    Thanks for the link I've been following Ellis quite a bit.

    I've built featherweight in the past when I lived in Oz never completed but for interest, started as a robot lawnmower lol. HDPE great for featherweight monocoque but heavyweight forces it's too soft as a chassis I changed to thin aluminium as the plastic was melting in Queensland sun!

    No chance of that In Paisley lol!

    Those materials are great in a featherweight but too soft for heavyweight with robots like carbide melting face.

    Plus Ellis has access to tools I simply don't have with loads of experience and funds.

    Hardox obviously is the material of choice I just fancy something different.

    Going from Queensland sun to Paisley must have been a shock to the system
    Suppose at least you're just down the road from the Robot Wars studio!
