    Unless the arena gets very flipper unfriendly, Flippers will keep their part in the UK/EU scene.
    Our rules are a tad more benifical with the allowance of CO2.

    The really high power Feather flippers use about 6 kg of weight on the weapon, and have more weaponpower than the old guard. The ones that started the OOTA war. Chaos II, Firestorm, Bigger Brother and so on. So the bulldozer brick can have a nasty sting.

    Also, Battery tech has improved a lot. Where TAN and Gravity III used 8 kg of SLA, simular machines can do the task with 2 kg of LiFePo4

    I requested information from mentorn about the construction of the arena. I had an email back today from James at mentorn informing me the arena floor is made from 6mm steel. Does anyone have any more info as in arena weapons etc?

    It's not so much the materials the modern flippers are made from it's more the way they're built.

    They are keeping it secret. Given the Pit, flipper and Flame Pit set RW apart from BB I would expect those to return but aside from that... no one has a clue.

    Hi Guys

    I know its frustrating with the time scales being so tight however teams will know very soon.

    As far as fairness during the competition is concerned, it will be on another level from previous series of RW I can assure you. Both Mentorn & the BBC are making this a show with integrity so rules cant be bent or broken. As far as the event is concerned, just imagine it being like ours. If your over weight, go and get the hacksaw!

    Well at least there is one; PulverizeR subscribed for the show. But I agree with you that todays well developed hardox machines could easely take the hits. A few scratches, maybe a small hole, nothing to really be afraid of I guess. I just want to be part of this first new RobotWars and my old PulverizeR could be my ticket in, and I think with a little luck it could still give a good performance. Plans for a new machine are already here for two years now, so next year, who knows?
