    The fans on the Vyper (and Victors ) still are vurnable. Some of the ESC's have them to boost performance further (increased running time with heavy loads), others just use them as a pure...

    Have a go with fans. Please tell us the results. I personaly won't use a fan in a robot wars machine. Tried it a few times, failed miserably. Even with extensive shock mounting. Had even...

    Fans in robotwars belong in the stands, not in the machines. Tried that. From the cheapest recycled computer fans, to the most sturdy industrial versions Pabst could deliver. Shocks like our...

    If cost is a hindrance, start smaller. A heavy will cost you a 2de hand car in the run of a few years. It ain't a cheap hobby. On the other hand, it's a very satisfying hobby that will boost your...

    What do you call cheap? ESC's that are difficult to control? Lacking fine control, making the machine unsteerable? Or blowing up every fight some demand is placed upon them? A good ESC is...

    The big teeth that do the work destroying the opponents. A Monoblock spare disk is a good plan. I think you'll need it. On the gear-rings. I hope you will do the spare disk with full length...
