    As I've mentioned before, I've used the 13.7:1 planetary gearboxes with the 18V 775 motors that Gimson sell as a single unit to great effect on 6S though I'd say that was the upper limits of its...

    Comes down to driving skill in that instance one would think if the brick doesn't have any active weaponry and/or exploitable ground clearance in the case of wedges. Against spinners, depends on how...

    I don't think you need the BEC in this instance but you will need to check the VEXs to see if they have a BEC in them (I think they do). You'd wire...

    I'd connect it up directly as this cuts down on weight and simplicity to save weight (it is what I did on Ikari) but I do know of at least one belt and pulley system in the AW class, which obviously...

    What I do with keyed shafts and grub screws these days is drill an indent into the shaft just wide enough for the grub screw to sit in and then use lockthread to hold it in. Works well enough on my...

    From a conversation I overheard at Ant Freeze 6, no. The problem is that the receiver used on the NanoTwo is not in stock at the moment. If you contact Rory on here, he might be able to shed some...

    Ikari
    So Ikari 2.0 is probably best known for dying due to spinners. At both Ant Freeze 6 and BotFest 2, the robot has come apart in fashion due to horizontal spinners and I've been trying to figure...

    If there isn't any smoke or any heat when the NanoTwo is on, I'd say you were OK. I've cooked my NanoTwo by having a servo plugged in the wrong way (Ikari) so bleh. With the fuse, I'd guess you'd be...

    The M42/M6 junction was closed off when I got there so had to go up the A449/A38 to get back on, which didn't help. There was a hold up on the M25 by Heathrow as well but nothing particularly bad.

    I don't recall Pullover using Acetate at all, that might help. Amai is biased at the front to scrape along the floor quite sharply which I guess does. I don't think there was any difference really...

    Yeah, Death in the afternoon was the overhead bar spinner which lost it's blade in one fight. I think that might work for Pullover, it is quite empty in the front of that wedge I seem to recall.
