    hahahaha, it is "only" 44Kg I think - I don't recall seeing it being lifted on and off the pen though. I definitely saw it on a wheeled platform of some description at Guildford, will need to remember to get one of those.

    So here is the bad news - Kaizen is very likely not going to Grantham. The wheel issues and the lack of time owing to real world stuff means that I can't dedicate enough time to getting it battle ready. I am dedicated to getting the whole thing finished in time for EXR Chatham though.

    The good news is that the wheel hubs have been adapted and fitted, just needs threadlocking in all the right places and then I can finally test it. Front polycarbonate panels are mounted and all of the steel roofing brackets are mounted. Just need to not sleep now for the next 10 weeks to get it done now :P

    That's a pity -I was looking forward to seeing or even fighting
    a new heavyweight at events.

    I am fairly sure there is another new HW at Grantham as well. If I can get Kaizen moving by tomorrow evening, then maybe, just maybe... it definitely won't have a weapon though.

    Well I certainly look forward to seeing Kaizen fighting, but don't feel like rushing to get the bot ready ASAP if it'll half kill you to do it and result in a fragile bot. There are some pretty powerful MW's already in the UK; it would be a shame for the bot to be destroyed before it was truly finished! It's up to you at the end of the day, but if there is going to be a middleweight tournament later in the year, it may be worth focusing on being as ready as can be for the premier event over all other shows.

    This is the point I keep on debating with myself. Technically, I can get it mobile before Grantham and given it is Team Kaizen's anniversary, I want to celebrate it in style. I do have a backup just in case but this has been a long time coming and whilst it would definitely not have an offensive capacity beyond pushing power, it is solid at least.
