    Not sure how eager / quick to reply they'll be. What with the new series already filmed, and its probably too soon for them to know if it'll be recommissioned. I was present at the filming earlier this month, and Dara did repeatedly ask if they'd be back, with another eliminated competitor saying they'd be back without being prompted. Being a positive person, I'm going to hope that means they know already...

    The FRA rules state explicitly that it requires 2 degrees of freedom to classify as a walker. If you have any specific questions its best to ask the EO of the event your attending or a recognised Tech Checker.

    I've now received a reply form Robot Wars.

    Although each leg would have 2 degrees of freedom, it is the continuous rotation that qualifies it as a shuffler. As Robot Wars qualifies robots with rolling or sliding mechanisms as shufflers, It looks like continuous rotation counts as a rolling mechanism and so only gets the shuffler allowance under Robot Wars rules and no extra allowance under FRA rules.
