    We didn't gave much traction, but that's because we were too front heavy. Other than that they were fine. Oddbot punching a hole through one of them had no effect on it.

    Considering we're using the 12V Argos motors, we need every advantage we can get, and increased spin speed is definitely an advantage. Thanks Rory.

    Finally got some time to work on building the new Bolts this past weekend. Our plan is to make the main box of the body as small as possible, leaving as much weight as possible free to go into the flail weaponry.

    Meaning we get this nice comparison between the old top panel, around 600mm , and the new one, a 300mm square.

    It shows nicely just how much space was empty inside the original, and why we were so easily pushed around and flipped out.
