-109.

      The gears in the carrier themselves are fine, it is the actual axe motor gear that is slipping. I think what has happened is when I drilled the holes

      Just make sure you keep the shafts of the gears solid/ fixed and you should have no issues

      No worries Tom, I know you tried and thanks for that. One day, I will get Jibril working properly and we'll have to have a grudge match

      It wasn't the fact that I didn't win, it was more a case of the robots underperforming. I have no problem (usually :P) with losing if the fight is good.
